Awake, not awake

Good morning, loves!
I'm back at the grind again and it's gonna be a hefty week! I haven't been up for very long but I wanted to share a post with you before I refresh and redo yesterday's manicure. (Oh, time management...why are we not friends?)

This is China Glaze Awakening and I picked this up not to long ago on one of my Sally binges.

Two coats on index and middle, no base or top with weak sun
Three coats on ring and pinkie.

I saw this swatched on Colette's blog and I had to have it. It's a subtle duochrome that flashes some bronze. It looks really purple in the bottle but it's more of a pinky-mauve on the nail. I was falling in love as I was swatching because it's really pretty and multi-dimensional. It's a great choice for the times I need to look more "girly." (Don't ask. Really. Don't.)  I knew this would be awesome to layer with too.
And I have not been disappointed. I tried it over black and grey already and it looks gorgeous.

That is all I have for now. Time to get myself moving and ready to face the day!
Thank you for looking. Have a wonderful day!


  1. I love it, I've worn this a billion times and never get tired of looking at it!
    Didi you notice that it brightens your skin tone? :)

  2. I've been meaning to get this, I wonder if my Sally's has one? It's gorgeous! LOVE it. Looks fantastic on you!
    And......*coughsputtercough* There are ti....oh, you said not to ask. Right. *shuts up*
    Haha! JUST KIDDING!!

  3. I've never seen this one! Looks beautiful! How's the formula? I sometimes struggle with CG, if it's good I might need this one, lol :')

  4. So pretty, I love the slight duochrome effect.

  5. Thank you for the comments!

    Niki - You...girl. I said not to ask! J/K ;)You crack me up!

    Michèle - The formula is a little thin but the color builds well and dries quick. Hope that helps!

  6. Hi Migthy! Thats a nice color!! I like it very much! I'm a fan of duochromes. They're really great!
