China Glaze Island Escape Collection Swatches

Who's ready for an island escape? With finals right around the corner I know I am! So today I have China Glaze's Summer Collection to share. I was really excited when I first saw this collection because I'm a brights type of girl. There's nothing like a cheery polish to lighten your mood!

Papaya Punch. Whip out your shades girls because this is a bright orange creme, almost neon. Very smooth application and applied with two coats.

108 Degrees. Berry pink infused with bright pink microglitter that makes it glisten in the sun.
Senorita Bonit
a. Sweet purple shimmer with pink microglitter. This one is quite beautiful!!! Two coats.

Blue Iguana. Stunning blue with light microglitter. This one also has that glass-glistening effect. Three coats. Gorgeous!
Cha Cha Cha. Medium bright green. The golden shimmer gives it a yellow glow.

Electric Pineapple
. Yellow-green cream. Like most yellows, four coats were required.

Overall the collection captured the island feel with the bright yellow, orange and blue that are reminiscent of what you'll see on a tropical vacation. The application was smooth & easy for most of the polishes, except Electric Pineapple which gave me a little trouble. Most of the glitters needed 3 coats, but they are thin and dry quickly, so it wasn't much of an issue. Blue Iguana, Senorita Bonita & Papaya Punch are my favorites!

And here's my Island Escape mani using Electric Pineapple, Cha Cha Cha & Blue Iguana.

Stamped with Konad M29
