Reivew: China Glaze “Lubu Heels” Nail polish

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!)

    Oh, previous commenter is being fussy. I would’ve tried to layer it over an opaque black base…hmm.

      Hmm. Haven’t had a good opaque black since I was 15. I may have to try that. I’d been planning on forwarding it to a friend. I’m not much of a nail art person anyways—between my very active job, and genetically small/fragile nail beds, nail art REALLY doesn’t work on me. Thanks!
