Kid-Approved

It probably comes as no surprise that in order to get the stamp of approval from my 9-year-old niece, a nail color must be either 1) exceptionally bright or 2) glittery. This one made the grade:

China Glaze Papaya Punch
Island Escape collection, summer 2011

She does feel, however, that I should embellish it with some stamping.

This was one of the two colors I was looking forward to most when I bought the Island Escape collection (the other was Electric Pineapple).  It turned out to be much darker on the nail than I was expecting, but I like the color.  The formula, on the other hand . . . not so much.  Which is very unusual for me with China Glaze. This one was thick, gloppy and streaky - very difficult to apply.  I used two coats and still have some minor bald spots, but I didn't have time for a third coat.  And it's likely to get some stamping over top, per my niece's instructions.  She specified white . . .
