  13. Leiris

    Electric Pineapple looks pretty sweet!

  14. Mo

    Those colors are great! So vibrant!

  15. Carrie

    A lot of these remind me of shimmier, jelly finishes of Zoya’s Summertime collection. Oh well :)

  16. SThese are waaay better than the promo pics. I never trust promo pictures; they always are disappointing in comparison to the actual products or make you expect too much. I knew I was going to need Electric Pineapple!

  17. Stephanie

    Can’t wait to buy these!!!

  18. Rosa Ardiente

    These are all so beautiful! The promo pictures don’t do them justice!

  19. Cristina

    I think the name of the last one is Señorita Bonita, not Senorita.

    • That’s what the post says?

      • Cristina

        no, with an ñ, not an n. With the little curly line on top. You don’t have it on your keyboard, but it can be found on the character map on PCs.

        Sorry, it’s the Spelling Police within me to correct spelling mistakes like that, even if they’re in another language.

        • Sorry – we prefer not to use special characters because it can lead to funky errors when we have to do major transitions with the database that can span the entire length of our archive. It took us about 60 hours to correct it the last time.

  20. So Pretty!!!! Love the collection…..

  21. Melissa

    Orange green and yellow ones are hot !

  22. Oh, so pretty! They remind me of summer cocktails and pretty bathing suits :)

  23. aaminahs mom

  24. Avatar of Katie Katie

  37. megan

    these are pretty. Gosh I wish I had a job where I could wear bright colors and get away with it. But it’s a go cause I’ in the Air Force :/ Though I think Senorita Bonita could go well with my uniform lol

  38. Gladys

    I will definitely be buying Señorita Bonita. I can never have too many purples.

  39. leesie

    I cannot even get over how AMAZING these look compared to the promos we’d seen. Just…these are /stunning/. So bright and vibrant and…just plain fun. And I’m gonna need all of them.

  40. I love all of these, I wish it were summer already!!!!

  41. Jazz

    I want the entire collection, especially the orange, green , pink , and the purple. Must make a trip to sallys soon

  42. Sri

  43. Senorita Bonita looks pretty, but it looks a little sheer. :(

  44. kaTie

  45. Melanie

    I want Papaya Punch :)

  46. dovile

    Bye bye, Zoya, HELLO, CHINA GLAZE!!! I’ll definitely be getting this collection instead of the Zoya one. :D

    So I picked up Cha Cha Cha today! It’s gorgeous, but it does look quite a bit different from your swatch. It’s almost an exact dupe for Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear in Ivy League. Ivy League has some slight gold shimmer in it, however.

    I’m thinking of picking up Blue Iguana, because it looked SO amazing in the bottle at the store.
