Collection: China Glaze 2014 Summer, Off Shore
In anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, March 17, here is a very fun springy green from China Glaze!
Shore Enuff is a fabulous praying mantis green (don’t click if you’re not into bugs!!). It’s a pastel-ish cream, and unfortunately that tends to mean that it can be tricky to apply. I did three coats for the swatch, but ideally I’d use four to really get all the minor patchiness out. Par for the course with light pastels, in my experience.
I totally love this, though, despite its slightly annoying application. It is the kind of color a superhero would wear. Or, perhaps, a supervillain. It’s maybe a bit too bright and pastel for a shamrock green, but I think it would definitely do for St. Patrick’s Day!
China Glaze Nail Lacquer retails for US$7.50 and is 0.5 US fl oz / 14 mL. China Glaze nail polishes are free of toluene, added formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and are made in the USA.
China Glaze is part of American International Industries (who also own brands like Seche, EzFlow and Ardell), a private company based in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
[Not that you would mix them up, but I found this in my Googling and thought it was amusing: China Glaze is not to be confused with a Taiwanese company (China Glaze Group, who manufacture ceramic glaze for building materials!), and AII is not to be confused with an American holding company based in Texas (American International Industries, Inc.).]
