China Glaze — Five Rules (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

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

This is another China Glaze from last fall’s The Giver collection, which is a tie-in with the movie of the same name. I meant to review this and History of the World right after reviewing New Birth, all from the same collection, but obviously I got sidetracked!

Now, I haven’t seen the movie nor read the book it’s based on, so I’m entirely innocent of the references made by the names of the polishes in this collection. And although I wasn’t especially enthralled with the way Five Rules looks in the bottle, I could hardly resist buying a polish with a name that half says my blog is awesome. 😉

Five Rules is a somewhat whitened clay in a cream finish. It’s a pretty unique color in my collection, and although I’m not in love with it on my skintone, I like trying something that’s a bit different. This color is certainly not for everybody!

Application was OK considering it’s kind of a pastel shade of taupe grey, with its white base. I needed three coats for even coverage.

  1. I enjoy creamy off whites – I just discovered the Essie shade Urban Jungle which I want to try to see if I can find. This shade reminds me a little bit of that.
    PS. The Giver was a horrible movie.
