Sally Haul and BUTTER london Wallis swatches.

Hey everyone!  Sorry for my absence after my intro post, but I work two jobs, one full-time and another part-time, so I have very few opportunities to pause and take photos!  But now I have a day off on sunday and we will be SWATCHING IT UP.

Now, I am so excited to be able to show you these next photos!  I LOVE the Hunger Games novels, so when China Glaze announced the Hunger Games collection, I knew I had to have them.  I bought 6(7 if you count my Electrify backup!) and I love them all and can't wait to swatch them this weekend.

I also got two of the China Glaze Magnetix polishes(and the magnets were FREE at Sally!  SCORE!) so I'll have those for you too in the near future.  I think I'm going to get a third of these.

On top:  Electrify x2.  STUNNING.
L-R: Riveting, Luxe and Lush, Stone Cold, Dress Me Up, Smoke and Ashes. 

Magnets on top.
Pull Me Close and Instant Chemistry.  I think I might get the green as well.


So I'm not sure if perhaps I got a dud bottle, but the formula on this one left a lot of be desired for me.  It was thick and chunky and difficult to maneuver onto the nail.  It was opaque in two coats but I did three to attempt to cover up the slight chunkiness I experienced.  I used Butter London's nail fertiliser and topcoat, and experienced shrinkage, which I'm not happy with.

BUT it still gets a pass from me because of the beautiful colour!  I cannot say anything bad about that.  Look at it!  LOOK AT IT!  It almost glows.  I was getting compliments all day.  It's also totally unique, and I have nothing like this.  

I'd give it a B.

Blurry, but an excellent representation of the colour.  It's almost lit from within. 

 As you can see, I had some topcoat shrinkage!  Odd, as I used Butter London's topcoat!  Also forgive my sad cuticles.  Allergic reaction to something :(


  1. Ha! Great minds we picked up the same 2 colors of the magnetic polish. All the other colors i own in the Claires/Icing brand.

    1. I'm PRAYING that the Icing in the mall I'm going to today has some of the magnetic ones so I can try theirs. I'm posting the CG swatches now, and I love them both, but my poor pinky nail was too small for the starburst :(

    1. Thanks! I just bought a new camera and I'm still getting the hang of it.
