It's been a while since my last China Glaze nail lacquer purchase - I believe it was Glittering Garland. Not too long ago, I bought two most popular shades from the Hologlam collection: Galactic Gray and When Stars Collide. They were the ones I thought were worth owning.
China Glaze, Galactic Gray, 2 coats
China Glaze, When Stars Collide, 2 coats
I don't think I've ever been so disappointed in China Glaze nail polish as I was in these two. They were supposed to be amongst the favorites from the collection (by many bloggers), but I can't say I like them. Why? For two reasons: application and color. The formula of these two polishes was weird: goopy and hard to apply. The color is just... boring. It looks so mediocre in low light and when the sun hits it, there's just a little itsy bitsy hint of holographic effect. So underwhelming. I wanted to put them in the 'to get rid of' bin immeditaly, but I'm gonna give them a second chance. If they fail to gain my attention again, they're going away. Now I'm wondering: why are other people loving these two shades so much? Did I get a bad batch or are the other shades from the Hologlam collection even worse in comparison? I'm not sure, I only know I do not like them. Period.
Thanks for looking and commenting!
