Ebay Buy: China Glaze - Glittering Garland

Ebay can be really expensive when it comes to certain nail polish brands or shades, but in my case, it's still the best way to get China Glaze polishes for a reasonable price.

This shimmery green goodness has been on the top of my wishlist. I wanted it from the first time I saw swatches of the Let It Snow collection on Scrangie's blog. I'm still lemming two other shades from the same collection, but let's focus on this one. Hey pretty, come to momma!

I'm really happy with how this polish applies. I love the brush and formula as well. Glittering Garland is not a glitter, so it dries glossy and the surface remains smooth. Flakie shimmer FTW!

It's quite cold here in Slovenia, but I wanted to photograph GG in natural lighting. Jimi was my photo companion. She's fat. Really fat. And she likes to slap Arya. Alpha female for sure.

Glittering Garland in natural lighting. I can say it's one of the must-have shades for green lovers. Very, very pretty.

Do you like/wear this kind of greens?

  2. Waaaaw fuul je lep!! Zanima me, kako ti uspe tako lepo namazati nohte? Kako in s čim dosežeš ta popolni lok ob obnohtni kožici? :)

    1. Več let prakse in mirna roka. Kadar gre kaj narobe, mi pomaga pa čopič, namočen v odstranjevalec laka. ;)

  3. So pretty! I love Jimi too. =)

    What are the other ChG ones you want? I have one that I got in a 3 pack that I don't really care for.

  5. This is indeed gorgeous, it's been on my wishlist ever since it came out and I am eventually going to get it :)
    Could you recomend a serious Ebay seller, please?

    1. I always buy from the cheapest seller, so I can't really recommend anyone. Check their feedback and pay with PayPal. Almost nothing can go wrong that way. =)

  6. Which other two are you looking for? My Ulta may have them still (they have a few random ones left over).

  14. Great pictures. ♥ I love how this one looks! But I own Meet Me Under The Mistletoe from Orly and although they're not dupes I agreed with myself that I will be satisfied with it and not order GG (how is that for self control! ^^ ).

  15. Everytime you post a photo of your Jimi I can't help to think she's the black dupe of our Molly. She's quite fat -5kg- as well, on a permanent diet forever.
    A friend of mine had a black male cat, Phydos, that was even heavier, 11 kilos. Yes, ELEVEN. He shed some weight and was later *only* 8 kilos.

  16. O ja, fantastičen je. Mislim, da se je kar povzpel na prvo mesto med mojimi zelenkoti. Neverjetno lepa barva, pa še tele glass flekci al karkoli že so, love!

  17. GOSH! you did an absolute fabulous job on this swatch! flawless application & really did an incredible displaying the qualities of this shimmer! love it!

  18. Zanimivo, ravno včeraj sem si kupila drugi zeleni lak v svojem življenju - Catrice 600 After Eight. Vsake toliko (beri: enkrat na dve leti) me pritegnejo zeleni odtenki. Tudi tega od China Glaze bi trenutno gotovo kupila, če bi se ga dalo dobiti v običajnih drogerijah tu. Zelo lep :)

  19. Very pretty! I'm a big green lover and this is absolutely flawless :D

  20. This color popped my green cherry. I wasn't totally sold on green polish before but I had to have GG and was super lucky to get it as a Chanukah present from my swap buddy. It's beyond gorgeous and looks fabulous on you!

  21. This is a fantastic green. Love it! I haven't bought any polishes from ebay. I've only bought one thing. I bought a makeup case that was from an Estee Lauder a few years ago. I was kind of nervous about it. Maybe I'll try buying some polishes next.

  22. It's a fun green :) Jimi looks like she could endure even the winter here in Sweden with that coat of fur! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I saw it swatched somewhere and fell in love with it, too (and it won a place in my December "9 pcs" TD order)!! So far I haven't searched for CG on Ebay, but for a single bottle I think it could be a good idea. If I can found someone that ships here.
    Absolutely stunning.
    Jimi is so regal :) a real alpha cat!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ah, Jimi really looks like my Coal :D <3

  25. Thats sad that you can't get China Glaze there!! This color looks great on you! I can't pull off green, so I don't have many of them.

    Love your cat! She looks just like one of my cats.

    ReplyDelete
  26. It looks really pretty :) I haven't bought any CG polishes after the Metro collection, but there are so many I loved after that collection, and this one belongs to those :)
    This green shade looks very good on you btw!
