Have you been feeling blue lately? China Glaze Want My Bawdy from the New Bohemian Collection has, but it wouldn’t be any other way!
This blue nail polish surprised me because I thought it was going to be a duochrome, however, the finish was a straight-up chrome.
Nevertheless, this one is gorgeous, and I loved the rich contrast.
It looks magnificent especially in sunlight, although I didn’t have my camera handy when Mr. Sun decided to say hello. Still, you can see some of the magic in my photos with the camera’s flash.
And…what a cheeky name this polish has. It’s trying to use its nail-polish wiles to lure us in!

China Glaze Want My Bawdy Review
As China Glaze themselves describe, Want My Bawdy definitely is a sexy sapphire blue. It’s a dramatic kind of blue that you reach for when you want something funky on your nails that really stands out and gets attention.
I also feel like this is a shade of blue that provides a lot of contrast and is a jewel-tone, so it can be flattering on many different skin tones.
Want My Bawdy by China Glaze has a shiny lustre-chrome finish.
As much as I tried to look at my nails from many different angles (to the point of looking somewhat ridiculous), I couldn’t see any other colour than this one sapphire blue. So it doesn’t have the duochrome finish that I noticed in China Glaze Unpredictable, which is also from the same collection.
Application & Formula
Because of the high metallic finish, you can see brush strokes. Compared to other finishes, the brush strokes on this kind of polish are more obvious.
Usually I don’t like obvious brush strokes, but I forgave this polish just because it shone so brilliantly. (Plus I don’t like to stay angry with polishes for long. Usually we forgive, shake hands, and then go for an ice cream and a movie.)
The formula was easy to control, and it took two coats for me to completely cover the nail. I suggest using thin coats, instead of medium ones like I tend to use, because this formula has the tendency to bubble with thicker coats.
Final Verdict: 8/10
If you’re a big blue nail-polish collector, you may have a chrome polish that’s similar to this. It doesn’t strike me as extremely unique. That being said, I still think this is a fun polish to wear, so if you don’t have something similar, this is a nice one to have.
Did you get any shades from the China Glaze New Bohemian Collection? Do you have any blues that look similar to this?
