China Glaze Pastels Collection

Pastel nail polishes tend to have streaky and patchy formulas, and often require three coats for full opacity. China Glaze released their Pastels collection this Spring and I have three of the new colours to show you. Let’s see if these nail polishes followed the usual pastel ways…

Let’s start with My Sweet Lady, a beautiful peony pink crème. This is the first one I tried and I was quite impressed with the formula because it was fully opaque with only two coats! I did go a bit thicker with my second coat, but that’s always what I do with pastels and most still need a third coat. Not this one, it was perfect with two coats. I then finished it off with a layer of top coat and this is the result.

Next up we have A Waltz In The Park, a beautiful cool-toned purple crème. This one also reached full opacity with two coats with a thicker second coat, and was finished with a top coat.

I saved my favourite colour for last: Spring Jungle, a light pistachio green crème. This one, like the other two, reached full opacity with two coats (thicker on the second) and was finished with a top coat. I mean, look at it!!! 😍

I was seriously impressed with the formula of these polishes. As I mentioned earlier, pastel polishes tend to be more work because of their formulas, but not these ones.

One thing to keep in mind is that you absolutely NEED a base coat for these. I first tried them without a base coat and the formula was HORRIBLE. However, a base coat fixed that issue. I always use a base coat, but am sometimes lazy and tired and try to save time by skipping it, but a base coat is a MUST.

  • These colours are gorgeous! I always love pinks and purples in the warmer months, and can see myself getting a lot of use out of both of those!
