China Glaze — Crown for Whatever (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: China Glaze 2017 Fall, Happily Never After (Halloween)

I don’t usually pick up mattes, but Crown for Whatever from China Glaze’s recently released Halloween-themed collection still caught my eye. (I’ve previously reviewed Queen, Please! and Sin-derella from this collection.)

Crown for Whatever (84083) is a deep, indigo purple with extremely subtle, fine fuchsia shimmer. It dries matte. I am not usually a huge fan of the matte look, but this one is quite striking and I probably the first matte I’d consider wearing without a glossy top coat over it!

The polish applies smoothly, though it can be a little tricky to get the edges even. It dries quite quickly. Two coats gave perfectly opaque coverage.

Of course, I could not help trying it out with a glossy top coat, though instead of a clear polish, I used one coat of its collection sister, Queen, Please! and the result is ahhhmazing:

You can see that green iridescence I promised you in my Queen, Please! review, now, right?

I think this is definitely going to be my Halloween mani! I’ll aim to be a little tidier around the edges, though.

  1. That is definitely one of the more interesting matte shades out there, I love that little “glow” the shimmer gives it! With Queen, Please over the top, it looks Northern Lights-ish, super pretty!

  2. It’s a matte that I don’t hate – the shimmer definitely gives it more dimension. Although, it’s a billion times better with a shiny top coat! 😀
