China Glaze Island Escape Collection Swatches

 Take an exotic island escape with China Glaze this summer with a tropical, shimmering rainbow of brilliant bright colours! Mix and match these hot hues to add a candy-like pop to that summer manicure and pedicure. Colours in the collection include:

 Senorita Bonita: Purple shimmer with pink micro glitter.

 Cha Cha Cha: Vivacious shimmer green

108 Degrees: Berry pink with specks of micro glitter.

 Papaya Punch: Crème based vivid orange.

 Electric Pineapple: High intensity crème based lime green.

Blue Iguana: Bold and daring sparkly blue.

When i first saw this collection i have to admit it didn't excite as much as other China Glaze previous collections - it wasn't until i put them on my nails i realised that this collection was gorgeous! It has beautiful shimmers and pretty crèmes! Although these colours aren't usually ones i would go for i am so happy i tried them out. They really give an amazing 'pop' of colour to your nails!

My favorite is Blue Iguana - it's such an usual, stunning colour.

All colours were applied with two coats.

Out this Summer 2011. Are you going to be buying them?

Spring Colours From Nubar - Pink Creme + Caribbean Coral

Pinks and purples are IN this Spring/Summer! I have found two gorgeous shades from Nubar that are my must haves for the sunny season.

 Above: Nubar - Pink Creme
A gorgeous light bubblegum pink that suits every skin tone. Extremely easy to apply and to remove. It also dried in record time which i was very impressed with!

Above: Nubar - Caribbean Coral
A stunning light purple with pink tones. A little thinner consistency but builds up easily.
What colours will you be wearing this Spring?
