It seems like every few months I'll get the nail polish bug and it'll completely take over my life. I'm pretty sure that my sister and friend Lisa have it chronically and every so often I pick up the sickness that leaves my den smelling like acetone and my nails looking awesome. So, really no complaints.
Picked up a few China Glaze polishes when my sister drove me to Sallys to unload a Christmas gift card and at the same time drive my nephew crazy by bringing him into a makeup store but not letting him touch any of the many many small things lining the shelves perfectly within his reach.
One of the polishes I walked out with was Strawberry Fields.
Can I just say how much I love good quality polishes!?
I've been a cheap buyer my whole life and have always used Wet n Wild because it was under 3 bucks. Then Sinful Colors had a 99 cent sale one day and I went crazy. And while I love their colors and the quality isn't exactly terrible, there's something that can be said about the jump in quality between certain brands that I've noticed.
My three most expensive polishes (that I lucked out and got for free with a coupon) go on like Butter (Butter London to be exact). And China Glaze, a more expensive brand (at least in my budget) proved to have that similar beautiful quality of the product and the color.
Strawberry Fields is a gorgeous rosey pink (and we all know how much I love pink) with a beautiful gold shimmer that almost looks a little orange in the right light. I'm obsessed with duo-chromes and colors that change depending on the light around you. This has immediately joined the ranks of my top favorite colors.
