Stunning China Glaze Summer Neons!

Hey guys and gals! Today I have 3 beautiful summer shades by China Glaze for you. These were released as part of the Summer Neons collection, which you should still be able to find in beauty stores and online.

First, we have a lovely neon with shimmer called Hang-Ten Toes. Now, we have all seen hot pink neons done over and over again, but the strong shimmer in Hang-Ten Toes really makes it special. In fact, it kind of reminds of the shimmer that I love in China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise. Application on this was fine, but it did take 3 coats. Also, since it is a neon, it dries to a satiny matte finish. This swatch shows it with top coat, because that really brings out the gorgeous shimmah!

Next up is the first of two jellies, Ride the Waves. This blue jelly is totally unique to me! I do have Revlon Royal, which is a very well known and beautiful dark blue jelly. But Ride the Waves stands apart because of it's super bright blue color. And you know me, I love a good jelly. The finish is so squishy! This was 3 easy coats as well, though I do have a bit of bubbling in the photo.

Squish!

Last, but not least, here's Under the Boardwalk. The Polishaholic seems to have discovered a second version of this jelly... Mine is the bright magenta version. This was the color that jumped out at me the least in the bottle, but boy, do I love it on the nail! First off, it applies like buttah. Absolutely perfect, it practically paints itself. The jelly finish is to die for. It is so juicy, so squishy... just your perfect jelly. I have fallen hard for Under the Boardwalk. It's amazing. 3 easy coats here!

Seriously juicy!

So, there you have it! These three shades are new for Summer 2012 and should be available at your local beauty supply or easily found online. My personal favorite is Under the Boardwalk, but you simply can't go wrong when picking from these three!

Did you pick up any Summer Neons? Which is your fave?

  3. I normally don't gravitate toward pink polishes, but Hang Ten Toes is really beautiful! It stands out to me.
