China Glaze Just Be-Claws, Put a Bow on It, This is Tree-mendous Nail Lacquers

China Glaze Just Be-Claws Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “red with an aluminum-like mirror finish.” It’s a medium-dark, rich ruby red with subtle, cool undertones and a high-shine, metallic finish. There is a lot of depth to this color–China Glaze really knocked this one out of the park. It was mostly opaque after one coat, but I applied two coats to be sure, and you’ll find there’s a richness to the finish with two. The consistency of the formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it spread evenly and without bubbling or pooling along the edges. Cult Nails Annalicious (LE, $12.00) is warmer but similar in the finish. China Glaze Cranberry Splash (LE, $7.50) is very similar, slightly cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

China Glaze Mingle with Kringle, Be Merry Be Bright, All Wrapped Up, Your Present Required Nail Lacquers

China Glaze Mingle with Kringle Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “fierce gold with aluminum-like mirror finish.” It’s a vibrant, rich yellow gold with a metallic, foil-like finish and larger copper flecks of sparkle. It was fully opaque after applying two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too then, so the polish applied evenly and smoothly without pooling along the edges. Zoya Kerry (P, $8.00) is yellower. Chanel Gold Fingers (LE, $27.00) is darker. ORLY Flare (P, $5.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

China Glaze Strap On Your Moon Boots Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Strap On Your Moon Boots Nail Lacquer ($14.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “midnight sky blue.” It’s a darkened, stormy blue with linear, holographic shimmer. I couldn’t come up with any dupes, though, even for something similar in color (but without holographic shimmer).

China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “sea foam green.” It’s a pale, sea foam green (or aqua green, if you prefer) with very fine white micro-shimmer. Butter London Fiver is the closest shade I have to this, but Fiver is a cream finish (no shimmer) and a touch lighter. MAC In the Limelight is bluer, darker, and a cream.
