Another collection worth loving: China Glaze Retro Diva

I so much love showing you these older China Glaze polishes. I already posted about the Rodeo Diva Collection which is for me one of the best collections ever made. A year later, in 2009, the fall collection was also very very pretty. So today I bring you swatches of Retro Diva. I again don´t have all 12 of the polishes, just the ones that became permanent. All of these are two coats (guess Stroll would be better with three), perfect and flawless application. I think my favourite is Let´s Groove. What about you? Do you remember this collection and what polishes do you have?

CORDS

LET´S GROOVE

SHORT & SASSY

SKATE NIGHT

STELLA

STROLL

THUNDERBIRD

  2. I don't own any of them, sadly my obsession with polish is not old enough! But I've spotted Short & Sassy in a few blogs now, and it's closer and closer to my stash...

  3. All of them are amazing but I love and can't be without Stella which I finally got (or I hope so - it's on its way to me) and it's the one of my heart :-) Thanks for the pictures of them all... I guess I'll discover some more must-haves :)

  5. Beautiful swatches! I love this collection and have Thunderbird and Short & Sassy. Just wondering if you would mind making a post on how your photograph your nails - your watches always look incredible!

  8. Normally I'm not a fan of long nails but yours are spectacular.
    Anyways, I don't have any polish from this collection - I don't like red polish.
    Btw, is Let's Groove OPI Ink's dupe?

  10. Thanks for posting part of this great fall collection from 2009. It had some real classics in it. The one that caused a lot of love and stir - "cords" still surprises me. I bought it and like your photos show, it was very prone to brush marks. But it was quite sought after on release and really talked up. Maybe because it was in the height of the taupe/grays being really big.

  11. Oh they all look gorgeous on you! I have LG and S&S but after seeing your pics I think I 'need' Stella. Stroll looks very similar to Orly Glam or is it CG's Ruby Red Pumps?

  12. Ahhh my favourite! I have 6 of these that came together in a pack: Cords, Far Out, Let's Groove, Short & Sassy, Skate Night and Stella!

  18. Wow, Short & Sassy just leaped to the top of my wish list--what a rich, gorgeous shade! Let's Groove is really gorgeous too. I hardly ever wear purple, but LG is just so lush.
