New! China Glaze Crinkled Chrome Polishes: Wrinkling The Sheets, Don't Be Foiled, & Iron Out Details

Welcome to My Boyfriend Hates Makeup 2014! This is my first post of the new year, so I thought it was only fitting to post a brand NEW product from one of my favorite mainstream companies, China Glaze. I was sent three of the new Crinkled Chrome polishes, which is a new take on the textured trend, to review for you. Check out the press info directly from China Glaze and I'll show you my swatches below:

Featuring a new technology, China Glaze Crinkled Chrome lacquers apply like a regular polish, crinkling as it dries for an edgy, chrome-like finish.  The six new gorgeous pastels have the sophisticated, polished appeal of the season, but add a contemporary edge and sense of novelty to winter nails. 

China Glaze Crinkled Chrome will be available in January at beauty supply stores nationwide including Sally Beauty Supply and Ulta.  Individual shades will retail for $7.50 MSRP.  


First up is Wrinkling The Sheets.  This is a pretty seafoam green color, the shades themselves are really pretty.  

The texture is made up of circular beads as well as bar glitter, which is the new part.  It looks like crumpled wrapping paper, or, as my astute pal Sam mentioned, like wrapped chocolates.  The swatches show two coats, no topcoat:

I get slight lobster hands from this color, which makes me sad.  The polish itself is easy to work with, if a bit thick because of the texture.  It dries SO incredibly quickly, that is a pro, and even though it is metallic, there are few brush strokes, which is another plus.


Here it is without flash:

Next up, a pretty medium, almost denim blue shade, Don't Be Foiled.  This also shows 2 coats, no topcoat:

Last up is the darkest shade I received, Iron Out Details.  This is my favorite color of the three, it's almost a sky blue or a light periwinkle?  Of the three, I may reach for this again.

So, what do you think? I am a huge texture fan, and I do give China Glaze credit for being the first to try a twist on the texture look.

However, regarding this new bar glitter texture trend, I cannot say I am 110% on board.  Bar glitter and metallic polishes are two of my least favorite characteristics in any polish, so combining the two isn't an instant win for me.  

As for this group, the three colors I received are pretty and the dry time is really impressive.  I would recommend picking up a bottle if you like to try new trends or are simply gaga over the texture trend.  

You can find CG at Sallys, beauty supply stores, and on their standalone site.

Thanks for looking,

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:

Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.

Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.

Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?

I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!

The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!


PS: Fuck Trump!
