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.
Here I am, about two years after I actually bought this polish, writing a review. I put it at the back of my stash and never really got around to using it but I recently rediscovered it. I love the way this looks over a pinkish nude beige. And here's a step that is a workaround for the fact that it is sometimes a little haphazard in getting the white hexagons out of the bottle and on to your brush: I pour a little bit of the nail polish on to a non-stick surface such as a hard plastic sheet ... something you might use for a book report cover. Pour out a little and then you can strategically pick up the white hexagons as well as the black bars and dots as you wish. That will help you place the designs where you want. But you don't want to place them too precisely because part of the beauty of this is the element of randomness to the design. I then top with a good top coat. I love this and I'm going to continue to use it probably more often than most of the other toppers I have. I highly recommend.
Love the uniqueness about this polish. Like the reviews have expressed, it's difficult to work with; but well worth it! I'm give it five stars for the ingenuity aspect. :)
Awkward and lumpy. :(
J'adore le résultat final! Mais c'est très pénible à appliquer, il faut en mettre épais pour avoir des paillettes, ce qui fait épais sur l'ongle, donc le vernis casse et ne tient pas tellement longtemps. Mais par contre, j'ai eu de nombreux compliments!
