China Glaze Island Escape Swatch / Review

Hey Ladies!

I was super happy when we received nail-mail last week. We received 5 out of the 6 new China Glaze colors from the Island Escape collection. Mari was nice enough to do the swatching for me since I received this collection and was leaving town the very next day (went to visit the boyfriend). 

Here goes!

Papaya Punch - China Glaze describes this as a creme based vivid orange. They aren't kidding! Super bright. These pictures don't even do it justice. It's insane in person. 2 coats for full coverage. Great application.

Electric Pineapple - China Glaze describes this as a high intensity creme based lime green. 3 coats for full coverage. Not as insanely bright as Papaya Punch. Great application.

Cha Cha Cha - China Glaze describes this as a vivacious shimmer green. Certainly a glass fleck with plenty of shimmer. 3 coats for full coverage. Great application.

Senorita Bonita - China Glaze describes this as a passionate purple shimmer with pink micro glitter. Beautiful! Super pretty purple with pink shimmer. 3 coats for full coverage. Great application.

Blue Iguana - China Glaze describes this as a bold and daring sparkly blue. This one took 4 coats for full coverage. There was some VNL. Experienced some cuticle drag while applying the color though. That made the application a little bit troublesome. Luckily its such a pretty blue!

So, what do you ladies think?

This collection was sent to us for review. Please read our disclosure policy (here).
