China Glaze - Givers Theme

     Earlier this summer I was given the opportunity to share the press release for The Giver Collection by China Glaze with all of you. Of course after that I stalked my Sally's until they got it in stock and purchased the entire collection. And its sat here on my desk waiting to be used ever since. Instead of showing you the entire collection in one post I decided to break it up and share a few here and there. First up is Givers Theme.
     Givers Theme is a highly pigmented red toned purple polish that dries to a glossy crème finish. Like most purples this one was hard to photograph accurately. My pinky nail comes the closest to true color. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat.

     Application was smooth and easy with even coverage on both coats. No streaking or splotching with this one. Which is pretty much what I've come to expect from China Glaze.

     I really kind of like the red undertone that Givers Theme has. It's not your typical purple polish color.  And these days with the amount of polish I have it's getting harder and harder to find something unique.    

     I haven't come across this collection is stores anymore but it is still available from Sally's online if you want to pick one up.  There are a few others in this collection that I cant wait to try, but Givers Theme is up there at the top right now as one of my favorites. Did you pick up any from this collection?  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

  1. I'm generally not a fan of the more eed-leaning purples because they look funky on my skin, but this is a really pretty shade.

  2. This is the first red tones purple polish that I've worn. I think the fact that it's a lighter shade helps it look better with my skin tone.

  3. Red toned purples usually don't play well with me, but luckily your skintone doesn't give you that trouble!

  4. At least this one didn't. I haven't used any other ones so far. I'm not sure a darker one would look as nice, but I guess I'll find that out if I use one. =)
