This ladies and gents was my VERY FIRST China Glaze I ever bought. Not this bottle but this color. Isn't it crazy that I can remember something like that but can't remember what I ate yesterday? Anyway, I loved this color. This was my first foray into my "love affair" with ChG. I remember drooling over how well this polish applied, I was super hooked after just one use. I couldn't wait to get back to Beauty Co (our local store chain that was like Sally's) and buy some more. This is one of the few bottles of nail polish that I used the whole bottle of - no joke.

This color has since been discontinued and I have only been able to find it on Ebay. I tried to order this once before only to get a note from the ebay store saying they couldn't find it. I came across it the other day and scooped this bad boy up (and a back up bottle too I might add).

I got this from a really great store that I wanted to share with you all. I was super impressed with not only the quickness in response of my order, but also in how quickly I got my order. From the day I ordered it to the time I had it in my hands was like 3 days! Both bottles came individually wrapped in bubble wrap and encased in a sturdy card board box. I got really great customer service too, which is why I wanted to share this place with you all. The store is PRETTY THINGS FOR YOU AND ME. You guys know how much I appreciate great customer service and I think I was really treated well using this store. I especially like how quickly I got my goodies too. The price wasn't too bad either. I saw that they sell lots of other discontinued and hard to find polishes also, so if you are looking for any of those you might see what they have to offer.

Anyway I always try to spread the word on great CS and wanted to give this store a little shout out!

I love that store and can only verify your great experience! I have bought so much American polishes from it, that I otherwise would not have been able to get my hands on, since I live in Sweden. I have made several purchases there, international obviously, and have been very happy every time. :)

Me too, only good things to say about PTFYAM :-) Excellent CS and fast shipping overseas.

Happy New Year for your family and the Puppies!

I had a great experience with that seller! I wrote her a note thanking her for showing the ingredients labels in her photos. I have a very bad toluene allergy, it was so helpful to be able to see if the polishes (especially older ones) contained it or not.
PS: Now that you don't allow anon comments anymore, I have to quit being lazy and log in!:)

This is really awesome!

You apply the varnish so perfectly!

I think you could really create some gorgeous designs with your skills. You should try out doing some nail art.

Check out Jacava they do some pretty neat nail art there.

here's the link(i don't know if it'll work! Just google it otherwise!):

I just bought my first ever bottles of China Glaze in December of my polish 'habit' started to pick up I heard good things. Frosty was an instant lemming when I saw it on another polish blog and it did not disappoint, but tonight I put my first CG creme color on and I am HOOKED. (Naughty and Nice, in case you are wondering) Gorgeous formula, gorgeous application, and so insanely shiny it seems redundant to put on topcoat. Sooo happy.

I think this store is going to have a run on Hot Apple! That looks gorgeous on you. I just had to check my list to see if I had this. No luck. Guess I'll be checking this stores out. Happy New Year.
