China Glaze Sunsational Collection - Jellies

Monday, June 17, 2013


China Glaze  is releasing a new Sunsational Collection with 12 summer bright colors. I was lucky enough to have the entire collection to review and share with you. The collection has six vibrant cream polishes and six gorgeous jelly polishes.

This post will feature the jelly polishes. The formula on these varied. Some only took two or three coats; which is great for a jelly. A couple took five coats and you can still see the visible nail line (VNL). But they were perfect to use for a jelly sandwich! Application is much easier if you allow the polish to dry between coats. Jelly polishes are designed to be sheer and full of that dimensional look.


You can see the swatches of the cream polishes in a previous post.

Let's move on to the swatches.

Shell-O (coral-pink) - Shell-O is a gorgeous coral pink jelly. This is two coats. I love this shade. It's bright and is full of dimension.

Your Drive Me Coconuts (purple panic) - is described as a purple. But let me tell you. It is a gorgeous hot pink. This is two coats and the coverage was superb! This is my favorite of the collection.

Heat Index (Hot Pink) -  is another bright pink but it is a bit more muted than You Drive Me Coconuts. This is two coats.

Are You Jelly? (purple) - is a positively poppin' purple. I love this bright grape shade. It is also one of my favorites in the collection. This is three coats.

Isle See You Later (blue) - is a sheer blue polish. This is five coats and you can still see the VNL. It reminds me of the gel toothpaste.

I liked the color so much but I didn't like seeing so much of the VNL. So I applied it over China Glaze White on White.

I also tried it as a jelly sandwich with China Glaze Water You Waiting For. It's perfect for a jelly sandwich. It's plenty sheer enough to allow the glitter to shine through. This is two coats of Isle See you Later; one coat of  Water You Waiting For and then another coat of Isle See You Later.

Keepin' It Teal (Turquoise) - is a perfect teal - even if it is sheer. This is five coats and again, you can see the VNL.

I used it to make a jelly sandwich. This is two coats of Keepin' It Teal; one coat of Water You Waiting For and then another coat of Keepin' It Teal. Again, it's perfect for that jelly sammy!

    1. I hope you like them! They are rather nice. The blue and the teal are very sheer but I loved them in the jelly sandwich!
