Polish - China Glaze X - The BEST Go-to Near Black Ever!

I was looking through my drawers this past week and trying to find something I haven't featured on here yet. I was shocked to find I hadn't ever actually reviewed one of my favorite near-blacks: China Glaze X!




I think this polish came out in 2007, about the time where everyone decided they were going to do near-blacks. It captured my heart instantly and I consider it a must have polish.

Color
Burgundy red with copper undertones in a black base. The pictures I have here are much more red than the polish actually appears without sunlight and a direct flash. On the nail sometimes it looks like a warm black if you're not up close.


Application
I chose three coats this time. I've been able to apply it with two. But I wanted the color to be really rich.

Wear
Over Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and topped with Seche Vite it wore very well (for me). Minimal chips until I removed it two nights later.

Bottom Line
Like I said, I consider it a Must Have. There are similar colors out there now, but I just love this one!
