NOTD: China Glaze Aquadelic


Manicure: China Glaze Aquadelic from the Electropop Collection. Bright, Neon-Toned Turquoise.

Not A Dupe: Aquadelic looks very similar to China Glaze’s incredibly popular For Audrey, but it is not a dupe. On the nail, Aquadelic has more green undertones, and is far brighter and neon-based than For Audrey; whereas For Audrey is more of a mint-leaning shade, that is dusty / baby blue based (like the Tiffany & Co. color it was named for).

How To: For this manicure I used one coat of Essie's First Base Coat for adhesion; two coats of China Glaze’s Aquadelic; and one coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Notes: Aquadelic has an incredible formula. The consistency was perfect, and super simple to work with; and the color was basically entirely opaque after one coat (I did two just to be on the safe side). I am amazed at the lasting power of this color. I wore it for seven days, experienced 0 chips, and the color never dulled. Another thing to add is that China Glaze polishes have incredible tip-wear, and Aquadelic was no exception. If you like turquoise / teal colors, you would love this.

Accessories: Pieces Jorie Shop Ring (the starfish) via ASOS. Forever 21 Floral Butterfly Ring Set in Peach / Ivory (the stackables).
