Time to move on the part two of my review of China Glaze's Bohemian Collection. If you missed it, yesterday I showed Swanky Silk and Unpredictable; you can see that part of the review by clicking here.
Same rules as yesterday--all photos have 2 coats of polish whether they needed it or not (I'll say if they did).
So let's get to it--first up, Deviantly Daring:
|China Glaze Deviantly Daring|
|China Glaze Deviantly Daring--Some green shift|
|China Glaze Deviantly Daring--Green shift|
|China Glaze Deviantly Daring--More subtle green shift|
Deviantly Daring is a blue-green teal duochrome that comes down on the subtle side of duochrome. The colors here are bold, but the shift is gentle. The blue dominates and the green appears here and there, but never becomes the primary color. This polish covered completely in one coat; I used two only for the sake of consistency. I'm also intrigued by the possibility that this might be a good stamping polish, since it has such good coverage. I think these colors are beautiful--this polish reminds me of a serene day at the beach.
Next we have No Plain Jane.
|China Glaze No Plain Jane--brown-gold on the edges|
|China Glaze No Plain Jane--brown-gold shift|
|China Glaze No Plain Jane--more brown-gold|
|China Glaze No Plain Jane--brown-gold edges|
|China Glaze No Plain Jane--up close and personal|
No Plain Jane's duochrome goes between a purple and a brown-gold, colors I never would have thought to put together in a duochrome. But, they work really well together. Something about these colors gives a feminine, antiqued feeling that makes me think of Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby. This polish again is one of the more subtle duochromes in the collection, but the shift is clearly there. This polish definitely needed two coats for full coverage.
(BTW, I used China Glaze's Fast Forward Top Coat on these, and I don't think I waited long enough before putting it on, because as you can see, I got shrinkage!!! ARGH!)
Finally, here is Want My Bawdy:
|China Glaze Want My Bawdy|
|China Glaze Want My Bawdy--purple flash|
|China Glaze--Want My Bawdy|
|China Glaze--Want To Bawdy|

There is one final polish in this collection, Rare & Radiant, which is a Chanel Peridot dupe, and possibly an OPI Just Spotted The Lizard dupe. Tomorrow I will do a post comparing it to the OPI, to finish up my review of the collection. Also, later today I will have a NOTD Before & After that I'll post. But for now I'll say that I really love this collection, even if some of the duochromes are a bit more subtle than others on the market. There are some unique combinations, and I'm not sorry I got them all.
So that's it for now...Thanks for stopping by! Hope you saw something you liked. :)
