I recently bought the entire collection of China Glaze’s Sunsational (Summer 2013 colors). It was first dubbed as Neons – On The Shore, but they changed the name at the last minute. The Sunsational collection has 6 cremes and 6 jellies. I knew I wanted to try the jellies right away. Jellies are starting to be very popular. I love polishes with a jelly finish to them because they are perfect for jelly sandwich manicures!
Here’s a jelly sandwich mani version using Shell-o and Funky Fingers’ Confetti. This is one coat of Confetti and topped off with one coat of Shell-o.
Isle See You Later is an electric blue jelly. Four coats on and there is VNL (visible nail line). The formula wasn’t good. I couldn’t get the polish to go on evenly. Isle See You Later was way too thin for my liking. There’s some mild streaking issues as well. I think if one were to use this, it’s probably better off with some white undies.
You Drive Me Coconuts is a neon pink raspberry jelly. Three coats to full opacity. The color is so bold and perfect for the summertime. I’m crazy for it! No issues with the formula.
Are You Jelly? is a bold purple jelly. Three coats to opacity. Formula was great. It’s my favorite jelly from this collection!
Heat Index is a neon hot pink jelly. It is the truest jelly from this collection. A good classic neon hot pink jelly. One can’t go wrong with having this type of polish in their collection. This is three coats and there’s still some VNL. However, the polish applied on evenly and the formula was good.
Keepin’ It Teal is a sea green jelly with a teal undertone. It’s also what I consider to be a true jelly. Three coats to opacity. There’s some light VNL however formula is good. It applies evenly and there’s no streaking or bald spots.
This sums up the 6 jellies from China Glaze’s new Sunsational collection. I do wish China Glaze was more consistent in their formula for polish. It would’ve been nice if the jellies were all of the same consistency. I was disappointed with Isle See You Later. I had such high hopes for that one. Would I recommend this collection? Not as a whole. However, I do recommend all the jellies minus the Isle See You Later.
China Glaze’s Sunsational cremes are coming up next! 🙂
