The first official Swatch Sunday post of 2019! It’s just like old times! & naturally I had to go with someone super bright & neon because I wanted to start things off with a bang! 💥
Today’s Swatch selection is China Glaze Thistle Do Nicely which was originally released as part of the City Flourish collection circa Spring 2014. I didn’t get this collection when it was originally released (or since… haha) but it was gifted to me from @helloluli_ back at the end of Summer. & I feel so lucky to have it as part of my collection, because it’s such a pretty polish!
What you’re looking at it two coats, plus top coat. On its own, the polish dries to a matte finish, but I was feeling shiny so I added a coat of Essie Speed Setter. Usually, when I wear matte polish I tend to add a coat of glossy top coat & finish off with a matte top coat… counter productive, maybe? But seems to make it so the polish will last longer on me.
This is such a crazy colour… it just made my camera go crazy. The neon is intense & sometimes it looks pink & sometimes it looks coral. But it’s definitely the perfect polish for anyone craving Summer shades already (& when it’s -11 outside, I need something Summery to dream about because I don’t like cold.) Not to mention, it makes me look super tanned, even when the truth is I haven’t been outside in the Sun in about a year haha. I can’t wait to make this a frequently worn pedicure colour come this Summer.
