My Favourite Collections:
|fast forward top coat|
Forward Top Coat - A great quick dry top coat, has a rather strange smell, but is a great 3-free alternative to Seche Vite, its dry time is nearly as good, and it has a lovely high gloss finish, one of the best top coats out there
Matte Magic - China Glaze's Matte top coat, makes any polish you like have a matte finish, I've not tried this out yet, but I've heard good things.
Cuticle Oil - China Glaze's cuticle is quite popular, they released a special peppermint one for Christmas which got great reviews!
China Glaze is one of the best nail polish companies out there, there is an extensive range of colours and finishes, and loads of unique exciting shades, they are famous for the OMG holo range, which was an awesome range of linear holo polishes. They also do some great Glitter Polishes, they release several large collections throughout the year which are always themed for the season, I love the creative names of their polishes.
- Awesome and extensive range of unique colours
- Usually easy to get a hold of
- Some very unusual unique glitters
- Awesome Christmas themed ranges
- There are often buy 2 get 1 free deals at Sally's (UK)
- can be a little hard to get a hold of in the UK if you don't have access to a Sally's
- Promotions aren't international
