Swatch // China Glaze Combat Blue-ts From the 2016 Rebel Collection

China Glaze Combat Blue-ts From the 2016 Rebel Collection

So first off it took me way too long to realize that the name of this polish is supposed to reference combat BOOTS. Like, a horrifically long time to realize that. I thought it was weirdly called "Blue Tees," like t-shirts. Hahaha... Ohhh Katherine...

Anyway, today I'm sharing swatches of my favourite shade from the 2016 China Glaze Rebel Collection: Combat Blue-ts!

There is almost nothing I love more in the nail polish world than a good matte velvet polish, so the minute I saw swatches of Combat Blue-ts I knew I needed to have it!

The polish is a deep navy blue matte velvet with a hint of shimmer, and it took two coats to build up to full opacity.

Since it's matte and dries really quickly you have to be careful with your brush strokes, so I did my second coat a bit thicker and made sure to smooth it all down when it was wet so it would dry well. It dried really fast and I had zero issues with the colour bleeding when I painted it on. :) It really dries like a dream.

And just for fun I did a swatch with some glossy top coat on it, too:

I really think this is a polish I prefer matte, but the glossy does let some of that shimmer show through. I really wish I'd thought to take a macro of it with glossy top coat as I'm sure it would have been stunning, but oh well. :) Live and learn!

What do you think, do you prefer this one glossy or matte? Also am I the only one confused by the name? Haha.....

Thanks for visiting! xx

  3. Haha, you're too cute!!

    China Glaze really killed it with their Rebel Collection for fall, and this is definitely one of my favorites. I think I prefer it matte to shiny as well, although it is pretty either way.
