China Glaze - Highlight of my Summer

Hi guys!  I had the HARDEST time trying to find this collection.  None of the Sally's near me are carrying it (but they are carrying last year's ChG summer neons, WTH?), and all three Ulta's near me, were sold out of the three colors I wanted.  So I broke down and went to the nail supply store I usually find colors that are sold out elsewhere (or they have new collections like the new ChG Feather Finish collection), but even they were sold out of the colors I wanted, so I broke down and bought the 6 pack of the cremes, and I'm glad I did.  Not only was it actually cheaper that way (this nail supply never has prices posted, so I was scared it was going to be like $50), but I realized I wanted all the cremes in this collection, lol!


So first up is the color I wanted the most, Highlight of my Summer.  It's a neon, pastel, pistachio color.  Neon pastel you ask?  Yes, seriously, that's the best description of these colors.  I tried my best to get these color accurate, but I failed....failed I tell you!  This is way more bright than I could capture.


The formula on this was fine.  The PolishAholic seemed to have a lot of issues with her polishes.  I had no difficulty with this one (and Bottoms Up, which is on my toes right now).  While it was a little streaky (really, not bad at all), it was fine at two coats, though a few of my nails on my left hand could have used a third coat.


I heart this color so much, and think it would look great on my tootsies, which I might have to try next.  I'm also super glad I got ALL the cremes, so be on the lookout for those!

  2. Sally's didn't pick up this collection for some reason. I asked China Glaze on Facebook. I had to order the cream pack.

  4. I've heard SO many different things about the formula for this collection that I don't know what to believe, which means I will be paying extra attention to what you have to say about them! ;) This looks so perfect for summer.

  6. I had heard that some people were able to find this collection at select Sally's, and I was hoping one of my local ones would have it. I'm glad I got it where I did though.

  7. I'm conflicted, I really think the formula are easy to apply (I've worn three so far). But they are streaky. But I feel like they are regular creme streakiness. You'll be find, since your a habitual 3 coater! : ) I was really worried after Jen from The PolishAholic's review! I was expecting something like a draggy holo or something. They really haven't been bad.

  8. Finally I read of someone like me! I was starting to think I'm somehow mad...but I have got them all and I definitely didn't have all those issues ThePolishAholic wrote about.
    My bottles are quite good, this one -as you said- is quite streaky at first but in only two coats things turn out fine.
    I can understand their formula is far from the perfection CG got us used to, but they're not the hell I read of. I'm happy with my SunSational babies <3

  10. Even more bright?! I am just not that much into neons so I don't really feel like I need these.. but this looks pretty!

  11. I'm glad I'm not the only one who really didn't have problems with these polishes! Cause they are so worth the extra effort.

  12. I actually think you would probably like these! They really aren't your typical eye searing neon's (which I happen to like), but they are somehow muted. And I bet you would actually really like this one!
