You’ve probably been obsessed with the idea of spray-on nail polish ever since Nails Inc. announced it was coming out with some, but what is it really like to spray on your night-out nail look?
Four women put the brand spankin’ new China Glaze Coloured Nail Spray, which launches in four colors — “Purple Shimmer,” “Magenta Shimmer,” “Bright Blue,” “Platinum Silver” — at Ultathis April, to the test.
Here’s how it works: Like the Nails Inc. formula, you apply the China Glaze basecoat, evenly spray the polish of your color about 4 inches from your nails, wait for it to dry, apply the topcoat to seal it in, rinse your nails with soapy water, and magic! Your nails are done in less than five minutes.

“Everything about spray-on nail polish feels counterintuitive to me. When I’m painting my nails with a brush, I’m doing everything I can not to get the polish on my skin. I definitely felt a little like, ‘This is wrong,’ while I was spraying, but also, maybe it was pretty cool as far as gimmicks go? There’s barely any dry time involved, which is cool. And washing the polish off my hands was really easy and fun. It’s not the most precise manicure I’ve ever had, but for sheer speed, it’s great.” —Helin
“I loved it! It’s definitely the easiest way to get your nails done in a flash. It literally smelled just like the men’s cologne section of Bloomingdales and the best part? It was so easy to take off!” —Alex
“I’m digging this spray-on nail polish because it even works on top of gel polish that has run its course. Time always escapes me, so the fact that I can just spray and go on top of an old mani makes me feel like I have my life together in a matter of minutes.” —Maya
I really liked how easily and evenly the polish went on and how quickly it came off of my skin! I did notice that when I sprayed it on, I had to keep my hand flat so the polish wouldn’t dry unevenly. I also chipped a few of my nails soon after I sprayed it on, so I don’t think it’s the longest-lasting mani I’ll ever have, but it’s amazing for a quick nail switch-up for a night out!
