Rainbow Favorites Day Five: China Glaze Frostbite + WetnWild Stars & Stripes

Good morning!!  Before this challenge started, I planned ahead and made a list of the colors I'd use, and I totally had not settled on a blue until sometime yesterday afternoon.  I almost did wear my favorite again, which is Rescue Beauty Lounge Cuprum, but in the end I decided to do a test run of my Independence Day mani.  Christina at Amoki's Corner used China Glaze Frostbite in her Memorial weekend pedi, and I thought it looked absolutely perfect with her handpainted stars and decided that's what I'd use for my nails come the 4th. 



Frostbite is a gorgeous, chilly cerulean blue frost that's actually waaaaay darker than it appears (is it my camera, or is it me? Hmmm....)  I haven't used a China Glaze polish in years, and I didn't remember what to expect; the formula here was a little thin, and the brush a little small for my liking, but it covered perfectly in two coats and did I mention the color is gorgeous?

  
Also, I love stars.  My bedroom ceiling at my parents' house is covered in those tiny glow-in-the-dark sticky ones.  When I saw WetnWild Stars & Stripes at the grocery store one evening, of course I had to pick it up.  They're tricky, and need to be fished out, but they're so cute!  And they're holographic!  I can't wait to add a shimmery red to the mix in another week. 

So, what lovely blues are my fellow participants sporting?


Tomorrow is purple day, and I seriously CAN'T WAIT!! :)  I'll be wearing what might be my Holy Grail.
Thank you for reading, and have an awesome day. :)

  3. Thanks for the shout out, Liesl! This is also one of my husband's favorite blues that I wear. Out of curiosity, does your Frostbite have a super strong odor? Mine SMELLS!

    1. I totally just opened my bottle and took a whiff. Um, not too bad! But I've been smelling my big 3 Prisms lately, so maybe next to those Frostbite isn't terrible.
