    I’m currently on a self-imposed “do not buy more nail polish” period. I own over 120 bottles and some abstinence was due. But when this babies are out, I don’t think I will be able to refrain myself. The blues are just marvelous!

  2. Oh, now this is a spring collection I can get behind! Those colours are perfect watercolour hues and they look so good together! Nice to have some shimmers in there too, instead of plain old pastel cremes. That dusty pink in front and the sea green are my favourites!

    Can’t wait to see these! They’re such good prices too, even with shipping to the UK. Sunday Funday and Fade Into Hue may make up for being unable to get Illamasqua Cameo and Nobel :)

    I see myself buying the pastels selection and maybe the green, and two blues from the brights. Always looking for more greens and blues. I really enjoy the China Glaze formulations.

    Definitely loving all of the pastels.

    While I do like the collection, it’s not much different from colors they’ve carried before. I hope to see swatches soon so that we can get a better look. I’m still looking for a perfect modern emerald green for Pantone color of the year.

      Yeah, I was thinking the pink at the bottom right looks way too similar to Fifth Avenue (which I’m wearing today) in these pictures. It’s a shame as it seems to be included in both sets and is putting me off buying either, since I don’t have any of the others.

      (p.s. they seem to keep doing this? I’m sure the last couple of halloween and christmas collections had some old colours dressed up new – did CG get taken over by MAC?)

  7. They all look pretty, but I’m especially interested in the shade on the display that’s in the very bottom right corner…Life is Rosy? :)

  8. They do look similar to colors from previous collections but they’re gorgeous nonetheless. I like the brights a little more than the pastels though. But both sets are pretty and would be good for Spring and Summer.

    I agree the prices even with shipping are better than we can get here in Europe but with the newly imposed restrictions I’m not getting too excited… Although many of these are really lovely!
