NOTD: China Glaze - Liquid Leather and Platinum Silver

As promised, I'm starting to swatch the polishes I got in the China Glaze Unforgettable Set.
Below is Liquid Leather and Platinum Silver. Liquid Leather is the sheerest, messiest black polish I've ever used! This is 4 coats!! To cover the streaks I used China Glaze Magic Matte over it and then used Platinum Silver and Konad Plate m51 to stamp the flowers. And then it still didn't look good so I used another coat of Magic Matte. Which was probably a mistake since I like the contrast of matte and glossy. Ugh this was just one of those manis that you keep messing with to try and make it look good and it just gets worse and worse lol.

Notice the sheerness next to my cuticle on my thumb and ring finger nail???

China Glaze is by far, hands down, my favorite nail polish brand. But Liquid Leather is a just a plain old mess. I don't recommend it unless you've got lots of time on your hands to apply multiple coats and you don't mind waiting around for it to dry. *Sigh* I want to believe it was just a bad bottle! Anyone else have issues with it?


  1. Makes me glad I didn't pick this one up. I have Orly Goth (black with silver stuff) and it's my go-to for black polish. The Konad and matte overtop camos the messiness of Liquid Leather quite nicely!

  2. Oh, and I meant to tell you that the cleanup on Zoya's Charla wasn't bad. The glitter particles are so small, it came right off with pure acetone. I did have to do a second cleanup because I had fine glitter all over my fingers, but it definitely would not stop me from wearing over and over and over again!

  3. Nice!! Charla is now on my "to buy" list :D
