China Glaze Lighthouse and White Cap (Anchors Away, Spring 2011)


One "ewww" and one "ohhhh"...

China Glaze Lighthouse
This one is the "ewww". I want so badly to find a medium yellow shimmer that I actually like. They all look horrible on me and the application on this one was not at all fun. The above is three coats (with super obvious VNL) and I didn't dare do a fourth coat because the formula was thick and hard to manage. This is on the second day of wear and I already had a few chips. :(

China Glaze White Cap

It's like fairy dust! Yes, it's sheer. It's very sheer. This is four coats but the formula was very smooth and easy to use. I don't really know how to describe this color: technically, it's white? But it's white shimmer shot through and through with this opalescent glass-fleck-like shimmer. It's seems like it's almost equal parts opalescent shimmer and white shimmer. It's just so ethereal and pretty.

I have lighthouse also...you're so right about the application & color. The color looked much better online then it does in person or on. I will have to get the white cap. It reminds me of frosty, which I love. I've went through half a bottle already. :)

Glad to know about Lighthouse. I think I'll skip it. White Cap is pretty but I believe I have several bottles in different brands like it. It will save me money! Looks lovely on you.
