China Glaze - Hello Gorgeous!, swatch

Today is the first post for the United In Pink theme made by Pamsan and Lackycorner where many bloggers will show pink during this week for breast cancer awareness. Just wearing a random pink polish doesn't really help, but spreading information will, and what really helps is to give money for further research, maybe directly to your country's pink ribbon/breast cancer campaign, other ways is to buy pins, jeweleries, nail polishes made especially for the campaign where a sum from the total cost is donated.

I only have one polish like this and that's from last year's campaign but I know that most big brands like China Glaze, Essie, OPI etc have new pink ribbon polish collections for this season. And of cause I'll start with the polish I got, which is China Glaze - Hello Gorgeous!

Hello Gorgeous! has a clear base and is filled with fine glitter in light pink but there's also silver like prismatic glitter, or holographic glitter in it and it looks amazing in the sun or in lamp light. Of cause the amazing glitter was hard to capture but I've tried doing my best. Despite there's no base color, this polish covers really well, and it was almost opaque after three coats and I think shorter nails can get away with it, I applied a forth coat and that's what you see in the pictures. I'm not a pink-lover but this polish is really beautiful and if you're a glitter/pink lover you'll definitely love this.

  1. Delicate and lovely my dear Gelic!!! It took me a while to start liking pinks but I seem to slowly slip into that color! This polish suits you wonderfully and I am sure when layered it might show its versatility beautifully <3

    1. Thanks! I'm not that into pink but now days I'm not as reluctant as before, there are some nice pink but there's many more awesome colors too.. Layering seems also like a good alternative that I must try some day! :)

    1. Ja, den är sådär neutral men ändå "blingig" :P

  3. Håller helt med i vad du skriver i första stycket! Har inte kommit fram till hur jag kan bidra på bästa sätt, men mer än rosa naglar bör man väl kunna fixa.
    Detta var inte mitt favoritlack, för dammigt för mig :)

    1. Ja, något mer måste man göra, jag ska fundera jag med men jag har funderat att rätt och slätt ge pengar till fonden.
      Ja, jag kan tänka mig att det är en sån rosa som kanske inte faller alla i smaken, men jag gillar det faktiskt :P

    1. Va kul! :D Ja och ändå så måste jag säga att det är snyggare irl än på bilderna, det glittrar mer i verkligheten pga hologlittret.

  5. Det där visade jag förra året när Little Miss Nailpolish hade rosa vecka. Jag minns att jag tyckte det var så himla fint och jätteglittrigt. :)

    1. Japp, det har jag ett starkt minne av eftersom jag är rätt så säker att jag beställde det efter jag sett dina bilder! Och ja, sjukt glittrigt och fint är det. :)

  6. Awesome nail polish! I love this kind of glitter that get full coverage without looking tacky. Great post, Gelic, it's always a good thing to be aware of causes like this. :)

    1. Yea, I know what you mean, some glitter can make it look very thick on the nail but I guess that the fine glitter really helps smoothing things out! :) And thanks! :)

  7. Gillar blingigt men hade nog gärna sett att det fanns lite mer rosa i den.

    1. Ja, blingig är den, mer än på mina bilder men den är inte så starkt rosa så jag förstår att det inte är en favorit för alla.

  8. Jag tycker om den här lite gammelrosa färgen.

    1. Ja, jag föll faktiskt också för den. Gammelrosa är i vanliga fall inte min melodi men glittret räddar upp.

  11. "Just wearing a random pink polish doesn't really help... etc."
    -thank you for this words...

    I'm a bit mad 'coz of this internet compaign... 'coz many people like "oh, I'll put a <3 on my facebook page/paint my nails pink/put a ribbon on my page - I'm helping!"
    ok. if you buy something with ribbon - and part of this money really went to people who is in trouble - than you helping.
    I wont paint my nails pink, neither put something on my page. I has a relative with breast cancer - I'd better went and give a hand to her.

    1. Yea, I know what you mean and that's why I wanted to remind everyone about it! And I think that it's nice of you to help your relative, there are different kinds of helping concerning this matter and one is money/donation but as you say a big part is to be there for people close to us who has been through it... :)
