China Glaze Grape Pop is a polish I’ve been wanting for a long time. It’s not a very uncommon color. If you have OPI Funky Dunkey, Orly Charged Up or RBL Mismas you probably won’t be needing this, as they are very similar. I’ve also added a bit of bling to the mani by painting a coat of INM Northern Lights hologram top coat on the ring finger (you can see both these polishes in my last haul).
Grape Pop is a medium purple, similar to grapes, as the name states. It has a lot of dupes or very similar colors (see above), but I think it’s a staple color that everyone should have in their collection.
The polish has the regular China Glaze formula and was very easy to apply. I used 2 coats. It could be opaque in only one, depending on how thick your coats are and how carefull you are. The brush is medium width, but has a very long stem so you have to be carefull because while applying, drops of polish come down from the stem and could ruin your nail.
I wore this for 5 days and had some minor chips on the 4th day of wear. Considering that I didn’t put any base coat under it and put my nails under a lot of stress in these days, this polish has a pretty good wear time.

I just love this color and will be wearing it a lot this fall (even if it’s a spring color). And of course love the formula of China Glaze too, so no issues there.
