China Glaze Point Me to the Party Swatches & Review! (Layered Over KBShimmer Sarong Place, Sarong Time)

China Glaze Point Me to the Party Swatches & ReviewLike an explosion of neon fireworks, China Glaze Point Me to the Party from the Electric Nights Collection is a must-have nail polish, as far as I’m concerned!

For a big mainstream company, I was pleasantly surprised to see it channeling a look that is more reminiscent of indie nail polishes. (Since I don’t have too many indies in my collection, this got me very excited!)

Neons are some of my favourite lacquers to wear any season because they are an instant pick-me-up. Now, with China Glaze Point Me to the Party, you could layer a neon base with a multicoloured neon glitter topper!

For this manicure, I layered China Glaze Point Me to the Party over my existing manicure, which was KBShimmer Sarong Place, Sarong Time (from the Summer 2015 Collection), which I reviewed in-depth yesterday.

China Glaze Electric Nights Skittle Manicure & Mini Review of 3 Shades

China Glaze Electric Nights Nail ArtWhen I purchased the China Glaze Electric Nights Collection Mini Set about two months ago, I knew that I’d have to wear a manicure featuring more than one shade.

(Sometimes being indecisive about what to wear can lead to a fun nail look!)

This China Glaze Electric Nights Skittle Manicure was the result. (You got a sneak peek of it about three weeks ago on social media.)

Many times when I looked at my nails, I kept thinking, “Nails Just Wanna Have Fun,” sung to the melody of Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! 😉

Today, I show you tons of manicure photos (including bottle shots), and I share mini reviews on each of the colours: Daisy Know My Name? (yellow), DJ Blue My Mind (blue), and Treble Maker (green).

This collection has already been out for some time. (The mini set that I have is trickier to find now, but you should be able to locate the full-size bottles easily.)

P.S. If you like these colours, you’ll want to keep your eagle eye on Swatch And Learn because I’m going to have a fun worldwide giveaway coming up really soon! *Hint hint*

China Glaze Red-y to Rave Swatches & Review

China Glaze Red-y to Rave Swatches & ReviewChina Glaze Red-y to Rave from the Electric Nights Collection is a neon reddish orange that supposedly glows under a black light.

(I wore this a while ago after trimming my nails short. I tend to let my nails grow long and then I cut them very short instead of maintaining a particular length. Anyone else the same way?)

Unfortunately, I don’t own a black light, so I couldn’t show you how it lights up.

Interesting thing that one of my friends pointed out: China Glaze seems to really like using the “Red-y” pun in the names of their polishes. 😉 There’s Adventure Red-y and Red-y & Willing, off the top of my head.

Several weeks ago I purchased the cute China Glaze Baby Beats Micro Mini Set that includes six of the shades in the Electric Nights Collection. Mini bottles are so fun and collectible, so I find them difficult to resist. (Plus the small brushes are ideal for my tiny toes. I don’t give myself a pedicure too often, but when I do, I love using a neon nail polish!)

Surprise Worldwide Giveaway!

Mini nail polishes are so cute and collectible. I love how they allow you to try out several different colours without committing to a full-size bottle of each. And, if you have small feet like I do, you know that mini lacquers have the ideal brush to paint your little toenails with!

When I came across the new China Glaze Road Trip Travel Sized Mini Set, I purchased a set for myself and one for you, so we can be nail twins! 😉

Nail Art Tutorial: Santa Claus Nails

Santa Claus Nail Art TutorialBack in 2011, I did Santa Nail Art where each nail featured The Big Man in Red’s suit. I really loved that design, and even though I wanted to wear it again, it was time for a challenge. (Click to see my step-by-step tutorial for the Santa Suit Nail Art!)

After seeing The Little Canvas’ cute nails with Kris Kringle’s face, I knew I had to try my hand at this design. Although mine didn’t turn out as well as neatly as hers, I had tons of fun painting this, and it was fun to bring my Santa Claus gang with me everywhere I went! (Thanks to The Little Canvas for the inspiration!)

Haha, I intended the Santas to be smirking or to at least look happy, but I guess my nail striper brush was a bit too thick and I was rushing a little. So, some of my Santas look like they’re being very sarcastic. Haha, can you spot which one drank too much of the spiked elves’ Christmas punch? 😛

Hey, it would be neat to combine this and the santa-suit design in a single manicure. You could even paint Santa’s hat on one nail. That would allow you to paint a whole bunch of different designs.
