China Glaze Avant Garden Collection gives nail polish lovers the best of both worlds -Pastel Petals and Blooming Brights! I decided to go with the Blooming Brights Collection since I already have soft pastels this year from Zoya. The Blooming Brights set contains six beautifully done nail colors with three shimmers and three creme formulas. I’m not gonna bore you with much of the details except that I had no trouble application wise. All swatches are two-three coats. I really wish China Glaze would follow suit with the wider brush like a lot of other companies but I’m biased because I have long wide nail beds.
Time for the swatches!!
Sunday Funday is a Sky Blue creme polish. I really love this color. This color is much brighter then Sation’s “Blue’s Sky’s the Limit” .
Mimosa’s Before Mani’s is a beautiful Coral Shimmer. This was one of my favorites out of the six. It is very reminiscent of L’oreal’s “Orange You Jealous” but with shimmer.
Fancy Pants is another beautiful purple/indigo polish with shimmer. This color showed up blue when I took a picture with my camera phone and posted it to instagram but it’s a gorgeous purple and will definitely turn heads.
Budding Romance is a murky greenish brown creme polish. It wasn’t one of my top choices out of the bunch but once on it did look nice. I feel this color would look better on those with lighter complexions.
Of all six Fancy Pants and Mimos’s before Mani’s were my favorites, I think this is a pretty good collection. I like how you have the option between pastels and brights. What do you think of the new colors. Will you be picking up any?
