China Glaze Doll House - ABC Challenge "D"

Here is the beautiful China Glaze "Doll House" and is my choice for the letter "D" in the Alphabet Challenge I am participating in.  I think this would be a close dupe to Essie "A Cut Above" - but it doesn't have any of the tiny pieces of glitter...as you can see in the bottle shots.  It has a clear base, but I was happy with the amount of glitter you get when you apply it (this is 2 coats).  I wanted more of a full glitter nail, so I went with Butter London Rosie Lee as a base - that is the same shade of pink glitter, but a lot smaller.  I think this would also look really pretty over Orly Rage, which is a rose gold metallic polish.  I'm excited to work with this again and perhaps I can use it for my first jelly sandwich manicure!

  2. This is one of those polishes that I've always wanted, always see at online etailers, yet never pull the trigger to purchase! So pretty.

    1. That happens to me all the time. Then I see it and wonder why I kept passing it up.

  4. Essie Rae- we really need to compare nail polish stashes - I think we have a lot in common as far as colors go- lol! This is one of my all-time favorite layering polishes. I especially love to layer it over Essie Ballet Slippers. Really pretty combo.

    1. It's from a collection in 2009 called "Specialty Collection". I didn't know that - I just looked it up:) I had never heard of it before either until I saw pic of it on Pinterest. You couldn't see the name but you could tell it was China Glaze so I looked up China Glaze pink chunky glitter and there is was! The internet is a wonderful invention:)

    1. Yes, for a chunky glitter, it is pretty good. You get a lot on the brush and nail in one swipe:)

    1. I didn't either until I saw it on Pinterest and did a little research. I guess it was from 2009???
