Like a Virgin #1 China's Glazed?

Since joining the blogging community, i've learned that certain items, products and brands are coveted by the blogging elite, which means it must be worth trying out if you can get your hands on it. I've been wanting to branch out my nail polish collection for some time, with China Glaze, OPI and Essie being top of my list for brands to test - so when i was browsing Amazon for some phone covers, and somehow stumbling across nail polish, i thought i'd treat myself to some varnish for the new season. So, here's the beginning of my Like a Virgin series, where i try out the brands that i've always wanted to but never quite gotten round to. I've been really lazy the past couple of seasons when it comes to nail polish, sticking to my staple Models Own Champagne colour every time i repainted, but the (little) sun we've had has tempted me into the bright colours of Spring and Summer.

I wanted some colours that would go with lots of things, so i don't have to worry about changing my nails all the time, so this is what i plumped for:

 China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Four Leaf Clover

I thought this would be a little more like OPI's Fly, but probably should have known by the name that i would be more of a green. However, the colour that it is is gorgeous - it's an amazing apple green, nice and bright for Spring and it such a versatile shade, BUT it did stain my nails pretty bad even after i only wore it for a couple of hours.. Note to Self: Use a base coat.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Flip Flop Fantasy

This is like nothing i own! The image really doesn't do it justice, i kind of thought this would be more of a coral colour but in actual fact it's an insanely neon pink with some coral mixed in! I'm not usually one for pink, well, anything(!) but i cannot get enough of this shade. It's amazing for Spring and will be even more perfect for Summer. It honestly is seriously neon, and until the weather picks up it's sticking as an accent nail to jazz up my hands!
