China Glaze Up & Away


This collection says one thing: FUN!

I love the bright, cream-based colors that this collection offers, and it just in time for the Spring/Summer.  Although I’ve yet to actually get my hands on any of the polishes, I already know which ones I want.  I’ll definitely be picking up Heli-Yum (a bright Raspberry shade), Four Leaf Clover (a bright Kelly green), and High Hopes (a bright Guava shade).  There’s a fun yellow in the collection, Happy Go Lucky, that I’ll definitely consider picking up as well.  The collection is available at: TransDesign, 8ty8beauty, and Head2toebeauty.  In total, there are 12 shades in the collection and is one of the first Spring collections that China Glaze has released for 2010.  I’ll be posting swatches as soon as I get my hands on those lovely colors.  In the meantime, if you have picked up any, let me know you think about them.  Feel free to send my an @reply on Twitter of a Twitpic or Tweetphoto of them, I’d love to see any swatches you all may have.

ooh, I love this Up and Away collection, unfortunately, the only one I was disappointed in was Happy Go Lucky, which I really looked forward too... The application wasn't too good with it.
Anyhow, you can find swatches on all of these in my blog under the category "swatches".

Yeah, its such a fun collection! I saw the swatch of Happy Go Lucky on you blog and it did look really pretty. That's unfortunate that it didn't have good application. I guess there's always one bad apple in the bunch.
