Review: I own a plethora of China Glaze nail polishes and I find that each of them have there own personality. Each one has a different finish, color pay off, and look. This one that I am reviewing is more of a creamy finish. The look is of an army creamy green that takes about 2 coats to become opaque. I did not do a base coat but I am sure if you did either ridge filler or a base coat you can achieve color pay off in 1 coat. I do feel that you need a topcoat to seal in the color and help it become chip resistant. The topcoat that I used was Butter London, Which is a really good topcoat. I also found that the formula could be a bit runny at first. Some times this happens when the polish is new you need to use it a few times to get some air into it to thicken it up a bit. I also found that it did not stain my nails or turn them yellow especially with not having a base coat underneath.
Overall: I love this color. It is a really nice green that you can wear all year around on hands or toes. I love the creaminess of the color. Just make sure you seal it with a good topcoat to keep it looking fresh.
