Review for: Other more...
I picked this up at Ulta because I had heard good things and knew the brand was cruelty free, plus I was on the hunt for a nice glossy black. I bought the shade Liquid Leather. My review is based solely on my use of this shade. I did not like it enough to try more.

First of all: the smell. It didn't just smell like your typical cheap nail polish. It had a smell that almost reminded me of mildew; strangely earthy. I ended up getting a headache about 5 minutes after applying from the scent. I am used to 5-free and 7-free formulas, which apparently have a much lower smell.
It was also very thick and "gloopy". I wiped away excess before applying and it still completely filled up my nail beds when I got the sides of my nails. I found that this thickness didn't give the sleek look I was wanting.

It took a long time to dry, which doesn't make it terrible or anything. I just prefer to be able to use my hands within ten minutes of applying. I ended up jacking up the polish on a few of my nails really bad because it wasn't dry yet, so I just took it off. Unfortunately,  that means I cannot comment on chipping.
It did give full coverage in one coat, which is cool. I was planning on having this applied by a nail tech when I get acrylics in the future. They will likely have an easier time working with it than I did.

China Glaze is affordable and one of the better affordable polishes, but it is noticeable that it is not as good as the more expensive brands (like OPI). However, the color selection is unmatched. The crackles actually work well, the glow in the dark nail polish is wonderful and actually glows. My only issue is with lighter colors it seems like it takes a lot of coats to get a good level of opacity.

I have to be completely honest I used to get my nails done at the nail salon and I would do my toes the matching color but in regular polish. Many times my toe nail polish would chip and I would go to my local drugstore to find a color that matched the one I had on and I would ALWAYS buy China Glaze polishes just because of how affordable they are and I was surprised to see how well they hold up. I love this polish and would recommend it to anyone!

I am not the biggest fan of regular nail polish because I don't think it stays on very long and as soon as one nail chips, the whole mani/pedi looks awful. China Glaze is more affordable than brands like essie or OPI but I still don't think it's very long wear like acrylic or gel.

I love anything that shimmers it glitters, so Fairy Dust from China Glaze is a must have in my polish arsenal. It takes any many to the next step with a beautiful delicate sparkle. You can use one thin coat for a hint of magic or two or three coats to really make it sparkle!

This is a review for Red Pearl! One of my favorite red nail polishes! This color is more of a bright red with glossy sparkly touch to it. It is smooth to apply on nails, brush is easy to use. It is a beautiful red, not too dark and not extremely light either. It always lasted me about 2 weeks when I take care of my nails. You need this type of red polish in your collection! I love this color, if you like the shiny red kind of nail polish then pick this up! I love China Glaze! #chinaglaze

China glaze used to be my favorite nail polish company of all time but I’ve noticed that their nail polish chips a lot easier than any other brand. However, they do have a great range of colors and they really specialize in neon colors which other brands don’t.

This is probably one of the better brand of nail polish I’ve tried. The colors are pretty, especially the ones with a hint of glitter in them. This brand tends to hold up better to chipping, but I’m the type that is hard on a manicure.

I really like China Glaze polish on my natural nails. I think the formula wears well with minimal chipping. I can go 3-4 weeks between pedicures. I have an assortment of China Glaze colors and it’s one of my favorite polish brands.

China Glaze is my go to polish. Goes on smooth. Easy to fix any mistakes without causing more of a mess. The colors are true to what you see without having to put 35 coats on. The colors are endless, they even have special edition colors through out the year. Brush size is perfect. Polish doesn't chip or peel.
