I have to start this post by saying – if you love green, and you love green polish, and you don’t already own this polish, you are SERIOUSLY missing out!! This is honestly one of the most stunning green polishes I have ever come across… it’s zoomed right up to my very top favourite greens… EVER!! Anyway, if my introduction wasn’t enthusiastic enough for you, I did include some pictures, just incase
The photos really really do not lie – Running in Circles really is this vibrant and reflective and bright, maybe even more so! It’s so rich and eyecatching… it’s like my perfect perfect green. I’ll try and stop gushing though…! It’s a lovely glass-fleck green with hints of yellow reflects. In the bottle it has a blue/purple duochrome shift but I really couldn’t see this on the nail at all. Everyone knows China Glaze does glass-fleck like no-one else but… WOW. If you are seeing my free edge in the photos, it really wasn’t visible in person, my camera seems to pick up light and dark quite well but my eyes aren’t quite so picky – the reflectiveness hides any VNL. Okay I need to get onto the application or I’ll start gushing again!
Running in Circles applies flawlessy – it’s opaque at 2 coats, it applies smoothly and evenly and any patchiness is covered in the second coat. It’s also so glossy that you really won’t need a topcoat, unless it’s for the sake of longevity. It does dry a tad slowly – kind of average for a China Glaze, but you can add a quick-dry topcoat to speed up the process.
China Glaze Running in Circles, along with other polishes from the Cirque du Soleil collection, the recent Avant Garde collection and many more, are available from beautybay.com for an exceptionally reasonable £6.95, with free worldwide delivery. Beauty Bay also sells OPI, Deborah Lippmann, Ciaté, Orly, Nubar, and many more brands, for highly competitive prices.
I adore this polish and I can’t quite believe that I nearly missed it in the blur of all the new releases. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to try it!
