China Glaze Def Defying Nail Lacquer
A Beautiful, Creamy Chartreuse by China Glaze
China Glaze Def Defying Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “lime green” with a cream finish. It’s a brightened chartreuse green with a cream finish. Dior Lime is a few shades darker. Sinful Colors Innocent is yellower. NYX Lime is shimmery. China Glaze Electric Pineapple is yellower. Illamasqua Radium is similar but does have fine shimmer in it, too.
This is a beautiful representation of when China Glaze nails a polish. Def Defying is fully opaque in two coats, and the consistency is flawless–not too thick or too thin–so it coats evenly, fluidly, and doesn’t streak or bubble. It dries down in the average amount of time, but it is forgiving if you apply a second coat too quickly. China Glaze’s formula typically lasts a week on me without chipping (just minor tip wear).
