china glaze grape pop (up and away)

it's time for an oldie today, and it is china glaze grape pop, from their up & away collection from spring 2010.

as i look at the polishes from this collection, i see that it was a really successful one, with so many of them making it into the core line, such a classic spring line.

grape pop is a real beauty. i love purple cremes, and this one is among the prettiest there are. it has a slight blue undertone, but never going into the blurple area. it is really tricky to capture it faithfully, it got too blurplish in my photos. it is well pigmented, and my only complaint is, as usual, china glaze's brush, but it's just my taste.

i used base (china glaze strong adhesion) + two layers of polish + top coat (essencee BTGNTS)
