Hello gentle readers.
Today's polish offering is China Glaze Get Carried Away, a thick grey suspension base packed with tiny silver, small black square, large black, silver and copper hex and black bar glitter mix. This swatch is one coat over Wet n Wild Black Creme. I topped this swatch with two coats of Gelous.
The formula on this, to start was absolutely terrible. Too thick, gloopy and tight. Application was difficult, I tried to swatch it over bare nails, undies, polish. Nothing worked, it just turned out bad. I finally decided to thin it out well then I swatched it over black. I was still not too wild about it but after I applied two thick coats of Gelous it turned out pretty nice. Unfortunately, the black bits got lost against the black background.
This polish is seriously top coat thirsty. Be prepared to put on lots. Dry time is a bit slow, what with it being goopy and all.
I decided to do swatches of this over a few different grey/silver base colours just for fun. I tried China Glaze Millennium, China Glaze Jitterbug and Zoya Kelly. I kind of like the effect over Millennium it looks kind of industrial and cool.
I am not so sad about this as I could be, as it really does look kind of great over black. Will I use it much? I don't know... It'll be fun to hang on to for a while, we'll see what happens with it in the future.
Do you own China Glaze Get Carried Away? What do you think of it? Do you like it? Did it behave well for you or was it difficult? Please do share.
Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great day and may your polish never bubble.
