China Glaze, Water You Waiting For. (Happy New Year!)

Let's Bling in the New Year! ...and that's exactly what I did!

Water You Waiting For is from China Glaze's Cirque Du Soleil Cllection. Initially I thought this was a blue glitter but it's actually a trick of the eyes; it's actually aqua green and purple glitter in a sheer blue base. The combo actually looks like water to me... not regular water but the gorgeous waters from many vacation destinations.

I thought this was going to be a tricky glitter to apply but this polish had the last laugh because it practically applied itself! It's definitely thick, but it applied really easy and in 3 strokes. The brush worked well with the polish and fanned out on the nail perfectly. I had read some reviews that mentioned they used 3 coats, but maybe my formula was denser and thicker than theirs because mine was good at 2 coats. In one of the photos you can see a little sheerness but it's not noticeable in real life. Dry time wasn't bad at all for a super thick glitter. I used one coat of Gelous and then 1 coat of Seche Vite. If you are into the 'Liquid Sand' finish I would recommend just 1 coat of Gelous for staying power. Even with the Seche Vite it's a little bumpy but fine for me.



I love the slightly larger purple, or maybe even lavender, glitters. It's a beautiful combo and it is super blingly! I wore these as I rang in the New Year last night; I prefer some colorful bling as opposed to black or silver. I hope you all are having a great New Years!
