China Glaze – Grape Juice

1 coat Seche Rebuild (base)
3 coats China Glaze – Grape Juice
1 coat INM – Out the Door (top coat)

I’m stoked for the Ravens game tonight even though it’s preseason because it’s the last preseason game which means the regular season is just around the corner. Yay!  I had to go purple for this occasion (as well as any occasion) and I chose an untried, Grape Juice.

Grape Juice is a shimmery, glass flecked, almost foil-y purple.  Very pretty! It’s darker in the picture than in real life but if you look at where the light hits it, that’s pretty accurate to what the polish looks like.  It goes on pretty sheer so 3 coats is necessary. I didn’t mind for such a pretty color though, especially since application and formula were grade A.

INM – Out the Door is a top coat that I’m trying to see can replace Seche Vite.  No, it can’t.  This mani would have had a bunch of nicks and bumps had I not left it alone for over an hour and a half.    Aaand it’s not as shiny.  But it serves its purpose as a top coat and if you have the patience, maybe you’re about to watch a movie or something? it would work ok…
