NOTE 03/25/2013: I will no longer be purchasing or reviewing any new China Glaze products, aside from the two that I have in the publishing queue. All previously-published posts will remain up. Info & links of interest
This is kind of the color I'd hoped Beachy Keen would be. This formula seems a bit thinner than other China Glaze polishes that I've used. Still, it's nicely opaque and provides good coverage. One coat was almost - almost - enough for full, even, totally opaque coverage. There was just a hint of visible nail line when the nail was backlit. Spreadability was good - possibly due to the consistency. I suspect that if I used this for a manicure without buffing my nails for a few weeks beforehand, it would nicely cover all those flaws and ridges. (It almost evens out my right thumbnail, which is and has always been marked by some fairly pronounced dents. I don't know where they came from, but they don't grow out.)
Most of the China Glaze colors I've gotten have been shimmers, sparkles, metallics, or holographics; so I don't know if this relatively thin consistency is standard for China Glaze cremes. I wish these cremes were just a tiny bit thicker. The coverage and pigmentation levels were good, though, so that's a plus. I don't know that I'll be able to use these as nail stamping polishes because they're so watery - though I had hopes that I'd be able to do just that.
