Tempest is so ... KICK BOOTIE!

<P>

I've had this one for quite some time before trying it, and I have to say, I kick myself for not having tried it sooner! It's absolutely unique, stunning, interesting, trendy, the list of adjectives could go on and on .. It's blue, it's purple, not too deep, not too sheer. Yes, definitely an unconventional shade …

I love the dual effect purple/blue color of this polish. It's probably one of the most unique colors I've seen. I have to admit, however, that it definitely takes 3 coats for opaque coverage. I can normally get away with 2 coats, but this formula is a little more sheer and streaky than others. I don't mind, though, because it's such an nice color and wears like iron on me.

I understand the bad review of this polish but I love it. I have a boatlaod of polishes and I have none that truly compare to this. What a gorgeous blurple, and the duochrome-type effect is intriguing. On the nail Tempest is a bit flashy--I wear the rainbow in polish, so not "flashy" as in "noticeable/weird" but "reflects light and color in a flashing way." The …Read more

The best of the blurples. This is an amazing blue-purple that is beautifully shimmery. It even has a bit of a duochrome.

I agree with previous reviewers that this isn't the most opaque polish, but I always put on at least 2 coats of any polish to get the most even color distribution and application. The first coat tended to be streaky and uneven...leaving some spots really sheer and others darker. After the second coat it was opaque enough, and I definitely reached bottle color at the third coat.

I …

This nail polish definitely requires 3 coats to get full coverage. It is a beautiful blue purple and I love it. Out of all the China Glazes I have, I think that this is the one that has chipped the quickest on me. That may be because I've been tinkering with my base & top coat combos. I will try it again and I will also try layering this to see what effects I a can come up with.

this is an awesome color! i'm not likely gonna find another girl wearing this, even in a huge city.. i needed 3 coats which sucks. the drying time for me was pretty average for china glaze. i love the color, truly unique. very similar to caboodles hi def (i think it's called) it's deeper and more opaque per coat than tempest.
one coat was very streaky and uneven. i now see why …

Really mixed feelings about this product.

While I absolutely adore the color (like a purple with a cornflower sheen), the application was rather streaky/uneven. I put this on my toes and it's not so bad on my little toes but it looks really uneven on my big toes! I put on 2 coats and perhaps should have put on 3... but I find CG takes sooo long to dry! Using a fast dry top coat …

Pedicure with 2 coats Tempest plus 1 coat Out the Door Holographic looks great as a sexy unexpected color with my usual jeans and flip-flops. Inky violet with blue-pink shimmer.

Could have stood a 3rd coat to completely cover the center base sheer spot where I usually re-track with the brush, but meh, on toes, 2 is fine. i love looking at it esp. in sun with holo top coat.

Tempest is a beautiful polish with a medium to dark purple base that flashes a medium cornflower blue. I'm wearing this on my toes right now and wish that it wasn't so cold out so I can see them more! The first coat of this polish is very sheer, and I was a bit worried. However, after three coats, you reach bottle color. I usually do three coats of polish anyways so this is no big deal …Read more
