A year on Lipglossiping – Lookback (June 2009)

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 15 - 2010

June was kinda slow… 10 posts, mostly discount codes (I don’t do those anymore… I should start huting again!).  One Leila post, but I’ll spare you it and pick this one as my favourite from June 2009.

NOTD – China Glaze – Ruby Pumps – Friday, June 19th, 2009

A gorgeous, vibrant shade shot through with a sophisticated glitter.

This polish is fantastic and would easily make it into my top 10 list.

It’s a lush cherry red that I can’t stop looking at!  It goes on smoothly and evenly.  The texture feels a little gritty thanks to the glitter, but it’s nothing that a sweep of top coat wouldn’t fix.

The above image shows 1 coat(!) after 4 days of wear.  There is very minimal and even tip wear.  This is my first experience with China Glaze polishes and I’m so impressed by the formula of this one, I’m looking for more!  Anyone care to share their favourite CG polishes?

    I love that colour, I think I have a similar one by No17, not sure what its called though? And yes you should start giving us some discount codes!

    This picture goes some way to convincing me that I (uber-pale) could pull off a glittery red if it were the right one… Lovely! 🙂 x

    Yes, I have to get this at some point, what an amazing color… xxx

  4. Where do you buy China Glaze nail polishes? I tried googling but couldn’t find anywhere actually in the UK. I really shouldn’t be buying more nail polish but these are so gorgeous.

    Ruby Pumps is a classic amongst the nail bloggers. We all have it and we all love it.

    Other great China Glaze lacquers are:
    Let’s Groove (a semi-dupe for NARS Purple Rain)
    Lubu Heels (classic black with red glitter)
    Channelesque – (taupe perfection)
    C-C-C Courage and Dorothy Who (From the Wizard of Ooh Ahz Collection)
    Grape Pop (from the Up and Away Collection)

    Wow, I just realised I am WAY too much into China Glaze. I get mine from http://www.transdesign.com. Cheap, good customer service and fast.

  6. I swear one day I will actually get around to buying some ChG >_>

    Ah Ruby Pumps. This was the first China Glaze polish I bought, and I was not disappointed!

    I love days when I get to wear this and my red sequined shoes that match it!
