China Glaze Summer 2018 collection, Shades of Paradise

New Release: China Glaze — Paradise (Summer 2018)

Collection: China Glaze 2018 Summer, Shades of Paradise

China Glaze’s Summer 2018 collection, Shades of Paradise, consists of twelve new shades of nail lacquer.

From China Glaze:

This summer, get some color. No tanning necessary. Just dip your tips in these sea-blue shimmers and bask in the pinky-purple warmth of these tropical sunset crèmes.

Here they are…is it just me, or are China Glaze’s new descriptions sounding rather a lot like those of a competing brand?

China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Life's Grimm, swatch

China Glaze — Life’s Grimm (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Happy Halloween! 🎃

Collection: China Glaze 2017 Fall, Happily Never After (Halloween)

Today’s polish is from China Glaze’s recently released Halloween-themed collection. You can check out my other reviews from this collection:

Life’s Grimm (84084) is a blackened pewter olive with a charcoal base and plenty of antiqued green-gold shimmer.

The Grimm fairy tales are, of course, quite terrifying in their original, un-Disney-fied forms, and make a perfect Halloween theme.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Crown for Whatever, swatch

China Glaze — Crown for Whatever (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: China Glaze 2017 Fall, Happily Never After (Halloween)

I don’t usually pick up mattes, but Crown for Whatever from China Glaze’s recently released Halloween-themed collection still caught my eye. (I’ve previously reviewed Queen, Please! and Sin-derella from this collection.)

Crown for Whatever (84083) is a deep, indigo purple with extremely subtle, fine fuchsia shimmer. It dries matte. I am not usually a huge fan of the matte look, but this one is quite striking and I probably the first matte I’d consider wearing without a glossy top coat over it!

China Glaze — Queen, Please! (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: China Glaze 2017 Fall, Happily Never After (Halloween)

2017-10-27 EDIT: I’ve layered Queen, Please! over Crown for Whatever, and added the swatch photos at the end of this review. Worth it.

This is another stunner from China Glaze’s recently released Halloween-themed collection. I’ve previously reviewed Sin-derella, which is drop dead gorgeous.

Queen, Please! (84079) is a sheer but extremely shimmery, pale pinked champagne microglitter with a golden mint flash.

China Glaze — Sin-derella (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: China Glaze 2017 Fall, Happily Never After (Halloween)

Have I got a gorgeous polish for you guys, today!

China Glaze recently released their Halloween-themed collection, which incorporates some clever fairy tale darkness. (Seriously, those original fairy tales are pretty gruesome!)

Sin-derella (84080) is a shimmery shade with loads of iridescence. The base color is a beige-y taupe, but it picks up a slightly olive tone with the addition of some fine gold shimmer. It also contains a load of pink shimmer that, in combination with taupe, gives it the look of lavender.

China Glaze Happily Never After, Halloween Fall 2017 Collection

New Release & Haulage: China Glaze — Happily Never After (Halloween 2017)

Collection: China Glaze 2017 Halloween, Happily Never After

China Glaze’s devilishly clever Halloween 2017 collection is named Happily Never After, with a spooky fairy tale theme.

Celebrate your dark side with Happily Never After, a sultry collection of enchanting shades.

OK, that copy is a little less clever. Oh well.

But I think it’s so refreshing to have a Halloween collection that isn’t all orange, green, and black!

[Edit: I have now reviewed Sin-derella.]

Here are the 6 new shades:
