China Glaze ~ I’d Melt for You



China Glaze ~ I’d Melt for You
Silver Chrome

I’d Melt for You is from the Twinkle Collection from Christmas 2014. I’d never thought I’d wear polishes like this silver chrome, but I must admit that it’s amazing!

The formula is good, perhaps a bit thick, but I quite like that. I had no problems with application whatsoever and the polish dries really fast. I used OPI’s Nail Envy as my basecoat and didn’t experience any problems with dragging or bald spots. So far, so good. I used two coats for this mani, although I think one might have been enough, but - since this polish reveals all little irregularities on your nails, you might want to use two coats like me, to sort of even things out a little bit.

I’d Melt for You is super shiny, so shiny it made my camera freak out a little bit. Here’s the best I could do:


This is a flash picture. Still freaking the camera out, haha!


I wore this for half a day before I added more. I went hunting for old, forgotten polishes in the drawers, and ended up with three old Essence polishes: Hard to Resist, a dark blue shimmer, Glamorous Life, a cherry red shimmer and Space Queen, iridescent glitter in a clear base. I dry brushed the polishes on: First the blue and then the cherry red. When that was dry I applied a layer of the iridescent glitter.

Here’s my final mani:


I quite like this!


And the mandatory flash picture – that makes the camera freak out one last time, haha! 


Here are the pretty polishes lined up: 



I considered stamping over this, but decided against it. I liked it as it was after all. Do you like this?


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Chrome
Overall impression: I am quite impressed by this polish, it’s so easy to work with. Perhaps it’s equivalent to OPI’s Push and Shove. I can’t compare, since I don’t own Push and Shove.
Buy again: Yes

    1. It is better with two coats, I think, so everything gets evened out :) So yes, I agree :)
