Vitamins C and E protect skin from free radical damage, while SPF 15 helps prevent sun damage."

Our Nail Polish Raves - China Glaze, Butter & Sante

Our Nail Polish Raves

China Glaze is a professional-level nail enamel made with a special balance of polymers and resins that combine to create a nail lacquer that is long lasting, chip-resistant and resistant to colour and shine fading. Will not thicken in the bottle, no thinners necessary. We love the unique colours that China Glaze offers, and the fact that it is a lacquer. It is long-lasting, even better than OPI. On the flipside it dried in a matte finish in some shades.
