China Glaze Creative Fantasy

Good morning, dear readers! :D

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas!! :D

Today I have a swatch of China Glaze Creative Fantasy, which is a gorgeous purple jelly from their Cirque du Soleil collection.

At first I had some issues with the formula.  After applying the first coat of polish, the second coat dragged what was beneath it.  At three coats it was still streaky.  But at four coats (thin ones), it looked gorgeous! :D  The polish has an interesting semi-matte rubber-type finish, so I took photos with and without top coat to show you.

Without top coat:

With top coat (China Glaze Fast Forward):

As you can see it is still sheer at four coats, and you can see the nail line.  However, I don't mind that, as I find it makes jelly polishes look squishy and delicious. :)

What do you think of Creative Fantasy?  Have you picked up any colours from the Cirque du Soleil collection?

Have a wonderful day!

  4. Wow, there really is a big difference with and without top coat! The formula sounds like a pain to work with, but the colour is so, so gorgeous. I love that deep, squishy finish!

  5. I really like that purple with topcoat-- it's gorgeous! Too bad about the formula, but I still want it, haha!
