China Glaze spam - sheer and light

I have some polishes here for you today that are not my taste much. I would not call them ugly but they just are not for me. You see, I don´t like sheer polishes much as I don´t like the way my nails look with them. I need full coverage. I also think that these kind of polishes look much better on shorter nails. So my today´s post is for all of you who like sheer polishes or have shorter nails. I used three to four coats on most of these. Hope I don´t scare you with my not perfectly white nails...

GOLDEN MERINGUE

HEAVEN

INNOCENCE

JETSTREAM

OXYGEN

PRINCESS GRACE

PURE ELEGANCE

RAINBOW

SUMMER RAIN

TEMPTATION CARNATION

  3. I agree with you, these types of polishes are not my favorites. However, there's definitely some good ones in the bunch that really look nice on you! I'm glad you swatched these, it's rare that people swatch the "ugly duckling" polishes for their blogs and it's always good to have references of them =)

    1. Thanks for this. It was not easy posting my nails like this. I really think I don´t look good in most of these.

  4. I have lots of these but I've never worn them by themselves! Thanks for the post, I didn't realize how beautiful they were! :)

  5. These are pretty polishes but I don't like sheer much either. I always layer my sheer polishes over something else. I have stained nails (which I'm trying to take care of, but its a slow process) and so sheer just doesn't work on me. The first one is my favorite of the bunch but I'm also a big fan of gold! These are really pretty polishes even if they are sheer. :)

  6. I like heaven, but I agree with you about most of these. Also, you would never scare us with your nails. My nails are definitely not white! Lol!

  7. I like sheers for a change in scenery once in a while. I think Heaven looks fabulous on you!

  8. These are pretty but with every coming picture, I'd cringe a little more. Thanks for sharing, though, it lays to rest my lemming for Rainbow.

  9. I have wondered what GOLDEN MERINGUE looked like. Thanks the swatch. Money saved. LOL!

  10. Ugh! I'm with you. I hate sheers. I have 1 that I can use if I do some sort of French manicure, and that's all I need. I HAVE seen China Glaze rainbow used to good effect as part of a water marble. They painted the nail tie dye, and then did Rainbow and black for the water marble, and the tie dye look showed through the part with Rainbow. That being said... I really don't understand all the excitement I've been seeing over the NYC ballet collection. And the one everyone seems to be the most excited about (the sheer gray) I think looks absolutely ghastly on everyone. The glitter's alright, but they can keep the rest.

    1. I got Rainbow because I loved the bottle color, I hate how sheer it is! Thanks for sharing the tip about water marbling, I'll have try that.

  11. I agree, this polishes can be pretty only on short nails.. I don't like this yellowing effect, it looks terrible..

  12. I like them but I have to agree didnt look so good on long nails, so how about you try it over a nude color? (Something like the deborah Lippman Naked tha you swatched?) Maybe would look better.

  13. Most readers are big enough nail enthusiasts that we realize that discoloration is just a consequence of using highly pigmented polishes. Like Colette said in one of her videos, who cares if your nails are yellow, since they're always polished anyway!

    As for sheers, I don't turn to them much but I do like them once I put them on. Like the other person said, thanks so much for posting this. Even though you don't like the polishes on you, you did a great job swatching and I think we can all appreciate it, whether we want to purchase or avoid this kind of polish!

    1. Thank you so much for your words! I really don´t care about the colour of my nails since I do have them polished all the time. However showing sheers on me is painful :)
