Hi Peeps! Finally today I have the 2nd half of the China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection!
Click here to read Part 1!
Previously I have called the 2nd half of the collection coarse shimmers and that was before I swatched them. Now I would say they are more foil-like.
First Up: China Glaze Goldie But Goodie
China Glaze Goldie But Goodie is a rust-gold shimmer polish as described by China Glaze, and I think the main reason for that is because even though the polish looked gold, it's actually majority gold shimmers with some copper and silver shimmers.
Again, these polishes are actually what I have in mind when you say shimmers. I think the formula is closer to being foil. Goldie But Goodie is rather opaque, you can get away with a careful one coat, but I did 2 anyway.

It's really hard to take a macro shot of the polish so sorry for it being so blur at the sides. But I think we can see what is in the polish like this! :)
Next, China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets
China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets is a platinum silver shimmer polish with some bigger gold shimmer flakes.
China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets is a lot like an inverted version of Goldie But Goodie. Polish is opaque as well, with a foil like formula.
It's actually quite gorgeous! A little something different from your normal silver foils.
China Glaze Rendezvous With You
China Glaze Rendezvous With You is the most interesting shade for me in this half of the collection! Rendezvous With You is a deep plum purple shimmer polish over a very dark base. I cant tell if it's black or a really really near black purple.
It's kinda hard to photograph this polish for me because when I put up my light, the sides go black. It's a little like duo-chrome.
From here you can see clearly the purple shimmers with dark base. There's some silver shimmers in it as well.
I think this polish is the most must-get from this half of the collection!
Next, China Glaze Strike Up a Cosmo
China Glaze Strike Up a Cosmo is a rose-gold shimmer polish with some gold-copper larger flakes.
This polish keeps making me think Raspberry.. I have no idea why. haha.
Again, I think the formula is close to being foil, and it's opaque, easy to apply. Why do they say everything is shimmer?

This photo shows more of the base. I think this polish is worth getting as well.
China Glaze Charmed, I’m Sure
China Glaze Charmed, I’m Sure is one of the only two cremes in the collection. It's a deep eggplant creme polish.. Not a colour I usually wear but I do think it's gorgeous.
Application is completely smooth for me. I didnt have the usual problem of cremes being too thick.. Very easy to control!
Last but not least, China Glaze Queen B
China Glaze Queen B is a blue-purple creme polish from the collection. Actual colour is slightly more purple in real life but it's really close already.
Under direct light. I couldnt capture the right colour on my camera so I wore it to office and used the camera at work to take these photos. haha!
Overall, some of the opinions I have heard about this collection is that the fall colours are usually pretty much the same and a lot of you probably have them.
Well, if you dont have them, this might be a good time to get them. And in my opinion, they are not really shimmers and China Glaze did try to jazz them up abit especially for the foil like polishes. China Glaze Rendezvous With You is a must get for me definitely!
