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.
Yeah, it's sheer, but not bad at all! I used three coats. I liked the formula because it spreads out beautifully, so it's sheer coverage doesn't bother me one bit. It's a billable coverage. I found that the formula made it easier for me to work with, actually. It was opaque for me in two coats, but because it dried SO quickly, I threw on a third for good measure. It's so pretty. I'm happy that trying something new from plain old black didn't disappoint. I am hard on my hands and fingernails, and managed to chip the finish on a couple nails so soon, but this rapid dry and wide-spread polish is so easy to apply repairs, it's neat!
I saw the colour swatches and was super excited about the colour. It took about 4 coats to get it dark enough. It is not a full coverage colour
I quite like this polish but it is a bit too sheer. you must use 3-4 coats of the polish for full opacity. Adding a black base would make this polish pop a bit more.
It's a little too sheer that I have to apply 3 or more coats to get opacity. I usually have to put on a base coat of black but it is a lovely colour with red glitter. Gorgeous when it catches the light.
