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!

SinfulColors RADient

SinfulColors RADient The Daily Varnish 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 →

essie Virgin Snow

essie Virgin Snow The Daily Varnish 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 →

Barielle Orange Flame

Barielle Orange Flame The Daily Varnish 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 →

SinfulColors Prosecco

SinfulColors Prosecco The Daily Varnish 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 →

essie Altitude Attitude

essie Altitude Attitude winter 2015 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 →

essie Apres-Chic

essie Apres-Chic The Daily Varnish 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 →
