I really wanted to love this one, and I do, color wise. The formula on this one pretty much sucked though, and that kills me to say about my beloved China Glaze. It reminds me of the difficulty I had with Essie Knockout Pout, which I've never worn after swatching.
This is FIVE coats of FFF. Five! One-two-three-four-five!! I stop at three. I know it's a neon and a bit tricky to apply but it was just so streaky. After doing my left hand, I tried doing much thicker coats on my right and was able to reach opacity on about three nails with three coats, but some needed a fourth.
It really is such a beautiful shade and so summery, so it's a shame that it needs so many coats. Fortunately, being a neon, it dries incredibly fast. It also, like other neons, dries matte. I had a bit of a hard time capturing the color, it literally glows. Not in a glow in the dark kinda way, but it just seems like there's a black light over your hands everywhere you go. It's such a fun color so I probably will give it another try sometime in the future. I don't own many neons or wear them often, so my personal difficulties could've been just from lack of experience.
Do you own this polish? Did you have the same issues as I did? Share!
