Hello from Vegas! It has been a great first day here at Cosmoprof North America Las Vegas and while I have tons to show you, first I'm going to start with the brand that started ME off - China Glaze!
China Glaze had their display of On Safari, the fall 2012 collection up first. However, I will be posting the official press release and my own swatches of that in the coming weeks.
Next was the Bohemian Collection, which you may have see the press release on other blogs. These will be launching in August 2012 and yes, you do see a dupe to Chanel Peridot! This was really a metallic duochrome collection, which I can see being something I'd love to wear during the fall and into the winter months.
China Glaze has also decided to bring out another round magnetic polish called Magnetix II launching in September 2012. Along with the new colors is a new magnet that can great a bullseye, 3 parallel lines or a "Bingo grid" as I'm calling it.
For the Halloween season, we have Wicked, a 6 piece launching in October. Also for you fans of glow-in-the-dark, Gholish Glow will be sold in the 4 pack only. The green glitter is a bit like last year's but less dark. The grey has beautiful blue microglitter. The blue has this awesome vampy purple tone to it. The glitter is fantastic! Orange with micro-rainbow-glitter. The red is a bit orange based. The final glitter is a lot like the Capitol Colours Luxe and Lush except instead of flakies/shards of glitter, it's all glitter.
The Holiday Joy collection is a 12 piece launching in November/December which includes 13 new gift sets. Five of the polishes will be going into the core line but I can't tell you which ones. I was asked not to photograph those yet, so they are not available for PolishGalore at this time.
Coming out in Spring 2013 is Avant Garden, a pretty 12 piece collection that is both sweet and slightly pastel.
Also launching as a Sally Beauty Supply Exclusive are real nail polish strips. Just like others that are out on the market, they are easy to apply and remove with normal nail polish remover. I did get a couple of sets to take home so I can try them out myself.
And now, what you have ALL been waiting for. So, back in the day was China Glaze OMG (Holographic) collection. It consisted of strong linear holographics with great wear time. Then the actual holographic particles was removed from the US market and polish lovers cried. China Glaze attempted with Tronica to bring back this beloved product, but it just wasn't quite there. Well, China Glaze loves you as much as you love China Glaze, and they were able to get their hands on actual holographic material for nail polish. This stuff is not cheap. There will be a price increase on this collection. Launching in Summer 2013 - it's Hologlam!!!!
Yes, 12 colors. The formula, from what I'm told, is even better than the original. Drool away.
There were four other collections that China Glaze is coming out with that unfortunately, I'm not able to photograph or talk about but I think I can say that China Glaze has definitely been listening to their fans. They are really stepping up the level of creativity in their line, and I, as always, am SUPER happy about it.
