Amor de Lacquer: China Glaze Up and Away collection

| March 9, 2010 | 14 Comments

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to

It’s been a looooong time since I’ve indulged in a China Glaze collection. While most of them have been appealing to me, I’m trying to be a little more cautious with my polish purchasing. Sometimes you get to a point where you just have too many of the same color, or something similar, ya know?

But China Glaze got me this time around. Check out the promo pic…

A collection of creams? *faints* Must.snag.all!

But snag all I did not do. You see, I have this thing called an empty wallet self-control. I only purchased 4 of the 12 polishes. And those babies would beeee….

Re-Fresh Mint is soooo cool. I love pale creamy greens. I don’t have any colors like this is my collection. It is definitely a must have. Even if it does tend to drag at the cuticles a bit.


Four Leaf Clover is ridiculous. In a good way, I mean. What a beautiful green. It seems like I would have already owned a color like this, but nope! My camera shows Four Leaf Clover looking a bit aqua-ish, but nope…it is a true green.


It’s such a fun color and it made me want to pull out my dotting tool and get to work.


I ca-learly need to be practicing with the dotting tool a bit, eh? Come on, class. We digress.

Grape Pop smudged on me a bit and now that I’ve had it for awhile, I’m realizing that I have other purples like it. But exactly how many gorgeous purple creams can you have?


Lemon Fizz is such a gorgeous soft yellow. I don’t have a yellow like this. While most yellows send you to Streaky Land, Lemon Fizz was absolutely perfect. Am I the only one craving Lemon Heads?


I funk-ed it a bit with some straight glitter.


What a great collection, China Glaze! I am quite satisfied with my owning only one-third (did I do my math right?)of the collection. Up and Away also has pink, peach and orange-ish colors; all worth a try if you are in the market for some new and cool polishes.

I got these from Head2ToeBeauty.comfor $2.99 a bottle.

Have you seen this collection yet? What do you think?

Your fellow nail polish junkie,

    Um no. No I do not know any such thing & will deny any such knowledge I may unintentionally stumble upon >.>

    This whole collection is pretty close to the top of the list once I really allow myself to indulge again. I can't quite call what I'm on a no-buy any more, since I've made a few *small* purchases … I called it a "not buying as much as I want to buy" last night, but that's a bit of a mouthful for everyday usage LOL.
