China Glaze’s Adore

This is a gorgeous shade of turquoise!! And it's metallic! Too bad the spreadability is so bad. The brushstrokes were visible no matter how thin a coat I applied or how careful I was. That really sucked the life out of this polish. I *might* be able to get around this by doing a sponge or gradient manicure with this color; and it will work fine for nail stamping. It just won't work as a standalone manicure shade or the base shade for nail art.
