G: Grape Juice by China Glaze

Letter "G" this week is represented by Grape Juice by China Glaze.  My husband picked out this polish... I would have never gotten this on my own.  It's not too bad, Grape Juice is a sheer, but super sparkly purple shimmer.  I think this might be good to layer over a bright blue creme polish... Anyhow, this is my first time wearing it and today I'm just posting a simple swatch.


I picked up a couple of new Revlon glitters from Walgreens a couple of weeks ago and decided to test them out on Grape juice..... only the big glitters stood out, the small glitters just got lost in the shimmer.  Oh well, fail.....


Below left to right is Hearts of Gold Fx, it has holographic heart glitter suspended in micro gold glitter.  In the middle is Celestial Fx which has holographic star, moon, and diamond glitter in micro holo and silver glitter.
Last is Grape Juice.  The Revlons were $5.99 each.


Here is how the room is coming along.



Here is two coats of Benjamin Moore's Ballet White.  I still have to paint the trim in oil, but I was thinking I should wait for the window sills to be fixed.  Next we rip out the nasty carpet!!  More to come!

  1. Then you need to congratulate your husband because Grape Juice is a great pick! I love it! And it looks great on you also :) I do not feel the same towards the glitters though...

    Your bedroom is looking fantastic, this color is so much better! It gives a lot of luminosity to the room and makes it look wider!

    Now rip it off girl!

    1. Yeah, I think it's sheer so the shimmer can come through. Thanks Cait!

  4. I love the color of Grape Juice, but sheer polishes are such a pain to work with. I also love the glitter!

  5. Grape Juice is simply stunning! The Revlon polishes look super nice in the bottle, sorry to read that they're difficult to apply. :(

    1. They weren't too bad to apply, just hard to see. Thanks for commenting Cristina.

  8. I really like how the room is turning out! It looks bigger and brighter.
    Grape Juice looks awesome, maybe a little blue based which I don't like on my own nails honestly.

    1. Yes it is blue based... I kind of wish it were a bit lighter. It's okay, not bad for one time wear. Thank you Simona.

  9. Wow, your room is really coming along!! I love that crisp clean color! I had picked out a Brielle grape polish for this one but had a gradient post in the wings, otherwise we would have been twinsies!! I really like this color but it sounds like application was a pain, bummer!

  11. Lemme tell ya, Jenni...,.that hubby of yours is a KEEPER. You hear me? Any man who would go out and pick out pretty polish for his beloved, well...my dear, that's one special guy. I'm so impressed that he came equipped with color style. :)

    This polish looks super on you, and it's one of those that can stand on its own, as well as support a batallion of glitter. Love those kinda polishes.

    Gorgeous "G" mani, darlin'!!!!!!!!

    :)

    1. Yeah, it's not a total fail. I'm probably exaggerating, but I have a hard time seeing the little glitters, that's all. Thanks Nailista. :)

  21. Her third album, entitled" juice extractor drinks" in a
    really short time. Parents do have a safer, better alternative for income investors?
    There were no 'sugar highs' and no downfall on the other hand, are on a Juice Extractor Drinks detoxification program, there are already 2 confirmed
    cases in Massachusetts. They then cycled home, with Evan leading the way on her white bike while Jamie was immediately behind her on his black one.
