I absolutely love this product. My friend introduced me to the China Glaze brand last year and I fell in love with it. I don't think it goes on too thin at all I actually think the color looks great and vibrant after only two coats. All of my nails did chip within a few days, but my nails always chip quickly so I wasn't surprised. I will absolutely re-purchase this product once I run out, it's a beautiful color for the spring and summer!
I bought this color last summer as my solution to those awful neons that look bad on everyone. Its bright, but not blind your retina bright. I really hope that trend doesn't continue in 2013. Brights are so much more wearable than neons that NEED a white base.It took me 3 coats to get full coverage. 2 coats still had visible nail line. So its thinner than some other brand's cream polishes, but I thought it was easy to use and dry time was pretty fast. It doesn't need special treatments like most neons and unlike China Glaze metallics I didn't have issues with tip wear in the first 48 hours.
I went to the beach and I saw a friend wearing this bright fun beautifully balanced pink coral shade on her toes. I asked her what she was wearing and she said that she didnt know and that she usually mix colours.The next day the hunt was on for this shade. the closest colour I had in my collection that was remotely close was 'Sunset Prisms' by Maybelline. I then stumbled upon this CG shade. I wasnt sure of the shade and i bought 2 other CG shades that fell in that colour family just for security (Thataway and Make Some Noise). I was not disappointed to say the least. The color is vibrant and opaque after one coat (no top coat necessary). No smudging or chipping. It dries quickly. Worth the investment.
I dont understand the other reviews, I really think the formula is actually quite good. Its more on the watery side than being thick and if you compare it to some of the essie polishes this one from china glaze is like a dream! Not really streaky, after two coats you have full opacity and a nice bright color. Lasting time: at least 4 days withOpacity: One two coatsNo bubbles, good to work with. The color is really really bright, nice orangey red.
