China Glaze: Wizard of Ooh Ahz (Again)

Yesterday I mentioned that I had re-swatched a bunch of China Glaze collections. The Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection was one I mentioned. Then I remembered I'd never posted the swatches!

The Wizard of Ooh Ahz was one of the first full collections I bought. I was drawn in by the glitter and Wizard of Oz theme.

The Ten Man

Cowardly Lyin'

Good Witch


Dorothy Who

Ruby Pumps
 And even though it's not part of the 6 piece collection....

Here's Emerald Sparkle.

Emerald Sparkle
I've promised the girls in my class (all 10 of them, yeah I have more boys than girls) that I'll paint their nails on the last day of term. We are having a fairy tale themed day to end our narrative writing unit. I plan on wearing a princess dress...
Anyway I wanted to take a set of polishes, something with glitter, that looked princesses polish... (my class have taken to guessing which princess my polish is inspired by).
I think these polishes will be perfect!


  1. Your class will love the sparkle from this collection! I was going to do this with my Sunday School class but then thought I better get parents OK first. I had a huge # of parents who said no (gals as well as boys)...I even had the kid safe water based polish. They would come home with more glue and glitter all over them from crafts anyway! I settled and put little stickers on their nails. This was a great collection...glad a # of 'em are on the classic wall for ChG. I think there might be a mass hysteria if ChG ever took out Ruby Pumps from the classic wall!

    1. Do tell us when you do this what the 'hit' color was with the gals. My guess is most will pick Good Witch - but maybe not with the bottle appeal of Dorthy Who.

    2. Knowiny my girls they'll decide based on their favourite Princess!

  2. What a lovely idea, I bet your class will love these colours!
    Oh Emerald Sparkle, I need you in my life. It's one of those colours I put off buying for no apparent reason and now it's too late :(

    1. Emerald Sparkle is very pretty. I didn't know it wasn't available now. Can you not get it on ebay?
