I own several of China Glaze’s lacquers, and I really enjoy all but Sunset Sail (only because that color pulls some very unflattering undertones on my skin). I find the pigmentation to be on point, and the slimline brush as opposed to a bulky “one-swipe” style makes it much easier to apply the color on my small nails.
I use two coats, because my nail chip easily, and I find that even without a topcoat, the longevity is pleasantly surprising. With a topcoat, I get a good solid week of wear with minimal chipping. I don’t experience any gloopiness or streaking/bubbles when applying this lacquer either, which is always a plus.
The only thing that drives me nuts is the quick drying topcoat. It performs beautifully, but it’s quite runny, often with big drips of it sliding down the brush and causing a mess. If I wipe the excess on the edge of the bottle, it removes too much of the product and not enough is left for my nail. And it smells horrendous. But again, the performance of this topcoat is terrific, so I continue to sing its praises in spite of its drawbacks.
All in all, a great brand.

This shade really does remind me of Dorothy’s red slippers, sometimes so much that while I’m at work, I want to click my nails and say “There’s no place like home” over and over. But I’m not about to ruin a manicure over it. I normally pair this with a deep rich red base and layer this shade over it to have a little sparkle to a classic manicure. One of my favorite nail polish purchases!

I found this nail polish absolutely gorgeous but applied it’s “just” brown, all the shimmer and the variation in colors just disappeared.
But it has the quality of any China Glaze

This can be a toss up. One the one hand, if you have a good hand and a little patience, this can be a gorgeous neon yellow. On the other hand, the formula is average leaning on thick and can be streaky if applied carelessly. It’s one of those polishes you wouldn’t bother with unless you had the patience. Love the color, hate the effort!
