China Glaze Merry Berry Nail Lacquer
Let’s Get Merry with Berry!
China Glaze Merry Berry Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich berry red creme.” It’s a deep red–perhaps with a hint of berry–that for all its darkness, remains dark and almost muted, which is interesting to see in a shade so clearly red. Essie Size Matters is similar. Dior Graphic Berry is more berry-colored. China Glaze City Siren is a touch darker.
It’s opaque in two coats, and it has a beautiful flow and consistency that’s not too thick or too thin, so it applied evenly across the nail without streaking or pooling along the edges of the nail. Merry Berry is a very classic, deep red cream–you may have something like it in your stash, and if not, a worthwhile version to own. I typically get a week of wear out of China Glaze’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.
