CMYK'd China Glaze Snow Globe + TGIF: Sticks n' Stones

One last hefty post for my week of CMYK-themed posts! I've got China Glaze Snow Globe to show you first, as well as 3 different takes on the popular Cover Band Sticks n' Stones polish for this week's TGIF: Thank Goodness, Indy Indie Friday! post.

First up I've got China Glaze Snow Globe! Here's just one coat of Snow Globe over Jesse's Girl Girls Night Out (blue), Color Club Almost Famous (yellow), China Glaze Fuchsia Fanatic (pink), and Zoya Raven (black).




ChG Snow Globe is a really beautiful effect glitter containing different sizes of opalescent pieces that shift colors (lots of blue-green, pink-yellow, red-orange type shifts like a flakie). It looks really interesting over all the colors, but not as impressive over yellow. I really liked it over pink & black.
You can see this polish alone in this wintery nail art post.


Now Sticks n' Stones!!! Sticks n' Stones is from the brand 'Cover Band' from the etailer Ninja Polish. It's a combo of different sizes and shapes of black and white glitter with a little sprinkling of sparkly opalescent glitters. I love that there are square in it because I <3 glitter.

flash; look at the shimmer in Zoya Raven on my pinkie!! So pretty!

This is sort of a controversial polish, and for any collectors out there - the bottle in the giveaway is in the original round bottle from when it was first released (the Ninja Polish house-brand polishes have all switched to a different shape bottle since then). This is one coat over the same base colors as the ChG Snow Globe Swatch - Jesse's Girl Girls Night Out (blue), Color Club Almost Famous (yellow), China Glaze Fuchsia Fanatic (pink), and Zoya Raven (black). I've also thrown in some photos of it matte-ifyed with Hard Candy Matte-ly in Love tc. I really like this glitter and all the variations of black and white glitter; really fun layering and looks good over everything. I especially like Sticks n Stones over yellow in this swatch.



Now I'm curious, do you have Sticks n' Stones or any of it's various counterparts? Love it, hate it, meh it? I love black and white glitters! I especially love it paired with yellow in the above swatches.

Ninja Polish Cover Band polishes are available at the Ninja Polish store ($9). You can view updates and new colors on the Ninja Polish Facebook page.
