Today, I have the new China Glaze New Bohemian Luster Chromes to review. I went out and purchased four of the six shades in this collection. The colors I purchased are, Want My Bawdy, No Plain Jane, Deviantly Daring & Unpredictable. I did not get the other two because one of them just did not appeal to me and the other one seems very similar to OPI's Just Spotted the Lizard & Jessica's Iridescent Eye, which is a color I own.
No Plain Jane is supposed to be a Lavender Pink, but to me, it's more lavender than it is pink. Want My Bawdy is supposed to be a sapphire blue. In the bottle it looks like a purple, but on the nail, it definitely looks more of a blurple, which means more to the blue side. Both are pictured with two coats. No Plain Jane is a bit on the sheer side so three coats would probably be better.
Unpredictable is supposed to be a gorgeous green described by China Glaze, it is basically a green that shifts teal from time to time. It is seems similar to OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, but a lighter version of it. Deviantly Daring was actually one of my favorites because it was a one coater! My swatches for this color was pictured with one coat. It is described as a peacock teal, but I don't think the duochrome is too strong on this. After staring at the swatch for a while, it kind of reminded me of Zoya Charla, but with less sparkle? Unpredictable is pictured with two coats.
Overall, I thought I would like this collection more, but I don't. The duochromes look more amazing on the bottle than it does on the nail. On the nail, the duochrome effect just seems less "wowing" to me as when I purchased it. Other than Deviantly Daring, the first coat for the other three were really thin, but it definitely built up by the second coat, although Unpredictable and No Plain Jane could use a third coat for it to look better. Since I found it at my local supply store, it should be out everywhere soon! What do you think about this collection? Are you going to buy any? Which color seems the best? :)
Oh & here is how my brush from Want My Bawdy looked like. It was really frayed out.. What is up with that, China Glaze? :(
