Sorry for the hiatus. Anyway, I’m back with swatches from the China Glaze Sunsational collection from summer 2013! I swatched the six cremes below – super bright colors with terrible formulas! Worth buying if you love great bright colors for summer…
Bottoms Up is a gorgeous bright Barbie pink if ever there was one. Because it has blue undertones I love it on me – makes me look a little more tan. This is three coats plus topcoat.
Love this one – Highlight Of My Summer is brighter on the nail than in the bottle, as are all of these colors, really. I adore this color, again probably for making me look tan! Three very streaky coats plus topcoat.
Neon & On & On is a color that looks orange-y pink-y peach both in the bottle and on the nails – can’t quite nail down a color but it is BRIGHT. It looks brighter on than in the bottle, again, and this is three coats plus topcoat.
Sun Of A Peach. This was probably in my top picks from this whole collection, including the jellies – it just really stands out on the nail. It is bright without being a straight orange, as it looks really creamy on the nail. This is three coats with topcoat.
That’s Shore Bright, a lovely purple with the best formula of them all. This is two easy coats with topcoat. This may look like a purple you already own, but for me it looked brighter on the nail, and I couldn’t quite adjust the color to capture exactly what it looks like. This is close though!
Finally Too Yacht To Handle, a fabulous eye searing teal with HORRIBLE formula. This is four coats to even out the bald patches plus topcoat. I don’t mind bad formulas when the color is worth the time, and for me, this color is worth the time. I love that it belongs in that Tiffany blue family but is brighter and bolder, and a bit more yellow toned.
Happy Father’s Day!
