|If you’ve been wondering what’s next from China Glaze, I’ve got the answer. One brand new collection, Retro Diva, that takes us back to the bell bottom wearing, pet rock days of the 70s and a collection of existing China Glaze shades repackaged with a Horoscope theme named What’s Your Color?
They’re actually a perfect fit if you think of all those cheesy 70s flicks where sleazy, hornball guys ask “chicks” what their sign is. Ah men, such the pickup artists.
As much as I hate to admit it, I’m quite the disco fan so I’m all over this concept. I do own Pure Disco 1 & 2 and various Abba CDs. So give me some Saturday Night Fever, Thank God It’s Friday w/Donna Summer & The Commodores, Roller Boogie (tell me I’m not the only one who’s seen it) and I’m good to go. I mean I totally embraced Swingtown last summer, in spite of Grant Show’s horrid porn ‘stache. FYI, Swingtown is re-airing on Universal HD every Friday at 10pm. You’re welcome!
So let’s check out these groovy collections, shall we?
Cords – rustic gray shimmer
Short & Sassy – a deep burgundy shimmer
Let’s Groove – rich eggplant purple shimmer
Stella – rich purple/pink berry shimmer
Skate Night – rich mahogany red shimmer
Far Out – light neutral brown with gold shimmer
Stroll - deep red with a small particle of gold glitter
Thunderbird – rich red shimmer
Drive In – orange/red shimmer
Street Racing – deep copper shimmer
Free Love – brilliant orange shimmer
Cruisin’ – golden orange shimmer
Maybe it’s just me but as soon as I set eyes on this collection, I flashed back to that hilarious 80s commercial for Freedom Rock. I’m sure you younger fanatics have no clue what I’m talking about but it’s a classic. You can’t tell me Leo‘s character from That 70s Show wasn’t based on this dude. Check it and have a good Friday laugh.
As a typical switchy, curious, chatty Gemini, I’ve always been into the whole Astrology thing. The ALU mom is too. She even went to have our star charts read by famed Cleveland astrologer Sandra Leigh Serio when I was younger. Supposedly I was born under a Grand Trine which has its good and bad points. Anywho, here are the polishes paired with each sign, I’ve linked back to shades I’ve previously reviewed. Just click the name to view.
Aries: Salsa – Red is the color of love, fertility and energy. You are courageous, you persevere and you love to be part of the action.
Taurus: Rich & Famous – Pink protects and brings peace of mind. You’re a social butterfly, secure in yourself and with a warm personality.
Gemini: Solar Power – Yellow signifies agility of mind, intellect and inspirational thought. Mellow and contented, people come to you for advice.
Cancer: Platinum Silver – Silver suggests optimism. Peace flows from you and around you.
Leo: Code Orange – Orange emits positive vibes of well-being, warmth and optimism. You keep life interesting with your sunny outlook and love of motion.
Virgo: Bermuda Breakaway – Navy instills self –confidence and helps steady nerves. Virgo, everyone wants you on their team.
