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.
Like it's been said in other reviews. It's quite watery, but the end result once it dried was great and the colour is great.
I had been lusting after this polish for a couple weeks, and I finally decided to buy it. When I swatched it, however, I realized it has a pretty poor formula. You need to use really thick coats and only do THREE brush strokes, otherwise the polish drags a lot, leaving streaks and bald spots everywhere. It evens itself out by about the second or third coat, but then it also dries to a matte finish, like a neon. You need a good top coat to get this one glossy. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but I bought this because I thought it was supposed to be a lovely jelly. Despite the deep blue, "squishy" look, I couldn't really see my VNL at all, which was slightly disappointing.
The color is amazing, that's for sure, but the formula is very watery ;( It needs 3 coats to be completely opaque.
A Beautiful blue jelly. The perfect medium blue for summer. Lovely shine and depth that will leave you staring at it all day. Ride the waves is a day at the beach in a bottle.
