Summer Collection: China Glaze Kicks Part I
Along with Summer Day's, China Glaze introduces Kicks. A collection of twelve colorful shades ranging from green, orange, red, pink, purple and blue inspired from footwear worn by sneakerheads.
Yep, China Glaze does it again for summer! Overall, I really liked this collection because it's not your typical bright neon shades were used to. You don't have to be brave or daring to love every single one.
Today I'm starting with the shimmers shades. The textures are a cross between a fine micro shimmer and subtle. Most shades applied perfectly with two or three coats with no application problems.
Check em' out guys!
Paper Chasing - a grass green with matching shimmer that reminded me a little bit of Essie's, Dominica Green.
It was next to impossible to get an accurate swatch for Custom Kicks, a tealish aqua with gold shimmer. More greenish aqua in real life that's absolutely gorgeous and my fave from the Kicks collection.
Breakin' - is an orange with gold shimmer.
Entourage - lime green with gold shimmer.
Fly - magenta pink with purple and pink shimmer.
Sky High Top - cornflower blue with aqua shimmer.
Here's a quick comparison of Custom Kicks and Sky High Top. As you can see, Custom Kicks is more green based when compared to Sky High Top.
I'll be posting Part II tomorrow - stay tuned. I wanna hear your thoughts!

There are a couple colors from this collection that I am liking. Great swatches can't wait to see some more from this collection. I really heart cute collections like these, with great names like these. Plus, a collection inspired by shoes - no brainer :)
