China Glaze ~ Love Marilyn

China Glaze ~ Love Marilyn
A Christmassy Red glitter with different sizes of shimmering silver glitters

“Love Marilyn” is from the Eye Candy 3-D Glitters Collection from winter 2011, and I knew I had to have it from the moment I laid eyes on it.

China Glaze themselves call it a 3D glitter. I am not sure quite what they mean by 3D, but the fact is that it’s absolutely gorgeous.

Here it is:

I used three coats to reach full opacity, and it dried very quickly between each coat. It was very lumpy though, but perhaps that’s what the 3D fuss is all about! :D The picture shows three coats and two coats of China Glaze’s Fast Forward top coat.

There are two cons:
1) - It chips pretty quickly. This mani only lasted for a day and a half before it had its first big chip.
2) - The removal. It’s a *real* pain, even when using the foil method!

It’s still totally worth it though. I wore it for a Christmas party at work, and it was perfect for that occasion. Red and silver and glitter, glitter, glitter!

  1. I don't understand what 3D glitter is either but I like the look if this! Shame it was such a nightmare to remove

  2. It's weird with the removal. Perhaps I should have waited for some more of it to chip off by itself! :D

  3. I love this, your nails are too cute <3
