ABC Challenge I is for Igniting Love

Hi lovelies! Hope you are all having a wonderful day so far! Today me and all the other wonderful ladies participating in the ABC Challenge are back with the letter I (I can't even believe we're already this far!) :) :)  Today I have China Glaze Igniting Love which is a beautiful red crelly from the Cirque du Soleil collection that came out earlier this year. I'm not usually one for reds but to me this was wonderful. Its red enough to be considered a red but it has some orange and pink tones to make it less harsh. Right up my alley.
This was three cots of Igniting Love since I still had some VNL (visible nail line) at two coats, which I thought was kind of weird. But it was totally worth it. This is beautiful. And I think it works well at any time of year. The formula was a joy to work with- slightly thin but self-leveling in true China Glaze form. 

This was super shiny without topcoat which I loved. Really glad I picked this up (on clearance!) :) 

Be sure to check out all the other lovely polish addicts!!

PS Sorry this is so late! Finals are coming up and they are kicking my butt! :( 


  1. Just finished my finals last week, so I can sympathize.
    I think I liked every color in this collection - unusual for me. Haven't tried this one yet, nut judging from your photos, I probably should!

  2. Wow, this is so glossy! I can definitely tell it's a jelly, and I adore jellies!

  3. Hi, Elle! I ordinarily steer clear of reds, and didn't bother picking this one up when it came out recently. Now? I wish I had. That's an unusually soft red. It works beautifully with your skin tone. Great job, darlin'!

    Good luck with the exams!!!!


  4. this is so pretty and shiny!! I can't believe I passed this up. Now I'm going to have to hunt it down!!

  5. Why did I not grab this??? I love this color and the fact that it's a jelly is a huge bonus!

  6. Oh wow look at how shiny that is! I really liked the Cirque du soleil collection but I didnt pick this one up :( I'm definitely going to when I see it in stores though!

  7. Wow, what a gorgeous red! It looks stunning on you too! Great pick! Yay for clearances..! ;)

  8. This is pretty and I like that its not red red, if ya k is what I mean! So glad I'm not in school anymore, although I am a little jealous of spring and reading break!!


I would love to hear what you think! <3
