NYFW: China Glaze at Tadashi Shoji

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers! As some of you may have noticed, I didn't post yesterday. No, it's not because I don't love you all (because obviously I do!) but it's because I got to attend New York Fashion Week yesterday! One of my favorite nail polish companies, China Glaze, asked if I'd like to attend some of the shows that they were doing manicures for and clearly the answer was a yes! Now this was my first time at a NYFW show and going backstage and all that fun stuff, so please forgive if my pictures aren't perfect, I was so excited that it was hard to make sure everything was working! So now, without further ado, on to the pictures!

So the color of choice was China Glaze Heart of Africa which will be part of the upcoming Safari Collection later this year!  Let me just say, this is stunning in person!  I seriously wanted to steal it but there were too many eyes around :)  I'm just a sucker for shimmery reds!  However apparently, the designer thought that the polish was too shimmery!  Unfortunately that's about the time I had to leave the backstage area to go around for the show so I'm not sure exactly which creme polish they put over Heart of Africa to make it less shimmery but as soon as I find out, I will let you all know!

I ended up getting to sit in the third row of the show since it wasn't full before it started!  So fun!  The clothes were gorgeous, very 1930's and of course the red nails looks fabulous!  I had an absolute blast and can't wait to go to another show tomorrow morning!  It was such a cool and interesting experience and thanks so much to China Glaze and Tadashi Shoji for letting me come! 

Have you been to any NYFW events?  Have you been following all the twitter feeds?

  1. That's exciting that you go to this show! It looks like it was a cool experience. I heard about the China Glaze Safari collection a while ago and it doesn't seem like anyone knew for sure if it was legit, but obviously now it is! Thanks for snapping a picture of the color and sharing it on here.
