Hey dolls, as I make my way through my untrieds, I came across this beauty in my melmer. I bought China Glaze Skyscraper when it was first released with the fall Metro collection, but hadn’t gotten around to wearing it. Skyscraper is a dark blue base filled with silver glitter. I described it to a friend as a starry night sky in the country. The formula was fine and I applied 2 coats. The camera picked up on a little sheerness and visible nail line, but it does not look that way in real life.

Love this shade. Super fine glitters are all good in my book! I saw this abstract striping on The Nail Network a few days ago and I knew I had to try it. I received some striping tape from Lucky Lacquers in a gift exchange that was just waiting to be used. I applied the tape in a random fashion and then used 2 coats of Orly Flirty. The tape was removed while Flirty was still wet.

I love everything about this! The colors compliment each other so well. The striping tape was very easy to use and I’m excited to use it more.

Make your way over to Refined and Polished and tell KayJay what you think of  this mani and check out her others!
