Swatch – China Glaze – Sacred Heart (1013/80843)

China Glaze is my absolute favourite nail polish brand, so this wasn’t going to be very long coming!

This shade has been slammed on a lot of blogs, but I guess it’s a Marmite sort of thing, and I love the stuff!

Here’s a quick snap from the train this morning :


This is 3 costs plus a top coat (which hasn’t changed much, it was already really shiny).

Sacred Heart is supposed to be a neon, but I don’t know why! It’s bright, but not that bright. It has a kind of glazed – almost jelly – look to it, so although it actually isn’t very opaque, it hides imperfections pretty well.

Application is great – the formula is neither too thick not too thin and it dries in average time- I did get a bubble though!Can you see it on my ring finger?

A lot of reviews that I have seen describe it as a congealed-blood colour, but I really see it as post-box red. Having said that, it is more rusty in the bottle, I’ll add a photo later.


Here’s a photo of the bottle, the colours are pretty accurate so I snapped my fingers with it so you can see the colour difference

Love it or hate it?
