China Glaze - Kiwi Cool-Ada

When I first opened this package, kindly sent by the good ladies at China Glaze, my first reaction was... errrrr.... okkkkkkk.

I'll be honest when I say I thought this could be one of the ugliest colours ever.  Thankfully, the little ugly duckling in the bottle turns into a swan on the nail.  It's fabulous.

Now, this is a neon so the rules of neon apply here: you're going to need at least three coats to get to opaque AND this dries to a semi-matte finish (think BYS Matte Deep Purple and that's the finish).  I ended up putting a coat of Seche Vite over this just because it looked 'unfinished' without it.

Despite my initial misgivings, and I truly think this does look unattractive in the bottle, on the nail it's an oustanding neon.  Kudos to China Glaze for taking a risk, and banking on their clever fans trusting their judgement, with this lacquer.

A risk well worth taking, don't you think?
