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.
