China Glaze Nail Lacquer in New Birth (The Giver)

China Glaze — New Birth (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: China Glaze 2014 Fall, The Giver (movie tie-in)

I received my first Topbox this month, and it included a full-sized China Glaze nail polish from last fall’s The Giver collection, which is a tie-in with the movie of the same name. I haven’t seen the movie nor read the book it’s based on, so I’m quite unfamiliar with the references made by the names of the polishes in this collection.

I recently also picked up two more colors from the same collection: Five Rules (how could I not get this, right?!) and History of the World. I’ll be reviewing them next week.

The one I received from Topbox was New Birth, essentially a white cream with a pale blue tint. I find that indoors it pulls a touch aqua, and in sunlight it goes a tad grey instead, which is a bit odd.

I found the application really annoying with this one. I needed to do four thinner coats to get even coverage. I wouldn’t recommend this polish unless you really love the color. I think white and very pale pastels are brilliant for summer, but I am usually unwilling to put up with the application difficulties.
