NOTD: China Glaze Mimosa's Before Mani's


Two coats of China Glaze Mimosa's Before Mani's from the Avant Garden Collection. Peach-Leaning Coral with Subtle Shimmer.

Ladies, I am in L-O-V-E! Not just with the name {seriously, how could you resist?}; but with the color itself. I am a sucker {with a capital S} for coral polishes, but Mimosa's Before Mani's completely takes. the. cake.

Formula-wise this is crazy good - almost one-coat territory, high-shine, easy to work with, and long-lasting. Four days into the mani, even after high-volumes of baking and texting, my nails looked fresh and perfect {this is with top coat, mind you}. Six days in, and all that showed was a bit of tip-wear.

Conclusion? New summer staple alert - for manis and pedis!

Thank you for the detailed review! I would definitely buy this after hearing the wonderful things you had to say.

I just took my color off and am giving my nails a day or two to breathe before I pick something new :)

I really like coral polishes as well, especially during this season! And hello, mimosas are always on my mind in the summer.

Gorgeous nail's color! xoxo

LOVE this color! SO good to read about China Glaze being a good formula. I have always been skeptical based on the name, sounded cheap to me plus it was always just as much as other known names to me. I'll have to try it! Pretty!
