Untried A-Z Challenge Letter I
Hey Everyone, it's time once again for the untried A-Z Challenge. This week is the letter I and I've chosen to share another mainstream polish with all of you. I recently realized that I haven't shown a polish from China Glaze in a really long time, like over a year. I happen to own quite a few and bonus one of the untired's just happened to start with the letter I. It's like the stars aligned and fate stepped in to bring you today's polish, and it is a beauty.
Unlike the last theme, I am only sharing one polish with you today; China Glaze I Truly Azure You.
I Truly Azure You was released in 2017 as part of the Summer Reign Collection. I snagged my bottle during a clearance sale at Sally's and am very glad that I did. This aqua blue nail polish is jam packed with turquoise micro shimmer. Just look at how it glows on the nail.
The formula is nice and I was surprised at how opaque the first coat applied. I'd almost call this a one coat polish. I say almost because I was left with just a hint of a VNL on the first coat. Shown here as two dazzling coats plus top coat.
While I do think this is a spectacular color it's not one that I can see myself wearing alone as a full mani, I do love it for a pedi color though.
Just for my general curiosity, I decided to add a little nail art in the form of foils that I picked up off of eBay.
It's been quite a while since I've attempted nail foils and you can tell by my application. I've got a few bald patches here and there but overall I like the way this turned out. For my top coat, I used a layer of G-Force X from Superchic Lacquer which worked well with the foils as far as shrinkage went but it did seem to dull the holo quit a bit. To fix this issues I simply waited until everything was completely dry and added a layer of Pure Ice Girl on the Run.
What do you think of I Truly Azure You? Is it a color you would wear all on its own? Do you have any tips or tricks when it comes to applying nail foils? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
