China Glaze: Wizard Of Ooh Ahz Returns

Here are the swatches of China Glaze Wizard of Ooh Ahz Returns collection. As you know, it consists of 6 glittery shades that are great for the coming holidays. =)

I used Miss Sporty Nail Expert for glossy nails as a base coat and NO top coat. Pictures aren't as good as I would've want them to be, but there was no sun and the weather is getting even worse. These will have to do. Keep in mind they all look A LOT bling-ier in real life. =)

RUBY PUMPS - red jelly base with tons of red glitter. It looks gorgeous and it's one of those shades that looks as good on the warm toned as on the cool toned. It's certainly a must have shade. =) Ruby Pumps is the one that allows you to wear only 2 coats. Others are mostly 3 coaters (at least for me). This one is my personal favourite.

COWARDLY LYIN' - gold frosty base with gold glitter. I used 3 coats.

THE TEN MAN - silver frosty base with silver glitter. This one is also a 3 coater.

DOROTHY WHO? - blue jelly base with tons of silver and blue glitter. 3 coats. Must-have for all blue nail polish lovers. =)

C-C-COURAGE - purple frosty base with purple glitter. This one is more opaque than others, but I added 3rd coat because the brush strokes were showing. My bad. =) This one is also a must-have and it's my 2nd favourite.

GOOD WITCH? - pink frosty base with pink glitter. This one is so nice and delicate but there's a twist to it. Glitter is giving it a bit of edge and making it special. This one is the prettiest ... for all you girly polished ladies. ;)

All in all, I think it's a great collection, no wonder all the girls wanted it to come back. And I don't even like glitter polish that much! I think that a green and/or orange would look good in the collection too, but what do I know. =)

All polishes have thin and quite runny formula, but in a good way. I love ChG brushes and application was easy peasy. =) Applying 3 coats isn't PITA 'because it dries quite fast - even without top coat. You only have to be careful when applying those shades with frosty base (I think you know what I'm talking about - brush strokes). =)

I thought that removing would be horrible. Especially 'cause I swatched them all one after another. Well, I was surprised. It wasn't bad at all. I just soaked the cotton pad in remover, pressed the pad against the nail and hold it tight for a couple of seconds. It was all gone in one motion.

If you like the colors, I'd definitely recommend it to you. But you have to know, I'm a China Glaze lover. They almost can't do wrong.

Which are your favourite? Are you getting some of this bling-bling?

Thanks for looking!

    They all look great but I'm skipping this one as I have the origional Cccourage and ruby pumps and I'm just not overly interested in any of the others. But if you are a glitter fanatic this is the perfect set!

  2. Original ones, ha? Well you're one lucky girl. =)

  3. No wonder Ruby Pumps made it in ChG's permanent line, it really is the prettiest of them all in my opinion. They're all nice in their own ways but I'll pass for once (doesn't happen very often, hubby will be happy!)

  5. =) Are you waiting for the creme ones? Well, now that I've had C-C-Courage on my nails for a while, I'm beggining to like it even more. Beware Ruby Pumps, you're getting competition!

  9. Ruby pumps rules:)

    I also love Doroty Who?. Nihrida, is this the blue version of Ruby pumps in a good way or not?

    Loving the c-c-courage tambien ;)

  10. I remember all the sighs because of Dorothy Who when girls posted pics on MUA. Now we can all have it! =)

  11. Thank you! =) I was afraid the photos wouldn't turn out good...still they make no justice to these polishes.

  12. Well, Dorothy Who? isn't exactly blue version of RP. It ''shouldn't'' have silver glitter in it... ;) It's not as awesome as Ruby Pumps. RP is opaque with 2 coats, DW needs 3 coats and you can still see my smile line. Other than that it's a great color. Hope this helps.

  13. C-C-COURAGE is the one I like best, dorothy is a bit too bright for me, I can't lay my hands on starry night or twinkle twinkle but at least I'm waiting for naturistics crystal blue which I managed to get on ebay :D

  14. although, I am not some ChG fan, my experience with glitters and polishes overall isn't the greatest but anyway, most people do not agree with me =)
