Below: Close-up of the glitter. It looks like fish scales, doesn't it?
Below: As long as I was applying multiple coats of glitter, I added a coat of Pure Ice Cheatin over Doll House.

What was I thinking? I wanted to check out my China Glaze Doll House from the untried's shelf and WoW. China Glaze is probably my favorite brand of polish and this is the first time I've been somewhat disappointed in one of their polishes. This is not really to my liking, but maybe one of you can enlighten me as to how you wear it and like it! I lost track of how many coats I finally ended up with to get even coverage, but maybe it works better as a topcoat over a darker shade. The glitter is massive, both in size and density within the polish, and the formula is clear and a little jelly/gummy-like. I had to keep wiping the ends of my nails with my other hand to get the overhang cleaned up, so now my other fingers are covered with glitter. I do like how the glitter appears as a muted carnation pink and then turns both silver and red with any movement of my hand, but that's about all that I liked. I thought I'd have nothing to lose by putting a coat of Pure Ice Cheatin (that omission of the apostrophe really bothers me, but that's how it's labeled!) over Doll House...nothing to lose but the next hour trying to remove it all! Oh well, now I know what Doll House looks like.
