China Glaze: Swanky Silk

Hi everyone! Today's polish is a really pretty shade from China Glaze's Bohemian Collection... Swanky Silk!

This is a pretty light gold... other swatches I've seen of this show a peachy-pink duochrome quality, but I couldn't see it. Swanky silk was very sheer, I used 2 coats for the photos... maybe a third would have brought out the duochrome better?



I really liked this polish overall, I've already taken it off but will definitely go with a third coat on my next try. I think this would look great for the fall with a darker color, I'll see what fabulous combo I can come up with!

I purchased my bottle of China Glaze Swanky Silk at my local Sally Beauty. Their August sales flyer says the Bohemian Collection is excluded from this month's $4.99 China Glaze sale and are regular price, which I believe is $6.99.... which leads me to my first money saving tip! Sally's has a Beauty Club, and you get discounts on literally EVERYTHING you buy! With this discount, ANY China Glaze polish will always cost you $4.99! Even the brand new collections! The best part is, membership is only $5 per year, and you get a coupon on your receipt for $5 off your next purchase - so basically it's free - which makes joining totally worth it. You can check out the difference in pricing on their website,, where you can also sign up for the Beauty Club!

Welcome to Polish Problem!

Hi everyone!! Welcome to my brand new blog, Polish Problem! In honor of purchasing my 200th bottle of polish, I decided to enter the blogging world to chronicle my new journey and new love: NAIL POLISH!

I'm going to apologize in advance for my not-the-greatest-quality pictures, I've been saving a bunch on my phone to share with you all - but no worries, I'm working on getting an awesome new camera, so hold tight for super amazing macro shots!

You can expect daily updates from me, lots of pictures, and details on where I bought my stash! I love to challenge myself on where to find the cheapest prices, and I'll absolutely be sharing my steals with you! I'll also give a weekly review of sales from stores like Ulta, Sally Beauty, CVS, Walgreens, etc, so you always know where to find the best deal!

Stay tuned for what I hope to be a wild and exciting ride!
