China Glaze Dandy Lyin' Around

Hi you guys! Happy weekend! It's been raining on and off today, so I'm huddled inside cleaning, watching tv, and blogging. Not bad for a weekend. :-)

I'm excited to have my picks from the China Glaze Avant Garden Collection to share with you over the next few days. Today, I'm starting off with Dandy Lyin' Around, a soft milky white with lots of silver shimmers.






The shimmers in here show up clearly on the nails and are so pretty! It gives an elegance and creaminess to the white, making it softer and easier to wear. The formula is workable, but not fabulous. It's streaky and a little thicker, which isn't helped by China Glaze's long and thin brush. It takes too many strokes to cover the nail, which results in some pooling and patchiness. What you see is three coats, and it's still a little streaky at that.

You can find Dandy Lyin' Around at your local nail salons and at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty for a retail price of $7 for 0.5 fl oz.

  3. Ahhh makes me feel like picking it up. Wish it would be more opaque though. Love the creamyness of the white and the shimmers!

    1. I'm glad you're liking this! I don't mind the lack of opaqueness - it keeps this white soft and wearable - as long as it's uniformly so. :-)

  4. I really appreciate your honest review! So many blogs gush over a product when it really isn't that great. I keep coming back to your blog because of your honesty! Thank you!

    1. It is a lovely color! Maybe the streakiness can be helped with a white undie, but I haven't tried that out yet. :-)

  6. Sucks that it's streaky. I am still getting it, though. It's too pretty to pass up. Haha.

  8. I can kind of see the problems with this polish but I still think this one looks gorgeous. Better to be used for nail art for me though because I don't want to end up painting too many layers.

  10. It reminds me somehow of my beloved Orly Au Champagne, which luckily doesn't cause application problems... Otherwise it's gorgeous!

  11. This is such a lovely shade of white and suits you so well!!! I think I will give it a pass though given the formula and the fact that I already own my share of tricky to apply shimmery white ;-) - Christine

  12. Oh yes!! This one has to get into my basket even though it's shimmery and I promised myself only the cremes...
    It's so pretty and elegant and perfect for everything!!!
