Swatches of China Glaze Capitol Colours

Sally Beauty Supply is having a buy 2 get one free sale for the month of April, so over the weekend I picked up 3 colors from the Capitol Colours Collection. I got Fast Track, Hook and Line,and Stone Cold.

Fast Track, I love all the sprakle in this, I wasn't sure if it would compliment my skin tone but it turned out to be great and I really love how it looked on me.

Hook and Line, I really love this color but I did have to be careful applying it, it seemed a bit thick and it could get a tad streaky if you use too many brush strokes.

Stone Cold, this is a matte, my first matte ever so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I am very please with this polish, it applied beautifully, so smooth and dried quick.

I decided to stamp a design from Red Angel using plate # RA-106. I used Hook and Line on top of Stone Cold, you can see all of the Red Angel plates here

I would still like to get a few more colors from this collection, so if I do, I will post more swatches at a later date.

Red Angel nail stamp plates

While I was browsing on Amazon, I came across some nail stamp plates that had great reviews so I decided to order them. These plates are etched very deep, almost too deep, a lot of polish goes into the grooves and can smear when you stamp, so try to scrape excess polish off thouroughly. You also  need to be careful handling them because they can be sharp and are hard to pick up from a smooth surface.  Overall I'm very happy with them, they are affordable at $12.99 plus $3.99 US shipping. They can be purchased here Red Angel nail stamp plates

Pouch they come in

There are 21 plates

 Here is a manicure I did using plate RA-108.  I used China Glaze Ingrid as a base color and stamped with China Glaze Wagon trail.
