China Glaze Surprise and City Flourish Collection {Press Sample}

Ready for some cream and glitter polish?? I hope so, because that's what coming up today! I have some of the polishes from the Surprise and City Flourish Collections by China Glaze to show you! 

City Flourish is a line of cream and shimmer polishes. All three I have today are creams. I will have some of the shimmers for you another day! The Surprise Collection consists of beautiful glitter toppers! The color combinations of glitter in these toppers is really fun! I ended up polishing the glitter toppers over the cream polishes so you can see some possible pairings!

First up, I did two coats of Petal to the Metal, a gorgeous coral cream! The formula was pretty good! The first coat was a touch streaky, but it became opaque on the second coat! I topped it with one coat of I'm a Go Glitter, a clear base with fuchsia, light green, and light blue hexes! This glitter was easy to work with and I was satisfied with the amount of glitter I got with one coat!

What a Pansy is a purple-periwinkle cream polish that was perfect in two coats! Again, coat one was a little streaky, but coat two was great! I did accents with two coats of Create a Spark. This glitter topper has holographic light pink and periwinkle hexes, along with black hexes! I needed two coats because the first one was a little too sparse for my liking!

Finally, I have my favorite cream! Thistle Do Nicely is a gorgeous hot pink neon polish! Neons are terribly difficult to photograph, so these are the best I could do. This polish is very bright in person! I did two coats for the opacity you see below. I was really excited about this polish because a lot of neons require a base of white polish to make them pop, but Thistle Do Nicely is bright and opaque all on its own! The accent is one coat of Don't Be a Flake, which has blue, black, and holographic light pink hexes! Again, this polish was easy to use! Enjoy! :)
