China Glaze Spring 2013 Collection - Avant Garden

*polishes in this post were won in a give-away*

Good afternoon, darling readers.  I hope you each had a wonderful week-end!  I'm a little later getting this post up than I had planned to be.  I'll be back on track tomorrow.  This week I'll be covering six of the China Glaze's Spring 2013 collection.  It is called Avant Garden.  I won these from Of Life and Lacquer back in March, when she had a give-away for them.  The six I have are called:  :Sunday Funday", "Mimosa's Before Mani's", "Tart-y For The Party", "Keep Calm, Paint On", "Fade Into Hue", and "Fancy Pants".

We're going to start this week off with "Keep Calm, Paint On".  It's a very pale minty/sea foam green color with a slight shimmer.  I wore this with a coat of China Glaze Strong Adhesion base coat, two coats of nail color, and a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward as my top coat.  The first coat of polish went on just a bit splotchy, but it evened up nicely on the second one.  I'm not really sure that I like this color on me, I thought it made my already pale hands look even paler.  This one may be  going into my blog sale box.

Sorry about the clean-up not being so good.  I thought I had it all done, then that mess showed up when I took the photo's.  Clean-up is still something I'm working on though, so please bear with me.

Do you have any polishes from this collection?

Thank you for taking a moment of your day to spend with me.  Huggles!

*tomorrow, "Mimosa's Before Mani's"


  1. I have four of the six you won, not this one though as it s like a couple I already had. Don't put it in your blog sale box just yet, try it as a base for some type of nail art!

    1. I may have not tried any from this collection if it hadn't been for winning them as none really struck my fancy when first seeing them. I would like to eventually get "Passions for Petals" and "Snap My Dragon". I may do as you suggest and hold onto this one a little while longer just to see if I can come up with a more interesting way to wear it. Which is the other one you don't have?


I love hearing from y'all and will respond (eventually, lol) to all comments left here.
