When I first tried China Glaze Bahamian Escape, it was thick, streaky and funny. I tried to thin it, I tried to love it, but I couldn't. I used half of the bottle for frankening, and two days ago I poured about 7 ml of yellow creme polish with much thinner consistency in the Bahamian Escape. The result looked identical to For Audrey from the bottle, but on the nails, it's darker, greener and more greyed out. In two coats it's perfectly opaque, too. Now looking at it, it could be a dupe for Barry M Spring Green. The picture doesn't do the color justice, but this is the only decent picture I could get today.
I konaded using plates m36, m51 and konad polishes in white & pink. It has a very springy feel to it =) I'm planning on ordering China Glaze Up&Away and I will be wearing that stuff for all spring! =)
Last year I paid a fortune for Emerald Sparkle, and waited for it to arrive on my doorstep for 4 weeks, and the result was that I got the bad bottle. I'm going to order this year's ES, along with Dorothy Who and Mint Candy Apple. I'm really annoyed.
Quick question: Do your glass/crystal nailfiles last forever, or do you experience that the rough glass surface gets smooth after repeated usage and doesn't file anymore? I'm on my third file now, is there something wrong with me, maybe?
