Girly Gradient Nail Art with EverGlaze by China Glaze

EverGlaze Gradient Nail Art by @chalkboardnails

This spring, China Glaze throws their hat into the ring of longwearing polish systems, joining the ranks of lines like CND's Vinylux and Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel. These systems are set apart by claims of gel-like wear and shine, without the need to cure in a lamp or the lengthy removal process. China Glaze's EverGlaze system brings CG's signature bold colors and fun finishes among more traditional color choices, ensuring that there's a shade for every type of gal.

The system includes a nail prep solution, the range of colors, and the EverGlaze Active Top Coat. The prep solution is similar to a nail dehydrator, and it is meant to remove dirt and oils from your nail plate before polishing. This helps the polish stick longer! The Active Top Coat comes in a UV protected bottle.

For this nail art, I used:
EverGlaze Case of the Mondaze
EverGlaze Adrenaline Rush
EverGlaze A Toast to You
EverGlaze Back to Black

Case of the Mondaze is actually a gorgeous cobalt blue, but when I sponged it over Adrenaline Rush in my gradient, it turned purple! A happy accident, I say!

The Active Top Coat is thick and shiny, dries quickly, and doesn't smear nail art. It's a winner, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it (I can be very picky with top coats, you know).

Unfortunately, I'm unable to do a wear test of my own at this time -- nail school is tough on polish, and even my full-fledged lamp cured gels don't hold up sometimes!

  3. Great to hear mention of nail school! I'll bet it's pretty much all-absorbing? How cool that the cobalt blue turned purple. I love the wear time from the CND VinylLux line but, for some reason, don't think of these cured-by-natural-sunlight polishes as lacquers that can be played with. I've only used them to just paint my nails and that's it. I'll have to try some sponging and other nail art myself. Thanks for showing me it can be done. :) May I ask: is the metallic polish you're wearing gold or silver? Oh...also...what would be the result if a "regular" polish was used in a mani with the EverGlaze? For instance, if the base color was from the EverGlaze line and the sponged color was a non-EverGlaze China Glaze polish, with the base and top coats being from the EverGlaze line...would it cure both polishes with sunlight and last just as long as if only EverGlaze polishes were used? Thanks, Sarah...I appreciate any information you have time to give. :)

  6. It's a gold! I am not sure what would happen if you mixed in a "regular" polish, though I imagine having a base of the longwearing polish would increase your odds of a favorable result. I think the topcoat is the only UV activated product, which is why it's the only one in the blacked out UV protected bottle, so maybe it would work fine?

  9. Interesting polishes! I've never tried any of these long-wear-non-gel-polish types, I never really wear my manicures very long anyway ;) But I love the look you created with these!

  10. This design is such a twist on the classic ombre look, I love how bold it is!
