Special bonus post for you today featuring these two beauties from the new China Glaze On The Shore Sensational Summer Neon Collection. This collection is made up of 12 polishes: 6 creams and 6 jellies.
On the left: Too Yacht To Handle (a summer seas turquoise cream).
On the right: Isle See You Later (a sea deep blue jelly).
I had two very different application experiences with these polishes.
Too Yacht To Handle is a very pretty cream but it is an utter nightmare to apply – it’s very streaky and you definitely need at least two coats. A topcoat would probably even out the finish but I found the very thin brush wasn’t very helpful. I do really like this colour however and it will look great with a tan. This picture is two coats without a top coat and it did have a slightly longer than normal dry time and I am wondering if waiting longer between coats would have improved the application (I normally wait about 5 minutes and I know some bloggers wait up to 15 but I was too excited). Definitely a summer shade!
Isle See You Later was a very different story – this jelly applies like a dream and finishes beautifully glossy. You do need to build it up – no one can accuse it of being a very opaque jelly but it is just squishy glossy goodness. I thought I would show you how the colour built up from my index to my pinky showing 1-4 coats. My thumb shows one thickish coat of the colour over a white base. I have not had a huge amount of experience with jellies but I am 100% a convert and I am so excited to use this for all sorts of different things.
I am definitely not a swatcher but I was desperate to share these as I know they’re new and I always look for blogger opinions before buying things usually. Overall I am excited about the other jellies but a bit put off from buying anymore of the creams.
