China Glaze’s Deviantly Daring

There's a very faint hint of duochrome in this polish - the color changes from a green-blue in the center to a blue-green on the edges. The polish does show brushstrokes a bit, though. Other than that, the texture is a bit roughened, similar to China Glaze's Icicle. The polish is fairly durable, but still a tiny bit less durable than non-metallic China Glaze polishes. I've tried using a couple of top coats, and they all mute the duochrome effects…which means that, on this one, any top coat renders it a non-duochrome polish.

I might try using this in nail stamping on top of a charcoal-grey or black polish. I don't think that I'd get any duochrome effects, because I'd have to use a top coat; but I would end up with a very striking metallic medium-deep turquoise-green pattern.
