China Glaze Riveter Rouge

Last week, I finally managed to get my hands on two of the polishes from the China Glaze's fall collection, Vintage Vixen! While I still don't have any money, my mom was very gracious and bought me Riveter Rouge and Midnight Mission. Today, I decided on wearing Riveter Rouge - and while I'm still wearing the Nailene nails* from yesterday (with the design filed off), I cut and filed them down a bit because I just can't stand having my nails that long. It makes me feel like I can't do anything. :) Anyway, on to the polish! This was two easy coats with top coat, and I added a sticker* from Nailene Bedazzle pack.

I love this polish! It's a gorgeous rusty red with red and gold microglitter, and applies very easily, becoming opaque in two thin coats. The most accurate of my photos is the last, but they all look fairly close to what the polish looks like in various lighting. I also have a soft spot for Riveter Rouge because I've always loved Rosie the Riveter, and I can definitely see this being a "vintage" polish. Now I'm wishing it was fall, but if it was I wouldn't have these pictures to show you:

These are from a big pot of petunias outside my house. I love petunias and just thought I'd share them with you. Have a great Monday!

  1. I bought this one too, and LOVE it! :-) It looks great on you. :-)

    Thank you soooo much for the award!! It's my first one, and I really appreciate it. I'm getting ready to send it to others and post about it. :-)

  2. nice colour, I haven't seen the new collection out yet (Haven't been to a Sally's in a while) but the red really looks nice with your skin tone. I wanna try brown and shimmer shades of this collection.

  3. Awwww... you filed the design off! Maybe I'm just not used to your press on nails but I think I like your natural ones better. :D Fun while it lasts, though! That red looks so good. But I've seen it in person and it doesn't look good on me. So I'm glad it works for you!! I CANNOT wait to see Midnight Mission on you - I haven't gotten mine out yet.

    Miss Zara, have you gotten something from me in the mail yet? It's been a while. : /

  4. I have this in the untrieds and am excited to use it!

  5. this is the one I want from the Vintage Vixen collection! So pretty and sparkly

  6. Ali's Nail News- Thanks, and I'm glad you like Riveter Rouge! Oh, and you're very welcome for the award. :)

    Danielle- Thanks! I hope you get to pick some of the VVs up soon.

    Miss Bun- I actually like my natural nails better, too - I just want to wait as long as possible before taking these off, because I hate the whole process. I will probably be wearing Midnight Mission tomorrow, so you won't have to wait long for that! And sadly I have not received my package from you...I really don't know how long it normally takes for a package to get from Hong Kong to Missouri, but I'm hoping it will arrive soon.

    Aurora's Nails- Haha, thanks!

    Freshie- You should be! LOL

    AggiePigeon- I know; I don't have anything quite like it! I love those sparkly reds. :)

  7. I love this color on you and the sticker is just the right accent. Huzzah!

  8. Oh how beautiful....again it makes me think of raspberry preservatives....YUMMY....ha ha ha

    I can't stand long nails either...totally in my way...and I always seem to scratch myself somewhere if they are long...shorter nails YEAH!!

    Nice job as always. I hope you're Tuesday will be awesome Zara.

    PS. Beautiful Petunias...we have a lot of them in our yard in Sweden as well.


  9. You make me want every color you post!!
    gorgeous color, looks great on you.
    I want a bouquet of those flowers in my room!


  10. I don't have any ChG... Maybe it's time to change this :D
    Join my giveaway :)

  11. The red really is beautiful!

    I have a red polish in my room right now. But it's such an icky neon color when I put it on. It hurts to look at. :/
    But, I love this one. And that star on one finger is too cute!

    Best wishes from one blogger to another,


  12. Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes- Thanks! I love those stickers. :)

    Inga- Now I want raspberry preserves...yum. :D Haha, I always scratch myself somewhere with long nails, too; I just can't handle it! And my Tuesday is going great so far. :)

    Alexisaurus- I apologize to your wallet! But I'm glad you like the colors I wear. :) And if I could send you a bouquet of the petunias and not have them be disgusting by the time they got to you, I would. :) Thanks for commenting!

    Orlica- I would say that should definitely change! And I will check out your challenge.

    Zabrinah- Thanks, I think so too! I'm not sure how I would feel about a neon

  13. I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be working
    with? I'm experiencing some minor security issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?
