Review: China Glaze Fortune Teller
Hola dudes and dudettes! How are you all on this fine Monday morning? I, myself, am doing rather well and am wanting to share the joy…but the sharing will come later. For now, let me introduce you to the most beautiful Halloween nail polish that has ever existed. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating just a bit since I’ve only started collecting nail polishes since late last year, but all the same, this color is truly GORGEOUS and has Halloween written all over it!
China Glaze Fortune Teller. Could this color be any more perfect for Halloween? It consists of a semi-sheer black base color with coppery-orange glitter. The glitter is actually all sorts of sizes and has both round and hexagonal shapes. I can officially say that this nail polish rocks my socks.
The only downfall to this color is that it is a Sally Beauty Supply exclusive, meaning you can only get it at Sally Beauty Supply. Sadly, when I was first attempting to get my hands on this, they were out of stock online. Now, when you try to search for it, the website won’t even register as having it at all. Luckily, my local Sally’s finally got their shipment in and I happened to walk in on the right day! Yay!
It only took me two good coats to get complete opacity of the black. Because of the glitter, the polish tends to dry with a bit of texture and can fill rough and bumpy. But to get a nice, smooth finish, just add a coat or two of a good top coat and you’re set. Now gaze in the awesomeness of this color.
On to the sharing part of this blog (other than this lovely review, haha). Have you tried searching all over but can’t seem to get your hands on your very own Fortune Teller? Want a chance to get it for free? Want a chance to get a great top coat and base coat as well? Well guess what? You’re in luck. I nabbed an extra Fortune Teller polish and figured I’d do a give away along with my favorite top and base coats from Seche Vite.
