China Glaze – Ravishing, Dahling
Posted by manicuremania on November 4, 2009
Ravishing, Dahling is easily in my top 5 favorite polishes. I love to say the name! AND I LOVE JELLIES! I don’t even know why, maybe just because they’re kind of rare? By the way, why are jellies unusual? Because they take a zillion coats and most people (except bloggers/polish obsessors) don’t like the sheerness maybe? Also, why do all jellies seem to be red? I already have a red! Anyway, this is the one sad lonely jelly in my collection. I think it’s also the only polish I’ve worn more than once since I started buying polish like crazy and started this blog – this is the THIRD TIME I’ve worn it since then!!!! It’s been featured a couple of times on this blog before – I used it for my half-moon manicure.
I’m terribly worried about taking it off though. I’m convinced that most of my nail staining is from this particular polish – last time I wore it my nails were NOTICEABLY yellower upon removing it, even with my super careful application of two coats of basecoat!
Hey I just had a thought. All the nail bloggers seem to complain that their nails get yellow even though they religiously use basecoat, right? And I’d say most bloggers use Seche. And you know how Seche claims that their topcoat does some sort of bonding thing all the way through all the polish layers? I wonder how much truth there is to that – maybe the Seche is zapping through our basecoats and yellowing our nails?
OK, back on topic. I love jellies, I love Ravishing, Dahling, here have some pictures!
