NOTD: China Glaze Grape Pop

Set up by Manateemama swatch, last Sunday I tried on my second Up&Away: Grape Pop. I was quite sure I'd love it: I am a purple/violet/whaterver similar addicted. But now I can say I adore it! First layer was extremely stripey and uneven, but with second one everything went perfect and the result was amazing: a deep purple, intense and super shiny (I told you I adore it ;-)). I couldn't stop staring at my nails!

Unfortunately, as all purples, it is very difficult to picture it, it always comes out too blue...Second picture (the out of focus one) is quite representative of real color. BTW I have to apologize per my mani pics, the weird "uneven" surface effect is due to my Seche Vite that is becoming too thick and was applied quite poorly. Grape Pop alone was perfect!

Istigata dallo swatch di Manateemama domenica ho provato il secondo Up&Away: Grape Pop. Che l'avrei amato non c'erano quasi dubbi: sono una fanatica del viola in tutte le sue varianti e sfumature. Bene ora posso dire che lo adoro! A parte la prima mano, venuta disomogenea e strisciatissima, con la seconda si è sistemato tutto ed il risultato è stupendo: un viola scuro ma non troppo, intenso ed extralucido! Non facevo altro che guardarmi le mani!!!
Putroppo fotografarlo è un'impresa, anche modificando il bilanciamento del bianco viene sempre troppo blu! La seconda foto (quella sfocata) rende abbastanza il colore reale. Mi scuso per la finitura strana nella prima foto: il top coat mi si sta addensando (ce l'ho da un mese solo, dall'odore che ha è chimica pura e funziona alla grande, però probabilmente non è un caso che vendano il thinner apposito) e l'ho steso da cani!

  2. Very pretty! I love these kinds of purples. This one looks similar to Orly's Grape Crush, but the Grape Pop looks a bit more red tones/warm.

    Ugh, tell me about thickening top coats! I did my nails a couple of days ago and realized my top coat had gone the consistency of pudding (again), and had a not so great effect on my mani!

  3. Er, I meant Orly's Charged up, not Grape Crush. :)

  4. Thank you Gildeangel, I love it!
    Origami I was quite surprised to find it already so thick it's almost new but probably it is so effective that it dries itself too (I must buy thinner very soon).
    I checked Orly's Charged up, you're right, Grape Pop is a little bit warmer!

  5. Aww... you make me want this one! I've ordered it 2 weeks ago and it hasn't arrived yet. It's gorgeous on you. I was afraid it was too blue but visibly, I'm not going to be disappointed!
