China Glaze Road Trip Collection swatches, review

Monday, January 26, 2015

I have the China Glaze Road Trip Collection for you today. These colors just scream "spring." The shades are interesting and vibrant. I always get excited for spring collections - I just wish spring would come out and play when the collections do.
"For those with wanderlust, there is nothing better than hitting the open road and chasing the dreams that lie ahead. This Spring China Glaze® celebrates the free spirit who lives for adventure and creates her own experiences with the new Road Trip nail lacquer collection. The 12 new shades are inspired by the vibrant hues of a setting sun as it dips below the horizon. Warm pinks, yellows and reds give way to the cool blue tones of the evening sky.  The China Glaze® Road Trip collection offers so many ways to take your adventure on the road and pave your own path." - China Glaze Press Release.
Let's take a look!

China Glaze Road Trip

Trip of a Lime Time is a vibrant lime green crème shade. It leans toward yellow. I don't normally like lime green polishes. But there is something about this one that I really enjoy. It applied easily and evenly. This is two coats.

My Way or the Highway is a bright turquoise crème polish. I love this color and can't wait to try it out in some nail art. I tend to favor blue polishes, especially when they are this vibrant and eye catching. This is two coat with no top coat. Look at that shine!

License & Registration Pls is a marine blue crème. Dare I say this? It's blue - so of course I love it. But this is a wonderful shade with lots of pigment. This is two coats.

Boho Blues is yes... another blue. But this soft indigo crème is sure to find its way into lots of manis and nail art this spring and summer. This is two coats.

Dashboard Dreamer is a powder blue shimmer that really thinks it wants to be green - almost. It has a subtle golden shimmer in it that adds depth and dimension. This is three coats.

Wanderlust is a soft powder pink polish with lots of subtle golden shimmer. It is a very classy and subtle polish. This is three coats.

Pack Lightly is a powdery soft peach polish with that wonderful subtle shimmer.  It's a great shade for spring. This is three coats with a top coat. It didn't need a top coat for shine or for formula issues.

More the Explore is a sun kissed coral crème polish. I love this shade. This is three coats. I think I could have gotten away with two coats. But I have that pesky ridge on my ring finger that wanted to be obstinate.

Pinking Out the Window is a vibrant pink crème that leans slightly toward salmon. It applied well and that shine is amazing. This is two coats.

I Brake for Colour is an ultra-bright reddish pink crème polish. It is sure to be an eye catcher and I can't wait to use it in nail art. This is two coats.

Pop the Trunk is a bright orange crème polish. It reminds me of beach umbrellas and fun spring flowers. This is two coats.

Sun’s Up, Top Down is a sensationally bright yellow with amazing shimmer. I normally don't wear bright yellow polishes, but this one is going to get used. It applied well. This is three coats.
