Hello there! I'm sorry for my absence yesterday. It has been a busy week, but amazing week! Today, I have for you China Glaze Blue Sparrow. This came out in the summer 2008 INK collection. I'm pretty sure this was one of my first China Glaze nail polishes, along with Flying Dragon and Ruby Pumps!
This one definitely needs a top coat, because it dries matte. What I've noticed in reviews, people seem to either love or hate this one. I actually love it. It's a cheerful blue, with a unique micro glitter finish.
A little while ago, when I reviewed China Glaze Blue Iguana a few of were interested in how this compared to Blue Sparrow. Well, I have a comparison for you. :)
Both of these blues are practically the same shade wise. They are both bright/electric blues. The difference between this is the finish. Blue Sparrow has a micro-glitter finish. The glitter particles Blue Sparrow are very apparent. Blue Iguana on the other hand, is more of micro-shimmer maybe even glass-fleck. The shimmer-like particles in this are very tightly compacted giving Blue Iguana almost a metallic-like finish, unlike Blue Sparrow.
I know. These are two types of polishes where the lines can get blurred between micro-shimmer, micro-glitter, and glass fleck. They're definitely different finish wise, whether I have the terminology correct is a different story! I hope you can tell what I'm talking about by the photos! :P
