Surprised? Maybe not. Lol. This review wasn't on my To-Do list. BUT... I ended up wanting to wear purple polish for school, and I thought, "Hey, before I add a design, why not take some pictures, and make a review!" So, that's how all this happened. I'm going to make this as short and sweet as possible. :)
So, here's my review on China Glaze's Grape Juice. Here are photos of the bottom of the bottle and the bottle itself:
"Grape Juice" is a purple, glitter polish. I KNOW. GLITTER. Which means it's not the most fun thing to remove from your nail. But I don't really mind that much. So yeah. :D It's glitter, but even without a top coat, the polish, when dried, feels smooth on the nail.
The application process was enjoyable. Lol. The first coat goes on really transparent. It takes three coats to really build up the color, but I used four coats, as seen in the photo below:
It's so pretty. :) The color kind of grew on me. At first, I thought it was just nice. I wasn't CRAZY about it, but it's not like I disliked it. But the longer I wear it, the more I like "Grape Juice." It's a nice purple that gets darker the more coats you layer on.
I took a picture of a close up of the bottle so you can see the sparkles.
You can see the tiny silver flecks of glitter.
The camera managed to capture the color very well for all the photos! The color of the polish in the photo is spot on to the color in real life. I like this color a lot, and I recommend it to any one.
It's not thick and chunky and it's somewhat subtle. But it still draws attention. Good attention!
And the last picture for you all:
Sorry to get off topic, but do I seem less enthusiastic than usual? I'm just tired from school. I keep going to sleep late and waking up early. Oh well. I still had a good day, and I hope you did too! And I hope you enjoy the quick, simple review!
Feel free to click on any of the photos to see larger, more-detailed versions of them.
P.S. I have had "Heart of Gold" by Neil Young stuck in my head all day.
