A few days ago I received a few nail polishes from the Poolside Summer 2010 Collection by China Glaze. I tested the Pool Party nail polish first since you know my addiction for pink. If you are interested in my China Glaze colors visit their website.
Pool Party is one of the 6 colors included in the Poolside collection. It’s said to be a bright color, a neon pink, but I noticed a difference in color after I’ve applied the nail polish and I let it dry for couple of minutes.
I love the color in the bottle, that bright pink almost similar to fuchsia but after the nail polish dries it changes to a more orange peachy shade.
Pool Party – 3 coats
In the first photo (sorry for the poor quality) you can see the result after I layered 3 coats of Pool Party. The texture is matte so if you like matte nail polishes you should give this collection a try. I don’t like to layer more than 2 coats of polish but this one was not opaque and I couldn’t seem to get the real color with only 2 coats. I can’t say that I’m happy with those 3 coats either because it tends to be a little transparent towards the top of the nail, so I’ve applied one layer of top coat.
In my opinion the shiny Pool Party shade looks better but you can wear it as you please. The application was OK, I had not problems with the brush whatsoever, it just picked up enough product so everything went smoothly.

This was my first time when I’ve tried a nail polish from China Glaze and I have to say I expected more from it.
After the jump check out more photos with Pool Party nail polish after 3 days.

You know that I like to keep the polish on my nails for a few days to see if it’s really chip resistant, so I did the same test with this one. I struggle to keep it on my nails for 3 days but unfortunately I couldn’t resisted anymore so I had to take it off. See for yourself the result in the next photos.
Pool Party – no top coat- 3 days later
The polish is chipped badly and I’m disappointed to see this. You can imagine what’s my first impression about China Glaze products.
Now let’s check how those nails where I’ve applied top coat look like after 3 days.

The result is a little bit different then in the first photo but I still can’t say it’s a chip resistant nail polish. I kept it on my nails so long to see how much it can chip but I’m sure that many of you will remove it just after the second day.
Have you tried China Glaze nail polishes? How was your experience? Please share with me. 🙂
