China Glaze Spring 2015 Road Trip Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Today I have the China Glaze Road Trip Collection for Spring 2015 and I am actually really happy with this collection.  The colors are vibrant and the shades with warm coppery shimmer are just beautiful.  I am so ready for Spring colors and it’s nice to start seeing pops of bright shades after months of deep vampy ones.  Don’t get me wrong, I still love my vampy lacquers, but the sun is coming out and I’m ready for Spring!

This is a 12 piece collection full of creme shades that look great alone, or will make beautiful base colors for fun glitters.

Trip Of A Lime Time

Trip Of A Lime Time

Trip Of A Lime Time is a yellow leaning lime creme.  I had a little issue with application for Trip of a Lime Time and it was streaky for me.  I used 3 coats for these photos and on the third coat it seemed to cover the streaks.

My Way Or The Highway

My Way Or The Highway

My Way Or The Highway is a vibrant turquoise creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos and did not experience any staining with this shade.

Boho Blues

Boho Blues

This is my favorite shade in the collection. I loved the shimmers you will see in a moment, but this color is just amazing.  Boho Blues is a soft indigo creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

More To Explore

More To Explore

More To Explore is a bright, yet soft coral creme.  I was rather impressed that the formula for this was so easy to work with, I have similar shades that were streaky but this was spot on.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Pinking Out The Window

Pinking Out The Window

Pinking Out The Window is a pink salmon creme.  Again, beautiful formula and easy to work with.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

I Brake For Colour is another favorite of mine.  This is a vibrant pink leaning red creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Pop The Trunk

Pop The Trunk

Pop The Trunk is a bright orange creme.  When I saw the bottles of Pop The Trunk and I Brake For Colour side by side, they looked really close together, but on the nail there is an obvious difference.  Both are really pretty though and a perfect formula.

These photos have 2 coats.

Sun’s Up, Top Down

Suns Up Top Down

I saved the shimmery shades for last!

Sun’s Up, Top Down is a bright, sunny yellow with copper shimmer.  The shimmer isn’t a loud shimmer, but when lighting hits it just right, it’s amazing.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.  I did notice that my bottle of Sun’s Up, Top Down was a little on the thick side which made application tricky, but it was also not tightened all the way when it arrived, so I don’t know if it thickened a little in transit or if that’s just how it is.

Dashboard Dreamer is a complete Cinderella like color.  This is a beautiful powder blue with fine coppery shimmer.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Overview

I am really happy with this collection for Spring.  I love the route China Glaze went with the 4 shimmery shades and a small part of me wishes all 12 shades had that same shimmer.  Overall application wasn’t bad at all for these shades, I only had issues with Trip of a Lime Time and Sun’s Up Top Down, the rest applied smooth and creamy.

Price: $7.50 Each

I picked up Suns up, top down and wanderlust today and I found that wanderlust was really streaky and difficult to apply! But I love the shades regardless. They’re beautiful colors and I can’t wait to use them in nail art
