China Glaze 'Whirled Away'

Once again here is another post I'm integrating from Facebook

Check out the review after the jump!

   China Glaze Whirled Away is a glitter top coat filled with large white hexagons, medium black hexagons, and black bars in a clear base. They were matte glitters which I personally like because most of my glitter collection consists of foil or super shiny glitter. Here I used two coats. I felt as if I had to fish out the shapes and since there are more black than white, I felt it was hard to fish out the large white hexagons. The dry time compared to other glitter top coats was good. I did not pack on a lot of the clear base, so that definitely helped decrease the dry time.

   As the undies for this manicure I used Sally Hansen Pumping Iron, which is a metallic silver nail polish. It was opaque in 2 generous coats. The dry time was okay, seeing as it took about five to six minutes a coat.

 I topped it off with a matte top coat, NYC Matte Me Crazy, and I was not as impressed as I thought I would be. Matte Me Crazy, although matte, still has some shine to it. It seems almost waxy.  I found it at Wal-Mart for $1.92, so I cannot complain, but I prefer Essie Matte About You because it will give your nails a completely matte look.
