China Glaze Summer Days Collection
Summer is the ultimate season I look forward to year after year. Grilled hamburgers and hot dogs along with corn on the cob after a long day at the beach or pool. Fresh fruits such as watermelon, strawberries, oranges and grapes.
And, even though it seems like summer is a million months away, I couldn't hold back China Glaze's, Summer Days.
This collection certainly takes me take to those relaxing summer days featuring nail polish names such as Grape Juice, Watermelon Rind, and Strawberry Fields.
Oh, thank you China Glaze for giving us something to look forward to. One noticeable trend this Spring season...NO shimmers ya'll! Where did all the shimmers go - I miss them dearly!
All the formula's are jelly like texture with glass flecked shimmer. Some colors I found to be semi sheer that required three coats and others were just fine in two.
Check out all the swatches below.
I'm starting with my two favorites from the Summer Days collection, Watermelon Rind and Grape Juice. Both are equally gogeous and can't bare to pick a #1 favorite!
Watermelon Rind is a gorgeous watermelon green with silver flecked shimmer.
Grape Juice is a cross between purple and violet with silver flecks of shimmer! Gorgeous.
Orange Marmalade is a true orange with gold shimmer.
Strawberry Fields is a soft strawberry pink with gold flecked shimmer.
Raspberry Festival is cherry red with pink glass flecks of shimmer.
Cherry Pie is a red orange with gold shimmer. Not quite a tomato red nor a true cherry red.
Here's a short video clip of China Glaze's, Summer Days.
The summer 09 collection is now available online at Transdesgn and retails for $2.60/ea. Summer Days should be hitting Sally's and other retailers mid March.
