China Glaze-Recycle

Another one I didn't get when it first came out because I wasn't infatuated with polish at the time. Recycle was a part of China Glaze's Ecollection that came out in Spring 2008. It's a dark gray creme and from what I've gathered, at the time there weren't too many gray cremes being produced by the nail companies. Fanatics were making their own. I'm glad CG rectified that because this is a good one.
Like I said, a nice dark gray creme. The formula was on the thin side which surprised me because I'm not used to dark colors with thin formulas. They're usually on the thick side. It went on streaky (not too bad though) with the first coat, but came to full opacity in two, which is what this is. Dried okay, nothing spectacular. Just a great gray creme.
This has probably been done to death before, but what the hell. I have Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy and decided to do a bit of a comparison. First thing first, the formula, like with pretty much every RBL I've tried before, was perfection. I did two coats because I wanted to do two coats. I could have done just one. It dried quicker than Recycle (and I put Recycle on first) and it was your basic great RBL creme.
As for the color itself, Recycle is just a bit darker. Unless you were looking hard you wouldn't be able to tell a difference between the two. It's not a absolute true dupe as my first comparison, but unless you love the color (like I do) there's no reason to have both. If you didn't get your hands on Stormy (and it's sold out and it wasn't voted as one of the three to be brought back) then get China Glaze Recycle. Seriously, it's a great color on its own.

Also, am I the only one that keeps spelling gray "grey?" Spell check puts that as a misspelling, but I know that's how they spell it in British English. When did I start using the British English spellings on certain words?


  1. 1. Gorgeous color!
    2. It's sad that people had to mix up their own polishes because there were no greys.
    3. I spell grey with an "e" too. I can't stand it with the "a", it drives me crazy. I used to spell color like colour until I entered pre-school too, so I think it's my mom's fault.

  2. Thanks. Yeah, that does suck people had to mix up their own greys before then. It seems like such a common color you would think there would have been polishes out before then. And now I don't feel like such a freak! Huzzah to grey!

  3. I LOVE greys, and I have Recycle, but I do not have Stormy...maybe now I don't need it..LOL :)

  4. Yeah, you totally don't need Stormy if you have Recycle. Both are great, just not necessary. Unless you love them both, like me. :)

  5. Grey/gray, it's all good, and a lovely color on you!
    I gave away Recycle because it was really chippy on me, and I found a dupe I liked better (Pure Ice Kiss me here).

  6. Thanks! I'm going to look for that Pure Ice color. I love greys so the more the merrier!

    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, fantastic blog!
