China Glaze Sunsational Collection :: Review


China Glaze is making waves with the new Sunsational Collection! This summer collection is perfect for adding a bold pop of color to your mani or pedi. Sunsational features 12 hot hues in both crème and jelly finishes. Yes, you read that correctly: I said JELLIES! This fun palette of six brighter-than-bright crèmes and six juicy jelly polishes create a bold pop or sheer hint of color that are sure to see you through every highlight of your summer.


Let's start with the cremes. I really like these pastel shades with a kick. They pair perfectly with summer trends. These were very easy to apply. You can probably get away with one coat for most colors.


Top Row L to R :: Bottoms Up | passionate bubblegum pink-purple crème, Highlight of My Summer | mellow mint green crème, Neon & On & On | flirtatious pink crème 

Bottom Row L to R :: Sun of a Peach | popping peachy crème, That’s Shore Bright | playful purple crème, Too Yacht to Handle | teasing teal crème 


Then we have the jellies. These are bright and bold pops of color. The jellies definitely have a different consistency. I found them harder to apply. I needed as many as three coats to cover for some colors. You could also do fewer coats for a more sheer look. I do like the effect of the jellies though. They look very different than the cremes after application.


Top Row L to R :: You Drive Me Coconuts | panic-causing pinkish-purple jelly, Shell-O | juicy coral-pink jelly, Keepin’ It Teal | totally turned up turquoise jelly

Bottom Row L to R :: Heat Index | enticing pink jelly, Are You Jelly? | vivacious purple jelly, Isle See You Later | marine blue jelly


This is a really hot collection - perfect for your Sunsational Summer! My favorite colors are Neon & On & On and Too Yacht to Handle. What colors do you want to try?
