A very chic greige for fall! Opaque with one coat. Dries quickly. Looks great on my neutral-toned hands. I love it.
This showed up more of a dusty lavender on me. It is a very pretty neutral color. Like all of my China Glaze polishes it is long lasting. I am sure I will buy this again when I use it up.
Dupe alert! This new shade from China Glaze's Rebel Fall 2016 Collection is a 99% dupe of OPI's Taupe-less Beach. Dope Taupe (I love that name!) is maybe one percent darker than the OPI, but other than that they are the exact same color and you really cannot tell the difference.All that aside, I really do like this polish. The shade is a different and interesting neutral. It's a light beigy-grey creme with slight touch of lavender to it. A little on the conservative side, but slightly more edgy than most lady-like shades.Great formula with this one too. Opaque in two coats and no problems with application or wear. Dries to a creamy, shiny finish. Looks very flattering on the nail.I would buy this one again.
Impressed! This polish looked great with only one coat... non-streaky, opaque, and level. I only have a handful of polishes that pass that test. I gave it a 4 because the shade isn't exactly the MOST flattering ever for my skintone, but it does work for me. I bought this at Sally's yesterday and am currently wearing it on both hands and feet. I added a pic above (Image 2) of my nails with CND Stickey Basecoat, 2 coats of Hyper Haute, and Poshe topcoat.
It's ok. I found this to be somewhat slow drying and I wouldn't wear it without shiny top coat (just on its own I'd give the polish 3 stars, but the top coat makes it a lot more worthy). I believe that Sally Beauty Supply is the exclusive retailer for this collection, and they were offering 2 for $10, but I only bought this one. Somehow I expected something more from this but many people will probably be really pleased with these polishes. I wouldn't purchase any more of them though.
