China Glaze Coconut Kiss

First off, my apologies for not getting a photo of this before, oh…. Day 4 or 5!

Coconut Kiss is from China Glaze’s 2006 Spring/Summer Fiji Fling collection and is a fantastic, vibrant purple. While listed as a shimmer, it’s *almost* a frost, as it’s really more pearly and semi-metallic than shimmery in terms of finish.  It’s rich and glowy – and wore incredibly well.  Application was 3 coats, plus the usual base (Nailtiques II) and top (Seche Vite) and, as I mentioned, these shots were at day 4 or 5. 

You can see there is no chipping whatsoever, just some tipwear – and that is not too bad, considering I had my hands in water a lot this week!  Spring cleaning, y’all!

great shot of showing the color range of this polish

I’ve heard this is close to the popular Nubar Pasadena Purple, which was really made famous because Sarah Jessica Parker wore it, and this is close enough for me!

About Satori

I like soft things. And shoes. And cultures. And nail polish - a lot. I'm an INFP/INFJ depending on the day, left-handed, can understand several conversations in a noisy restaurant from tables nearby and consistently sell myself short. I'd love to become a yoga instructor and aromatherapist. :-)
