China Glaze Heli-Yum

I was pretty excited to try this color in the Up And Away 2010 Spring Collection - China Glaze Heli-Yum.  China Glaze describes this color as "raspberry", so I'm interested in swatching it next to both Raspberry Festival from the Summer Days 2009 Summer Collection, and Sneaker Head from the Kicks Collection (also released in 2009).  But first, let's look at Heli-Yum!

This is another one coater!  I used a base coat of Seche Natural, one coat of Heli-Yum, and then one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

  1. Thanks! I hope to get those comparison swatches tomorrow :)

  2. Aw, so pretty! May I ask, did China Glaze contact you or did you have to contact them to get a PR sample? By the time I get my hands on something cool from the shops, everyone else has already blogged about it! :D

  3. I think this is going to be one of my favorites from this collection. It's so pretty!

  4. That's incredible!
    Btw, I'm interested in what Asami asket too ^_^

  5. Asami & MissMarlboro: For this particular collection, China Glaze did contact me but this was only after several previous correspondence back and forth through Twitter. I have purchased well over 160 bottles of China Glaze to date, and have shared my obsession through both Twitter and Facebook - uploading NOTD, reviews, and then of course this blog.

    My best advice is to contact the companies personally starting through something like Twitter. There are several polish companies already tweeting (China Glaze, Zoya, Essie). The worst a company can tell you is "no" but remember that it's not personal, it's business.

  6. Thank you! You were very sweet to tell us ^_^

    PS if you want I'm MissMarlboro on twitter too!

  7. I need to get this collection. It's so pretty. I really like the way this color looks.

  8. Gorgeous color! This is one of my favorites of the collection and so perfect for any occasion really.

  9. I LOVE this color on you! This is one of my faves in the Up&Away Collection!

  10. Thank you so much for the info!
