China Glaze Manhunt Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Manhunt Nail Lacquer ($7.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bold cobalt blue.” It’s a rich, bold cobalt blue. It has more of a jelly finish from what I can tell, as it’s not quite a cream, but perhaps not a full-on jelly finish either. Though very shimmery in finish, Zoya Song is similar in boldness and overall blue hue. China Glaze Ride the Waves is much lighter (and sheerer). Illamasqua Force is similar but a little more muted. Butter London Blagger is more true blue than cobalt.

China Glaze Swanky Silk Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Swanky Silk Nail Lacquer ($6.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “brilliant beige with peach undertones.” At one angle, it’s a brilliant champagne gold, and when tilted, it gets a little bronzy, almost pink-bronze. The shift is subtle, though–don’t expect a serious duochrome here. I don’t have any other similar shades that have a little shift like this one does. Chanel Delight is a bit darker, less golden. MAC Soiree has a similar story–a little darker, not so golden. China Glaze Jingle Bells has a similar golden coloring.

China Glaze No Plain Jane Nail Lacquer

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.

China Glaze Desert Sun Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Desert Sun Nail Lacquer ($7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “delicious caramel.” It’s a burnt orange–but lightened, not rusty–very much caramel-colored, though a little warmer. China Glaze Orange You Hot is more orange and has shimmer. Zoya Arizona is lighter, brighter. Sinful Cloud 9 is brighter, more tangerine. China Glaze Papaya Punch is more orange, brighter.

China Glaze Adventure Red-y Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Adventure Red-y Nail Lacquer ($7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid red.” It’s a medium-dark red cream with some depth and richness; if it had shimmer, it would read very holiday. MAC Stage Red is very comparable. China Glaze Winter Berry is a bit darker. MAC Get Noticed is a smidgen darker. Butter London Pillar Box Red is brighter. MAC Obey Me is comparable. Rescue Beauty Lounge Glamourpuss is a touch darker. Zoya Burke is similar.

China Glaze Rare & Radiant Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Rare & Radiant Nail Lacquer ($4.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “extraordinarily rich gold.” It’s a dirty, yellowy gold with antique gold/brown and green. It flashes from a dirty, antique gold to grass green. As I mentioned earlier this week, Color Club Editorial is very comparable, as they both are similar to Chanel Peridot. Though not quite as similar, Ozotic #507 is worth mentioning–it just shifts more to blue than to green.
