NOTD: Too Yacht to Handle

NOTD China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle Review Swatch

Hi there! Do you still remember me? I’ve been a bit MIA from the blogging/youtube world for the past few weeks, but fear not, I’m back. I’m back with a NOTD post that I haven’t posted in what it seems like ages. I’ve recently been gravitating towards the same old shades or have not been wearing nail polish at all – I know, shocker! – so NOTD posts had to take a backseat. However, my sister’s recent purchase broke my streak. China Glaze’s Too Yacht to Handle caught my attention right away (turquoise, *cough cough*). The shade is stunning and perfect for the summer time, but keep in mind that the above photograph is misleading. My camera failed to capture the right undertone, so I suggest you to check out this photo I posted on my Instagram for the true representation. Think less bright and light. Ok, you all know about how much I love the colour, but what about the formula? I have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan. It goes on a little sheer and streaky. Seche Vite’s Dry Fast Top Coat manages to conceal most mistakes, but I still find a few streaks peeking from the bottom. And the fact that China Glaze nail polishes don’t have the biggest brush is not helping the situation. Oh well, what can I say. Essie, Essence and Sally Hansen spoiled the heck out of me, haha. I still love the shade, though. 🙂

    Tale je res čudovit. Sem čisto pozabila nanj, ko sem delala swap za CG lake, bi ga lahko vzela. Pa zdaj ko omenjaš Seche Vite nadlak, sem ga naročila pri tebi, tako da komaj čakam, da ga sprobam, da vidim še sama, čemu tako navdušenje. :))

      U, ja, hvala, sem videla! Upam, da ti bo všeč. Jaz imam love hate relationship z njim, ampak ne morem več brez njega živeti. XD

    It's a shame about the application because this is such a great shade 🙂 xx
