China Glaze’s Starboard

One coat doesn't quite give either even or full coverage; but two coats covers nicely. The shade is like the springier version of Zoya's Gemma, but without the slight blue flash. Starboard is a brighter green, but it's got some olive undertones to it. Like the other shades from this collection, it spreads well with no brush strokes or bald spots.

I haven't compared this to OPI's Jade is the New Black. I suspect that they'll be close, but I think that JITNB will be a little cooler.

Again, if you want this polish to be thicker, just refrigerate it for 24 hours before you do your manicure and it will thicken up nicely.
