NOTD: China Glaze Groovy Green & Latest Haul

Ahhhh Spring is on the way, tomorrow is my birthday and it amazed me how another year seems to pass by very quick.

To celebrate the spring season full of beautiful colors, I picked out some of China Glaze creme nail polish, as this is my 1st time ordering nail polish online, I didn't haul too big..only enough to see if it's reliable.

The site where I ordered is Head2Toe Beauty (H2T). Their service is truly amazing, the order processing takes less than 1 day (I ordered Tuesday midnight and on Wednesday morning they're already shipped, that's super duper fast!!!!!!
Makes me wonder who works behind those orders...............ELVES? lol Hi5 Emoticon

It's a fairly small haul and I ordered all 3 creme colors from China Glaze ($2.99 each), shipping cost me around 6 dollar because they use Priority Mail, and it only took 3 days to get here, well worth it. I am very confident to say that H2T is a superb seller!

What I got:

  • ChG Agent Lavender (from Operation Colour Collection)
  • ChG Groovy Green (from Patent Leather II collection)
  • ChG Spontaneous (from Flirt Two-2-Tango collection)

I decided to use Groovy Green and I am at awe for the creaminess of this pale green color, it screams pretty. I am always a fan of cream finish more than anything (shimmer/glitter/sheer) and this formula really surprises me, in various reasons.

First layer I applied, I wasn't loving it. It went very sheer and the opacity was very disappointing, but having to deal with enough different kinds of polishes I knew I should not speak too soon. And they proved me right, the second layer I put on succeed my expectation to this baby, the color becomes more opaque and almost 'jelly' like, which I adore.

Hahaha pardon me for the picture spam, I am really loving this color, I know it's not everyone's cup of this could look................tooth paste-y?

But I adore it, it's subtle, soft but very unique. I'm wearing this for my birthday!!!
Before I finish this post, let me show you another teensy haul I received from a dear MUA-er who swapped with me, she sent me these gorgeous OPI polishes in Eiffel for This Color (very vampy!) and My Daddy's The King! (creme pale baby pink).

Thanks for reading & for your lovely early wishes!!!
