Like a bull in a China shop!!!

No clue about the post title lol. I was thinking China Glaze and that's what popped in my head so I had to use it...otherwise my head might explode... that happens to me sometimes :) lol
ANYWAYS...........

I was at Ulta the other day and saw a China Glaze polish that I've seen before and liked and I finally decided to get it. "Custom Kicks' is a light blue-tealish color I guess... I am horrible with descriptions lol.... and it had a light golden shimmer to it. I loved it once I really looked at it and saw that shimmer *swoon* I finally put it on my nails last night....

Ok I love the color, but I was really disappointed that the shimmer really didn't show. I looked in different lighting and could barely see it, and I really had to look for it....

 You can actually see it in the pictures better then you can IRL sadly :(
So I spent the day at work looking at my nails every so often and would become disappointed all over again.... I started to think about what I could do to try and make these nail more appealing to me... I decided to do black tips to give it a good contrast. As I was thinking of that I remembered a CG polish that I had bought on ebay awhile ago and had never used. It's called "Crystal Chandelier"!!!

It's an older polish and I really had no clue how it would look over "Custom Kicks" but decided to slap it on after I did the black tips...




 I love the effect it had and I think it really makes it look like it does in the bottle if not better. I also liked how it looked on the black. Right now as I type this I am wearing this polish. I was going to show something different but I wanted to share this while I was wearing it.

I hope you like how it turned out, I know I do!!!

Have you ever seen "Crystal Chandelier" before? Do you own it?

As always thank you so much for reading. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below.

Before I go I just wanted to let you know that I have decided to have my very first giveaway once I hit 100 followers. I like nice round even numbers and I think 100 is a good number. I have a couple polishes set aside already and until I hit my goal I will keep adding as I find things :) Keep an eye out!!!
