Been feeling down recently, so needed a colour boost for my life!! Something bright, something glittery, like China Glaze ‘Don’t Be A Square’!
My favourite combi for this nail polish is with ‘Northern Lights’, a silvery hologram top coat which resembles a million stars at the right angle / lighting.
First on China Glaze ‘Don’t Be A Square’, it applies smoothly, texture is a bit watery but dries almost instantly. Like you can touch the first nail after you have painted all ten nails. And within ten minutes, viola, the nails are all set 🙂
I love intense colours, so I usually apply three coats for my nails polish. After three coats, ‘Don’t Be A Square’ still let a bit of your nail bed peek through. I don’t really like the finish, it is a bit dull.
Overall I find China Glaze’s nail polish standard on par with OPI. It is just not as common, especially in Asia because not a lot of salons / shops stock them. China Glaze also has periodical collection launches throughout the year like OPI. Some major US-based online website also don’t ship them internationally, I got my friend to ‘smuggle’ some bottles out for me, teehee.
