Watermelon rind

Hey everyone!
Yesterday Deborah showed you a pretty green, which sadly didn't apply all that great. The colour, however, is great so I thought I'd show you a polish that is similar, but easier to apply.
This is the old but very pretty Watermelon rind from China Glaze. It's not the most opaque polish, I needed 4 thin coats to get rid of vnl, but the pretty sparkle more than makes up for it. This polish is so jam-packed with shimmer that it almost has a foil finish, I love it!

What do you guys think? Pretty, or is 4 coats to get this colour not worth the trouble either?

  2. Why must you tease us with gorgeous but seriously flawed polish :P
    Its a nice colour but 4 coats is not good. Especially for such a well known brand. I haven't tried any china glaze yet. The formula on this would seriously put me off completely. Your nails are lovely though :P

  3. It's *very* beautiful, but four coats is at least one too many! :)

    Very pretty color! I think it's pretty enough to do four coats :-)

  11. I think 3-4 coats is totally worth it to get this lovely up to opaque. It's been in my collection for about 1 yr now. I really like it to get away from the more holiday green shades yet still stay in the sparkly greens.

  15. Beautiful! I bought this polish recently but haven't used it yet. I definitely should!
    And it always makes me laugh...have you ever seen a watermelon rind this color?

  16. Awwwwwwww.
    4 coats make me scared, maybe layered onto another colour...
    This is a gorgeous shade, though.
