I was wondering what to do with my nails today, and then I got a package, lol, nice timing there! :) It was from China Glaze, they kindly send me the Island Escape collection for review. Here's what China Glaze says about the collection:
Take an exotic island escape with China Glaze this summer with a tropical, shimmering rainbow of brilliant bright colors! Mix and match these hot hues to add a candy-like pop to that summer manicure and pedicure.
Unfortunately there's no sun today and my lightbox lamp died, but meh, I couldn't wait with swatching these :) I might add sun pictures later though.
All pictures show the polish without top coat, and the description above the pics is from China Glaze. As always, you can click the pictures for a bigger version.
Papaya Punch: Crème based vivid orange.
108 Degrees: Flirtatious berry pink with specks of micro glitter.
Electric Pineapple: High intensity crème based lime green.
Senorita Bonita: Passionate purple shimmer with pink micro glitter.
Blue Iguana: Bold and daring sparkly blue.
Edit: Since I wasn't too pleased with my previous swatches I made new ones. On the pics above I used 3 slightly thicker coats.
Cha Cha Cha: Vivacious shimmer green.
The application on these polishes was great, only the cremes were slightly streaky but not as bad as cremes can be. The drying time was fine too and they're all very shiny when fully dry, which I didn't expect from the ones with micro glitters.
China Glaze can be bought in online stores like Nailpolish Fashion (EU) and Transdesign.
I enjoyed swatching this tropical collection, it's so bright, summery and happy! ^^ Although it's so bright that my camera had a hard time with some of these, lol. I think that China Glaze is good at capturing the themes they choose, and this one is no exception.
The purple one is my favo, but after that I'm not sure which one I like best. What do you think of these polishes?
And on a sidenote, I added a tips page (see top left menu), suggestions are welcome!
Thanks for stopping by :)
