REQUESTED: swatch and review: China Glaze Dorothy Who?

China Glazes Dorothy who?

China Glazes Dorothy Who? ($8.00 for 0.5 fl oz.) is a blue and silver glitter in a blue jelly base. Its is extremly pretty and gets you lots of compliments. This polish came out with the wizard of ooh ahz collection and the returns collection. I've heard that this is hard to find and alot of people search for it, but I personally can get alot of them, maybe its just where I shop or the fact I live in Canada, who knows. This polish is for someone who wants make a statement with their nails, or for those who love sparkly nail polishes. This one gets peoples attention theres no doubt about it.

The application of this polish was not like other china glaze polishes, and I was a little dissapointed. The consistancy was just to thin and when you put it on it would run to the outside of your nail. Maybe I just got a little to much on the nail, but I did have some issues with that. Another issue is that this polish needs about three to four coats to cover so that your nail line doesnt show when you hold it up to the light. Personally that doesnt bother me so I only did two coats but others might have problems with that.

The wear is fine, I could last about 5 days on my real nails with topcoat and basecoat. I think the glitter helps it stay put as well. The polish is really really thin, and I didnt experiance any bubbling. I love this color. Its a glitter so its on the harder side to take off.

Are my pictures better, if so should I re-swatch some of my other nail polishes that I have done in the past? Please let me know I love feedback. Also its a celebration as my blog has been indexed and cached by google, I think thats pretty big seeing as Im getting lots more people now from google searches!



  1. Thank you! <3 As for the pictures, I take great care in taking color accurate and crisp pictures and I think natural light with the macro setting in camera works best. I only use flash when I'm photographing holographic polishes to bring out the linear rainbows.

  2. No problem =) Thanks for the tips, I so far havent done any holos so we will see how that goes. I normally use natural light, although sometimes I have a lack of that since its winter here ick.

  3. I really like that colour! Maybe if you wear an opaque blue nail polish first, you'll only need one or two coats for complete coverage.

  4. Most likely that will help, I personally dont mind the tip of the nail when held up to the light to be another color but some people hate that =)

  5. Nice review!.
    Looks very pretty on you.
