China Glaze – Avant Garden Collection (Spring 2013)

Today I have my six picks of the Avant Garden Collection by China Glaze to share with you.china glaze avant garden 2013All swatches have a base coat, two coats of color and one coat of Seche Vite.

Keep calm, paint on, a mint green cream with lots of fine silver shimmer. The formula is on the thick side but the application went fine. A great shade for Spring!cg keep calm, paint on
Tart-y for the party, a lilac cream. The formula is again on the thick side and the first coat is was a little bit streaky. The second coat smoothened it out to a lovely opaque shade. cg tart-y for the party
Fade into hue, a lovely periwinkle cream. The formula is slightly thin and tends to run. But the application went fine. The first coat was a bit sheer but the second coat -surprisingly- made it completely opaque. cg fade into hue
Life is rosy, a dusty rose pink cream. The formula is great. The first word that popped in my mind after I applied this was ‘vintage’. Don’t ask me why 😉cg life is rosy
Passion for petals, a bright red cream with lots of pink undertones. Formula is great and easy to work with. Love this! cg passion for petals
Snap my dragon, a bright red shimmer with magenta undertones. This is my favorite of these six. The formula is perfect! I just love how it glows magenta in some lightning 🙂cg snap my dragon
Did you pick up any of the Avant Garden Collection? Which one(s) is/are your favorite?

  1. I got 6 of the Avant Garden colors, but many of them are different. I was just painting them on a nail wheel tonight so I could make sure to know what they looked like without having to swatch on my nail next time I wanted to wear one. I’m a huge fan of the frosty white one called Just Dandy Lyin’ Around. So pretty and clean. It’s not too much sparkle. I also like Fancy Pants. I’m a sucker for a purple.

      • I used 3 thin coats. Since I don’t have long nails, I could have pulled off 2, but it looks better with 3. With my shorter nails, it made me think of mini marshmallows. 🙂 I’m in love with the way it makes my nails look. It has the same type of shimmer that Keep Calm and Paint On has. It’s very pretty.
