China Glaze’s Xtreme Thrash

This is almost a deep coral color, but it's also very vibrant. When I bought the colors in this collection I had hopes that I could use them as nail stamping shades. Unfortunately, many of them are just too watery to work with Konad or other nail stamping plates.

One coat was even, but rather thin and semisheer. Two coats made it fully opaque. This color didn't show the brushstrokes as much as a few of the others in this collection (Avalanche, Black Diamond). Since one coat was semisheer and yet covered evenly, I may try using this as a layering color with something dark.
