  1. I may have to wait for the swatches, because these colors don’t look that special to me.

    Oh! I bet that orange one would look great on my tanned skin! And that shade of green/yellow would really pop on dark skin!

    Ooh, the orange is gorgeous! (Says the girl with cool-toned skin who looks terrible in orange)

      I’m cool toned, and I have that colour on right now (my local salon put the collection out early, for some reason). It’s actually surprisingly flattering! I think it’s because it isn’t too deep.

    • Linnea

      don’t worry leahbobeah! I’m the same. :) Its always the case of wanting what we can’t have..

    • ValentinaB

      haha! That is cute! Exactly what I was thinking as well. :)

  4. i like these, but i’m a sucker for summer collections.

  5. Tynisha

    I’m not inspired.

    I was just wondering this morning what the next China Glaze collection would be like. I have to say it doesn’t look exiting. It seem like we have seen these colors before.

    • Joanne

      I don’t like the colors either. Nothing jumps out at me that I have to have it. Wonder what the fall and Holiday lines will be like?

  7. The colours may not look very exciting, but they’re very useful!
    Papaya Punch looks very similiar in colour to Sun Worshipper, which I LOVE, and a darkish purple shimmer, summer blue and gold green is always good to have. Electric Pineapple looks nice too.
    108 degrees doesn’t look like my type of colour, but I’m looking forward to swatches nonetheless! :P

  8. Heather

    meh… nothing special. Pass

  9. Beauty Secrets

    Don’t get me wrong I like CG, but they suck at bright colors…every single one I have ever purchased is thin and watery and impossible to get a smooth opaque cover with. I wouldn’t trust this orange or yellow.

  10. Linnea

    Kind of agree that they look boring, except for the orange. If its super pigmented, I think it could be a really interesting colour for summer.

    I MUST HAVE PAPAYA PUNCH AND ELECTRIC PINEAPPLE!!!!

  12. From the press pics, Senorita Bonita looks similar to Coconut Kiss – can’t wait to see swatches :)

  13. Anna

    i loveeee electric pineapple! that would look so good with a tan.

  14. Carrie

    108 degrees reminds me of Ahoy! from Anchors Away (I’m sure they aren’t -that- close but close enough to not interest me), and I think Zoya has beaten them to the punch when it comes to Senorita Bonita and Blue Iguana – yeah, these are shimmers are the Zoya polishes are cremes, but do you really need two brights in those shades?

  15. Jenna

    These are already available online, and in Canada, but no one has swatched!

    I don’t like any of these colors! Such a shame.

  17. Tekoa

    I have 5 of the 6 already. For some reason the local Chatters had them out early last week. Papaya Punch looks like atomic kraft dinner.

    • Sarah

      I always get my China Glaze polishes from Chatters, I’ll have to see if they’ve got this collection at my closest location!

  18. MJ

    I just can’t get excited about these. They just don’t look that unique. Maybe in person it will be better.

  19. Amanda Dubs

    The pink and the orange one are pretty awesome

  20. Aubree

    Love china glaze, but they’ve done these colours to DEATH for the summer! :[

  21. Samarium

    eh, I will get the orange but pass on the rest

  22. Promo pictures for nail polishes collections are notoriously misleading but I am really looking foward to a true lime green neon.

  23. They look like juicy cocktails! Yummy!

  24. reminds me of my first nail polish collection, the jungle colors from creative, in ’95 or ’96. they had a shimmery yellow that i loved…

  25. this looks the same as poolside collection but shimmery :s

  26. sarah

    electric pineapple looks pretty awesome, says the super pale girl that it would look like snot on!!

  27. Avatar of Kayvid Kayvid

    I want Papaya Punch!!!

  28. Sexy Sadie

    Any swatches some place yet?

  29. Avatar of Hilda Liz

    I must say I def like the poolside collection from last year much better. I feel like all these shades have been done except the pineapple one. Sadly I’m probably going to pass on these.

  30. puffnstuff

    looks like stuff theyve released in the past…except for the pineapple one. that one may be unique… :/ disappointed!

    • i love all of those colors does any body know where to get them from because i really really that summer collection xxxxxxx
