China Glaze Skyscraper Takes Glitter to New Heights

Two kinds of 'Skyscrapers' as seen from the High Line

China Glaze "Skyscraper" is the knock-out blue glitter polish from this fall's Metro collection. The name of this shade is right on - this polish dazzles just like the city lights at dusk :)


Say goodbye to layer after layer of glitter polishes of the past - seen below, this is just (2) coats of "Skyscraper"! The glitter pieces are suspended in the cool blue jelly and the balance of color and glitter is perfect. Because the blue is thin, the silver glitter takes on a range of color. Like looking down into water, as the glitter gets deeper, so does the color. I'm excited about this kind of glitter polish and am looking forward to more like it!

Did you pick up this beauty from the Metro collection? If you're located in Manhattan, I saw the Metro collection (and a large selection of China Glaze polishes) at Beauty Plus Salon on Broadway between 96th and 97th.
