Quick Nail Post: China Glaze Hunger Games Riveting and Electrified Gradient

Hello my sweethearts~ I'm just going to take a quick break from some make-up homework and write up a quick nail of the week post for you guys. During my stay at Washington, I had these nails on:


The below pic is taken from my phone, so the color is a bit off. Just wanted to show you guys a fuller picture of what this mani looks like (:

It's a sweet and simple glitter gradient with two China Glaze colors I got from their Hunger Games collection last year: Riveting and Electrified. Riveting is a gorgeous deep orange filled with sparkling gold bits that shimmer like crazy! I only used one coat of Riveting because it's such an opaque polish already! As you can probably tell from the below pics:

1 coat, I swear! Look at the gorgeous shimmer :D
 And here is a blurry pic with flash to show you how much shimmer is in here! You can also tell from the bottle that this polish sparkles like CRAZY under direct light! So gorgeous :3


I've gotten so many compliments on my nails already, but honestly it's the polish. Glittery and gorgeous, not to mention very smooth and easy to apply AND LASTS SUPER LONG! I'll definitely be doing more glitter gradients because they're so simple but eye-catching! And it makes people think I spent lots of time on my nails xD

Okay, that's it for the quick post~ I'm about to continue doing my homework now! Hump day tomorrow, hang in there, sweethearts :P
Love,
Christine
