China Glaze Summer 2013! 5 Polishes From The Sunsational Collection!

I love summer.
I love neons.
I love China Glaze.

Bring on the SUNsational collection!!!

China Glaze's summer 2013 collection consists of both cremes AND jellies! I have 5 polishes to show you - 1 jelly and 4 cremes - and I look forward to picking up a few more polishes from this collection!



Shall we proceed?  :)

First, check out my lone jelly, You Drive Me Coconuts.  Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.  I have seen a few reviews with complaints about this collection.  You won't re-read that here.  Cremes and jellies are sheer, streaky, and need patience.  AND they are neons!

So, in reality, plan on 3 coats, enough dry time, and you will get just gorgeous results.  Looook:


I LOVE this color. I bet you're not surprised. This is 3 coats, no top coat. Great formula! For a neon, it dried shinier than I was expecting, so, bonus!



Next, let's look at the cremes! Here is Too Yacht To Handle, a gorgeous teal creme.


This is 3 coats, too. Three coats is asking a bit for a creme polish, it really is, but it's a neon. AND look at this color! I do not mind three coats if this is the color payoff, it's too pretty. This swatch has one layer of topcoat as well, and I used HK Girl by Glisten & Glow.



Next is Bottom's Up, a lovely neon pink creme. I am totally going to do a Hot Pink Comparison post for you, as I have waaay more hot pink polishes than a single person should. :) Oooops!!


This is three coats of BU plus topcoat:



Now let me show you That's Shore Bright. This is 3 coats with OUT topcoat, which I've decided is really needed after looking at these swatches. Apparently I needed more SUN in my SUNsational swatches, too, because these photos look pretty washed out. Lame-city, I apologize. I'll re-swatch this soon!




Aaand, last but not least, and ending on a fabulous note, is Highlight Of My Summer.

I Love This Color. I would consider marrying it, I love it that much. It is like a more neon version of OPI's Gargantuan Green Grape, which I first saw on Varnished Reputation and had to have it.

This shows 3 coats of HOMS and topcoat:




What do you think of these polishes!? Have you read more negative or positive reviews? Let me know what you think!

  1. I've read really negative reviews about this collection but I love the colors so much. I've seen them in the store but still can't decide on getting them or not.

  2. I love these nail polishes so pretty and perfect for summer.
