China Glaze City Flourish Collection

*Press Sample*

Hey y'all!  Today I have half of the China Glaze City Flourish Collection to share.  I'll get right to it and ramble later because it's pic heavy....I took over 200 photo's & narrowed it down to 3 each.

Don't Honk Your Thorn - 2 coats with top coat.  This is a gorgeous light nude-y shade with a subtle shimmer.  Strangely, I LOVE it.  Work friendly, but still has a little spunk to it.  

Spring In My Step - 3 coats with top coat.  This is a milky pastel pink cream, almost neon pastel.  I had to use 3 coats because it does apply a little streaky, and it dries it definitely needs a top coat.  I used this as a base color in some upcoming nail art, so be sure to look out for that. :D

In A Lily Bit - 2 coats with top coat.  Such a pretty pastel purple cream.  Like Spring In My Step, it's a little milky and streaky, but not as bad.  I also used this as a base color for some upcoming nail art.

Petal To The Metal - 2 coats with top coat.  A warm, almost neon, pink/coral cream.  I only have one other coral-y color and I'm beginning to love them.  Great for summer toes :D

Strike A Rose - 2 coats with top coat.  Bright watermelon pink with shimmer.  As I was swatching this, I thought..."I need this on my toes NOW!"  I ended up doing a design, which is rare...but this baby is my next pedi color.

Thistle Do Nicely - 2 coats with top coat.  This electric pink cream is UBER bright.  As you can probably tell, my camera had a hard time photographing it, but it's pretty darn close without any editing.  I actually have this as a base color with a design on my toes right now and it's blinding.  I actually didn't have much of an issue with this for it being a neon.

Overall, I'm kinda torn with this collection.  I feel it's a little heavy on the pink's.  I know the other half has other colors, but at least 5/12 pink?  Some were a pain to apply, but totally worth it.   With the exception to Don't Honk Your Thorn, as far as the ones I received, they're all pretty bright(even the pastel ones) which I LOVE!

Make sure to keep an eye out for a couple of nail art designs I did with these.

  1. Some pretty cremes! I like that it goes from soft wearable shades to more bolder bright ones :)
