In preparation for an upcoming wedding this Saturday with a Candy Lane theme, I had to let my creativity juices flow. However, due to the limited ‘candy’ colours available in my nail polish collection, I chose these 2 neon colours from China Glaze.
I must now eat back my words that mixing normal and gelish nail polishes is now a BIG NONO for me. I realised that they don’t last! Although it’s actually mostly the nail polishes on my pointer fingernails get chip off. Was advised by my colleague who works as a PT manicurist that I shouldn’t be mixing them both, but heck, I did, and many times and the rest of the fingers were rather durable! The only annoying thing is that, once the nail polishes chip or peel off on my pointers, they do so constantly! Can you imagine having to repaint, cure, repaint, cure, repaint, cure…? And this repetitive process is only to paint 1 nail completely. Times the number of times the nail polish peels/chips… And especially annoying when you have a function/event to attend, then they get ruin just before or during the event. Ugly nails, shouldn’t even exist!
Bought some China Glaze nail polishes from Qoo10.

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy
The lumpy and uneven layers
*I must admit I do have shaky hand by the way.
After posting a picture of my NOTD, my ex-classmate and I discussed a little over FB. And in conclusion, China Glaze Neon nail polishes are :
- Dries out too fast which creates lumps and thick layers
- Too runny
Seche Restore’s review was also discussed.
- It didn’t work for my CG Snow Globe. It remains lumpy.
- Was told that it should only be used on normal nail polishes than gelish.
So all in all, I think CG nail polishes are quite sucky now, especially if you have left them untouched for awhile. Upsetting, because I’ve been buying them as they are relatively cheaper.
Gelish nail polishes aren’t cheap and cheap ones might not be good (and they might be fakes).
Flip Flop’s quality was worse than Pool Party’s.
Am gonna think twice before getting anymore CG nail polishes in the future
