Dear China Glaze,
You know I love your polishes and all the amazing colors you create. I am a loyal and faithful customer but I am so not in love with this Metallics collection. Please don’t hate me.
Ok, so I’m sure the rest of you know what’s coming but I have to put it out there. This collection did nothing for me. With rich metal shades coming out for fall, this lineup could have been huge. Hey, it still might be. I’m just one little polish lover and there are tons of people out there that could love these.
Let’s start with the good. For one, my mom is wearing Platinum Pearl right now and she has received so many compliments on the shade. Believe me, the colors are not the problem. All three polishes are well pigmented, filled with glitz and very fun. For example, Platinum Gold is extremely unique and my favorite of the bunch. It’s very wearable and makes me think of fall leaves, hot cider and cozy sweaters. And Platinum Silver would be a great shade for New Year’s Eve.
It’s just that the formula isn’t right in my opinion. Even my nail tech commented on it when she applied Platinum Pearl to my mom’s nails. The consistency is thick and goopy, making it difficult to apply which makes brush strokes imminent. As you can tell below, I had major issues with it pooling at my tips and looking uneven. I even redid the manis below and still couldn’t make it work.
I’m not telling anyone not to buy these, I’m just sharing my experience. I never claimed to be a nail tech so if you have no problem with these polishes, kudos to you. I’d love for you to comment and share with the group.
