China Glaze Recycle - swatches and review

Today I'm wearing a golden oldie in form of the beautiful medium grey Recycle!
I've made a small butterfly in silver to spice things up a bit ;)

It dries a tiny bit darker than the polish in the bottle
In artificial light

The butterfly is made with Konad plate m41 and Depend #223
In halogen light
Full hand in halogen light

Type of polish: Cream.

Colour: A medium grey. It reminds me of storm clouds or thunder clouds :)

Collection: China Glaze Ecollection Spring 2008.

Opacity: Great! This is two fairly thick coats. ;)

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Good! Maybe a bit thin, but not runny. Apply with few and light strokes to avoid bald spots on first coat. Second coat applied much better.

Brush: Rather thin, but still not too hard to work with.

Shine: Very shiny on its own, but I have one coat of Seche Vite in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate. Best picture is the nail colour in the bottle picture. The halogen light pictures are a bit too blue looking.

: 5/5 :D

This is an awsome shade of grey that goes to all outfits and to all occations! It's not boring at all even though it's a grey! I chose it because I'm going to my aunts funeral tomorrow :( and I wanted a classy but not too cheerful look.

Do you have Recycle in your collection?
What do you think of it?


  1. Vilket himla fint lack! Kanske skaffar det själv, behöver mer grått inser jag. Och accentnageln med fjärilen gillade jag speciellt mycket, hur snyggt som helst helt enkelt.

    1. Tack! :D Jag gillar det jättemycket! Perfekt ensamt och perfekt bas till nail art me! ;)
      Fjärilen var ju löjligt enkel att stämpla dit, men ibland är det enklaste det vackraste ;)

  2. I love the accent nail with the butterfly! I love that it's silver on gray!

    1. Oh thanks! :D
      I wanted a to keep it low key this time and silver and grey are pretty close :)

  3. P E R F E K T A!!! precis lagom å fjärilen är pricken över i:et ♥Recycle hör nog till mina top 10 ツ

    1. Ja, kanske på min top 10 me ;)
      Om det inte varit för dig så hade jag inte köpt den! Men när jag såg den på dig så föll jag som en fura!!!
      A must have!!! :D
      Fjärilen e inte för cheerful för begravning då...? :/

    2. Hell no! Den är ju diskret ju. Xoxo

    3. Ok tack! <3
      Kändes helt ok idag med denna mani faktiskt.

  4. Very nice shade!I Love dark grey!

  5. that butterfly adds a nice touch!
