Polish Pick: China Glaze IX

I love deep, rich colors on the nails for Fall, especially true dark browns. A lot of dark browns are so deep that they appear to be black in natural light, but that is not the case with China Glaze IX.  IX is from the China Glaze “X Collection” which debuted in 2007 celebrating China Glaze’s 10 year anniversary. It is a beautiful espresso brown creme and reminds me of a dark chocolate candy bar hmmm…

Orly Bonder Base Coat

2 coats China Glaze IX

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I’ve had this for at least two years and this is my first time using it. Silly me. It applied smooth and with careful application can be opaque in one coat. I always do two just in case. Dries fast to a super shiny finish. Reminds me of Misa Passion 4 Fashion which I’ve swatched on here a long time ago but will have to revisit so that I can get better pics for you guys.


When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
