China Glaze Towel Boy Toy nail polish from the Poolside Summer 2010 Collection – Review, Photos, Nail Swatches

Hi everyone,

I’ve been busy testing a lot of nail polish colors lately and my poor nails are starting to ask for a break, or a well deserved vacation. I have only two more nail polishes to test and then I will take a break and simply wear some base coat for a while.

Now I want to present to you Towel Boy Toy nail polish from Poolside Summer 2010 Collection by China Glaze. This is the third nail color I’ve got from this collection and if you are into bright shades you might just wanna try this one.

It’s a vibrant blue color, not really neon but I’ve notices some fine shimmering particles inside. As I just said I have only 3 colors from this collection but Towel Boy Toy has the best application from all 3 of them so far. I’ve applied 2 coats and I can say the application went great on this color. Continue Reading

China Glaze Sun Worshiper nail polish from the Poolside Summer 2010 Collection – Review, Photos, Nail Swatches

Hello my dears,

Today I will review Sun Worshiper nail polish, one of the six colors of the Poolside Summer 2010 Collection by China Glaze.

This collection includes only bright colors and Sun Worshiper makes no exception from the rule. A few days ago I reviewed Pool Party nail polish from the same collection.

Sun Worshiper is an orange neon, with very fluid and light texture and with a matte finish. Once I applied it on my nails I realized it’s kind of transparent so 2 coats weren’t enough to make the color look more opaque. I’ve applied three coats of Sun Worshiper and in the photo bellow you can see the result.

I apologize for the photo quality (I still haven’t bought a new cam) and the shadows. Because the color has a matte finish I wanted to try and see how would it looked like if it were shiny. So, I’ve applied one layer of top coat and you can see the result in the photo bellow. Continue Reading

China Glaze Pool Party nail polish from the Poolside Summer 2010 Collection – Review, Photos, Nail Swatches

Hi everyone,

A few days ago I received a few nail polishes from the Poolside Summer 2010 Collection by China Glaze. I tested the Pool Party nail polish first since you know my addiction for pink. If you are interested in my China Glaze colors visit their website.

Pool Party is one of the 6 colors included in the Poolside collection. It’s said to be a bright color, a neon pink, but I noticed a difference in color after I’ve applied the nail polish and I let it dry for couple of minutes.

I love the color in the bottle, that bright pink almost similar to fuchsia but after the nail polish dries it changes to a more orange peachy shade.

Pool Party – 3 coats

In the first photo (sorry for the poor quality) you can see the result after I layered 3 coats of Pool Party. The texture is matte so if you like matte nail polishes you should give this collection a try. I don’t like to layer more than 2 coats of polish but this one was not opaque and I couldn’t seem to get the real color with only 2 coats. I can’t say that I’m happy with those 3 coats either because it tends to be a little transparent towards the top of the nail, so I’ve applied one layer of top coat.

In my opinion the shiny Pool Party shade looks better but you can wear it as you please. The application was OK, I had not problems with the brush whatsoever, it just picked up enough product so everything went smoothly.

This was my first time when I’ve tried a nail polish from China Glaze and I have to say I expected more from it.

China Glaze Poolside – 2010 Summer Collection

After writing about all these 2010 Spring Collections, I though to take this post to another level and jump right into the hot summer season. Although we just entered winter and Holiday are near I can’t stop thinking about those summer sunny days when you get to stay by the pool and enjoy a fresh cold drink.

“Lounging poolside, sipping on a drink and reading the latest magazine…makes you think of Summer doesn’t it? The only thing missing is that perfect manicure and pedicure! Dip into the summer with some of the brightest and most amazing neons from the China Glaze Poolside collection! Perfect for fingers, and especially the toes, nothing says Summer of 2010 like a couple coats of bright polish!”
