NOTD - China Glaze Cherry Pie

"She's my Cherry Pie! Cool drink of water such a sweet surprise... "

Here's an overcast image... color looks slightly different

Here's another one from the China Glaze Summer Days collection. Sorry about the overcast. I may try to take a better picture, maybe an indoor picture, later.

The Color: The color is pretty obnoxious, but not in a bad way. It's like a hot-pink-orangy thing. My first thought was that it was similar to MAC Vegas Volt lipstick in concentrated polish form. The shimmer in this is hot pink and silver. It is not a color I'd wear normally. It's like the bastard child of Raspberry Festival and Orange Marmalade.

The Texture: Smooth on the nail. Jelly with shimmer. It was a little more pigmented than Orange Marmalade.

The Wear: Much better than Orange Marmalade. I think the Orly Bonder I used with this one made a difference over the OPI. So I'm saying it now - if you're going to wear these, make sure you're using a sticky base coat!

The Bottom Line: If you like the color, get it. It's different. But I wish China Glaze had made a "lemon drop" instead of this color.
