China Glaze Swanky Silk from “Bohemian” collection, swatches and review

Hey everyone,

Wearing China Glaze Swanky Silk color on my nails feels almost like playing “I Spy” game and trying to spot all the multi-chrome color changes that this color provides! 🙂

It’s a sophisticated champagne color with very strong rose and khaki-gold flash. Indoors with artificial light i could swear i’m wearing an intense platinum mirror metallic polish and once i step out it becomes its laid-back rose-gold polish self again.

Due to the way it creates two darker lines at the sides, it makes my nails appear more narrow and elongated. I personally like this effect.

The name is very appropriate, since this color does remind me a lot of this pale gold-rose silk taffeta used in evening gowns and i almost expect it to produce a swishy sound when i look at it 🙂

Application of metallic polishes is a bit on a tricky side. Please make sure you leave around 1/3 of polish on the brush and try not to go around the same spot too many times. Allow full 3-5 minutes dry time between coats. For China Glaze Swanky Silk color, 2 coats were enough for full coverage and color show.

I find that China Glaze Swanky Silk color is work-appropriate and low-maintenance, considering that it’s more forgiving on the tip wear and matches all your outfits. On me it almost matches my skin color and i kind of like that. It’s a nice wearable neutral with a twist.

Hope you enjoyed the review and more swatches to come!

Take care,
Liliana

  1. Your nails are beautiful. I wish mine would look as nice as yours. As for the Swanky Silk – thx for the alert that it’s metallic. Nice polish, but not for me.
