Swatch Day - China Glaze Agro

Happy Friday guys!

Today's swatch brings you my new favorite green in my collection, China Glaze Agro. When this collection first came out, Agro was one of the ones that made me go "meh". Now I can say without a doubt that I am so glad I decided to bring it home! This is such an amazing dark olive green with golden shimmer that comes out in every light. Normally darker colors wash me out badly due to my being super pale but this is such a warm tone that I love it. Look at that shimmer!






Polishes used:

  • Seche Rebuild base coat / NYC In A Minute top coat
  • China Glaze Agro
  • All pictures are with two coats

I see some serious Christmas nail art in this polish's future! Well, normal nail art too. I didn't think I would love this polish as much as I do. Formula was great, no issues with application at all. This one tends to show brush strokes, though I found that the second coat took care of that nicely. After reading reviews I was kind of scared of this polish but it wasn't bad at all to work with. When first applied it can dry a little on the flat side but when you add a top coat the shimmer in this really pops out. I was actually kind of surprised how much of a difference top coat made. It wasn't quite as dramatic as putting top coat on say a true matte polish, but it was still pretty darn noticeable. Overall I am really happy with this polish and I am currently hatching many evil plans for it's use in nail art of the near future.

Have a great weekend everybody, thanks for reading! I'll be back soon!

  2. I like it a lot, but feel I have others very similar, so I didn't buy it!

    1. If I had something close enough to this I would have passed it up too, but luckily I didn't have anything like it so it got a new home haha.

  3. Gosh you're organized! We appreciate seeing your skinny nails even when you're away :D

    Also, just fyi, you've made me stalk my Sally's just in case they had stragglers from this collection on sale. It has not gone well so far and the girls are starting to look at me funny. Your fault.

    1. I LOL'd so hard at organized, I typed all these scheduled posts in like one night. So many brain cells dead from acetone fumes.

      I accept that blame completely, it's worth it to not be the only one who gets weird looks from the Sally's girls :P

    1. I have a feeling this will be a nice stamper color just like Harvest Moon, experiments currently underway hehe.

  5. I'm such a huge fan of Agro--it's one of those polishes that looks nice in the bottle, but it's a total stunner when you put it on. :D

    1. It really is, I still can't get over the difference top coat makes in the shimmer on this sucker too.

    1. Thank you! It's one of the few olive toned colors that doesn't make me look jaundiced >.<
