Being a director of a site retailing makeup and cosmetics comes with advantages and perks of enjoying new collection FREE. During a showcase meeting with China Glaze team I got to try some of their new collection, what really caught my attention was the history behind China Glaze and Ghoulish Glow.
I was just never convinced with the brand name “CHINA” glaze but at the meeting the team explained it’s a 13year old American Brand containing China Clay as a nail hardener, the same material that gives porcelain its shiny finish. Since the Health Authorities don’t allow Clay in the name they named it China Glaze and has nothing to do with China. The brand caught my eye particularly for its staying power, its wide range of on-trend colors and its beautifully designed packaging.
Enough said about the brand, lets talk about this glow in the dark polish. I know Halloween is few months away but this polish got all the attention it should get at home and office. I usually try these polishes for my niece who loves makeup and polishes and she is only 9. Tried it, went home, showed it to her and wow it did exactly what it says slightly scary but super fine.
How to use it – I just applied 2 coats of the polish let it dry, held a flashlight over my nail for 30 seconds and voila it glowed for a while. Like all glow in the dark it needs to be charged with a little light. I think the glow is just fine. If it glowed constantly, it would be boring. Every now and then, when I walk into a darker area, they glow a little. Of course the curious person that I am wore it to a club and wow it glowed all evening and got a lot of compliments. It was so much fun when I actually convinced one of the guys in the office to try it and we all went into the dark stairways to see it glow.
I did read reviews where people have complained about it being steeply priced and very milky in color. I used it on a black polish and it gave a nice muddy effect to the nails. I would buy it for 36AED and share it with friends since it wont be of much use to me alone.
Next on list to try is the Gelaze collection.. Stay tuned to read more on it.
