today's China Glaze Rebel collection polish is Combat Blue-TS! (press sample, kindly provided to me for review). it's a rich blue shimmer that dries down to a matte finish... so then you have the sweet options of keeping it matte or making it glossy! it dries pretty quickly as most mattes do, which is really nice. i used two coats, for full opacity... the issue with this is that it dries so fast if you go over the same spot too many times it will peel up. make sure to have enough (but not too much!) on the brush and don't get OCD about it as you apply :) because you can't go over it too much, you may have a few visible brush strokes... but they aren't noticeable in person unless you get up real close. it looks absolutely gorgeous. i love it both matte and glossy... but i wore it glossy as matte chips more easily and i need my nail polish tough since i'm always working with horses. you will need to use two coats of topcoat to get that shininess up because the first coat gets pretty well eat up by the polish!
two coats Combat Blue-TS, two coats FingerPaints Fast Dry Top Coat on pointer and ring fingernails.
