Rare & Radiant (China Glaze)
From China Glaze's recent Bohemian Collection, this is Rare & Radiant (China Glaze), widely accepted to be a dupe for Peridot (Chanel). I didn't think I'd like it; I wasn't really that attracted to this collection from China Glaze despite what felt like duochrome fever from the polishsphere. In fact, I sort of bought it on a whim because it was on clearance at Sally's (btw the Wicked collection is being sold in a pack for $9.99 last I checked!) and picked it over Swanky Silk (China Glaze).
I'm glad I did because it really is quite lovely on the nails. It's a pretty frosty green with a clearly discernible dirty gold duochrome. Application was okay, I expected some sheerness, and two to three coats was good for opacity. It dried really quick and the shine didn't require topcoat to pop. All in all, good deal!
