Polish of the Week: China Glaze Frostbite

It's pouring rain and even cloudier than yesterday, so obviously, Up and Away swatches are not happening today. Boo!!! It's hard for me to get in a springtime color mood when the weather is like this, so when I did my nails last night, I reached for China Glaze Frostbite. EK and I both picked up bottles of Frostbite at Sally Beauty Supply this weekend and we're pretty much obsessed with it. I'm really not sure how we didn't have this one before. Frostbite is from the China Glaze Winter 2007 Ski collection. We think it's a total must-have for any blue polish lover!! Click on these pics to really see the shimmer.

Frostbite is a pearly finish almost neon blue. It must have some neon pigments in it, as it dries a little bit matte. No problem there though, just add a layer of Seche Vite and it becomes super shiny! The finish is great, not quite metallic, but with all the sheen of a metallic. It's also super bright and really eye-catching. I did three very thin coats, but you could easily do two.

I don't own DC's Metallic Blue, but Frostbite has this retina-searing, semi-neon brightness that I don't think Metallic Blue has based on pictures I've seen. Frostbite is just amazing!
Now that I have it, I wonder how on earth I didn't have it before! (a.k.a don't resist! just get it! LOL)
