NOTD: China Glaze – Mahoganie

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 29 - 2011

You can’t polish a turd but you can roll it in glitter…

Ta-da!!

Well, it’s not exactly subtle is it?  A warm brown base colour with a whole heap of chunky holo glitter embedded like sparkly shrapnel.  It needs a top coat to get rid of the grittiness and three overall coats to achieve full opacity.

I like it, but not as much as I thought I was going to.  Apologies for the no natural daylight photo – colour is accurate but the holo is obviously looking a little underwhelming.  You need proper sun for that kind of bling and we’re just not getting any at the moment.

What do you think?

China Glaze Mahoganie is priced at £7.99 and available online from RadiantBabe-Beauty.

    Best opening line of a blog post ever! Really made me chuckle. I like the colour, but can’t deal with the gritty feeling – even after top coat. Probably won’t pick this one up. x

    Of course I just read “Ta dah” as the opening line and thought “*sniff* , well yes I know she’s won the Johnson’s of Johnson’s award for the bestest and all that but Ta dah ain’t all that special”…..perhaps I need to go to Specsavers. I think I am with Leanne. xx

    mmm – Love the glittery but not sure on the colour – The whole effect looks a bit like crushed Smarties, but your opening line is indelibly stamped on my mind now haha

    I kinda like it, so unusual! I have to agree with one of the posters above me, it really does look like sparkly crushed smarties. =)

    Layer it over red! That’s how I wear Mahoganie most of the time, it looks less brown but still glittery.
