China Glaze Dorothy Who?

I thought I'd share a fabulous, classic glitter with you all today: China Glaze Dorothy Who? from the Wizard of Ooh Ahz Collection.  It's a blue jelly base packed full of silver microglitter. This one's a real stunner!




I love this polish. It reminds me of the night sky. In fact, Dorothy Who? is in kind of the same vein as the infamous Essie Starry Starry Night, although they're not dupes; Starry Starry Night is quite a bit darker and leans more purple. But considering the fact that unlike Starry Starry Night, Dorothy Who? is a core polish and you won't have to practically sell your firstborn son to get it, Dorothy Who? might make a nice substitute, even if it's not a very close one.

But Dorothy Who? is still a classic in its own right and for good reason: it's beautiful! I've only got a few minor quibbles about the formula--it's runny but still covers nicely in three coats--but otherwise this is a total winner.

    1. I have 4 bottles of this, along with Ruby Pumps. The 2 best ChG colours of all time, IMHO. : )

    2. @Sarah: Ooo, that sounds really pretty! I have both polishes so I may have to try it!

      @Erin: Agreed, both are total CLASSICS! Ruby Pumps was my very first China Glaze so that polish in particular is extra special to me. :)

  2. I actually used some Dorothy Who? in my Starry Starry Sky franken a couple months ago. It was the perfect base.

    1. I could see it being a really great polish to franken with. It's very pretty on its own but you could easily still tweak it or add other elements to it.

    1. I think this would be a good stepping stone into the world of glitter! :) It's so sparkly and shiny that I know you'd absolutely fall in love with it!

  4. I love this polish. I got it at the same time as Skyscraper thinking I would love both the same and they'd be similar. While I like Skyscraper I like Dorothy Who a lot more. I think I just love that blue color. Really beautiful.

    1. I have Skyscraper as well. They're both pretty and they're different enough to own both but I agree there's something extra beautiful about Dorothy Who. It's got some serious sparkle to it and looks so lovely!
