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 Glazeย nails a polish. ย 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. ย It dries down in the average amount of time, but it is forgiving if you apply a second coat too quickly. ย China Glaze’s formula typically lasts a week on me without chipping (just minor tip wear).

Looove this color! I have been trying to find the perfect neon green and this is it! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for sharing!

By the way, how do you prevent bubbles and bed sheet marks on your nails? I always get bubbles 2-3 hours after I paint my nails and bed sheet marks the next day I wake up ๐Ÿ™

I use top coat and base coat and usually paint my nails with 2-3 layers of the colored polish.

This reminds me of a shade by Sinful Colours, but I might have to pay the extra buck for a formula that is MUCH better & doesn’t leave that icky yellowy stain! ๐Ÿ˜€
