Today I will be sharing with you the creme colors. So this is not repetitive, I used three coats for each swatch you’ll be seeing. Two just wasn’t enough for me and the third really evened out all of the streaky problems I had. Enjoy!
*Disclaimer – These were fairly difficult to photograph. I tried to slightly color correct them as best as I could in Picasa, but the colors still may be off*
Bottoms Up – A fun bright bubblegum neon pink. So much brighter and vibrant in person. This was a bit streaky to work with, but because the color is so gorgeous, I didn’t mind at all!
Highlight Of My Summer – Neon mint green. This was my least favorite to swatch. You guys know I am a huge fan of anything & everything mint green, but this formula was HORRIBLE. I don’t know what happened China Glaze! It was so difficult to work with that I ended up giving up after awhile and set it off to the side until I was less frustrated. Such a shame because the color is to die for!
Neon & On & On – Pink neon that has a bit of a coral undertone to it. Application was definitely way better than Highlight. It reminds me of Pool Party’s little sister!
Sun Of A Peach – The BEST polish name ever! This is a gorgeous peach that is definitely neon! I couldn’t get the camera to correctly pick up the color, but it is definitely BRIGHT! LOVE it!
That’s Shore Bright – Bright purple creme. This definitely has to be one of my favorites in this creme set. I love bright purples and this is going to be so much fun to wear on my toes! No application issues with this at all – It was pretty easy to apply.
Too Yacht To Handle – This one was so tricky to photograph. On my nails it’s a gorgeous bright teal, but when I photographed it the color was showing a robin’s egg blue. I tried to take photos in all sorts of different light settings and this was the closest I could come by. I didn’t have any problems with this application either.
Overall, I am really enjoying the creme portion of this collection! The formula’s aren’t the best but they aren’t the worst either. You definitely have to have some patience while applying them. Just take your time and make sure you smooth them out with a great top coat. These are definitely not polishes you can rush with.
What are your top picks? Love them or skip?

Love son of a peach
Lizzy O. The DIY Lady says
I sort of want all of these actually. Doesn’t usually happen with me. Maybe it’s just your swatches. lol.. they’re gorgeous!
I love the finishes, and I can only imagine how they’d look with topcoat.
I want to thank you for your honesty about the formula for Highlight of
my Summer. I’ve had the same issue as you. Even though i do love this shade so much, i probably won’t wear it again bc it was too much of a pain to apply. I’ve read and asked many people about their experiences but no
one wants to admit it! Either that or not all of them have the same crappy
formula?? Anyways thanks again for these swatches. I might go back for
Too Yact to Handle and That’s Shore Bright. I did buy the purple from the jelly collection and i’m not really a fan maybe if i layer it over white..

Emily Lacquerologist says
Mmmm….trying to resist buying all of these. I keep hearing that the formula is difficult on some of them though! Too Yacht To Handle must be mine though!!
Cosmetic Sanctuary says
Beautiful job! I’m in love with these colors despite the formula issues
A Girl and Her Polish says
Fantastic swatches! Not sure if I want them or not due to the iffy formula. 🙁
Essie Rae says
Beautiful! I love them all!
Samarium's Swatches says
I LOVE neon on and on!
I just bought Highlight of my Summer and had the same problem. It really stinks because I just love the color.
