China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection

Just when you couldn’t take any more snow (we have another 2-hour delay this morning!) China Glaze has released the Sea Goddess Collection, six “sandy, sunny shore to the depths of the sea where the mermaids play.”  If these shades don’t get you excited for Spring, I don’t know what will!

China Glaze Wish On A Starfish

Wish On A Starfish is a bubblegum pink with gold shimmer.  This is my favorite kind of textured polish – a solid color with a  gold flash!  It looks so luxurious and bright!  It was even after two coats, but I did three for good measure.

China Glaze Shell We Dance

Shell We Dance is a deeper pink, closer to fuchsia, with pink glitter instead of gold.  It was easy to apply and once again looked okay after two coats, but again I did three for good measure.

China Glaze Tail Me Something

Tail me Something is a lilac base with silver and purple glitter.  The formula on this was hard to work with, very uneven and lumpy.  You can even see a few bald spots on my fingers.  I would recommend giving this one plenty of time in between coats.

China Glaze Seahorsin' Around

Seahorsin’ Around is a bright “pool blue” with gold and cyan glitter.  The formula on this one was impressive after Tail Me Something and covered well in two coats.  I had no issues with staining when I swatched this sans basecoat.

China Glaze Teal The Tides Turn

Teal The Tides Turn is a milky mint green with emerld green glitter.  I wanted to like it, but it took four coats!  As annoying as that was, I would wear it again, but layer it over a crème. 

China Glaze Sand Dolla Make You Holla

Sand Dolla Make You Holla is the most fun of the bunch, a milky white base filled with magenta, blue and silver glitter.  Unlike Teal the Tides Turn, this one only required three coats.  (Again, you could get away with less by layering it over a crème).  I got so many comments on this one that it looks like candy, and I agree!

China Glaze Sea Goddess is available on Sally.com.  I have also seen it in-store at Sally’s, but it has yet to arrive at ULTA.
