Rounding out the three China Glaze Avant Garden polishes I first purchased and have worn right away is Dandy Lyin Around. I own a handful of white polishes that I will use for full manis (this does not include the stark whites I own and use for stamping, nail art, French tips, etc), each white I own is special in it's own way and Dandy Lyin' Around is no exception.
This beautiful white polish has a shimmery sheen that reminds me of snow reflecting the light on a bright, sunny winter day. I have another glistening snow polish from China Glaze named Frosty, which is similar but not a dupe. Frosty has larger glass flecks of shimmer, where as DLA has a very fine and even distribution of glass flecks they look similar to a shimmer from a distance.
I was hoping it was a close dupe to another China Glaze favorite, White Kwik Silver, which is a long gone hard to find, you can see a swatch here.
The formula was alright, not too thick and not too thin, actually pretty good fr a while polish. There was some initial streaking on the first and second coat, so I added some thinner to the bottle before applying a final third coat. I am happy with the final look :)
