China Glaze Pack Lightly

Once Christmas and New Years have come and gone, winter doesn't even exist for me nail polish wise. I'm done with winter polish, and I crave spring colors badly. I was excited after New Years when I went to Ulta they had the spring China Glaze collection already out. I have one of those polishes to share with you today.

Pack Lightly
Pack Lightly is a pastel peachy-pink with a subtle golden-pink shimmer.

Collection: China Glaze Road Trip Spring 2015

Color: I really like this peachy pink color. I think the appearance of pink polish especially interesting and unique pink polish has diminished in nail polish collections lately. I miss them, This is a really beautiful shade, and I love the shimmer. My issue is I wish the shimmer showed up more on the nail. That would make it amazing!

Formula: Meh. This formula was tricky. It was patchy and did not smooth or level evenly, as I'm sure you can tell. I used 3 coats. Not my favorite. Not the worst, but problematic, and disappointing considering I know how nice pastel formulas can be these days.

Price: I purchased this in the $7-$8 range at Ulta.

Overall: I do really like the color of Pack Lightly, but it's issues really take it down a notch. The shimmer is barely visible and the formula is not up to par. I really love this on appearance alone, but everything else just doesn't cut it.

My Rating: 2.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Monday!


  1. This looks great on you, but I agree about the shimmer. Why have shimmer in the bottle if it isn't going to show up on the nail?!

  2. Its a nice light pink. Nothing too unique though.

  3. I agree, out of all of the the shimmer was really subtle with this one. I think there just wasn't enough contrast with the base color. It's still very pretty though!

  4. I have this one today and I agree with your review 100%! The color is lovely but the formula is troublesome, without any shimmer on the nail. Good thing I love the color!
