China Glaze Beauty Within is one of the nail polishes I received a couple of weeks ago from China Glaze Romania and part of China Glaze United In Purpose Collection (info & photos). Together with this shade I also received another two nail colors which I already swatched in a previous post so full reviews will soon follow but until then if you are interested to meet them you can check out my preview of China Glaze United & Pearls of Wisdom nail polishes.

China Glaze Beauty Within nail lacquer (14 ml/ 0.5 fl oz for 24.00 Lei/ $8.00) is bright pink with blue undertones very close to a neon pink which dries to a soft matte finish. The formula is very different from a neon’s polish so it’s is a little bit creamy but very light. It looks opaque in one coat so layering the second coat it’s optional but I chose to apply it anyway to see the results. After the second nail polish coat I added one some of my nails one coat of Orly 3-in-1 Top Coat and Beauty Within look even more beautiful to me in a glossy luscious finish. You can decide to wear this color like it comes from the bottle but if you want to have super shiny finish and you don’t want to keep it matte then a top coat is a must. The application went flawlessly without pooling, bubbling or streaking and the polish dries quite fast.
I worn this color for exactly 4 days before I removed it and replace it with China Glaze United nail polish (upcoming review). The photos speak for themselves but as surprisingly as it might seem the polish resisted better without a top coat. On the nails I haven’t applied a top coat the color is still vibrant but a little bit more mattified due to soap, lotions and creams. Only on two of my nails you can notice minor tip wear while the others are almost intact.
On the other nails which received the protection of a top coat the color is still bright and shiny with minor tip wear but on my little finger the polish has chipped a little. I shall test this color sometimes with a different top coat and see how it behaves.
Overall I really enjoyed wearing China Glaze Beauty Within nail lacquer since it’s such a gorgeous pigmented pink shade and it’s also long lasting especially if you decide to wear it straight from the bottle without any top coat.
