China Glaze C-c-courage


C-c-courage was the first China Glaze that I used, I got it with my first online order and I loved it. After some boring drugstore polishes in minibottles without names, and with less good application this was a big difference!
So I used it quite a lot at start, but quickly gathered more polishes and used those instead. Today I wanted to see if I still love it as much as I did back then, but unfortunately I'm a bit more picky when it comes to polish now, lol.

I used 3 coats, the application was ok but I could notice it's a bit older already. The drying time was a bit slower than I'd like, and the grittyness, oh boy >.< I used 2 coats of Seche Vite, and it still isn't so smooth.
I remember I used 2 coats of C-c-courage back then, and that was fine (and less gritty) but now it needed 3.
This blue-purple color is still nice and sparkly, but next time I'll see if I can get away with 2 slightly thicker coats to make it smoother. Luckily it doesn't look as bumpy as the macro option of my camera sees it though!

I was so happy with this polish back then, but I do feel kinda silly for going "aww memories :)" over a bottle of polish, lol. But I think you guys will understand :P What was your first polish that was more special?

As you can see the color varies on my pictures, it does a bit irl as well but it didn't help that cameras and purples usually aren't such a great combo. It's a bit less blue irl.

Have a nice day :)
