China Glaze - Fancy Pants & Keep Calm, Paint On

Crap... I meant to schedule this post for Tuesday... But then I mistakenly scheduled it for last Tuesday, and apparently, Blogger doesn't let you time travel for posts, so I guess you're getting two posts tonight.

In this post I'll be showing you my picks from the China Glaze Avant Garden Collection!
However... I only picked up two. Haha! There were a few more I kinda wanted but I am trying to be selective with my purchases.

Here are the two I felt I couldn't pass up:

China Glaze - Fancy Pants
Fancy Pants is a lovely indigo blue, with great pinky-purple shimmer. Formula is awesome, it covers in 2 coats. Dries really quick too! 
Some people have an aversion to blue polish, and I'll never understand why. I love having blue nails!

China Glaze - Keep Calm, Paint On
This one I bought both for the color and the name. I have a thing for "Keep Calm and Carry On" posters and other stuff, so of course I need a polish that is playing off of that. Plus, it's a great color! Mint green with pearly white shimmer? Sign me up.
Formula on this one is a bit thin, you'll likely want three coats, but it dries swiftly.

If you want to see swatches of the rest of the collection, check out my pal Carly's post.


  1. I love Fancy Pants! After my nail polish ban, I'll be purchasing it :) I love all your swatches! Do you ever edit any of them for color match purposes?

    1. thank you! and nope, i don't edit them! maybe once or twice with nail art.

  2. I have Fancy Pants and I love it,I've also picked Snap my dragon and Mimosas before manis, they're all great :)

  3. Love 'm both, didn't know the blue one had a lovely shimmer in it! Pretty!

  4. I have fancy pants but I haven't used it yet, I don't know why though.. its awesome!
