China Glaze Bohemian Luster Chrome swatches

Today I'm showing you swatches of 5 of the 6 colors from China Glaze Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection 212, only Swanky Silk is missing.
As much as I love China Glaze, my favorite brand, I have to say that this collection is not quite as impressive as I thought it would be, I find that the duochrome effect is too weak in most of the colors. 
I dag vil jeg vise jer swatches af 5 af de 6 farver i China Glaze Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection 212, Swanky Silk er den eneste, der mangler.
Selvom jeg elsker China Glaze overalt, må jeg indrømme at denne kollektion efter min mening falder lidt igennem,  jeg synes ganske enkelt ikke den duochrome effekt er ret god i de fleste af farverne.
Deviantly Daring a dark teal/turquoise shifting to golden green - but mostly in artificial light
Rare & Radiant is shifting from gold to green - a Chanel Peridot dupe
Unpredictable is a golden green shifting to teal
I Want My Bawdy is a dark blue only shifting within a little lighter/darker, but beautiful nonetheless
No Plain Jane is a dusty purple shifting to a dusty brownish bronze

  1. I am picking up 4 of them today (my friend grabbed them for me). I passed on I Want My Bawdy (the worst name EVER!) and Rare And Radiant. I was going to pass on them all (HA like that would happen) but then I saw someone on MUA stamp with them over black... well I was sold! Also you have The. Best. Swatch. of No Plain Jane. Thank you!

    1. Hahah, I know that pre-release comment far too well: I'm not getting any from this collection - and as soon as swatces are release, well, then the tune sounds quite differently LOL
      Thanks a lot Karen!

  2. Great swatches! I agree with Karen, I was going to pass on them all because I feel like I've seen them before but when I saw the stamping with them on MUA, my mind has been changed! They looked amazing!

  5. Jeg har også hørt en del dårligt om den her kollektion. Farverne i sig selv er ret flotte, men duo effekten er lidt fesen.. Synes dog alligevel at Unpredictable er fantastisk, og jeg er ret sikker på, at det er en dupe til Sephora's Moody Woman (og måske også H&M's Lady Luck)

    1. Jeg har tilfældigvis en swatchs stick med H%M Lady Luck, og den er lidt grønnere og knap så duochrome som Unpredictable...

    1. Saving money is a good feeling, not very common when it comes to polishes LOL, thanks Polish AMOR :)

  10. This collection seems mixed on how duochrome they are. Still, they are all pretty colors, even without the duochrome. :-)

  18. agree, unpredictable doesn't look bad, Rare & Radian i don't need because i have catrice's dupe of chanel's peridot... the rest of this collection doesn't show any of duochrome effect... i expected more from this collection, but now i can skip it with peace in my heart ;-D

  19. Aw I saw swatches of these on another blog and she thought the same thing. They're really pretty, but lack the duochrome-ness lol.

    1. Yes, unfortunately, and it's rather important in a duochrome LOL - but petty colors nonetheless...

  20. Ihh jeg vil egentlig gerne eje rare and radiant og no plane jane. Men alle rewievs jeg har læst siger mig at jeg skal finde nogle andre :-/

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. Hvis du i forvejen ikke har en Peridot dupe, så bør du købe Radiant, eller en anden dupe. No Plain jane er jeg nu selv rigtigt glad for :)
