China Glaze Running in Circles. Here's a little gem I recently picked up from the beauty supply store. I hadn't seen this color before and it looked amazing, so I had to have it. A quick Googling tells me it's from the Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away 3D collection which I don't remember at all... It must have come out while I was hibernating. It's medium green jelly base with bright, shiny, multi-tonal green and gold chunky glass fleck shimmer. The bottle shows a hint of blue duochrome flash, but I don't see any of that on the nail. It's mostly yellow-toned green, which is my favorite type of green, but you can see little flecks of blue-toned green within the shimmer. The jelly base is more on the blue side as well.
The formula on this was runnier than I expected from China Glaze. I had to go very slow while applying to prevent it from running and pooling in my cuticles. I used three coats here and I'm happy with how it looks at three. Once it is fully dried it loses some of its shine, but a nice, thick topcoat takes care of that. I'd recommend a quick-dry like Seche Vite since this has a slightly longer than average dry time.
Mmm, sparkly green polish. The best.
