China Glaze Strawberry Fields

This evening (this yucky, rainy evening) we have a very China Glazesque CG polish. By China Glazesque, I mean that it is absolutely loaded with tiny glitter. Only China Glaze can pull off putting this much glitter into polish and have it still apply perfectly smooth and cover evenly. Think Ruby Slippers (currently lusting after) or the entire OMG! collection.

China Glaze Strawberry Fields

Strawberry Fields is from China Glaze's Summer Days collection. I purchased it because 1) I heart the Beatles, 2) It was featured in a Lucky spread this summer, and 3) I simply cannot resist pink polish. Unlike Senorita Rosalita, Strawberry Fields is a redish pink - not a pinkish red. Like I said, it has loads of tiny flecks of gold glitter in it, giving my nails a fabulous gold shimmer whenever the light hits them. The camera just doesn't do this color justice at all. None of the shimmer and gold that you'd see in real life is captured.

I love this color -- it's fun and it is really versatile. That said, I wouldn't wear it on most job interviews, but it's a great year-round shade. It covered well with two coats (seen here) and dried fairly fast (not as fast as OPI, about the speed of Zoya). No top coat yet (planning on Konading them tonight!).

I'm a huge Beatles fan also. So this polish is even more special to me. It's a gorgeous shade of pink. Loaded with shimmery goodness.

Glad you like it!! I love when polishes have names with more significant meaning :)
