China Glaze Shell-O

Hi, there!  Super quick post today...I'm headed out for work in a few minutes.  I'm a little nervous about this because I'm headed to Grant Park to help set up our booth for a show this weekend.  Grant Park is where the Blackhawks held their rally today.  They still don't know how many people showed up for it, but it looked like more than the amount that showed up for Obama's rally in 2008!  In any case, go 'Hawks!  Great job on bringing Stanley home :)

On to the nails!  I picked up a bottle of China Glaze in Shell-O a few days ago.  China Glaze's 2013 Sunsational collection is split into cremes and jellies.  Shell-O is from the jelly half.

First off, I LOVE the color.  This photos show it as a touch more orange than it actually is.  Neon brights like this always make my camera go haywire, but these really aren't too bad.  Shell-O is super, super sheer.  I'm showing 5 (!) coats here and I've still got a bit of visible nail line.

From what I've read, most of the jellies in this collection are like this.  So if you aren't patient, don't buy them lol

Now, as my boyfriend will tell you, I just can't leave well enough alone.  A single color all by itself on my nails?  No way!  So I jazzed it up a bit :)

I decided to sandwich 2 coats of Kleancolor's Chunky Holo in Candy between layers of Shell-O.  As you can see, Candy gave this manicure a lovely golden flash in the sunlight and a nice depth in other light.  A perfect summer combo!

Thanks so much for reading!


  1. Bwahaha...:( stop torturing me! I haven't been able yo get this one! It's gorgeous!

  2. Wow! That is a gorgeous color. I've been making a wish list for after my self imposed July-no buy, and these Sunsational jellies are almost at the top.
