China Glaze New Bohemian Luster Chrome revisited

There is a drug store brand that has recently released a luster collection that reminds me very much of the China Glaze New Bohemian Luster Chrome collection that was just released this past August. Since I did't get a chance to share them with you then (although I know the blogosphere was bombarded with swatches), I will take this opportunity to do so.  Even as recent as this past weekend, I have spotted the China Glaze New Bohemian Luster Chrome collection in a local Sally Beauty. So they are still available.

The collection consists of 6 duochrome (multichrome) polishes:
  • Unpredictable* – "Multidimensional gorgeous green" - depending on the lighting I saw transitions from Teal to Green to Gold.  Application was smooth but brushstrokes were evident.

  • Rare & Radiant – Extraordinarily rich gold - depending on the lighting I saw transitions from Green to Olive to Gold to Bronze. Rare & Radiant is said to be a dupe of the much sought after Chanel Peridot. Rare & Radiant is also duppish of OPI Just Spotted The Lizard.

  •  Swanky Silk – Brilliant beige with peach undertones - depending on the lighting I saw transitions from Gold to Peach to Pink. I would definitely go for 3 coats with my next application.

  • No Plain Jane – Lavish lavender-pink - depending on the lighting I saw transitions from Purple to Lavender to Pink. This reminds me of one of the Nubar duochromes, Purple Beach.



  •  Want My Bawdy – Sexy sapphire blue - depending on the lighting I saw transitions from a gorgeous sapphire blue to a deep purple. Funny, I recently did a swatch of Nicole by OPI-It's Up To You, that is a sapphire blue to purple duochrome.

  • Deviantly Daring* – Adventurously bold peacock teal - depending on the lighting I saw transitions from blue to teal. I don't have anything in my collection similar to Deviantly Daring so I am happy to have it.


Review:

  • Opacity: pictured is 2 coats several would require additional coats prevent all visible nail lines.
  • Application: each of the six requires great care to prevent brushstrokes
  • Bottle: 14 mL – 0.5 Fl oz.
  • Brush: Standard narrow brush
  • Price: China Glaze - Reg. $5.99-6.99, but can be often found on sale at Sally, Ulta and other e-tailers.


Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
