China Glaze Dorothy Who?

Hi all!

Already two days ahead in August.. Whew, time really goes by quickly! Today I have a polish for you that many nail ladies loved from the beginning, but it was in my Helmer for over 6 months before I finally decided to try it. Yikes! Anyway, I tried it and have to admit I was a little disappointed. I will explain why, let's take a look at the pictures first :)

Dorothy Who? is a gorgeous medium blue glittery polish. It's not truly glitter since it's not bumpy and it appears that the glitters sunk a little in the blue base, so I'd say this is a lighter blue glitter sunk in a blue jelly base. Awesome color, but the opacity of this polish has me worried. It took me five coats to get to this but I still can see a little visible nail line.

Application was easy, the China Glaze brush is a little on the thin side but that's an advantage when you're working with jellylike finishes. Dryingtime was alright.

I did a little konad with a design that I haven't used before:

The silver stamping gives Dorothy Who even more depth! I like it!

What do you think of Dorothy Who? How many coats do you need for opacity? *worried*

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I think this is kind of simular to china glaze blue sparrow. That one took me 4 layers, and ik looks almost the same colour but with different glitter.
    And jelly always needs many coats!

    The konad is really pretty!!


  2. That looks really pretty!
    But 5 coats? Woah.
    I never went past 3 coats.
    The color is lovely though.
    I'm not the biggest fan of glitter.

  3. This looks gorgeous, but 5 coats seems like a bit much. I'm not sure I'd be patient enough to slather that much on. :)

  4. love the konad on the blue...5 layers wow...think I would go mad by 4 ;)

  5. Kaleigh Thank you! I don't own that one so I don't know how the two of them compare. I love the look of Dorothy Who? but I hate the fact that I need five coats..

    Anh thanks :) I usually don't do 5 coats but I wanted this one to be opaque when I took pics.. And I still didn't succeed with 5 coats. Bummer!

    Zara Thanks! Lol it's a bit much, normally I don't have the patience either..

    Martje thank you :) I love the contrast - Millennium works great with a lot of base colors and designs.

    I still think I have an 'off' bottle, since most people I know only need 3 coats.. :(

  6. I love that konad you did! I LOVE Dorothy Who? but I usually put 2 coats over something else, like a blue cream.
