Take a Walk on the Wild Side with This Teal

China Glaze Exotic Encounters Nail Lacquer ($3.00 to $7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “lush green creme with blue undertones.” It reads as a dusty green-teal with a cream finish on me. Not a dupe, but reminiscent in the kind of color family, Rescue Beauty Lounge Jack has a similar green-teal coloring but is much, much darker. MAC Screening Room is much bluer. Though blue, Illamasqua Muse had a similar dusted quality. Β I was surprised to find that I could not discover any dupes within polishes I’ve reviewed–none of three I mentioned in the post are dupes.

The color was mostly opaque in two coats (there is just a shadow of the nail line visible at times), and it had a really great consistency: creamy, not too thick or too thin, and flowed well across the nail without pooling along the sides, bubbling, or streaking. Β  I typically get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping with China Glaze’s formula. Β The polish retails for $7, but you can find it at various e-tailers for under $4 (the one linked in the post sells this shade for $3).
