China Glaze Gaga for Green

Happy Sunday, girls!


My second polish from China Glaze ElectroPop comes from the Brights Collection side and is completely un-Amanda.  While I've only recently discovered my love for greens, I don't think our relationship is solid enough for this shade: lime.


First let me start with the formula.  I was actually shocked at how gloopy Gaga for Green applied and was happy that Nory gave me the heads up about this little guy.  After I took control, I was able to apply two thick coats without creating a huge cuticle pooling disaster.  What's really interesting is that in the bottle, Gaga for Green looks like a straight up neon creme.  On the nail, however, it finishes quite jelly and not as bright as I expected.  In two coats it's very opaque, so maybe I'd classify this as a "crelly," that silly name I've heard being used to describe a creme/jelly hybrid.



This lime green polish is really meh to me.  Maybe I'll be more adventurous in the summer, but for now, I can't really be comfortable with something the color of a ninja turtle on my hands.  Plus, it gives me lobster hands. 


I know that this green will definitely find an audience; in fact, I know a number of girls who would go nuts over this.  Unfortunately, I'm gonna have to pass on the color.  Although, if China Glaze perfects the goopiness, I would be interested in seeing more colors in this crelly finish.


Thoughts, ladies?

  1. I'm not really a green person, so I didn't get this one.  It's not the worst green I've seen though.

  2. I'm with on this green.  Too yellow toned, too toxic looking, to gloopy. But I'm willing to give it another go during the summer when I'm feeling neons more.

  3. Crelly. Haha. Neat word. I like the green, it's very unusual. But I like yellow toned colors on me. Maybe with a fun topcoat to make it less ninja turtle-esque?

  4. Maybe...but for something this in-your-face, I'd rather a topcoat that would tone it down a bit, not dress it up.

  5. I love green, but I think it's one I would pass on too.  I am looking forward to finding this collection though!

  6. Other than for the goopy factor, I loved the green. This may be good for a sandwich? Have to try it.

  7. I haven't seen at my local Sally's yet (although that place is always hit or miss with collections). I have, however, come across this at a random local beauty supply store. Hopefully you'll get it soon!

  8. That's an interesting thought...I've never tried a sandwich but I do have a number of random glittery polishes I won in a giveaway that I can't think of what to do with.  Oh, Nory!  You always polish inspire me :)

  9. I am not a green person either, but this would be good for the summer.

  10. That's what I love about summer: you can get away with the craziest things on your fingers!

  11. I think it's so great how split people are on this green!

  12. Your swatches and Nory's swatches of this color are making me want it, but it's always a fine line with these more yellow-based greens for me since sometimes they make me look jaundiced haha. Like you said though, this might be a good shade to whip out in summer!

  13. Yeah, it's that yellowish aspect that's really getting to me. Some girls absolutely love that (Nory for example) but I just have a hard time pulling it off. Jaundiced is a perfect way to describe it!
