China Glaze Spring 2008 – OMG! 2BKEWL

It’s rare that a nail polish collection comes out with so much pre-sale buzz as this OMG! Collection from China Glaze. Now I don’t know if it was part of their marketing scheme but a few lucky MUA members were able to find these beauties prior to release and it certainly drummed up a lot of excitement.

Just as I’m not a sheer girl, I know not everyone is a holo lover. It’s a lot of sparkle and shimmer to pull off and not necessarily appropriate for all occasions. Not that it stops me from wearing them. I can’t help but be mesmerized by my rainbow nails when ever the light hits them. So when I laid my eyes on these colors, I swooned a bit.

The OMG! collection lacquers are all very pigmented and opaque with two coats. They dry to a smooth matte finish so you really need a top coat to make them glossy. Though considering how many people are looking for a matte top coat, you might like these on their own. The images below are without a top coat and to be honest, they are a good but not great color representation. The shades are a bit bolder in person but I think the finish prevented me from capturing that.

Normally I would do individual reviews but I feel the pics speak for themselves. The formula and application is consistent through all the colors; a bit on the thick side but still even. I did end up with a bit of cuticle dragging from OMG but that issue could have been due to rushing between coats.







The OMG! collection has just started shipping out so look for them at your favorite China Glaze retailer. Stay tuned for 2BHOT Collection swatches tomorrow.

    I can’t believe how much I want a nail polish called “OMG”.

    It’s wrong but so right.

  9. Sara says:

    Wow, what great swatches – definitely making me want to run out and buy! But, a question and a comment first… WHEN is someone finally going to put out a green holo, and I wish CG has used this opportunity to put out their version of Day at the Peach… :o( Guess not this time!

  12. brazenspider says:

    Thanks for the photos! These are the perfect collection for me – now if they will only get here! For one of the anonymous posters – I think there is a green in this collection, but in the warm part.

  13. CincyFan says:

    Anon- branzenspider is right, there is a warm collection as well. I will posting swatches of those later today. There is a green but it’s a lighter yellow based green. And there is also a peachy holo.

    FYI – I will be posting the 2BHOT collection this evening since I’m still not satisfied with the images.

  14. Andrea says:

    i wish i knew where i could get this here. /swoon

  15. Stacie says:

    I love BFF..gah, another one I want because of your blog! :-)

  16. Janey says:

    “OMG,” indeed! I LOVE holos, and I LOVE CG, so I’m going to be in heaven! The “Kewl” set is 6 out of 6 for me… I wish more n/p companies offered sets organized this way, since no matter how much I love a “warm” color, it ends up making me look like I’m positively ill if I wear it (though L8RG8R is the EXACT shade I’m gonna wear on Cinco de Mayo – and to drink margaritas by the pool this summer!).
    Thanks once again for doing so much work to show us what each polish looks like in SHADE & SUN/FLASH!! It’s much appreciated!
    P.S – WHY isn’t CG sold at ULTA, SEPHORA, etc, like OPI & ESSIE? Where do I go to buy them, exactly? (Writing from L.A., CA)

  17. juvenescent says:

    yes!yes!yesyesyesyes! :)

  18. KattG says:

    Hey Cincy!!!!

    Would you let us know when and if you add a base coat and/or top coat on your pics, how many coats of color you apply and if you think adding the base & top coat changes the color (aside from matte or shiny).

    thank you!!!
