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.
The colour is amazing over white but it is quite streaky. I'd recommend putting a drop on the brush and trying to spread it without dragging the brush too much. It should give a smoother result.
I bought this polish after lots of research, so I knew that the polish was going to be sheer. And it definitely is! After 4 coats of medium size, it is still very very see-through. However, even with medium coats, it dries down fairly quickly, so if you don't mind doing a few extra, this polish is a very spring-y jelly. The wear-time was average for China Glaze, 3 days without top coat/basecoat/sealing the edge of the nail. I also like wearing this polish with a matte topcoat on, giving my nails a translucent effect. This of course would look better on short nails with minimal outgrowth.
This is a fabulous shade but it takes many coats (at least 5) to get any kind of real colour.
This polish went on smoothly and is a lovely colour but after 5 coats it was still far from being opaque.
