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.

Put a Bow on It Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “magenta glitter.” It’s a sparkling, muted pink-shimmered purple micro-glitter. It has a sandy, sparkly texture, and it dries to a mostly matte finish (the sparkle isn’t totally matte). This shade was mostly opaque after two coats. The consistency was on the thinner side. I don’t have any dupes for this shade, especially because of the finish; the only shade I considered was Zoya Carly (P, $8.00), which is darker and has a totally different finish (they’re not dupes at all).

This is Tree-mendous Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “green with fine gold glitter.” It’s a mix of light-medium, yellow-toned green, emerald green, and light gold micro-shimmer and micro-glitter. It has that sandy, sparkly texture that’s mostly matte but still sparkles here and there. The consistency of the formula was thinner and a little watery, and the color payoff was still noticeably sheer after two coats. Ironically, I think it’s too dense, though, to work better as a top coat, as it will cover a lot of the underlying polish, but using a green or gold polish underneath for one coat would help this look more opaque with less coats. The only other green sand-textured shade I have is Zoya Chita (P, $8.00), which is several shades darker and less warm-toned.
