China Glaze Fast Track and Color Club Covered in Diamonds

These are the two nail varnishes I bought from eBay, I've got some swatches to show you.


The first one I'm going to talk about is Fast Track by China Glaze, this is from The Hunger Games collection and represents District 6 which is transportation.  It is a soft beige with a lovely gold shimmer through it.  It actually doesn't suit my skin tone and looks a bit sickly against it but I am still going to wear it anyway, I love it!  It is opaque in 2 coats but on the nail wheel I have used 3 for good measure!

The second one is Covered in Diamonds by Color Club which is a 'flaky' nail varnish, pieces of iridescent plastic mixed in with clear polish which makes an interesting top coat.  I had looked up swatches of this before I bought it so I didn't have high hopes for it and I was right, it is a wee bit shit compared to all the other wonderful ones out there!! However it was only about £4 including p&p - which cost more than the polish! - so for the money is isn't bad!


I applied it over 3 dark shades as I thought that would bring out the colour more, and then a light one:

L to R: Nails Inc - Little Venice; Black; Sinful Colors - Rich in Heart; OPI - Russian Navy (not CF);

It does quite an interesting effect to a plain nail varnish but definitely not as good at the more expensive ones.  And it does indeed show up a lot more against a darker base, there are a lot of pretty colour reflects that show up as it moves in the light, the main ones being blue and orange.


Alone is it fairly unexciting but here is a swatch anyway!  For all the swatches I used 2 coats of Seche Vite over the top to try and smooth it out!

Application is kind of how you would expect when trying to apply little bits of plastic to your nail!  Some pieces stick up or hang off the side of the nail, and you need to be careful while applying so that they are nicely distributed and not all just stuck together in one area!

I've not tried removing this so not sure how that will go!
