ChG Blk-Bila-Bong

Here's one from the vaults... ChG Blk-Bila-Bong!  It is from the 2007 Surf Summer collection from China Glaze, and is not b3f.  It is a lovely teal blue microglitter / shimmer / micro glass fleck in a sheer black base that allows the glitter to shine through.  Although the lid was on very tight, it has evaporated a bit over the years - as many of my China Glaze's have - but the consistency was still nice and it is so smooth to apply.  It was so easy to control (look at that gap! ...no clean up...) and built nicely in opacity after starting slightly sheer at one coat.  The smell of it gives away the chemicals, as it is not big-3-free, but I don't mind, and actually have a soft spot for all the chemically goodness and the ease of application that comes with most of them.  The blue shimmer / micro glitter is visible in all lighting, but it really shines in direct sunlight.  In low / indirect light it is still teal blue, just very dark and vampy.  This is a lovely color - similar in idea and execution to the also long d/c'd Creative Blue Blood.  This one is still available for a reasonable price on eBay, so if you are wanting this one it shouldn't be too hard to obtain.  Enjoy -     >^..^<
