These polishes came out to the public in June and I was lucky enough to get to try them out! These were sent to me by China Glaze and I am so grateful I get to share these swatches with you all! All of the swatches are two coats with no topcoat.

Wait N’ Sea This is a gorgeous bright aqua blue. It applied perfectly and dries to a shiny finish. I see myself turning to this color all throughout the summer. Definitely one of my favorites!

I Sea the Point This is a bright creme polish. It is very similar to Sally Hansen Pacific Blue or Essie Butler Please only a little more dull. It was the hardest out of all the colors to swatch. A little streaky and hard to work with but once applied, its gorgeous.

X-Ta-Sea This polish applies like a crelly (creme/jelly) formula and was a bit difficult to make opaque. Once you do get an opaque application, the color is gorgeous!

Dune Our Thing A beautiful creamy berry/fuchsia polish. This was a tad thin and streaky with one application, but is opaque after two coats. I see myself turning to this color many times this summer.

Float On This is a classic baby doll pink…and its a neon! As soon as I saw this color I immediately had it on my nails. It applied surprisingly well for a neon and looks stunning!

Feel the Breeze This is a gorgeous light neon pink. It dries to a matte finish without a topcoat. I am obsessed with this one! It also applied surprisingly well for a neon and was completely opaque with just two coats.

Sea’s the Day This is a gorgeous red creme. I don’t find it to really be a summer color, but it is gorgeous nonetheless. Easy to apply and looks fabulous on nails or toes!

Stoked to be Soaked This is a deep, bright orange with a slight gold shimmer. The application was very smooth and completely opaque.

If in Doubt, Surf it Out This is a coral, orange creme polish. I think its perfect for the summertime on your nails or toes! The application was perfectly smooth and opaque. I would definitely pick this one up if you’re looking for a wearable orange polish.

Sun Upon my Skin- This is a pale, bright yellow. I have already tried to wear this on my own nails and had the hardest time with application. The formula is very sheer and on my nails I would’ve needed 3 coats or a white base to really get the color pay off.

Be More Pacific This is a yellow/green creme polish that is very subtle. The formula is on the sheer side, but I was able to get it opaque in only two coats.

china glaze

Shore Enuff This is one of my favorites of the whole collection. Its a lime neon that dries to a matte finish if you don’t use a topcoat. It was very difficult to photograph the true color so I have two here with natural light. The first picture is natural light in the shade, the second is in direct sunlight. This is a neon you can actually use without a white base!

Overall, I am in love with this collection. Shore Enuff, Wait N’ Sea, and Float On are probably my top three picks. I think China Glaze did a great job with these colors and once again, I’m so thankful for receiving these!

I hope you all enjoyed and don’t forget to follow this blog so you don’t miss out on future collection swatches!

  1. Hi! Is “I Sea the Point” just a plain blue or does it have a hint of purple?
    I’ve been looking for a nice cornflower blue and Sally Hansen’s Pacific Blue is still “too blue” to me (at least my bottle is). :)
