As promised, here is part II of China Glaze’s new Kicks collection for summer 2009. I didn’t like these quite as much as the first collection. The colors aren’t as interesting and original as I had hoped. I think I am having bright summer polish backlash right now! I am dreaming of dark, creamy, vampy shimmers… It’s funny, I much prefer the weather in spring/summer, but I much prefer the nail polish colors in fall/winter. Such a paradox! Pics taken in sun with no top coat.
Breakin’ was a really nice bright tangerine with yellow shimmer that actually FOR ONCE flattered my skin tone! It was really creamy and nice and I only needed two coats.
Laced Up is a pretty bright medium pink creme. It was pretty, but nothing spectacular in my view. It also had a nice application and was only two coats.
Style Wars is just whatever to me. I am getting really tired of this color, it seems every brand has put out a color like this recently. It’s a orange/red creme and it wasn’t as opaque so I used three coats.
Sneaker Head is another one I don’t feel is very original. Been there, done that. It is pretty, just overdone lately. It’s what I would call a bright strawberry red creme. This was two coats.
Oh How Street It Is is another orange/red creme, this one is less orange than Style Wars but a bit similar. It’s more of a tomato red. This was three coats.
B-Girlz is the only other color I really liked from these six (aside from Breakin’). I am not huge on most pinks, but this one is so pretty! It’s shimmery, leans towards the cool side and has a blue flash that I really like. Great application, I only needed two coats.
What do you guys think, do you like this collection or the first one better? Will you be getting any of these?
