China Glaze Velvet Bow

Do you ever have cravings for random colors that you typically don't gravitate towards? I do love reds, but for some reason I was in that dire state of needing this China Glaze polish. I don't know why. The deep red was really appealing to me. It just seemed like the perfect winter polish.

Velvet Bow
Velvet Bow is a deep vampy red jelly.

I'm glad I got this. My dire need was warranted. I know it's not a standout color by any means, but I love it. It's so rich, strangely enough I do not think I have many shades like this. This is a dupe to Revlon Vixen, however, if you have Revlon Vixen you know that formula is the utterly atrocious. This formula is so much better. If you have Vixen, I think this would be a worthwhile purchase to save you from the frustration of the Revlon polish.

Happy Tuesday!

  3. I know what you mean. I have so many reads so I don't really get a red lemming, but I had one really badly for a quick-dry Revlon polish yesterday.

  9. I've never had an issue with my bottle of Vixen.  It needs thinner now but it's 10 years old or so.

  10. I actually went BACK and nabbed this one, because I wanted it so much. I don't really crave reds but I do love a dark vampy red, and this one is perfect! It looks great on you, Steph.

  18. You may have a different formulation since yours is older. I know a few people who have gotten one in the past few years the formula stinks. :-/
