CHINA GLAZE - LOVE LETTERS & MOONLIGHT

These colors were two that I picked up during my big Sally's haul. Both of these were on the regular rack, so you should be able to find these fairly easy.

Just from looking at the bottles I could tell that both of these were fairly sheer, maybe even jellies. So I knew before getting them that they weren't going to be opaque. I was really intrigued by the white one, Moonlight, and couldn't wait to try it.





LOVE LETTERS
This is three coats. I wish this were just a TAD bit more like the color in the bottle. I realize this will be used for doing french mani's so I am ok with the sheerness of it. But with just a bit more color, this would rock! I would call this a jelly. I almost painted my tips white, but decided against it so that you could really see an actual "swatch" of this color on it's own. I am still planning on doing a regular french with this soon though to show you all how this color looks for the way it was intended.






MOONLIGHT
Oh, how I love thee, let me count the ways baby! I just KNEW I was going to like this color when I saw it in Sally's, I just knew it. When I got home from that monster haul, THIS was the color I tried first. By looking at it in the bottle, I thought it looked like it could be a jelly, it kind of had that translucent thing going on. I wasn't prepared for how great it would make my nails look though! I think this color makes my nails just look so healthy and pretty! I am wearing three coats in the pictures, but this color is definitely buildable. I can't believe I have never heard anyone rave about this color before. I even went on the nail polish gallery and couldn't find a single pic of it or find anything about it on MUA either. And to top it all off, it is a JELLY!!!!!! Oh man, I'm in heaven with this one. Only one thing I would change, the name. The name of this needs to be MILK, it is a perfect name and it needs to be changed stat!
Also, this was the base coat I used for my Money in the Bank mani the other day. I did use four coats of this for that mani, so you can really see how buildable this color is.

I fell in love with Moonlight.. It is soooo pretty. I'm adding it to my must-have list because China Glaze isn't sold in my country, I'll probably order from ebay. Anyways, thanks for showing this pretty nail polish :)

Moonlight is so pretty! I think I might just have to pick it up the next time I'm in Sally's.

Thanks for posting moonlight!
Aren't sheer whites amazing! They make your nails look great, some of my faves are Orly GoGo and ChG Wht-kwik-slvr!
I will have to add moonlight to the white collection!

I'm suprised that I like Moonlight. I think it does make your nails look perfect. Love Letters is okay. Way to sheer for me. It is another polish that makes a clean looking nail. I thought it would be much darker than it is. Your nails look fabulous in Moonlight.

Pixie said...

I have Love Letters too, and it looks like utter crap on me :( BAH!

Moonlight looks so lovely and soft.

Gejba said...

I give up. I just added MOONLIGHT to my next ChG order. :)

After reading this post I also purchased these two colours. I needed a new pinkish sheer for french manicures, and I love the 'jellyness' and red/pinkness of Love Letters for this. As to the Moonlight - WOW. JUST what I've been lemming but never known what to buy. That perfect squishy creamy colour you can put on when you just want 'natural nice nails' but you don't want the hideous yellow clear things that are our own ;P PERFECT. Some days I just don't know what I'm going to wear, what colour to paint my nails... this will be ace! Thanksxx
