I realize I’m late to the New Bohemian party but I still ended up getting a couple of polishes from the China Glaze New Bohemian Collection. China Glaze Deviantly Daring is probably the only color that really interested me from this collection after I saw what a duochrome fail the whole collection turned out to be. I think that the colors are pretty, but I was so incredibly let down once swatches started popping up online that I just decided to pass on the whole collection when it first came out.I came across some of the polishes at one of my dusties for dirt cheap so I picked up this color and No Plain Jane.
China Glaze Deviantly Daring is a described as an “adventurously bold peacock teal” and I think that description suits it just fine. I am always a huge fun of teal polishes so I am happy that I decided to pick this one up. I thought the formula was pretty darn perfect. It was easy to control and it was opaque in two coats.
Something weird happened when I applied my top coat of Seche Vite: I found that the duochrome showed up a lot better. I could really see the darker blue flash on the tips and edges of my nails! It’s still not as majestic as I had hoped when I saw bottle shots, but it’s pretty. Brush strokes are one of my most hated polish issues and unfortunately, there were some visible brush strokes: not enough to make me hate the polish but enough to let me they are there–teasing me.
Since I’ve been on a star kick lately, I decided to use another star stamp over Deviantly Daring.
This star pattern is from Cheeky plate CH52.
What do you think? I think that if I find more of these New Bohemian polishes for cheap, I will purchase them. Did you get any of these polishes? What did you think of them?
Thanks for stopping by and catching up. Stay cool and until next time!
