China Glaze Material Girl

Happy New Years Eve (kinda - I mean, it's a whole 23 hours until I'm sipping champagne and watching the ball drop)!  I thought I'd check out some glitters for the holiday, and realized I could post China Glaze Material Girl from the Eye Candy collection.  Did anyone else think that the promo picture looked like Christina Aguilera?  So this collection was duped by both Wet n Wild and Sally Hansen, but more about that later.  Notice that in the bottle picture, it almost looks like there is some holographic glitter in there, but nope - it's just all pink glitter in a clear base.

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 3 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry.  The formula worked well but the glitter was gritty, even with the top coat.

Here in the sun, I had to think if this was Pom Pom for a minute!  Nope, the pink is lighter in color but still - it works!  I'm shocked at how opaque it is, despite being in a clear base.  Good job ChG!

The shade is also pretty lovely.  Notice the different sizes of glitter - large, small and micro.

Finally we have indoors with the flash - nothing new to say.  I think this color really said Marilyn to me - that classic pink dress from her Gentlemen Prefer Blondes movie (although that was super hot pink).  Don't forget your felt to remove this glitter!  (I'll have a post up soon for glitter removal!)

China Glaze can be found online through several etailers, including my favorite Head2Toe Beauty, Sally's Beauty Supply as well as TransDesign.  You can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
