China Glaze ~ Riveting

China Glaze ~ Riveting
Red-orange jelly packed with golden shimmer

Riveting is from China Glaze’s Hunger Games Collection from spring 2012, way before I developed a taste for orange polishes. That’s why I only bought it recently, and wow, this is a beautiful orange!

It’s very opaque for a jelly and it covered in two very easy coats. The drying time was really good.

The shimmer in this makes it look as if it’s glowing! This is two coats and no topcoat taken in the sunshine:

This second picture is taken in the light box and is colour accurate. I simply love the glow of this polish.

I made a water spotted mani out of it. I used China Glaze’s Liquid Leather for the purpose and a hand sanitizer in a spray bottle.

This is the final mani including a layer of topcoat:

These two last pictures are taken in the sun.

I love this orange and I think it goes perfectly well with black.
Get this before it’s too late. It’s already more expensive on ebay, where I usually buy my China Glazes.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Glowing shimmer
Overall impression: Great orange colour, great formula, no issues at all.
Buy again: Yes
