Chips too quick even with a base and top coat
I really love the shades a hues of China Glaze's collection, and I really want to like them, but after numerous times of wearing them (with a base and top coat) this stuff chips the next day. I don't even do much with my hands for it to happen. I've heard a lot of my friends saying the same thing, so I know I'm not the only one. I would buy this nail polish if it didn't chip so much,
Love this color
China Glaze seems to be a reallly good nail polish. I only have 1 bottle, but the texture gives really good covering, you only need like 1 or 2 layers and the color looks awesome. They have a lot of pretty colors and their orange/yellow shades seem to be really good without being nasty. I tried other colors for my toes at the salon, and they look pretty!
I love China Glaze. It goes on smooth and always looks great! I really like how they came out with the Ombré kits! It doubled my China Glaze collection. (:
Love These Polishes.. but only some of the time
I'm going to review them shade by shade since I have a lot of different ones:
181 Caribbean Temptation: I'm not really into shimmery nail polishes, but this one has a really cool dark purplish blue undertone to it. I don't think I would wear it at this point right now on my nails though.
182 Ruby Pumps: I absolutely love this sparkly red color. it is great for the holidays around Christmas.
202 Innocence: This light pink color is great for french nails or if you want to do designs on top.
544 Liquid Leather: Just a dark solid black. Goes on in about 2 coats, I used it all the time even for smaller designs with a tiny brush. Only bad thing is that it sometime runs after you place the top coat on the small designs.
625 For Audrey: very pretty darker sky blue. Can be streaky, but i think this is because i had bought this one at sallys. (something i noticed- when i buy these polishes from sallys, they're a little more watery or old. must be why they are so cheap, but sometimes the polishes are fine)
867 Re-fresh Mint: this color is a very very light mint/turquoise color. i like the color more in the bottle then i do on my nails. i think this might only be because i havent found the right colors to pair it with.
870 Happy Go Lucky: a very bright yellow, i wish it was just a little lighter and brighter. it sometimes can come out way too yellowy. sometimes stains nails if you do not use a base coat.
873 Flip Flop Fantasy: I am in love with this color and can never find anything like it. If you keep your hands in the sun a lot or go tanning in a tanning bed the color actually turns to a lighter version of this color. i know its kind of weird or gross, but the color is pretty faded too. definitely recommend this color for spring and summer.
934 Swing Baby: a very pretty metal-ly color. Kind of has a bronze/brown tint to it. very hard to match, but looks great with black in the winter time.
960 Papaya Punch: love this for summer, the name is so cute too. I only wish it was a little bit lighter of an orange.
1008 Purple Panic (neon): a neon pinkish purple. very very bright and daring.
1015 Celtic Sun: definitely as neon as it gets. such a great color, but as i said about one of the colors before, i bought this one as sallys and its extremely streaky and hard to get the solid color.
1063 Ultamate Holiday: such a gorgeous glitter nail polish with rainbow accents. only issue is that one it dries, even with a great top coat, the polish is very sandpaper like.
1198 Running in Circles: a glittery green, amazing for the holidays. would look great with ruby pumps for christmas!
overall i love china glaze polishes. there are so many amazing colors to choose from. although some do come out streaky, the color barely chips with a great top coat.

pool party and flying dragon are my fav. china glaze nail polish is the best for marbeling other wise they are very light and require 3 coats.
Flying Dragon: purple and it has sparkles in it
Pool Party: a hotish pink
all worth the money
Who couldn't like this line of nail polish? At a great price it gives you an excellent manicure, with an awesome shine. I don't need to use a top coat with a lot of these colors becauase of the natural shine that comes with them already. I work with dogs and my hands are constantly in water and this brand seems to hold very well considering. I can go quite a while without my nails chipping. It's a very dependable brand and I will continue to buy new colors from them.
Fantastic color choices, easy to apply, and love that it has built in nail hardeners. Most colours go on easy with two coats. I have about 5 or 6 CG and I will def buy more in the future.
