Nail of the Day: Up and Away Purples

I have a few posts this week where I take the China Glaze Up and Away polishes and make them more exciting (LOL)!!

Before I get into today's NOTD, I have a quick announcement. I am going to Ireland this week for a big dance competition called the All-Ireland Championships. So, any posts this week are scheduled posts. EK will be answering comments whenever she can, but if it seems a little slow around here, that's why. The blog will return to normal when I come home Sunday night. Next week, I'll have a few new things to show you! Now, back to our regularly scheduled program.

Today's NOTD features the two purple polishes from China Glaze Up and Away, Grape Pop and Light as Air.

Three coats Light as Air, Tip with Grape Pop, with flash

I did three coats of Light as Air, followed by my favorite tip look, the inverted V. This tip look works out best when you wipe off the flat wide part of the polish brush on both sides. Do not wipe off the sides of the brush. Then, use the side of the brush to make one stroke of polish from the side of your nail to the middle at the top. Do the same on the other side. Voila! Easy, cool-looking V-shaped tip!

The China Glaze Up and Away collection is available online at 8ty8Beauty or in an Ulta store near you.

Thanks ladies!! I was pretty fond of this combination myself. I think I'll be wearing it a bunch this spring. The tips are very easy to do also!

Thanks, Teresa!! I think good luck is the best thing to say to a dancer, or kick butt lol! Ooooh! We'll have to check out that Zoya sale! We ALWAYS need new polish, especially if they're free!!
