Left to right: ‘That’s Shore Bright’; ‘Too Yacht to Handle’; ‘Neon and On and On’
I’ve been eyeing up these three particular nail polishes for the longest time. Well, two years, since the collection launched in 2013. The China Glaze Sunsational Collection consisted of 6 jellies and 6 cremes and I have three of the creme polishes. I bought these from Nail Polish Direct for just £3.95 each.
I don’t know why I waited to long to get these because I couldn’t love the colours more. ‘That’s Shore Bright’ is easily the brightest purple I own, but it has a bluey tone to it which makes it super cool. ‘Too Yacht to Handle’ is pure awesome for the name alone, but as a neon teal, it’s also a colour I want to wear all the time. It’s currently my toe shade and makes me so happy. And ‘Neon and On and On’ is a gorgeous neon coral. You can tell how bright this one is as it makes the other two look muted in the top photo. It’s definitely a shade that attracts admiring comments.
Unfortunately, the formula is not the best, but I wonder if that might be because the bottles are two years old? They take a little work – three thin layers with drying time in between is best – plus they dried semi matte, which I really wasn’t expecting and don’t like so they really need a glossy top coat as well. On me, I got chips after two days, I would normally hope for three or four days at least for China Glaze. However, I really don’t care. I’ll take the extra work for these babies.
Next time I just won’t wait so long.
