China Glaze Nail Lacquers in Wood You Wanna? and Take A Trek

These are from my Arlington, VA haul. 

Wood You Wanna? 

This is from Fall 2015’s “The Great Outdoors” collection.



Wood You Wanna? is one of those “blogger headache” shades because it’s so goshdarned difficult to describe. It’s a smokey bronze with very slight red tone and an almost foil effect. I would say this is a metallic. The mix of brown with red almost made me think this has a purple tint to it. It applied nicely in two coats.  It was nearly opaque with just one coat. Impressive!

Take A Trek

This is from 2013’s “The Hologram Collection”.



Capturing this one was really tricky. For one thing, it’s a softer blue on my nails than it is on other bloggers who have lighter complexions. For another, the precise shade of blue is difficult to capture on my camera because it’s a very specific shade of stormy blue mixed with steel gray. This color mellows out into more of a cornflower blue on me. If you look closely, you can see the holo shimmer. It’s very faint and minute.

To further explain what I mean, here it is on The Swatchaholic:


It’s close, but it doesn’t look the way it does in the bottle on me.

  1. Oh! Wood You Wanna is perfect! Take a Trek does look different on you than it does in the other swatch. Still pretty though.
