China Glaze - Poolside Collection for Spring/Summer 2010

Here it is: the new China Glaze Poolside collection. I got this polishes thanks to two amazing ladies, Irene from China Glaze and my wicked vixen Angie, who arranged the polishes to be sent to her and then she resent them to me. She's an awesome lady indeed! Thank you Irene and Angie! :***

Let's start with photos. From my least favorite to my favorite.

Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, 4 coats
This one needs at least 4 coats and it could use a white base underneath, in my opinion. It's your typical yellow neon (like those markers you use when you study). =D


Kiwi Cool-ada, 3 coats
Very nice green. But boring. I've seen these kind of neon before. The application was great though.


Towel Boy Toy, 3 coats
The only shimmer in collection. I can see why it's a lot of people's favorite. But not mine. It reminds me of Color Club Pure Energy. Will do a comparison, don't worry! It's a beauty, isn't it?


Flip Flop Fantasy, 3 coats
Pink-coral neon. Why did this one make it into my top 3 of the collection when I ''hate'' corals? I really don't like them on me, but this one made me change my mind. Maybe because it has more pink in it. I don't know, but I like it!


Sun Worshiper, 3 coats
Beeeeautiful! The name sounds ''druid-ish'' and I love that. Polish worthy of it's name. Nothing else to add.


Pool Party, 3 coats
This one looks really weird on photo. Maybe that's because my camera wanted to die on me. Pool Party is a gorgeous barbie pink neon. I love it!


Sun Worshiper (the orange one) was the first one I tried. I was immediately stunned by the easy application. I don't experience this a lot with nail polishes, but I think that's a thing called buttery consistance. Marvelous! I also didn't expect them to be as opaque as they are.
But there's a downside too. I found them to be a little streaky. Well, swatching six nail polishes makes me hurry and you don't want to hurry with these. If you wait for the layers to completely dry before applying another coat, you won't have a lot of problems. But I have to hurry... ;)

Pool Party is my favorite as expected. I already set my eyes on it when I first saw the promo picutres. The other favorite was Towel Boy Toy, which is the only shimmer in the collection. It's a pretty color, but I'm not *that* impressed with it. And the only reason I'm not *that* impressed are the awesome Sun Worshiper and Flip Flop Fantasy shades. Wowza! Sun Worshiper must be the most original color of the collection and I love it. Yeah, I said it. I don't normally like orange (I think it's my least favorite color, along with yellow) but this one is a stunner! If you own it, you know what I'm talking about.

I'm not a neon lover myself but I'm amazed by this collection. Go get your favorite shades!

Thanks for looking!

  24. Well, Sun Worshiper is *my* favorite. I painted my studio that exact shade 5 years ago, and I love it. You know how much I hate the cold, and that particular shade of yellowed orange is always warm and inviting to me.

    I am getting 2 bottles of SW, and 1 each of FFF & PP. :)
