China Glaze “Fortune Teller” Swatches, Review & Surprise
China Glaze “Fortune Teller”
For the Halloween season 2009, China Glaze released a limited edition set of spooky lacquers. They were (what else) Sally Beauty exclusives. “Fortune Teller” was one of them, and is a basic black cream base filled with glitter in the perfect shade of Halloween-orange. The glitter comes in three sizes, all hex shaped. All swatches are of two coats.
So in adding graphics to my pictures, I felt a supernatural urge to give a shout out to Miss Cleo. Except, only upon googling “psychic” did I find the vast majority of my search results to be pictures of psychic cats:
They are taking over the internet. In fact, are you guys aware that if you google “cheeseburger” (that’s right, spelled correctly) instead of food the google gives us mostly CATS? Everything cats. Everything cheezburger network.
But on to the swatches and review as I have a special surprise hidden in this post!
SEE MORE AFTER THE JUMP..
I used a normal topcoat in these swatches, so you can really see what this polish is all about without any misrepresentation or dilution. Once it dries, there is a slight grittiness to it. It isn’t bumpiness that I would point out the most with this one, as it’s really not bad, just a very dry to the touch finish.
I then ran around my house to dig up one of my favorites things to use in these swatch pictures. An heirloom “crystal ball” complete with mystical seahorse stand:
Polishes from this set are now extremely hard to find. The last time I saw “Fortune Teller” it was about 4 months ago on Ebay and was being sold for $15+ship.
But…. I see…
something in your future…
