I don’t do nail polish reviews often. I’m a BAD nail biter, and have genetically TINY nail beds to begin with. It’s just as well, knowing the cost of my OTHER cosmetic obsessions….
I fell in LOVE with Lubu heels, seeing the nail sample—dark burgundy base, with bright red sparkle… sultry and vampy…… I thought it looked a bit darker in jar, but that made a degree of sense. Sadly, it actually IS that dark, and the red sparkle barely comes through. I’ve tried layering other glittery polishes over it to get the effect I want, but it’s just not the same.
China Glaze makes a pretty sturdy nail polish. I usually see chips after a week, though that depends on how many things I have done with my hands that week.
This polish is not particularly opaque. I needed two coats, and still noticed some streakiness. If you add a third coat, it’ll chip off MUCH sooner. So just be careful in application, to get the best out of Lubu heels! It’s definitely a fun winter color, and can be a bit more unique than true-red(though I love that to!)
