Good Friday afternoon Vampies! It feels like it’s been an eternity since the sun has come out ’round these parts! I was finally able to do some swatches of the China Glaze Romantique Spring 2009 collection. Today I am bringing you the cool colors, which were my favs. Since I am blue/grey eyed and blonde haired with fair skin, cool colors always look better on me. All these went on fabulously in only two coats and extremely smooth and buttery. They are metallics and tend to streak if you go too fast or thick, so take your time when applying. Pics taken in sun with no top coat. Hope you like!


Sorry for the horrible pointer finger placement, but the other pics I took didn’t come out as nice. I think this was one of my favs in this cool collection. It’s a really nice silvered out celedon green. It reminds me of a MAC I had years ago that I got rid of for some silly reason. 


Isn’t this pretty? Reminds of a swimming pool that’s shimmery blue. Hmm don’t know what else to say, but I like! 


This was really hard to get an accurate picture of. In reality it’s a tad more lavender and less silver than this pic leads you to believe. For some reason when I think of “metallic” nails, this is the color I always think of. This one too reminds me of a MAC I had and got rid of! 


I think Awaken is my fav of this collection. It’s a really nice charcoal grey/blue metallic with lots of shimmer (as they all have).


This is one I thought I would like the best, but it’s a bit, how shall I say, Easter-eggy for me! I do like it, it’s just not instant love. It’s a nice medium lavender/purple shade with a bit of pink.


Joy is a very pretty medium pinkish/purple that’s super shimmery. I actually liked this one more than I thought I would as I am not too hip on these types of colors usually.

Let me know what you think: Love/Hate/Don’t care/It’s Friday, I’m already drinking not reading blogs…

Stay tuned for the warm collection coming soon!

Vamp it up!
