So, what's on the agenda for today, you ask?
Here's China Glaze Bogie, the first polish I'm showing you from the Vintage Vixen collection. I don't have many polishes from Vintage Vix, actually; I'm kicking myself for not just buying the entire boxed set(s). Anyway, Bogie is a deep, dark metallic plum. Its base is super grayed out, giving it an almost antique-y feel; the multicolored microshimmer keeps this polish from falling flat. I really like it, actually. It's not your average purple polish; it looks a little murky and vampy. I actually ran out and bought Bogie after I saw ALU compare it with Rescue Beauty Lounge Catherine. I know that they're not too too similar, but after seeing the comparison I thought I could probably happy with spending $5 on Bogie rather than $18 on Catherine (although that did not stop me from spending more money on Rescue Beauty Lounge Anne and Catherine H).
Bogie really comes to life in the sun. I did my nails at nighttime, like I always do, and it was a pleasant surprise this morning when I stuck my hand into a patch of sunlight and my nails glistened like little gems. The application on Bogie was just what I'd expect from China Glaze: two easy coats to opaque. The formula was excellent. I really don't have any complaints.
That's all for today! I'll announce the winner of my giveaway tomorrow along with the polishes she chose. I hope everyone's weeks get off to fantastic starts, and I'll talk to you soon!
Play it again, Sam.
