A couple of weeks ago I posted about what I believed to be the most amazing fluro aqua nail polish EVER – China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle. I lost count of the number of you who contacted me after that telling me how close this Barry M was and boy were you right. I have misplaced the China Glaze (sob) so can’t do a full on dupe but you’d best believe that as soon as it resurfaces I will follow up because I think this is pretty darn close. It has that lit from within look that gives the illusion you’ve used a white base to brighten the shade when in fact it’s just an amazing colour in one bottle.
I love the Gelly formula for it’s application but I have to wear a topcoat to prevent chipping so the glossy finish is kind of lost on me but if you do well without the top coat then this really is a one stop shop. My only negative when comparing this with the China Glaze is drying time, that is almost satin and very thin so I need 3 coats but they dry super fast. This is thick and gloopy so 2 coats max but much longer to set.. swings and roundabouts plus I buy my CG from Nail Polish Direct where the price is so low there’s not much in it with regard to value. They’re both nice I guess it comes down to which you can more easily get your hands on and what finish you prefer as to which I’d recommend.
PS. It’s MAY.. can you even believe it? It’ll be Christmas before we know it 😉
