China Glaze Spring 2015 Road Trip Collection: Swatches + Review Part 1

Hi everyone! Today I am finally sharing a collection that I’ve had for a while now, but just got around to swatching recently. I didn’t want to let it pass by completely because there are some gorgeous shades here! I might be the last one on the boat here, but it was worth the wait 🙂 This is the

There is a nice mix of formulas and shades in this collection. There is a total of 12 polishes that range from jellies to crellies and from shimmers to cremes. I purchased these at my local beauty supply store. Let’s take a look at the first 6 from the collection!

More To Explore

This is a gorgeous neon-y peach. It was streaky on the 1st coat, naturally being a neon. It was still pretty patchy on the 2nd coat. It took a full 3 coats to even out this polish. Be careful to not overload your brush because you will flood your cuticles.

Pack Lightly

This is a pastel almost blush peach with iridescent shimmer. It was again patchy on the 1st and 2nd coat. This had a very similar formula to More To Explore. The shimmer was very noticeable on this one. This is 3 full coats.

Pinking Out The Window

This is a medium carnation pink. It’s very bright and gorgeous! This is the first one I swatched with no shimmer. I like this much better, I’m really not a huge fan of the iridescent colored shimmer. The formula was ok. This is 3 coats.

Dashboard Dreamer

This is a baby blue with iridescent shimmer. The no-shimmer polish streak didn’t last lol! The formula was difficult again, very similar to the polishes with the same type of shimmer. It’s probably best to do 3 thin coats. Here I did 3 coats.

Boho Blues

This is a gorgeous periwinkle blue with NO shimmer 🙂 Yay! The formula is much better and easier to apply. It evens out in 2.5 coats because on some nails I had to do a 3rd coat.

Wanderlust

This is a pretty lilac with iridescent shimmer. I love the name of this polish, but don’t care for the formula too much. It was streaky, patchy, and the same mehhh formula as his shimmer-filled cousins in this collection. This is 3 coats.

China Glaze is 3-FREE so that means it doesn’t contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, or DBP. China Glaze retails for about $7.50 or less in the US and is sold at Ulta, Sally Beauty Supply, and local beauty supply stores. There is a mini set of this collection that I’ve seen at Ulta and on eBay.

Tomorrow I will have the second half of this collection! What did you think of these? Which one was your favorite? My fave from this bunch are More To Explore and Boho Blues! I’m always drawn to neons because of the instant tan I get when I wear them and this blue is just perfect for Spring or Summer.

Stay strong in your Pursuit!
