China Glaze Skyscraper

China Glaze Skyscraper The Daily VarnishLast weekend I went to a Sam Hunt concert. Y’all. It was amazing. He was amazing! Plus, it gave me the perfect excuse to get out my favorite glitter polish; China Glaze Skyscraper.

Skyscraper is from the fall 2011 Metro collection and is absolutely amazing. I did a full post on this polish awhile ago that you can check out here.

It’s been years since I’ve posted this polish and since it’s Thursday I figured it was a good time for a throwback.

Worth noting I did use the NYC Strip Me Off Base Coat since this was a one night mani; it worked wonderfully!

I don’t think China Glaze added this to their permanent line but Skyscraper is still available on Amazon.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump!

  1. your photos are beautiful!! CG makes the most amazing micro-glitter polishes!! but a lot of the older ones chip or flake right off my nails within a day’s time… a couple years ago i almost quit buying the brand bc of this issue, but all their recently made polishes have not had that problem… for me, anyway. i still shy away from older CG colors bc i’m afraid i’m gonna get the 8 hr manicure. i discarded my bottle of Ruby Pumps for that reason. hated to do it, it’s a lovely color.. but it just peeled right off my nails almost as soon as it was dry!

What do you think?
