China Glaze Re-fresh Mint & GOSH Rainbow

As you can see, I've had a bit of a play around with backgrounds and colours. I'm in no way HTML savvy, so I have just used a background from a website. I wanted something a bit vintagey but not too sickly and girly. I think it works, let me know what you think and if you have any help/ideas/input - they are greatly appreciated.

I have something interesting for you today...

My only China Glaze - Re-fresh Mint. 2 coats.

I really like this colour, it's nice and summery. It's sooo grey and cloudy where I am today so unfortunately haven't got great pictures again. But this is colour accurate and in real life it doesn't make my skin look so red. I guess the green in the varnish draws all the green out of my skin in a photograph?

I decided to add something special so I put one layer of GOSH Rainbow over the top.

I LOVE this. Again, it hasn't pictured greatly due to the sun and when I tried using flash it just made the whole picture white. The flakes have flashes of yellow, green and peach when on top of the mint green. I think I may be alone here but I'm going to put this out there...I prefer these flakies over lighter polish. To me it's just nicer as a subtle effect rather than being so bold over blacks etc.

What do you think?


  1. Argh I so nearly bought Rainbow on Saturday and I wish I had now! Looks fab.

  2. You definately should. It's so versatile and puts a whole new twist on each and every one of your polishes! lol I sound like a GOSH spokeswoman.

  3. Rainbow is the only polish I have 3 of. And I love it over paler polishes too. I put it over pink and yellow recently and it rocked. There's a 3 for 2 at Superdrug. This is unmissable.

  4. You have 3!! lol. But if you're saying I may get a back up bottle and holographic if it's there. Not sure about any others. Do you recommend a 3rd one? Superdrug do such great offers!

  5. That is a gorgeous combination, I wish that I had Rainbow!

  6. Thanks gildedangel - you have to get it!

    Thanks Lily. It's nice and summery isn't it :)
