China Glaze - Deviantly Daring

This is another from the untrieds. I found it recently at Marshalls. Perfect summery beach colour. :)

More after the jump!
China Glaze describes this shade as a, "peacock teal". It was part of the 2012 Bohemian Collection. In the bottle it's a very metallic duochrome blue/green/gold. On the nail it's more of an almost-mirror-ish teal -- not such a strong duochrome. It's still super pretty. It reminds me of Julep's "Phoebe" but this one has a lot more going on.

The formula was awesome. Not such a fan of China Glaze brushes (they're skinny) but it does help to get into the tighter spaces (I have small nail beds). Cleanup was effortless. I used Duri 2 as a base coat and Seche Vite as a topcoat. Oh, and 2 coats of this polish.

Overall, I really love this polish! This is the only one I have from the Bohemian Collection but I'm interested in getting more!

I purchased this polish for myself. I just checked the Nail Polish Canada website and this shade is available and in stock. I'm sure it can be purchased from other retailers as well.


  1. I was just thinking the same thing about the China Glaze brushes last night when I was putting on Spontaneous (it was a "spontaneous" decision ;) .. haha I crack myself up!). I have narrow nail beds and find the the OPI brushes are too wide, especially for my pinkies, but I would rather that than the super skinny brushes of China Glaze.
    This is a really pretty colour! I had Unpredictable from the same collection, but for some reason duo/multichromes just aren't for me and I got rid of it. I think I like this one a little better :)

    1. It's weird, this one *looks* duochrome in the bottle but on the nail it's more of a solid teal chrome. I've had it on for 2 days and haven't seen it shift (and I've been wiggling my nails around in all kinds of light, definitely not a duochrome!). It's a pretty colour though! Unpredictable is the other one from the collection I was thinking about getting. :) I think my fav duochrome ever is Enchanted Polish "Magical Mystery Tour" (over black), when I put it on I just want to stare at it and wiggle my fingers around like I'm a crazy stoner chick! :p
