China Glaze Knotty

China Glaze Knotty was released in 2011 as part of the Anchors Away collection. It’s pretty unique, being a glass-fleck nude beige polish.

I used three coats, the last one thick, since it’s a fairly sheer polish, and I felt like it needed all three coats. The drying time was long (it was still dentable for several hours even with quick-dry top coat), which isn’t surprising given the number and thickness of coats I used. These photos were taken before I added the top coat.

The beige is neutral-to-yellow in its undertones, and I find it almost gives me a “mannequin-hands” look except for the glass fleck shimmer! It’s a really pretty, subtle polish, and I think it’s worth the long dry time! I just won’t be wearing it on days that I’m trying to get a mani done quickly! 😉

  1. That is really, really beautiful! I was about to buy it myself a while ago, I guess I have to now 🙂

  2. I like this one – bought it when the collection first came out and was not sold at Sally’s which really upset me…I am thinking this might be one of the couple from the full collection that did not eventually come to Sally’s classic wall. Looks nice on your hands/nails.

  3. I’d rather stronger colors but this one is really chic. Well, it ain’t nice when the polishes needs three coats to be ok but the outcome is really gorgeous.
    Rock Ur Nails!
