New Year’s Nails: China Glaze Whirled Away

Apparently, the Cirque du Soliel collection with China Glaze has been out for ages, but I only discovered it a few days ago upon seeing a swatch for their black & white glitter, Whirled Away:

I’m not sure what the base color in the above photo is, but this glitter is so chunky and graphic that it really doesn’t matter! No, really, Google Image Search proves that just about any base color looks good.┬áNot too shabby for $5.50!

What will your nails look like on New Year’s Eve?



  • Wow, that nail polish looks like the 1980s — and I mean that in a good way. I love the geometry. I think my nails will have some new magnetic nail polish my husband got me for Christmahannukwanzika-Winterfest. I’m actually a little intimidated by this nail polish, which is redonk, but there, I said it. Maybe one of my New Years Resolutions will be to stop being terrified of new nail polish.

  • I haven’t used it yet, because I’m still snowed in at my mother-in-law’s, and can’t locate nail polish remover to rid myself of my current color. Whenever we brave the tundra and arrive back at our house, I’m going to probably make a post about it. I’ll come back to this thread and leave a link to the dramatic tell-all. Hold onto your britches, but not your breath, because it may be a few days!

  • Amazing! That would look great over a pale pink or tan. LOVE IT. (I need to update my polish collection.)
