China Glaze - Fly

This is my manicure with China Glaze's Fly, from the 2009 Kicks collection. I really love this collection and even though I got into polish after it came out, I was able to track all 12 of them down pretty easy.

Fly is a purple with microshimmer. It basically looks like a fuchsia with a dash of purple thrown in. I expected this to be more purple from other photos I've seen :P but what can ya do? It is pretty but not what I had hoped. This is two coats on my shorty short nails.

Any colors you have gotten lately that are not exactly what you counted on them being?

  2. I think it looks great! Love the shimmer in it - I find it hard to find fuchsias without that uuuugly blue shimmer thing going on. This is definitely a winner - I shall have to track it down!

  9. "All the other kids with the pumped up kicks..." that song started running through my head when I read the beginning of this post :) Pretty pretty!

  10. I didn't buy this one 'cause I don't like a lot blue or purple shimmers in a hot pink polish, but I could change my mind for this one, as they are not really present !
    It's pretty on your shorties :)

  11. I got this shade also since I adore fuchsias. I was disappointed with this one too. It just does not have any of the good attributes a decent fuchsia needs. Rare for me to give away any fuchsia, but I did part ways with this one - knew I would not wear it again.

  12. I wished this purple was more purple too, though it is still a very pretty polish. Looks really gorgeous on you! :D I really liked the Kicks Collection a lot. Entourage, Sky-High Top, Custom Kicks...those are probably my favorites. I love the subtle shimmer that is in some of the polishes in this collection - the fine silvery shimmer-sparkle running through Sky-High Top, the fine gold shimmer-sparkle running through Custom Kicks... It's really beautiful! Plus the colors POP! They're so bright and really fun! <3

  16. This was actually one of my first ChG polishes. =) Which I never wore and eventually gave to my sister. I was disappointed with it too.

  17. Fly is on my favorites list.
    Personally I think that this polish needs a little extra attention because when people search in google foor china Glaze - Fly you practically always end up with Flying Dragon, which is another beauty, but ofcourse completely different then Fly. Great that you showed it! :D
