Woo Hoo Blue!

To begin Swatch Month (which is probably going to turn into Swatch Week... sorry... it's just no fun), I decided what better to start with than the polish I won from Natalie's Nails! I won her Holographic "Onesie" Giveaway and she mailed me China Glaze High Def along with some other fun goodies.


I figured I would start with a swatch of this guy. Now, I thought High Def was not going to be as holographic as it is, but I was pleasantly surprised.


That is 2 coats of High Def. It applied so well. I was very impressed. Lucy decided she wanted to help me take pictures:


She had just come back from a skateboarding run with The Hunk and she was ready to model!

High Def was really nice. I really wanted to try a matte look with it, so I applied Essie Matte About You over top. It made the polish look like it had a suede finish, and unfortunately took away some of the holo effect, but I really like the final look!


So, will you be horribly disappointed in me if I just swatch for a week and not a whole month as promised? I miss nail art already!!! Also, do you like the new layout? Two thumbs up or down?

  1. A question... does the holo still show up as nicely with the matte top?

  2. Ashley - good question! For me, no. It didn't. The holo definitely muted it. It made it more of a suede looking polish. But I really liked it.

  5. I really love the Tronica collection. Hi Def is a fave of mine.

    I wouldn't blame you at all if you didn't swatch for a whole month! I'd miss the nail art, anyway.

    Plus, the new layout is great! A lot less distracting.

  9. I don't know that I'd be able to do a month full of just swatches! Start small and if you like it, stick with it. If not, just do a few at a time. I never would've thought to make a holo a matte!
