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:
