China Glaze High Hopes

Dear Lacqueristas,

China Glaze High Hopes is definitly in my personal top 20. I can't believe how bright and vivid this color is, I just get happy looking at my nails.

The picture does not do justice to the color. Imagine this 10x more vivid and brighter.

High hopes is part of the Up and Away collection. China Glaze calls the color Guava and I think they are pretty spot on. Hot pink/orange creme, so bright that it's almost neon-ish. Lovely finger licking color. I don't have any dupes in my stash so I can't compare. If you know/have a dupe or similar color, let me know! Feeling down on a rainy day? I suggest you wear this color. You would go out in shortpants, slippers and shades.

Do you guys own this polish? Can you show me a pic how it looks on your skintone?

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!

@ ShortAndSweetNails: Yeah this IS gorgeous and it would look AMAZING on either tips or toes. I think this is one of the few shades that would flatter ANYONE. It's not unique in it's finish as it's just a plain creme but aw saw pretty :-D

@ Rebekah: You totally remind me of the fact that I didn't mention the formula on this polish, and let me tell you it's a Pain In The Butt. Gloop-fest! I've mentioned this on MUA before and it seemed like I was the only one with this complaint on this particular polish. I couldn't add thinner as I don't have any B3F.
LOL I guess thats the first and last time Flying High flew high!

@ Anonymous: Yay! Good for you, I'm sure it will bring cheerfullness! Let me know how you like it!
