China Glaze: Avant Garden

Needed to get a couple from the new Avant Garden collection from China Glaze as they are so very stunning.  I bought Life is Rosy (a deep rose crème) and Fancy Pants (a deep blue with pink and gold shimmery bits). 

First up I tried Life is Rosy.  The coverage is really very good.  It goes on well in one coat and doesn't need a second unless (like me) you feel naked without one. I love the colour, I really do but something just doesn't work with my skin tone, I think.  So I slapped on Disco Gold from Rimmel from their Rock your Colour line. Still not sure about Life is Rosy which is disappointing because it really is a pretty pink.  I'm going to keep persevering with it in nail art, though to see if just being a highlight colour works.

Anyway, the proof of the pudding and all that:

and in slightly better light:

What do you think? Yay or nay?

Thanks for stopping by.
