China Glaze: Summer Colors

It's almost Chirstmas! My boyfriend just came into town on Tuesday, so I've been really busy the last few days. I'll probably stay busy until he leaves in January so I might not have a lot of time to post, but we'll see. 
These China Glaze colors remind me of summer. Sometimes, it's good to have pleasant colors to cheer you up in the dreary cold.

China Glaze Lemon Fizz, Bahamian Escape, and Grape Pop. 
All these colors were in a random sale bin at my beauty supply store.

033
I used 2 coats of Lemon Fizz. Boy, this was one streaky polish. The second coat was a lot better but I still had to use one coat of top coat to even this all out. 
034
This color makes my hands look like lobster claws.

035
He is a close up. It looks so creamy and yummy. The coat of top coat made a big difference.

037
This is 2 coats of Bahamian Escape. It probably could have been 1 coat if I applied it better. 

038
This formula is very watery. I'm probably odd about this, but I prefer my polishes a little thicker. I feel like when it's thicker, it's easier to control- even if it's streakier. I rarely use polish thinner. So, this polish felt like trying to paint my nails with tap water.

039
I think the watery-ness of the formula makes it shine more. You can see here it looks a lot thinner than Lemon Fizz. I also didn't use top coat. I would say this is more of a jelly-creme.

042
This is 2 coats of Grape Pop but could have been a one coater. This is a very gorgeous purple jelly-creme. This is lighter than purples I usually wear, so I consider this a summer color.

046
This polish was very shiny, so I didn't use top coat. It had the same watery formula as the blue one.

047
This polish had the same exact consistency of Bahamian Escape.

I feel like I've been showing a lot of China Glazes lately. China Glaze is my favorite brand, and I have quite a few of them. I feel like their polishes are unique and fun which is why I always tend to gravitate to them first. 
Are there any brands you would like to see on my blog?

  1. China Glaze is my favorite brand of polish so I don't mind at all you gravitate to them first! I agree they do have unique and fun colors and these three are no exceptions (I also like the names they give their polishes). These three are absolutely amazing and very easter-y I feel like. Beautiful!

  3. Wow, all three of these colors are gorgeous! I really like that yellow one; too bad it's a bit streaky but I think it turned out flawless by the time you were done! Lovely colors!

  6. I love China Glaze too! Grape Pop looks AWESOME on you! Lemon Fizz would probably look terrible on my warm skin and Bahamian Escape is very pretty!
