Here are my swatches for China Glaze's new summer collection "Island Escape". I love the polishes in this collection, they are bright, and full of summery goodness, all the colors are perfect for summer! :)
Flirtatious berry pink with specks of micro glitter.Great hot pink, with specks of micro-glitter that flash blue..loves it! this is my new favorite pink this summer!
2 coatsCrème based vivid orange. I love this color, because it is so much more than just "an orange", its a papaya orange, bright yellow based orange creme, original and perfect poolside. I can soooo see this on my hands catching some sun this summer..woo hoo!!
2 coatsHigh intensity crème based lime green. Like any light yellow-based color, the first coat was a bit sheer. You definitely have to let the coats dry a little between to prevent drag, but it's worth it, This is an awesome, "bright not quite neon" color!
Cha Cha Cha
2 coatsVivacious shimmer green. Applied nicely, and there were streaks on the first coat, but they disappeared with the second coat. :) This is a great summer green, reminds me of Margaritas!!!
3 coatsBold and daring sparkly blue. This one has a great purple flash that is gorgeous, but of course my camera was NOT trying to show it....LOL. Even though it was the most sheer color of the group, it's still gorgeous at 3 coats! :)
2 coatsPassionate purple shimmer with pink micro glitter. The pink glitter is there, but it's hard to see on camera, this is a great color, and it will be the next color on my toes, so pretty!
These colors are meant to be poolside or beachside this year. The standouts to me are Electric Pineapple, Papaya Punch and Senorita Bonita. Even though the cremes gave me so "drag issues", on the second coat, they are still really nice, and in my opinion, perfect for toes this summer :):)
