I'm still playing around trying to do a gradient manicure that's post-worthy. I'm having some success, but not enough, as far as I'm concerned! Earlier this week when I was looking for polishes to talk about for my post regarding lesser-known polish brands, I came across so many untried's and polishes I'd completely forgotten I had...some were ones I don't even remember ever getting. That's not a good sign now, is it. Among those finds was the China Glaze Rodeo collection, one of their finest releases in my opinion. I'm certain I have never even tried most of them, but here are a couple that managed to make their way from the shelf to my nails: Lasso My Heart and Prize Winning Mare. LMH is shown with only 2 coats and I think 3 would've been perfect. It's a very pretty medium purple with a touch of gold veining. Unfortunately, the veining is more evident in the bottle before shaking it than on the nail, but I do love this color. Prize Winning Mare...now here's an intersting shade of gold--or is it beige? I don't dislike it, but maybe it lends itself better to a pedi color, or perhaps a darker skin tone or a Konad stamp color? It's a bit muddy or dull, but redeems itself slightly with a shiny topcoat. But it is different and unlike any other color in my collection, so it is welcome to stay.
