Plain or Not, This Jane Could Be Improved

China Glaze No Plain Jane Nail Lacquer ($6.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “lavish lavender-pink.” It’s a red-toned medium-dark purple with darker purple shimmer and a slightly metallic finish. I wasn’t able to see any shift with this one–it’s a shimmery purple but not much else. Oddly enough, I couldn’t think of a dupe! Barielle Passion Pirouette was the only color that came close, but it’s pinker.

No Plain Jane is still noticeably sheer after two coats, and the formula isn’t perfect. It was a bit streaky overall, left a lot of visible brush strokes, and ended up looking patchy in places. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so I didn’t have any problems with the polish pooling along the sides.  I typically get a week of wear out of China Glaze’s polishes with minor tip wear but no chipping.
