China Glaze Off Shore Collection Swatches, Review Part 1

Press sample


I was able to try most of the nail polishes from the China Glaze Off Shore Collection. Half of the collection were sent to me for review, and the rest except one were bought by me.
I just love summer brights and warm weather hues, and since it is still scorching hot and in the middle of summer here in Arizona, I'd say it's not too late to post about these.

Here is Part 1 of my China Glaze Off Shore Collection Swatches, and my thoughts on these.



China Glaze Sun Upon My Skin

China Glaze Sun Upon My Skin is a beautiful sunshine yellow. I used to not like yellow nail polish, but it has grown on me over the years. Like most yellow polishes, this looks streaky on the first coat, but it evens out in the second and third coats.
China Glaze Feel the Breeze
China Glaze Feel the Breeze is a yellow-toned pink. It's light but it looks quite bright and cheerful on my nails.




China Glaze Be More Pacific

China Glaze Be More Pacific is honestly one of my best highlighter green neon polishes. It is not super retina-searing like other neon greens, but this applies really nicely and the formula is better than most neon polishes I've tried.

China Glaze Shore Enuff





China Glaze Shore Enuff is probably my favorite out of this collection. I've never seen a nicer-looking bright grass green cream with really good formula. It glides nicely on the nail and is just a dream to apply. It's also so easy to apply nail stamp art over it, as you can see in the photo above.


China Glaze If In Doubt, Surf It Out





China Glaze If In Doubt, Surf It Out is a nice light orange. It's not my favorite as it looks muddy on my nails, but like most of the polishes from this collection, its formula is really good.

I just have to say that I am really loving the shades and formula of the nail polishes from this collection. They are bright and eye-catching, but these traits do not affect the formula at all. In fact, I think that despite the bright and neon shades, the formula is just as nice or even nicer than China Glaze's regular nail polishes. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite summer nail polish collections. I also did not need to apply a white base underneath these polishes for the colors to pop.

Have you tried the China Glaze Off Shore collection? Thoughts?
