Skyscraper was released as part of China Glaze's Metro collection for fall of 2011. I resisted this polish at first. "Another blue glitter," I said. "I have Dorothy Who?" I said. "I have Absolutely Alice," I said. And as so often happens, resistance turned out to be futile because this baby is really nothing like any of those.
I guess I would call Skyscraper indigo. It isn't navy. It isn't royal. It's not purple. I've read that indigo is no longer considered a separate part of the spectrum by modern color scientists. I guess it's an orphan like Pluto now.
I'm still going to call this indigo. So Skyscraper is an indigo jelly that is positively PACKED with silver glitter. I cannot believe how sparkly this is.
The formula is pretty standard for China Glaze glitters. It was a tad on the thick side, but a couple of drops of thinner fixed it right up. I didn't even try it with just a coat of top coat to test if it's a hungry glitter or not - my assumption is that anything this sparkly will eat top coat, so what you see here is 2 coats of polish topped with one coat of Gelous and one coat of Pro FX quick dry. It's completely smooth and shiny.
I am so glad that I acquired this polish. It's completely stunning. No regrets whatsoever!
Hope this Tuesday finds you all well. Thanks for stopping by!
