Just in time for Valentine’s Day…

Love is in full bloom! Embark on a love affair this spring with China Glaze Romantique, a stunning new collection of love-inspired shades. Featuring twelve, chrome finished hues, the Romantique collection brings you love in color with sweet nail lacquers in an assortment of harmonious shades for spring. The Romantique collection includes:

The Cools:
Admire – Lilac Shimmer
Adore – Turquoise Pearl
Awaken – Platinum Silver
Cherish – Shimmering Sea Green
Devotion – Metallic Lavender
Harmony – Brilliant Violet

Emotion – Berry Pink
Delight – Bubblegum Pink
Joy – Mauve Shimmer
Magical – Metallic Bronze
Passion – Gilded Gold
Poetic – Coral with Gold Flecks

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s so refreshing that China Glaze decided against the clichéd Valentine’s Day color palette. If I see one more brand pushing red and pink foil hearts floating in a bottle of clear lacquer, I’m going to scream.

As the name implies, these shades are romantic and whimsical, but the chrometastic finish gives them edge. The formula is pigment-rich, so you really only need one coat; however, metallics tend to highlight every ridge in the nail, so you would be smart to buff and/or apply a base coat, pre-polish.

My current faves are Magical and Joy. Speaking of Joy, I’d better keep this one away from Mama Spoiled Pretty (also named Joy) before she starts begging. Mom loves a purple polish, and she somehow manages to relieve me of almost every plum, grape and eggplanty shade that comes into my possession. But she did “bring me into this world” and “never let me want for anything” – so I suppose I could share.

While we’re on the topic of sharing…I’m pleased to announce that this week, Spoiled Pretty is teaming up with China Glaze for a romantical giveaway. Two sets of Romantique are up for grabs!!!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, February 1st. Two winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, February 2nd, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. residents only.

Good luck!

    I personally think China glaze has the best formula…I bought ‘For Audrey’ and if I was really careful all I needed was one coat and it wasn’t too thick or thin!

    Hey Aleksis…
    I’m glad you commented. I’m always looking for a good polish. It seems there aren’t many out there that last more than a day without chipping and if you put on 2 coats it will bubble.

    I may need to try these. Thanks.
