China Glaze - Lighthouse


(This is a scheduled post, I'm on vacation!)

Hello readers! For this post I'd like to show you China Glaze Lighthouse from this year's spring collection Anchors Away, this bottle was kindly sent to me for review by China Glaze. Lighthouse is a glass fleck shimmer in a sheer yellow base. I swatched it before on one nail, but to get it somewhere near opaque, I had to apply at least four coats, so pictured is only one coat over two layers of Color Club Almost Famous. The formula was perfect, not too thick or thin, just right in the middel, leaving a smooth, sparkly finish, which reminds me of China Glaze Whitecap (from the same collection). Though Lighthouse is very sheer, the yellow base definitely shows, even after just one coat, but unfortunately it's not the kind of yellow I love. On it's own it looks too warm and too muted, I just don't like it on my skintone, especially combined with the subtle yet visible nail line after too many coats of polish. But when Lighthouse is added over a fresh, bright yellow like Almost Famous, it looks so delicious. Love! What do you think of Lighthouse?

  2. very pretty. I just got CG solar power and lighthouse seems similar, except the glass flecks of course. I prefer the flecks in lighthouse, but solar power applies easier in two thick coats or three thin ones :)
