China Glaze Whirled Away: Swatch and Review

Hello gentle readers.

I have just one burning question to ask...

Really, China Glaze?


China Glaze Whirled Away. Oh, you heart breaker! China Glaze, you produced this polish that got me so excited then dashed me upon the rocks of disappointment and despair.

*Drama queen, much?*

China Glaze Whirled Away is supposed to be a bottle of pure, unadulterated fun. A clear base just swimming with long black bars, large black hex and jumbo white matte hex glitters. This polish looks like fun. It. Is. A. Nightmare. Application was a long, drawn out process of stroking, patting, coaxing, placing, fishing, placing again, base glooping into mounds, base forming trenches. Argh! Why? Oh! Why?

This is one "coat" if you want to call it that, over China Glaze Surreal Appeal. I topped it with two coats of Gelous to get it as smooth as I could.

I Love China Glaze polish. Gentle reader, you know I do. And I want to love this glitter. I want to love it so much. Glitters like this usually delight my eyes and make me smile. This one makes me want to throw myself upon my bed and sob while my ladies in waiting bathe my face with cool cloths and bring me iced wine.

China Glaze, I have to throw you in the tower for this one. Badly done.

Have you purchased this polish? What do you think of it? Was it as difficult for you as it was for me? Did you have better luck with it than I did? Please do share, I'd love to hear what you think.

Thank you so much for popping in and reading. Have a lovely day and may your polish never bubble.
