today we have the last China Glaze The Great Outdoors polish to look at... Pondering! (it's a press sample, kindly provided for review). it's a also the third and final duochrome... with a strong purple to green shift. it's opaque in about two coats on its own, but i like it over a black creme to conserve polish... i also feel like it makes the color shift stronger! because of all the dimension this polish has, brushstrokes aren't very noticeable... but still try and keep your strokes even just in case :D i have decided that i do, in fact, prefer the duochromes with topcoat, but they are certainly wearable and have a nice shine on their own.
one coat Pondering, over one coat Salon Perfect Oil Slick, finished off with one coat Salon Perfect Crystal Clear Top Coat (all are press samples).
first photo is taken under an Ott light, second photo is taken outside in the shade! the green shift is way stronger than either photo can show :)
as per the press release, 'China Glaze® The Great Outdoors will be available in August 2015 at Ulta and Sally Beauty Supply, as well as fine salons. MSRP $7.50 for individual shades.'
so thankful i had the opportunity to share this collection with you all... it's a pretty perfect for fall! which was your fave? i'm going to have to go with Cabin Fever!! Ria :)
