China Glaze Mahoganie

Above & Below: China Glaze Mahoganie is a red-toned brown with small, multi-colored glitter. The finish is a little rough feeling, but I love the shade. All photos except the last one in this series were taken outdoors with no flash. The last one was taken indoors with a flash.

Another one of the Glitters! Mahoganie has a rather odd spelling, but it is a very pretty shade filled with the smaller, holographic glitter. At first glance, this shade appeared to me to be slightly mauve toned, but once on the nail it takes on a red-toned shade of medium brown. The base color is different than anything else I have, so I can't really compare it for you. The glitter is small and multi-colored and the final look is different and unique. I only used 2 coats and it covered nicely. The polishes with the smaller glitter in this collection appeal to me more than those with the huge glitter flakes. I'm looking at Dollhouse in the bottle and those glitter pieces are massive! I'm set with all of the glitters I want now from this collection.

Yen from Victoria Nail Supply e-mailed me last night and said they finally received the last polish that they were waiting for in the Glitters, Solar Flare. They're also going to be getting a special Halloween polish from China Glaze, but as yet, I haven't seen any pictures of it. Did you end up getting any Glitters? My favorites are probably Trophy Wife and Mahoganie, although there are a few others that I like almost as much. What were some of your favorites?


  1. Mahoganie is absolutely gorgeous! Definitely going to have to check that one out.

    My local Sally's FINALLY got the glitter collection & I bought: Atlantis, Medallion & Nova.

  2. I absolutely love Mahoganie on your nails. It's one of my favorites of all you have posted. I am behind on delving into the China Glaze glitter polishes. I have been really enjoying your posts on this line. I will be referring back to them when I am ready to do an order from Victoria Nail Supply that isn't a big box of rhinestones! ;)

  3. That's a beautiful shade on you Mary! I have to order the last of the collection. This is one I've been waiting for. It's very different looking. I was disappointed in some of the glitters. Some looked to close in color. I have to go visit VNS!

  4. No wonder this is one of your favourites! I love this one on you. It goes so well with your skin :)

  5. I love this color! Lets face it, i'm going to eventually cave and own close to all of these glitters lol. I love the earthy tone to this, and it's sooo sparkly! Looks fabulous on you :)

  6. This shade is amazing, very girly !

    I like your nails like this ;)

  7. Love the new length and shape! This color is gorgeous! I think I may need to place another ChG glitter order...

  8. This one suits you well! I only bought a few glitters that attracted my eyes :)

  9. This one is one of my faves too. Like the look of this length on you!

  10. Really unusual colour. Looks great and perfect for the A/W months.


  11. i know some people hate these type of comments BUT I like your nails short a lot better!

  12. Park Avenue~thank you, I love this one! You picked out some great ones for yourself.

    Diana~thanks :) I think I only have 3 more left to try. Dollhouse is scaring me a little bit though! The glitter is enormous.

    Lucy~yes, if I had seen them all in person I probably would have chosen a little differently, but all in all, I'm pretty happy with the ones I got. This one is especially nice.

    AllYouDesire~thank you, I'm pretty pleased with it myself!

    Kae~I have always loved earth-toned polishes and the glitter in this one really adds something special.

    Celine~thank you, I love it. My nails look alright short, so I don't mind them this way.

    Lady and Lion~I think I'm done placing orders for the glitters...untill I see a picture of one I don't have that I like! Glad you like the "new" nails :)

    Nail Fanatic~I probably bought a few I'll never use again, but I do like the majority of them.

    Kris~did you get this one? It's very nice, I'm really glad I got it. I tried to square off my nails a little, but it's a new shape for me so we'll see if I can keep them squarish.

    Eliza~it is unusual, in a good way. I don't have anything quite like this one.

    Beatriz~I don't mind the comments like that, thank you :)
