Collection: China Glaze 2014 Winter, Twinkle
Today’s polish is not by Essie! Haha, I realize I’ve really overdone the Essie lately. Of course, I’ve also done China Glaze quite a lot, so I will have to promise to swatch a wider variety of brands. I have a slew of new polishes to review by brands like Banila Co., Eve Snow, H&M, Innisfree, JINsoon, Rituals, and Yves Rocher (if you’re not already sick of those, too!)—hopefully, I’ll get at least a couple of those out for next week.
Anyway, Meet Me Under the Stars (81927) is a black packed with chunky silver glitter. I picked it up at a discounted price at my local beauty supply; I don’t think I’d have chosen it, otherwise, since it isn’t entirely my style! (Not much of a glitter girl, unfortunately.)
It does do a pretty good impression of a night sky, though perhaps with a dose of space opera, as well.
The formula is pretty good, considering the amount of glitter in it and the somewhat sheer quality of the black base. Two coats gives you pretty good coverage, though I preferred an extra just to get the glitter distributed more evenly.
Of course, the polish dries to a bumpy finish, so you’ll probably want a good layer of top coat over it.
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.
