I hate giving a bad review of something, but I had higher expectations for this. I LOVE this line of polishes.
So I gave this a try at first on my thumbnail, and it was very watery and thin. I thought maybe I just needed to shake it up. I did that - lots of vigorous shaking. Then I did a full on swatch. This was four coats! I like jellies and I don't mind VNL but I really, really don't like the way this came out.
Let's have a look, and then I have a couple of comparisons to discuss with you.
See how watery that looks? And the glitter looks sparse and scattered even after four coats. I let each coat dry so I wouldn't get bald spots - that's not the problem.
I have two China Glaze comparisons for you. I was told that Pumpkin Spice was a dupe for China Glaze Fortune Teller. It's not remotely close! Then there was buzz it was a dupe for China Glaze Ick-A-Body, from last year's Halloween collection. It's not, but it's going on a similar idea. First of all, Ick-A-Body has an olive green base, and the glitter is much less sparse. It seems more bright than Pumpkin Spice's glitter. Have a look, below - I have Fortune Teller on my ring finger and Ick-A-Body on my pinkie. Sorry for the quick swatches, I know they're a tad messy.
Yeah, so no dead on dupes there. Was my bottle of Pumpkin Spice just a fluke, guys? Anyone tried theirs out yet??
