China Glaze Tease

On my last trip to San Antonio, my salon manicurist (who does great pedicures), told me about a nail supply store in the middle of nowhere, so I went to check it out.  It was like I died and went to Heaven - I wish I had taken pictures.  The small shop was stuffed full of nail polish - everything from OPI to China Glaze... and oh the China Glaze.  They had so many bottles of old polish (dusties) but the newest items looked to be the Up & Away, and they didn't have many bottles of it.  I grabbed this bottle because I'm a sucker for blue flashed whites but it wasn't until I got outside that I realized this was a sheer.  China Glaze Tease is from the Blush collection and is not big 3 free, but I don't mind that.  However, if you're looking for a big 3 free polish, I do believe this is a dead on dupe for their color Rainbow.  I'll have to comparison sometime.

I used a base of Seche Natural, 3 coats of Tease and a top coat of Seche Vite.  The color is very sheer but as you can see in the sun, you do get the blue flash.  The formula on this was great - not runny or thick despite the original layer of dust on my bottle.

If you catch the light properly, you can see all the blue flash.  However, if you angle your nails, you get this:
A whole lotta nothing.  However, I bet this would look great over black, or really it's a nice understated color - might go well as a french manicure too.

In the shade, you also get that blue flash.
