China Glaze Let's Groove

China Glaze Let's Groove is from the fall 2009 Retro Diva collection and it was the only non brown based/poopy color in that range. I have been wearing for quite a few times (beside OPI done out in deco this is another polish that I have worn for more than 3 times) since I have gotten it 5 months ago but I never got a chance to take a good picture because on those days, it was either very cloudy (bad lighting), very cold (my hands were dried out and looked purple) or I was too busy...Anyway, purple is still a popular color (not as hot as coral though) so it's not too late to wear it.
Let's Groove is a deep shimmering purple that looks more like wine with sunlight. The tiny blue and red shimmer is fine and the formula is very user friendly, like most of China Glaze I have tried (well, everything is a dream to apply after having tried Maybelline...) and the formula is pigmented enought that I only need 2 coats to get that even and shiny finish.
I love about the fact that the color (although quite deep) doesn't shrink the size of my nailbeds. Go china glaze!

P.S. I thought it looks pretty similar (if not pratically identical) to NARS purple rain and/or Illamasqua Baptiste...

  2. Wow when I saw this I immediately thought Purple Rain! This looks prettier than All Lacquered Up's swatch! Does it look too dark indoors?

    I think it's cute for spring as well...it kind of matches the fuchsia lips trend.

    I think purple is relativly hussle-free shade for many skintone, unlike gray, green and other neon colors.

    It looks dark purple indoor, not so dark that it looks black though...

    Actually I have yet to use a China Glaze that doesn't wear well...it'sa great bang for the buck especially when they go on buy-2-get-2 sale in ulta.

    She does have some really nice pictures and clear swatches...I just wish she can turn that music off (it's so annoying because I usually have my own music on when I am at the computer)...Do people realize that even among makeup junkies, girls have different tastes in music?
