China Glaze Sunsational Swatches & Review Part 2 The Jellies
I showed you Part 1 earlier tonight, and I honestly didn’t expect to get Part 2 done so quickly! The China Glaze Sunsational Collection contained 6 cremes and 6 jellies – Part 1 was the cremes, so now it’s time for the jellies!
Ready to see the jellies? Take a look!
You Drive Me Coconuts:
You Drive Me Coconuts was my favorite of the 6 jellies! Why? Well for starters it’s a gorgeous hot neon pink. The other reason? It took 2 coats for good opacity. That’s right – TWO! I love jellies that save me time!
Heat Index is another neon pink in the collection, slightly lighter than You Drive Me Coconuts. I used 3 coats for this photo, and it’s another gorgeous jelly!
Another favorite! I’ve used this about 4 times now before I did this review. Shell-O is a neon coral jelly. Perfect for summer!
Are You Jelly?:
I love the name for this one! Are You Jelly is a bright (but I wouldn’t call it neon) purple jelly. This one required 3 coats, which is about what is expected of a jelly!
Keepin’ It Teal:
Keepin’ It Teal was a little sheerer than the previous 4. I needed 4 coats for this lovely bright teal color. I wouldn’t classify this as a neon either – but it is bright!
Isle See You Later:
This one was the flop for me – and I hate to say that about polish. I LOVE polish. Isle See You Later required 6 coats for me to be happy with the opacity. That’s right. SIX. Part of the issue was me, I’ll admit that. I have slightly yellow tinged tips from a swatchfest I did and I was out of basecoat, and really – I asked for the nail staining I got. It’s growing out, but even at 5 coats, you could see the staining through the polish. If you don’t have staining – 4 or 5 coats should work. If you do – good luck. Isle See You Later is a blue jelly, again, not neon, but it is bright.
The 6 Jellies were honestly hit and miss, some were phenomenal while others just weren’t up to par for me. I don’t think I will hassle with Isle See You Later again, but my top pics that I will use again are Heat Index, You Drive Me Coconuts and Shell-O. The Cremes were definitely more “me”. Really, it’s preference though!
