notd: china glaze street chic

I've been really loving autumnal shades again recently, which is probably lucky due to the great british weather at the moment!
this is Street Chic, part of the China Glaze Metro collection released last fall, and it's a taupey brown with a very slight purple undertone, I like that it's not too warm but not so cool it makes my skin look funny.
I couldn't for the life of me get a good picture of the colour (desperately need an actual camera), so the first picture I changed the colouring of slightly and it's now pretty damn close.
The colour looks a lot like cadbury chocolate; a kind of muted chocolately brown.
This polish, like 99% of the China Glaze colours I own, goes on like a dream. This was two coats, and applying it actually feels like applying a smooth chocolate sauce to my nails! It's naturally really shiny on its own but I've added one coat of Seche Vite as always to enhance this shine.
I don't actually like chocolate, but I shall be getting my chocolate fix from this at work tomorrow!

You may have noticed how long my nails are getting, I'm absolutely chuffed, although I keep breaking my right index finger so I then have to file the rest down, which is annoying. I talked about my experience with Nail Envy when I first started this blog, but I've continued using it and it actually seems to be working rather well. I just apply one coat before my base coat (china glaze strong adhesion), and it doesn't seem to be affecting the wear a at all. I might do an updated review of it shortly...



  1. The colour is so nice! Jealous of how long your nails are too xo

    1. Thanks love! They would be a lot longer if I didn't have to keep evening them up! xx

  2. Such a beautiful shade! I'm super envious of your nails, I think I'm going to have to invest in nail envy! xo

    1. Haha thanks!
      Yeah I would recommend it, but you need to really persevere with it to get results. I never did the recommended applying every other day for a week thing though, as I said I just use it under my base coat xx

  3. I love that shade, perfect for a/w xxx
