Nearly every single time I went to type China Glaze Deviantly Daring, my fingers had a mind of their own and typed Deviant Darling!
This beauty is from the China Glaze New Bohemian Collection, and it’s a flashy teal. If it were a human, it would want to be the crazy naked person who runs across the pitch during a soccer game and then gets escorted away in handcuffs. Now that’s deviant!
I’m very grateful to have had a chance to wear all of the colours in the New Bohemian Collection. And out of all 6 hues, this one, Unpredictable, and Rare & Radiant are my favourites.

China Glaze Deviantly Daring Review
Deviantly Daring by China Glaze is the kind of teal that I love to wear because it’s not a shy violet. It provides a great contrast and pop of colour that I typically crave.
However, the name of the polish makes me laugh since I don’t see it as a particularly daring or deviant colour. Then again, I’m a nailphile, and my nails have run the gamut when it comes to polishes. So, for a lacquer snob like me, it takes something ridiculously mind-blowing for me to think it’s deviant…or daring. (Perhaps that’s why my fingers keep typing Deviant Darling instead. It’s something subconscious…)
There’s also a little bit of gold, however, it’s not very noticeable.
Deviantly Daring by China Glaze has a lustre-chrome and duochrome finish. It looks very metallic, so you get brush strokes. The shift of teal, blue, and green isn’t very strong, but it’s there. Mainly you’re going to see teal.
This is the type of finish that doesn’t seem to get any real boost from a shiny top coat. Basically what you see when you’re painting your nails is what you’ll get even with a top coat. That being said, you should always wear a top coat because it enhances your manicure mileage.
Application & Formula
The formula on this was great. I was able to easily control the polish and get it to go where I wanted it to. It wasn’t too runny, but it also wasn’t thick. You’ll need 2 coats to achieve full opacity.
I recommend using thin coats because with this particular finish, it tends to bubble with medium to thick coats.
Final Verdict: 8/10
I really enjoyed wearing China Glaze Deviantly Daring, and I suspect that if you’re over the moon about teals, this one may speak to you.
