China Glaze Naughty and Nice

I may or may not have jumped for joy when Mr. FedEx stopped at my house this morning.  The best part is that he honks his horn three times - as to alert me?  Anyway, I threw on clothing (I was in PJs) and ran out there like a kid on Christmas morning (literally).  Yes, it was my China Glaze "Naughty or Nice" winter collection!  As I do, I'm swatching by the the color not collection, so it's going to take me a few weeks to get through this collection.  However, I might post 2 a day, depending on how I get stuff swatched.  I really like to take my time and let you know how it applied.  I wear top coat always, so I have to say, I'm not good when it comes to a wear test - I never wear anything over a week anyway!

First up is Naughty and Nice which is listed as a deeply rich wine creme.  Deeply rich apparently means black :P  I used a base of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Naughty and Nice and a top of Seche Vite.  I did note that this polish's formula was a bit runny thick.  Now that sounds like a huge contradiction, I know.  It was like the Vintage Vixen collection - you had to wipe both sides of the brush on the neck of the bottle because at first the polish felt like it was thick but then you'd get a glob of polish that came down from the handle and splurted on your nail (if you didn't wipe it).  I also think it doesn't help that this stuff was sitting on a plane and then several trucks before it got to me, so it needs to settle a bit.  I prefer to store all my bottles standing straight up, labels out (in brand and then rainbow order.  Oh yes, I'm that specific).

Check how dark this color is!  The red near my cuticles isn't a picture flaw, it's the first coat's ending of the color.  It's just a very dark purple!

In the shade, this color is just black.  Hah.  But it's very shiny!

Just so you can see, this is what it looks like on my cotton round when I removed it.  It's a very dark plum alright - good stuff.  I think it would be great for a Christmas party with some Party Hearty layered over it!  ^_^
