Polish of the Week: Oops... It's Not Green...

Soooo yesterday I promised you a green Polish of the Week. I originally had a green polish in mind, but I really haven't felt like wearing green polish all week (OMG what's wrong with me?). I think maybe because I'm trying to use some more winter-y colors before spring really hits. So the green will be Polish of the Week next week!

This week, we have a warm and cozy polish color, China Glaze Ginger. Ginger is part of the 50 Specialty Colors collection (see other 50 Specialty Colors here and here) and is a beautiful glitter polish. The base color is a coppery bronze metallic, just the color of a new penny. There are two different types of silver glitter in the polish- a whole bunch of very find silver glitter pieces and a smattering of medium-sized holo glitter pieces. With our love of glitter, Ginger is an automatic winner!

This picture is more color accurate, less red than the first picture.

Sadly, right after taking these pictures, I had one of those "oh my mani is definitely dry" moments when you find out that your mani is definitely NOT dry. But at least I took the pictures first!

Ginger is a year round color, but I am really loving it right now for that warm feeling. It's been raining here for what seems like 3 days straight, so I could use some penny-colored glitteriness in my life!!!

China Glaze Ginger and other China Glaze polishes are available online at 8ty8Beauty.

That is a neat colour. Not your typical colour.

That's exactly what I love about this color. I don't own 12 versions of it!!!
