A Lovely Legend: China Glaze Atlantis

Hey everybody!  S-C-R-A-T-C-H...did you just hear that?  That was the sound of a polish being officially marked off my wishlist as being MINE now. :)  China Glaze Atlantis is a polish that has captivated me for a while, mainly because it goes along with the mermaid/fantasty/oceanic/teal/whatever theme that I just love.



Can you see why Atlantis disappeared?  There was too much awesomeness going on, and the whole city had to go into hiding for fear that the swells of humanity would descend upon its borders to soak up all the awesome.


Atlantis is a "specialty shade" from 2009...I love the fact that, like the city of Atlantis, this glittering relic disappeared, and now you have to go hunt for it! :)


Atlantis is a light teal jelly, and it's absolutely packed with the most delicious holographic glitter you ever saw.  I used two coats but probably could have used three to help with the visible nail line, but you can hardly see it in real life.  It dries pretty gritty, so you do need a thick coat (or two) of top coat.

DO NOT ADJUST YOUR MONITOR...

What do you think of Atlantis?  I found this not-so-sea-logged treasure on Amazon.  It really isn't even that difficult to find.  So...just take that as your orders to go look this one up if you haven't already!!


Atlantis is a true "mermaid" polish without the mermaid moniker.  All this look needs to be complete is Sebastian the crab.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)

  4. Whoa. This is amazing, like I don't even know how. It looks like Doarkling Gatbage but MOAR awesome. Congrats for scratching a lemming off the ol' list. I'm carefully watching my #1 on eBay off a tip from Addicted To OPI-yum...

    1. Ahhh, that must be the fabled Turquoise Opal? :) Good luck! And AACCCKKK...how did you know that Doarkling Gatbage was my #1 most sought-after polish???!!! I'll NEVER find that one!! :P Just messin' with you sweets!! <3 I may do a comparison with Sparkling Garbage...it's the same idea, but the color is different.

  7. I love this polish... bought it back in 2009... very different from Sparkling Garbage, another lovely. I made a mermaid-type polish inspired by the colors of sea glass... we just might make it part of a collection in 2014-- a mermaid collection...
