China Glaze CRYSTAL BALL
I am now officially in Hallowe’en countdown, mainly because I get to wear loads of ace vampy colours!
Today I have CHINA GLAZE Crystal Ball which I think came from the same Hallowe’en Collection as Fortune Teller. CB is basically a dark vampy burgundy with loads of holographic dust thrown in. This was a free gift from the amazing Janet at Boulder Creek Boutique. Here we go …
I have to say, most of the images my crack dealer found for me (ie Google images) are quite poor, and really don’t do it justice. This is a lovely serene autumnal burgundy, not too dark, and there is a floaty quality to it – really, it just doesn’t have that impenetrable darkness that a lot of burgundys have.
The holo dust is barely there in some lights, and then like fairy babies twinkling in others. It’s subtle, and doesn’t detract from the winey colour of the base polish.
Personally I love it. I think this is a great colour for autumn – luscious, slightly decayed and ever so nocturnal.
Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
