Live Love Polish: China Glaze Nail Polish Swatches, Review, & Nail Art

Hello, all! I've got a bright review to share with you all today! I've partnered with a brand new nail polish retailer called Live Love Polish to bring you swatches of the most popular polishes available today. Live Love Polish is brought to us by the same folks who brought us Nailpolis and they carry brands like China Glaze, Model's Own, LVX, NCLA and many more! They curate polishes for their buyers, so instead of having to browse through hundreds and hundreds of polishes from a single brand, they've hand selected the most popular and quality polishes from each brand to choose from. 

Today, I'm reviewing a few polishes from the China Glaze Off Shore collection. Read through to the end for a discount code and some fun nail art as well :) 

Feel The Breeze
Oh. My. Word. I am obsessed with this pink. As it's from China Glaze's summer neon collection, this is a vibrant carnation pink that is practically opaque in just one coat (though you'll need two). I've heard people had trouble with the formula on this one and, though it's definitely on the thicker side, I found it easy enough to work with. It dried to a matte satin finish and I added a top coat for these photos.
This is a neon tangerine creme with another great formula. It was much thinner and slightly easier to work with than Feel the Breeze (which is saying a lot since FtB was easy to work with), but I did end up needing 3 coats to reach full opacity on this one. I love my oranges and this is a great addition to my collection.
Shore Enuff is a neon spring green and just screams summer to me...though now that Halloween is fast approaching I'm seeing this easily used in a fun holiday themed look! I'll have to think on that! As with most neons, this dried to a flat matte finish and was surprisingly good at leveling itself out after each coat. This was a very thin formula so shown is actually 4 thin coats, but it was an easy 4 coats and I don't feel like I've got a ton of polish on my nails.
This is a really interesting shade! It's a bright blue but has some teal undertones to it and it's quite lovely and unique. The formula was nice as well, only needing 3 thin coats to reach opacity. This is definitely more of a summery shade, but hey,who says you can't wear bright blue year round? ;) I tried my best to get these as color accurate as possible, but this is just one of those polishes that doesn't play nice with cameras. 
I know we're moving into the fall season, but I'm still hanging onto the summer shades. Since these colors are so in your face, I decided to paint some 'in your face' comic book pop art nail art with these colors! 
Overall, these are pretty standard shades, though they have great formulas and will be a great addition to most collections, in my opinion. I'm really in love with that pink! These are all available now through the Live Love Polish site for $7.50/bottle - use the code LIVELOVEWONDROUSLY for 10% off your order for the next 2 weeks!
