I recently purchased my first China Glaze polish. I usually don't spend more than $5 on polish but I really wanted a bright orange and it was the only one I loved.
On top of my base coat I applied 2 coats of Sinful Colors Slate, a cream gray with a subtle shimmer.
I applied a coat of SV.
Then I taped off small sections to create my color blocking
I used China Glaze Japanese Koi (It didn't photograph as well as I wanted. It is MUCH brighter in person.) Sally Hansen Blue Me Away &Vibrant Violet.
Topping it all off with Sally Hanson Mega Shine.
