China Glaze Retro Diva in Stella

Below: Side-by-side comparison of the 2 purple shades in this collection. On the left is Let's Groove which I showed you on Tuesday. On the right is Stella.
The final polish I'll be sharing with you from the Get Down Tonight set in the Retro Diva Collection is called Stella. Who is Stella, I wonder? This is a medium violet shade with matching shimmer and is lighter than the other purple in this set, Let's Groove. As you can see by the comparison bottle picture, Stella has more red in it than Let's Groove, but I would have to say that I love them both equally. This is a nice set and although I thought some of the shades looked similar in the box, they are different enough that I'm certainly not unhappy with the fact that 2 of the 6 are shades of purple. Thanks again ladies, for all of your kind words about Max.
I'll have some exciting information to share with you tomorrow from Orly about some of their upcoming collections, along with an interesting fact I just learned about them today :)


  1. I think I might be in love with this shade!

    Thankies for sharing!!

  2. omg g0rjuz mary i adore this colour... cant wait to hear the news about orly

  3. That color is gorgeous! Ah I can't wait to try these all on :(

  4. I love the purple polishes. You need every shade there is! Looks gorgeous on you. Did you see that Orly has little charms on their Fairy Tale collection? I saw it on a makeup blog. I forget the name.

  5. I would love to see a coat of matte about you over this.

  6. Delaynee~thanks you, and I'm glad you like it! I do too :)

    Nailz~the more I look at this one, the more I love it!

    Nail Fanatic~it's a really nice collection. I was afraid they were all kind of similar or dupish, but they're really not.

    Kae~this would look lovely on you! It's a pretty color.

    Lucy~I really like purples, that's for sure. I saw those charms, but the boxed set didn't have them. Not like I need them, but they are cute!

    Chrissy~I'll mattify it for you soon!

  7. That pack of 6 really had some gems in it and Stella is a great color.
    Thanks for your swatches Mary :)
    Sadly it seems that from now on overseas customers like me will only be able to enjoy China Glaze colors on screen as I heard AII (the company that owns CG among other brands) doesn't want the e-tailers to ship their products overseas anymore :(

  8. Chocaddict~You're welcome, I enjoyed going through all of these myself! I've heard bits and pieces about the overseas deal but I'm not entirely clear on it yet. That would be a shame if it's true :(

  9. Beautiful!

    Funnily enough I'm waiting on an email from the UK ChG distributor so I'll see what they say about overseas distribution. I'm still buying all mine at an extortionate rate on Ebay.

  10. I'm dying to get Stella! It's so amazing!

  11. Helen~we'll all be interested in what they have to say.

    Alexlyndra~isn't it so pretty! Glad you love it, I do too.
