I want to like China Glaze. I really do.
Especially since a store near me sells some really retry ones for relatively cheap...
But I don't like it.
It's no that its bad quality, or chips fast, or anything like that. That's where it boosted itself up with me: I can't deny that it does its job well, and it's pretty.
But there's one aspect that I just cannot bring myself to overlook, and that is the LIST OF INGREDIENTS.
It has camphor and formaldehyde resin, and that's a deal breaker right away. It also has all other sorts of junk in it, comparable to a cheapie brand I once saw at a dollar store. Your nails are porous, and I don't wanna risk anything just to have pretty nails. But hey, to each their own.

I am a great fan of OPI until I try 'For Audrey' from China Glaze. It is a nice Tiffany Blue color. And its goes so lovely. It stays for almost 10 days (with a top coat re-applied on the 5th day).
I am now in my second color - Dress me up. Its nice brown-pink shade. I have no problems with the brush or the drying time. I used Orly Bonder as base coat and Seche Vite as top coat.
I like the glossy shine of China Glaze. My new love!

I don't know what makes me so unique among hundreds of people that these just DO NOT work for me at all. I hate the brush. It's thin and doesn't spread easily. The nail polish is runny when immediately applied but then it becomes thick and takes forever to dry. An hour later I'll touch one of them and I can still see my fingerprint in it, and I don't have this problem with OPI. It takes 3 coats to get opaque coverage.The colors are great but they're a nightmare to work with.

I recommend this polish over OPI. It stays on forever

You have to apply at least 2 heavy coats in order to get the full affect. However, I don’t use this to paint my nails because it is AMAZING at water marble!!!!!

I thought China Glaze would be better than OPI as many people do use it and it is a little cheaper. BUT I was wrong.
The two colours I bought were for the summer, bright and catchy, one for the toes and one for the hands. Toes: Hang Ten Toes, and for the fingers, Highlight Of My Summer. Alright, I've gotta say, these colours could possibly be my favourite colours of all time. The pink of Hang Ten Toes is so bright, neon, perfect for the summer, under the sun, perfect. Highlight of my Summer was very bright, green, a little mint look alike, my favourite colour of all time!
But sadly, the formulas were not too great... Neither were the brushes... Difficult to apply, spread, and was a rather thinner brush. However, the bottle cap was easy to hold and control.
Overall review of both polishes:
I think these were definitely not the best. Highlight of my Summer chips in less than 30 hours which is absolutely disappointing to me since the colour is so gorgeous and I would just want it around for the last 4 days of the week. I love the colour, now all chipped, I don't know if I should remove one nail, or have to remove all of them now. Not gonna consider getting these again, never going to consider it actually.

When used with China Glaze Base coat/Top Coat the nail polish lasts up to 5 days on my nails but I am gentle with my nails so that could be why too(treat them like they are freshly polished for the most part lol). I am pretty busy so it is nice if I can go 5 days without doing my nails and they still look freshly done if I have last minute plans and don't have time to do my nails but usually my nails are freshly done before an event anyway.
China Glaze has so many interesting colors to choose from! Lots of fun glitter polishes too! With China Glaze it seems like I always can find a new polish that I really want and don't have a similar color already of.
My small China Glaze collection includes:
First & Last Treatment
Dandy Lyin' Around
Flip Flop Fantasy
Strap On Your Moonboots
When Stars Collide
Not In This Galaxy

OPI has competition. These nail polishes stay on my nails for about a week. I have natural nails so many nail polishes don't stay on for more than 3 days. My pedicures last past 2 weeks without any chips! They are also $2 cheaper. I highly recommend this brand. My only gripe is they don't have a large color variety like OPI.

I am quite happy with my China Glaze Nail Polish! I find it rivals OPI in durability. The brush is a bit smaller than I'd like but definitely manageable.
Dries respectably quickly and looks very nice!
