China Glaze Lavender Lingo

While on a small spree at Head2ToeBeauty, I finally decided to get China Glaze Lavender Lingo from the Patent Leather II collection, now discontinued.  This is a creme, and was a bit streaky - it took 3 thick coats to get it opaque.  I'm also pretty confused on the color - this doesn't look lavender to me.  I'm sorry for the icky pictures - it's been pouring like mad here.  This is the first time in three years that we haven't had a drought for the month of February, please bring on the sun!

Now to the pictures!  First up "sun" which is actually loads of clouds with rain.

Then a few "shade" which was still just lots of clouds and rain.

And finally one with a flash which was the most true to life color - this is such a pinkie color!

China Glaze [official website] can be found online through several etailers, including my favorite Head2Toe Beauty [official website], Sally's Beauty Supply [official website] as well asTransDesign [official website].


  1. This is very pretty!! But I agree - not lavender! More pinkie to me, with a hint of peach perhaps? Pretty nonetheless!

  2. I've never seen this color before- but it's really really pretty! Your swatch is flawless btw! xo

  3. I don't think the person who made this knows the true colour of lavender, because this is not that colour at all! It is a peachy-pink to me!

  4. LOL yeah it's a great pink but a horrid lavender ^_^

  5. It is a pretty color but I agree.. where is the lavender! Such a teasing name! :D

  6. This is very pretty but not even close to a lavender. That's why I have a hard time ordering polish online. I really need to see them in person (or wonderful bloggers great swatches!) since names can be so misleading.
