About China Glaze: China Glaze creates exciting, modern colors. They use China Clay as nail hardener resulting in long-lasting wear. Their non-thickening formula allow for excellent coverage. China Glaze has been featured in dozens of publications including Elle (with Kelly Clarkson), Lucky (with Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Nylon (with Avril Lavigne).
Application Instructions: For best results first apply a base coat to clean, bare nails. Then apply 2-3 coats of colored polish (depending on its consistency and thickness). For long lasting wear finish with a top coat.
This colour is opaque in 2-3 coats it builds up nicely. I do 2 coats and you can't see my nail line. Gorgeous neon pastel lime green. Love!
Oh, China Glaze. Your cremes come in such gorgeous colours but so far they all apply streaky and need like six coats to look decent. It's not you, it's me. At least I ASSUME it's me. The China Glaze cremes I've bought all got numerous glowing reviews talking about "opaque in two easy coats" blah blah blah. So maybe it's a body chemistry thing or maybe something about the way I apply polish just doesn't work with this particular brand. But yeah. Putting Be More Pacific on my toes was a waking nightmare that consumed an entire evening. I think I really did end up putting on six coats to make it properly opaque. And the end result was kinda lumpy because at one point I tried to touch up just the bald/streaky spots and the polish didn't self-level. It's a really pretty, unusual, creamy-neon-pistachio colour, so I'll keep it in my stash for those rare times when I don't mind devoting three hours to the application process. But I'm officially done buying China Glaze cremes. We just don't get along.
Pretty neon green!
For such a soft green colour, I was surprised to see how bright it is when on the nails. Even though it appears opaque and creamy, it requires 3 coats - even then, there is a slight bit of patchiness, so I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. Other than that, it is creamy and dries shiny, not matte like many other neons.
