Hey hey!!

So in my last post I told you all I purchased the entire China Glaze Bohemian Collection, and in that post I only reviewed "Rare and Radiant" because I was so excited I had to put in on immediately lol. So after a few days I took that one off and put on "Swanky Silk". I am not even joking that this is totally my favorite color so far, it is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! The duo chrome in this one is not very strong although you can see a slight color shift. I honestly don't even care because it is stunning! The color shifts from a light gold (almost 14k?) to a pretty olive-y green in some light and then a pinky rose gold color in other light. I tried my best to catch the color shift but as I do not have a quality camera it was very difficult, and I apologize for that. I apologize in advance for my ragged cuticles, I have been having a stressful week and have been biting lately :(.

ANYWAY- on to the SWATCHES!!!! yay!!!

*The finish on this one is super pretty, its more satin than shimmer and its metallic in the sun! LOVE
 Here you can kind of see the olive tone to it, the color shift is definitely more apparent in real life :(
I love how this polish is a light gold color with no yellow tones to it. Yellow doesn't flatter my skin tone at all so this one is perfect. It was pretty much impossible to capture the rose gold/pink shift I can see with my own eyes. I think its time to invest in a better camera haha. All of these pictures were with 2 coats, but it was opaque with only 1 coat :). There are no visible brush strokes which is AMAZING because there is nothing more I hate than brush lines. The only issue I had with this polish that I did not have with "Rare and Radiant" was this one chipped after 2 days, but that could be because I have had my hands in water a lot while I had this one on so we will have to see what the others in the collection are like.

Hope you enjoyed my post! I will be posting in a day or so with the next color in the line, but be on the look out for a few more posts until then :).
