I bought this polish because of all the glowing reviews, but this shade didn't work out for me. China Glaze's Below Deck is an interesting color. It's mauve and grey and tan and taupe and beige and lavender all at the same time. If you're a fan of unusual raisin-y neutral polishes, you might want to try this one out.But the shade itself just didn't do it for me. I feel like if it were a little lighter, or darker, or a little more SOMETHING then I would probably love it. But as it is, this particular one wasn't quite flattering on my nails. I'm sure it's just a matter of skin tone, but this color was just a little bit "off" for me.Good formula though. Opaque in two coats and no problems with application or wear. Overall, I liked it but I didn't love it. Wouldn't buy it again.
I recently purchased this on Ebay and I love it. On my pale cool toned skin it looks like a dusty raisin color. It is a beautiful neutral color that is perfect for autumn.
I was a little confused by this polish. It looks different in different light conditions. In bright light it has a mauve undertone and I like it very much, but indoors and in poor lighting it looks brown on me, which I am not the fan of. The formula of this polish is very good, as is the case with all China Glaze polishes I own. I will reach out for it occasionally, but the colour is not what I expected and therefore I wouldn't repurchase.
Below Deck is a very trendy and cool colour for the fall and winter. It is a purple with grey undertones and it super flattering on so many skin colours. The application of this nail polish is a DREAM it is creamy and honestly you could pull off only one coat of this, but 2 coats is absolutely perfect for this polish. It lasts for a long time without chipping especially with a good top coat. I get tons of compliments whenever I wear this polish and it's definitely one I see myself grabbing for more often in the fall.
