China Glaze Marry a Millionaire

Hello There:)  This is China Glaze Marry a Millionaire.  I am using this for my "V" in the Alphabet Challenge I am currently doing.  I am thinking I cleaned out my collection a little too soon - I don't have a "v" polish so I'm stretching it on this one - "Violet" starts with a "v" and this has violet shimmer:)  I also used a violet base - Ulta "Tutu Cute".

Trying to get a close-up of the bar glitter...

I was obsessed with finding Marry a Millionaire after it was hard to find.  I finally bought it on Ebay over 6 months ago and am now wearing it for the first time.  Do you ever do that?  I am thinking I have just been scared of the removal of it. 

 It has small lavender/violet glitter with fine string/bar glitter in gold and green.  It's really unique and very pretty....but again, I'm scared to remove it:(


After using Ulta Tutu Cute as the base, I was reminded of OPI A Grape Fit.  I pulled it out and sure enough, it's an exact dupe.  I painted them on a nail wheel and the Ulta is a bit more opaque on the first coat - but after two coats, they are identical.  Tutu Cute is still available in the new bottle type at Ulta. 


I hope everyone is having a great week:)

...and later that night - I removed Marry a Millionaire using the tin foil method and it worked like a charm.  I kept it on about 5 minutes and every single nail came off completely with one swipe.  I'll be wearing this more now that I know I can take it off with ease.

  1. I swear we're on the same wavelength... I almost posted my notd. As my V for violet, but I wanted to get my post up before work and didn't have time to explain the connection and get the inlink thingie up, so I guess I still have to come up with one, lol. Anyhoo, this is gorgeous. Glitter coated nails do have a certain over the top glam appeal, but I'm totally with you on being scared to remove it. ;p You should try the foil method and then post about your results! :D

  11. Love love love that glitter. And the tin foil method is a LIFESAVER!! I find that you can do it without the tin foil - just holding a cotton ball on your nail for a few minutes.
