Today I have some fun Spring shades to share with you from the China Glaze City Flourish collection! I usually put full collections in one post, but since I received this set of 6 from China Glaze to review, I loved the shades and ordered the remaining 6. Once those are in, I will post those up as well!
China Glaze City Flourish is made up of a mix of vibrant pastels and hot neon shades. Even the pastels have a nice, hot pop to them!
Take a look!
At Vase Value
At Vase Value is a bright baby blue creme. I needed 3 coats for this photo as the first 2 coats were streaky and typical pastel formula. I adore this color, so 3 coats was definitely worth it to me. At Vase Value will get worn by me a lot this season!
Grass Is Lime Greener
Grass Is Lime Greener is an odd one for me to describe. It is a neon pastel creme. It has the typical pastel streaky formula on the first 2 coats, but nice and even on the third coat. Again, I love the color so I would continue to use it despite needing 3 coats.
Metro Pollen-tin is a neon peach creme. I used 3 thin coats for this photo. The first coat was slightly streaky, the second one evened it out, but I did need a third coat for complete coverage. The color is pretty but didn’t agree with my skin tone. Definitely a possible nail art shade for me.
Lotus Begin is a neon lavender creme. I used 3 thin coats for this photo as well. Again, first 2 coats on the streaky side, but the third coat was even. Another gorgeous shade I’ll wear this season (it’s purple… and you know me with purple).
What A Pansy
What A Pansy is a purple toned medium periwinkle creme. The best formula of the 6 I received and only needed 2 coats.
Peonies & Park Ave
Peonies & Park Ave is a color that flipped my camera out completely. This is a neon pink creme. I had some issues with it not wanting to level out, but aside from that, it’s a gorgeous shade. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
As you saw from my descriptions, 5 of the 6 shades needed 3 coats for complete coverage without streaks. I’m a patient person, so it’s not an issue for me. The colors are worth it and only 1 of the 6 didn’t work for me (color preference and skin tone clashing). As I stated way at the top, I’ve already ordered the remaining 6 for this collection because I do love the neon and bright pastel shades in it. It’s really up to you to decide if 3 coats are worth it for you. This collection screams Spring for me though and I’m loving it!
