China Glaze - Gothic Lolita


Hi guys! This China Glaze post is my first one featuring a polish from the Electro Pop collection. Since swatches of the collection can already be widely found on the web, I decided to post each polish seperately with the nail art I made with it. This way I can show you a little extra something besides the polish itself. :) Let's see some purple awesomeness then!
Gothic Lolita, my favorite of the collection, is a slightly dusty, medium purple. The formula of this creme was a tad thick but still I had no problems with the application. I was amazed by the opacity of this polish, it was almost a one-coater but I did two for complete coverage. (It is strange however, how my bottle of Gothic Lolita covers so well while I read others needed three coats.) What makes this polish so special, without a doubt is the subtle blue and pink shimmer. It's not that visible from a 'normal' distance, but it definitely gives everything more depth.
For the nail art I went for my good old black stripes, made with my trusty striper Ink from China Glaze, can't get enough of stripes! ;-) What do you think of it?

This product was sent to me for review.

  21. Lovely! And speaking of Gothic Lolita, I just tried mine too, for the first time, and happened to use it for a... ta-dah... cloud manicure :D You can see it here if you like: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7058/6791899348_e9f8800538.jpg

    Thank you so much for the tutorial, I love it and was sooo happy with my first cloud manicure :D Based on this cloud manicure I'd say my Gothic Lolita won't need three coats either, two will surely be enough. That has been the case for all my ElectroPop polishes (Sweet Hook, Electric Beat, Wicked Style, Kinetic Candy) and I've been really pleased with them :)
