China Glaze - Your Touch
Happy Hump day Everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start. As of Monday I am down to just 1 full time job instead of 2 part time ones and hopefully that will free up some time for my blogging. I've missed posting on a consistent basis and hearing your thoughts.
Speaking of thoughts, Id love to hear yours on today's polish. Originally released as part of the Holiday Fine Wine and Chocolate collection (2007) and is now part of the core line, I think China Glaze Your Touch is a great color for fall. A dusty rose brown with golden shimmer. I don't know about you but I tend to go in spurts with my color choices. I go through phases where I'm drawn to pinks or coppers or reds. It doesn't always follow the seasons but right now it seems to. I've been drawn to the deep rich colors I see in the leaves around me.
Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat in natural light. Application is smooth and even with a few pesky brush strokes here and there. But they are not as visible as my camera wants to make them out to be. And for a shimmer it's pretty opaque. I'm very tempted to stamp with it. I didn't do that this time but I do have a little nail art to share at the end of my post.
If you're in the market for a great earthy tone that isn't a neutral Id say Your Touch is a great polish to pick up. In certain lighting you get this really cool coppery effect that is just stunning.
Now about that nail art I mentioned earlier... the original idea came from a video I saw online by @nailyourideas but mine didn't turn out quite the same. I still love the look but need to apologize for the sub-par cell phone shot.
I used Essie Good as Gold to create my accent nail and play up the golden shimmer in Your Touch. This was a very easy look to create but I need to "swoosh" the polish around a bit more next time to really nail it. That's all I've got for you today, be sure to check back Friday where I'll have another look for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas Challenge. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
