Happy Memorial Day! Today I have three polishes from the new China Glaze Summer Neons collection. Check out the rest of the shades in the collection here.
Sun-kissed is retina searing highlighter yellow - in other words bright yellow with a tinge of green. On the first and second coat, it seamed more summery yellow, but after the third coat I saw the neon in it. It’s so bright, it makes you do a double take when you look at it!
Splish Splash was the color number one color I wanted out of this collection. This color reminds me of pool water - bright and shimmery and in your face. I can’t tell you how much I love it - the combination of neon pigment and shimmer just MAKES ME HAPPY. Like Sunkissed, I wore this with three coats of polish followed by top coat.
Hang-Ten Toes is described as a Bubblegum neon with iridescent purple shimmer, but to me it is more of a blue based fuchsia. It was the the only shade that I could have worn just two coats, but I did a third out of habit. The formula on this one was very smooth - the first two polishes were thick, but not unmanageably so. The formula on Hang-Ten Toes was perfectly smooth, it almost didn’t need a topcoat. I used one anyways to make it nice and shiny!
I really like the China Glaze Summer Neons collection - the shimmer was a great spin on classic neon shades. Although I haven’t yet seen the rest in person, I plan on purchasing several more when they hit the stores this June - Beach Cruise-r, Ride the Waves, I’m With the Lifeguard and Flirty Tanki to name a few!
What about you? Which shades do you have your eye on?
