China Glaze - Weekend Warrior + Awesome Blogs

Posted by Erin on 10/20/11. Filed under: , , ,

I'm wearing another great shade from China Glaze's Metro collection today. This time I'm wearing Weekend Warrior. I can't get enough of these rich greens this fall. And at this point I probably have more greens in my collection than any other color, which is weird since I'm not a super fan of the color green in general. I just enjoy it on my nails for some reason. Oh well. Onto the review and swatches!

Color:
Very rich dark olive green creme. This is the perfect shade for your Army camo nail art.

Application:
Again, China Glaze has a superior formula and Weekend Warrior reflects that. It's smooth, non-streaky and opaque in 2 coats. Many colors that are this dark and pigmented are tough to control and can bleed around the cuticle, but there are none of those kinds of issues here. Excellent.

Downside:
Absolutely none.

Bottom Line:
Westside Warrior is a perfect fall shade and a great addition to any polishaholics collection. I may have to learn how to do a camo design just so I can utilize this to it's full potential. I also think it'd look nice in a french mani. Add those to my list of future nail art designs.

I wanted to share some links with you guys, because although I subscribe to quite a few blogs, the truth is that I normally only have time to visit a handful of them on a regular basis. That said, I do make it a point to check out all of my commenters blogs.  In fact, A few of my regular commenters have some really cool manis going on at present and if you're looking for Halloween inspiration, look no further. 

- Midnight Manicures has great nail art on her blog. I especially love the blood spattered skull design.

- Fellow Bostonian, Alexisaurus, has the coolest zombie nail art up right now. Can we get a tutorial, Alexisaurus?  :)

- Fingers did an intricate spider web design that makes me a little jealous.

- Rin doesn't seem to have done any Halloween designs just yet, but she's super nice and has great swatches.

    Man, I am so jealous of how well you can apply all your polishes! It looks more like an art picture than a manicure!
