China Glaze Aquadelic probably looks a bit familiar to you. When I first saw it, it reminded me immediately of China Glaze For Audrey. (More on that later in this post!)
China Glaze Aquadelic hails from the ElectroPop Collection Spring 2012.
It’s actually a robin’s egg blue. (My flash photos are closer to the real colour.) But, here in natural light, you can see more of the light blue.
If you’re looking for an eye-popping colour that’s flattering on pretty much everyone, I highly recommend Aquadelic!

China Glaze Aquadelic Review
Aquadelic by China Glaze is a greenish robin’s egg blue that pops on your fingernails!
Whenever I wear something like this, I always get tons of compliments from both females and males…even strangers. I think it’s because it’s such a happy colour that’s bright and fun, without being garish.
Aquadelic by China Glaze is a creme polish, which is simple and sweet.
Application & Formula
It was highly pigmented! I could’ve probably gotten away with a single coat because the formula was thick, but I used 2 coats to even everything out. (Plus, using a minimum of 2 coats is a habit of mine.)
Even though the formula was thick, it was also runny at the same time, and while it does level out a little bit, you need to apply this with more care because it can easily lie more thickly on some parts of the nail than on others.
My advice is to use thin coats instead of medium coats like I used to achieve better results. You’ll be able to control it much more that way.
I mentioned that China Glaze Aquadelic is very close to China Glaze For Audrey. Do you need both?
If you’re a hardcore nailphile, you’ll be able to see the slight nuances in person. Strangely, when I photographed the bottles side-by-side, the camera didn’t pick up the teeny, tiny difference…but that was because my lighting wasn’t the best.
Trust me, there is a difference between the two in person, but it’s so minute that if you’re not a nail addict, they’ll look like exact dupes to you. (And, in all honesty, even I can’t notice the difference when it’s on my nails. I can only see the difference when I have both of them side-by-side to compare.)
Aquadelic is just a touch brighter and bluer than For Audrey. For Audrey lean slightly greener and is a bit dustier.
(If you want to see my old China Glaze For Audrey swatches & review, check it out to compare for yourself!)
I thought that some of you may also be curious to know how China Glaze Aquadelic compares to OPI Mermaid’s Tears.
OPI Mermaid’s Tears is dustier and greener, so it’s much closer to China Glaze For Audrey than it is to China Glaze Aquadelic.

Final Verdict: 10/10
Aquadelic by China Glaze is a fun-loving colour that I feel anyone can sport regardless of what your skin tone is. It’s a hue that reminds me of the summer, so I associate it with happy memories.
If you already have China Glaze For Audrey and aren’t a hardcore nail-polish collector, I think that you can pass on this one because it’s so similar.
If you have both, do you prefer China Glaze Aquadelic or For Audrey? What is your number-one polish to wear during the summer?
