Kleancolor China Red

China Red is a lovely shade of medium red infused with fairy-sized gold glitter, so I'm loving this shade! The gold is evident as veining in the bottle rather than an even disbursement of glitter throughout the polish, but once applied (perfectly and fast drying in 2 coats) to the nail it displays itself more as a fine gold sprinkling of pixie dust over the surface of red. These pictures were taken in various lighting indoors with a flash and outdoors without a flash, although the sun was already setting. I can only imagine the beauty of this one in full sunlight. I am finding this brand to be very easy to work with and although I've only shared the 2 with you, I'm very impressed with the finishes and the shades. I still want to get back to the QRS polishes because those too impressed me basically for the same reasons. Too many pretty polishes and not enough hours in the day.

Don't ask me why, because I consider myself as to be on the technologically-challenged side, so even though I'm still learning about it, I signed up with Twitter. I thought it would be a good way to give you updates as well as keep better track of some of you and your activities. My Twitter contact information can be found in the upper right corner of my blog. I'll be checking your blogs to see if you Twitter and add those of you who do, or let me know in a comment below.


  1. Beautiful color, I love the sparkle in it! I want to see more!

    I too just signed up for twitter last night, I don't know what to do. Like what does DM mean?! Oh well I like to think I'm a fast learner so hoping to get the hang of it in a few days lol.

  2. I like this color!
    You'll like twitter. DM is just if you want to send a direct message to that person who is also following you.

  3. All this! I'm trying to avoid signing! This polish was so glossy. Very pretty.

  4. thanks for swatching that one Mary, it is definitely going to be part of my next Cherry Culture order :)
    I'm trying to avoid all this twitter frenzy, I'm already spending way too much time in front of the computer as is... but if my favorite brands of polishes keep givig out codes for free polish I might be *forced* to give in ^^
    (I read there's a potential free polish giveaway for those who follow zoya on twitter)

  5. I signed up for Twitter because of Zoya. The trouble is that I don't have a cell phone. Horrors! I don't know how to send any messages if you don't have one. It's all confusing. I did follow some people. I really like this red. Very pretty on you with that gold glitter. Another reason to visit Cherry Culture. Like I need one!

  6. You can download clients to use for Twitter if you don't want to use the web for updating - I use tweetdeck, and there's also twitterfox for firefox.
    I'm going to follow you Mary! I love twitter. It's a fun way to chat with everyone!
    As to this polish - GORGEOUS! I can see the shimmer in the bottle but the color on your nails looks lovely.

  7. Kae~yay! I will be happy to show you more. We'll figure out Twitter in no'll likely get the hand of it sooner than me though :)

    Velvet~it turned out super glossy, I agree, just as the other one did I tried. That's a good thing though!

    Lyndsey~glad you like it! Thanks for explaining that about Twitter, that seems so obvious once you tell us, but I couldn't figure it out either!

    Chocaddict~I'm pretty impressed so far with this brand, but I want to try a few more to make sure. I resisted Twitter for a while, it does seem like we have an overlaod of technology and ways to communicate these days though :)

    Lucy~I'm just using my computer for Twitter so far, I don't need Tweets coming across my phone constantly, but I'll probably add my phone eventually. You DO need a reason to go to CherryCulture~ha-ha!

    Nicole~thanks for the info, I feel silly sometimes because I don't 'get it', but there's a small learning curve I imagine. Thanks for following me, I add you too. Gald you like the polish!
