China Glaze – Sunsational Collection

Happy Sunday!

Recently China Glaze released their Sunsational Collection which consists of six creams and six jellies. Whoop whoop!
Here are my six picks:china glaze sunsationalFirst up, the two creams that I picked up.

That’s Shore Bright is a purple cream. Such a pretty color! The first coat went on streaky. I used two coats here and definitely needed a top coat to get a smooth and even finish. cg that's shore bright - sunsationalColor wise, Sun of A Peach is one of my favorites from these six. It’s a neon peachy orange cream. This one refused to get color accurate on camera. On the picture this is the perfect peachy shade to me. It’s way brighter in real life! The formula is, as with That’s Shore Bright, difficult to work with. It’s streaky and it doesn’t level nicely. I used two coats plus top coat here, but it could used a third coat. cg sun of a peach - sunsationalAnd here are the four jellies:

Keepin’ It Teal, a teal green jelly. What can I say? On the picture this seems so pretty… I think that’s because this is two coats over a white base. I tried it on itself at first but yeah well, I’m not gonna lie… The formula is terrible. After four coats it still wasn’t near being opaque. Besides that it looked like I’ve been working in the garden and forgot to clean up my nails afterwards. I really don’t know what it is with teals and blue’s but they make your nails look dirty. Oh well, maybe I’ll use this some time for a jelly sandwich 😉cg keepin' it teal2 - sunsationalAnd if I wasn’t let down after Keepin’ It Teal, Isle See You Later will make sure of that. Same story, even worse. This is three coats over a white base. So so sheer! That means… base coat, two coats of white, three coats of color and a top coat. Uhhh seven (!) coats of polish? What the? cg isle see you later2 - sunsationalNow we’re getting somewhere! Heat Index, an extremely bright pink jelly. YAY! It’s way brighter in person than my camera could handle. I used four coats here, but there’s still some visible nail line. I don’t mind that with this shade.  cg heat index - sunsationalAnd last but not least my favorite of these six: Shell-O, a coral pink jelly. Isn’t it gorgeous? This one is a bit more opaque than Heat Index. I used four coats for the picture shell-o - sunsationalSorry guys for the grizzle about the two blue/teal shades. I’m here to share my honest thoughts with you. So, when I’m disappointed about something, I’ll let you know. I don’t want any of my readers buying stuff based on a lie and then find out that it isn’t great at all. I love to read honest opinions myself, even if that means that some things aren’t as fab as I had hoped. I hope you guys can appreciate that 😉

Did you picked up any of this collection?cg sunsational

  1. Those shade names are fun! My favorite is the Sun of a Peach, it looks really nice and summery. Looks like it can be office appropriate too!

  2. I agree on the fact they are beautiful colors…however they were terrible to work with I must say….I am not happy with the formula @ all.

    • I don’t know how they compare to last years collection because I don’t have them.
      And formula wise the only big pain I found were the two blue/teal jellies. The colors are lovely! I bet there are more of us polish addicts that have swatched these. So I think it’s a good thing to look around on the web to see what others think before you buy some of these 😉 Hope this helps!

  3. I already have some of them on my wish list, I am just waiting for my new credit card, so I can order them 🙂 personally, these are my colors 🙂 I like all of them, really nice shades, and they don’t seem to be so bright as the last years neon collection, right? 🙂

  4. I’m not a fan of Jelly Polishes. The colors looks great but the formula leaves much room for improvement. I favorite swatches are the two corals. They are the best bright coral shades i’ve seen in a long time.
