Last 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!

This is a polish that just got lost in the shuffle. Which is too bad because I could see myself wearing this polish quite a bit in the warmer weather. RADient was released as part of the SinfulColors Back to School Chalk Board Diaries collection. The collection featured a demi-matte finish that I, admittedly, have […] Continue reading →
This is the namesake polish for essie’s winter 2015 collection. And, to be honest, I wasn’t overly excited about Virgin Snow at first. It doesn’t really stand out among the other polishes in the collection. But, I must admit, I’ve been won over by Virgin Snow’s subtle beauty. Virgin Snow is a very light periwinkle […] Continue reading →
Y’all. I don’t even remember the last time I saw blue sky. It has been horribly gloomy in Charlotte this past week and while we have gotten some much needed rain I am over the overcast with a side of mist weather forecast. To cheer myself up I decided to give Funky Fingers Scattered Sea […] Continue reading →
Oh hey, glitter. Long time, no see! I’ve been definitively in a creme finish polish mood as of late. But, lets be honest, that gets a bit boring after awhile. Orange Flame has been in my stash for quite awhile. It’s from Barielle’s Spring 2015 Glitter Mania collection and for one reason or another just never made […] Continue reading →
This polish has been a long time lemming and finally I have it thanks to Katie. She sent it to me (with a bunch of other stuff) for our friendaversary. Prosecco isn’t a polish I would normally go for but with the name (I am a presecco addict…I’ll admit it) and how gorgeous the shimmer […] Continue reading →
I go through nail polish phases and lately I’ve been all about red nails (as if that wasn’t obvious from TDV Instagram feed!). There’s something so easy and chic about red nails. I guess that’s why red polish is a classic! Altitude Attitude is from essie’s winter 2015/2016 Virgin Snow collection and is described as a […] Continue reading →
Bronze is a big trend in nails this fall and while not my first choice when it comes to metallic polish (#TeamSilver) I’m trying to embrace the trend. When it comes to bronze polishes Barielle Autumn in Seoul is one of the better options for my particular skintone. It’s a beautiful polish and absolutely perfect […] Continue reading →
Fall is officially here but I’m about to share a polish with you that’s supposed to look like sand. I know, doesn’t make sense. But the boy and I are vacationing in Myrtle Beach next month and I’m already dreaming of fall weather with a side of sand and ocean air. Ah. Anyhow. This is […] Continue reading →
Yep. This is happening. I’m about to talk about a polish from a winter collection when the first day of fall was yesterday. But…all that aside. I’ve been excited about this collection ever since I saw an ad for it in Nailed It! magazine. Apres-Chic is a super shimmery opaque silver chrome. I love this […] Continue reading →
