Rare & Radiant

Here is the second polish I picked up from China Glaze’s New Bohemian Luster Chrome collection, Rare & Radiant.

This polish shifts between gold and green – I found that the more direct the light (full sun, full flash) the more it looked like a gold chrome.

The formula is similar to Unpredictable, in that it is easy to apply and leaves you with some faint brushstrokes.  I applied three thin coats of R&R for the mani below, but I’m sure it would be opaque after two ‘normal’ coats.  I wore it for two days before switching to another polish, and those two days were perfect – no chips, no tip wear.

There are many polishes similar to Rare & Radiant, including…

  • Chanel Peridot
  • GAP Gold Rush
  • OPI Just Spotted the Lizard
  • Jessica Iridescent Eye

 

These first three photos were taken in indirect natural light:
