China Glaze Papaya Punch

Ever since I first saw the preview for China Glaze Island Escape summer collection, I knew I had to have these colors. When I first saw some swatches for these, I admit I was a little disappointed. I almost considered not getting any of these, but I figured maybe if I got these I'd feel differently. I'm not showing you all of these at once, but I will say photographs do not do some of these polishes justice. These are far better in person. This next color I think kick started a love affair with orange polishes for me.

Papaya Punch
Papaya Punch is a bright orange yellow-creme.

I wouldn't say this is neon. It's definitely not as bright as last year's Poolside collection, but this color verges on neon. It is definitely an attention grabbing color. I absolutely love this color. I love it more because it's not a typical color for me, and it makes me want to get more oranges! I've seen this shade swatched on a lot of skin tones, and I haven't seen this look bad on anyone. I know it's stretch to say this is universally flattering, but I'd call it "one size fits most" vs. "one size fits all". I also think if you're not sure about orange, this maybe the color that sway your opinion!

Happy Monday!

  11. This is more orange than yellow. It does make a statement, it's not a shy color, but it's not as bright as some other polishes I've seen.
