China Glaze - Escaping Reality

So first off....this color REFUSED to photograph color accurate.  If you own this polish, you know how different it is than these pics.  This color is much more saturated and juicy looking than these pics portray.  If you own this polish you know what I mean.  What I would suggest is going out and BUYING this polish, so you know what I mean! : )

Me actually posting this has been a long time coming.  Have you ever worn a polish that just wasn't meant to be?  I've applied this polish THREE SEPARATE TIMES now, without actually wearing it.  The first two times something happened in the drying process and I got smudges or dents, so I took it off, just to put on another color.  Anyone else do that?  Or is that just me?

This is China Glaze Escaping Reality.  I really didn't want much from the ChG Cirque du Soleil collection, but I think Sally's was having a sale on these colors at one point, maybe it was BOGO or something, and I really only wanted It's A Trap-eze! and none of the other colors interested me, so I picked this one up.

I do actually REALLY like it.  It's what would be considered a "crelly" (oh mighty God how I hate that word!), and it actually applied really well despite my totally wonky brush.

When I applied, top coat, I applied those cute little triangle studs.  I have been lemming studs hardcore, so when I saw a little wheel of rhinestones and studs at Icing, I picked them up.

I really don't want to call this a neon, but I think it might be.  It's right on that verge.  

Like I REALLY need to add another ChG neon pink to my collection.....I now have this one, Flirty Tankini (is that a pink?  It's kinda hard to tell, it's maybe a neon coral?  Whateve, it makes the list for me), Love's a Beach, Hang-Ten Toes and Purple Panic (which we all know is a neon pink!)....I don't even own the popular Pool Party!  I kinda feel like I need it now....

These are the cute studs, etc. I got from Icing.  BTW, I really wish I had put just one stud on my thumbs.  Ah well!

I hope you all have a wonderful night, tomorrow is TGIF!  Yay!  I have some hard work days ahead of me the next couple of weeks, so it's the little things like Friday that make me happy!! (Even though I work on Sat) :p


  1. Love the color, gorgeous mani x

  2. The color on its own is already super pretty, and the little stud really perfects it :-)

  3. Your thumb hand fangs! Just kidding :)
    I'm a little shocked that Icing has studs?!? Ok, I haven't been there in years, but still. Looks almost identical to the one they have at bornprettystore :)

  4. I think the studs work really well, thanks for the comment!

  5. I know! My thumb totally looks like it had fangs, that's exactly what I said!

    I was surprised Icing had these cute little studs too!
