China Glaze Off Shore Collection Swatches and Review - Part 2

Today its time for part 2 of my China Glaze Off Shore swatches! This is the "Stoked To Be Soaked" half of the collection. You can see part one here.

It was evident a couple of swatches in that I preferred this half of the collection. It just feels much more summery, and they all dry glossy with the exception of one. Again the formulas are generally pretty good, much better than City Flourish.

Sun Upon My Skin is a rather beautiful, very cheery yellow creme. This has a great formula for a yellow, no streaks and was perfect in 3 thin coats (you could maybe get away with just 2!) no top coat

If In Doubt, Surf It Out is a peachy orange creme. 2 coats, no top coat

Stoked To Be Soaked is a bright juicy orange creme. I've seen other blogs say this contains some shimmer, but mine doesn't! 2 easy coats, no top coat

Shore Enuff is a bright green which was SO hard to capture. It leans a bit more lime in real life. This was the only one to have a bit of a difficult formula, it was quite streaky but evened out with 3 coats. This one dries semi-matte, so I added a top coat.

Be More Pacific is a pale lime green. I love this one, it's muted but so summery. 2 coats, no top coat

Lastly, Seas The Day is a raspberry creme/jelly. Super good formula! 2 coats, no top coat

And that's the end of the Off Shore collection! I can't find many faults with this collection overall, a couple of fiddly formulas but out of 12 polishes that's not bad at all. There really is a colour for everyone in here!

My Picks: Sun Upon My Skin, Be More Pacific & If In Doubt, Surf It Out
