China Glaze polish - Second Hand Silk

I got this in a recent China Glaze haul, I must admit, I think China Glaze are my favourite polishes, they just do some of the best shades and the quality is really good too.
I absolutely adore pinks, my real weakness is the blue-toned pinks, I love them. The blue tone stops them looking too sickly, as some pinks can.

I have two China Glaze blue-toned pinks, this and Pink Underground, which I swatched here and Konaded here.
Second hand silk is very similar in tone, but is a few shades lighter than Pink Underground, with a slightly creamier look, Pink Underground has a blue shimmer that is obvious in the bottle but not so much on the nail, Second Hand Silk is a definite creme. Both are in my top pinks, love them.

It was a lovely formula and applied wonderfully, very smooth and not too thick, opaque in two coats.

I just love this one so much, I also put it on my toes and it looks great on both fingers and toes, loving China Glaze!!!

I don't get the blue, I must admit. Very pretty and you do such a professional job with your nail preparation and your photography that every darned thing looks good on your blog.

jaljen: I think by blue I really meant its a cool pink, not a sickly sugary pink, but cool toned. Pink underground does have blue in it though, but this is a similar cool tone :o)
Thank you for you lovely comments on the pics, I must get a decent camera, I am just using my compact one, but it does the job ;o)
