China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Sleeping Under the Stars

China Glaze — Sleeping Under the Stars (Nail Lacquer)

Collection: China Glaze 2015 Fall, The Great Outdoors

Welp, my low-buy’s not going that great! I spotted a slew of colors from China Glaze’s new fall collection, The Great Outdoors, at Winners and decided to pick up…several. This is the first China Glaze collection I’ve been wowed by for some time now! I got Cabin Fever, Check Out the Silver Fox, Free Bear Hugs, Pondering, Sleeping Under the Stars, and Wood You Wanna?

Sleeping Under the Stars (82707) is a deep indigo blue with subtle, iridescent purple shimmer that flashes golden olive.

The shimmer is unfortunately quite subtle, to the point of almost being invisible. I couldn’t notice any of the golden olive flash on the nail, either. It’s not a bad vampy blue, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend it.

It is, however, a One-Coat Wonder, though I did two coats for the swatch since it looked a bit plusher that way. I found this polish was easy to apply, but it didn’t go on as smoothly as I would have liked. I’m not sure if it’s because it dried really fast, but the surface didn’t self-level enough and become totally smooth.

It’s kind of a mixed bag, overall. Not bad, but not especially great, either.

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.
