I really like this polish. It is a dusty blue with a hint of grey, cream polish. I used two coats, which gave me full opacity. The application was very easy. At first I thought it was too runny and I was worried that I would flood my cuticles, but I didn't. The colour is not too bright or too edgy, which means that it can be worn by whoever, whenever.

A beautiful polish but not my favorite from the ChG line. It is a gray/blue color with lavender under toned cream polish. It is pretty & a bit unique. Unfortunately, for whatever reason the formula leaves a bit to be desired.

It seems to be well pigmentated, but upon application the first coat is very streaky. With a second coat it is still patchy and would require a 3rd coat to be fully opaque. As I was using a glitter tc over this I did not bother with a 3rd coat, but if you were wearing it alone definitely plan on a 3rd coat.

The texture was nice but the consistency was a bit runny. Though I love ChG polishes, I find that every polish varies a bit in consistency so you can't always count on it being perfect. I suppose that happens whenever things are made in large batches.

Again, with this one it comes in the standard bottle with the standard brush.

Though I like the color & do think it is a bit unique, I am disappointed that it requires 3 coats for full coverage and in the runny consistency. As such, I would not repurchase this one. Unusual for me as ChG is my favorite mainstream brand.

Gorgeous blue with a hint of grey. I guess you could say it's a dusty blue. Takes two or even three coats to be fully opaque. Lasts a few days on me without chipping. I change my polish frequently so I'm not sure how long it would last otherwise. Love blue polish, and this one is a favorite.

Secret Peri-Winkle goes on a bit sheer compared to my other China Glaze cream shades, although it looks great with two coats. This shade dried pretty quickly (maybe 20 minutes per coat?). Wear has been average (ie: good) in comparison to my other shades, also.

Overall, I really love the color itself but would be raving if it was an teensy bit more opaque.

I use this color mostly for nail art since I'm in the sun a lot my hands get tan & don't like the way the color looks against my skin. Other than that it is long lasting creme finish as you'd expect china glaze polishes to be.

Love this colour!!!! I have pale skin and this blue/grey looks amazing against my skin tone! This formula is a little thin, but it only took me 2 coats to get that creamy opaque colour!! Definitely recommend!!!

I own over 150 bottles of nail polish and still have nothing else like this color. It's a gorgeous, dusty, lilac-toned periwinkle that looks really flattering on pale skin. Really nice for spring in particular. The formula is somewhat thin, leaving the first coat a bit patchy. Since I applied this in thin coats, it took 3 for opacity, otherwise you might be able to do it in 2. Despite that, I love the formula - it levels nicely and is the best possible look for a creme polish, drying to a glossy, smooth finish even without the aid of a top coat. I'd definitely get it again.

I bought this pretty much on a whim, and I definitely don't regret it at all. I love the color, I love the texture. But it didn't have the best longevity. It lasted 4 days with no major chips, when for me, a good, awesome nail polish lasts 7. (There are a good many China Glazes that can do that - just not this one.) It's just so classic and, in my decent experience with nail polish shopping, (since the late 90's - I still own neon frosts...) rather unique. Expect to need at minimum two coats, three in some places.

This is, hands down, my favourite blue nail polish.


First, the colour is gorgeous. I'm very pale with cool undertones to my skin, and this is one of the few shades of blue polish that don't make me look dead. Instead, it's one of those happy, fresh blues that are gorgeous in spring and summer.


Second, I love the formula. After two coats, it's shiny and not at all patchy. It dries quickly and last longer than average. Although China Glaze in general has pretty good formulas- I prefer it to O.P.I and Essie almost every time- this is exceptional, even when compared with other polishes of the same brand.


Finally, this stuff is cheap. It can be bought at beauty supply stores for around $6.00 Canadian (might be less expensive for Americans), or at a wholesale cosmetics store for $4.00. The bottle lasts a long time, and I consider it an excellent investment.

Great product! It wasn't too expensive and the color was just right, it was also very shiny. I used 2 coats and 3 on some nails, but since it dried fast i didn't mind it! Though it didn't look too good on my medium/short fingers, but that's just my problem. I'll probably update later with the wear time.
