China Glaze Love’s a Beach Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Love’s a Beach Nail Lacquer ($6.49 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “sizzling hot pink.” It sizzles, all right! It’s a brightened neon pink with subtle yellow undertones and fine white shimmer. MAC Girl About Town is darker, blue-based, and has no shimmer. Zoya Reagan is purpler, cooler-toned, and has a cream finish. MAC Toco Toucan is darker and bluer. Essie Super Bossa Nova is more fuchsia and a bit darker. Urban Decay Woodstock is similar but a cream finish. Illamasqua Collide is a cream finish and doesn’t have shimmer–so it doesn’t look as pink.

It was fully opaque after two coats, though the consistency was surprisingly on the thick side (as were many of the shades from this collection–at least the ones I’ve swatched so far). Not so thick that it’s really gloppy and unmanageable, but thick enough where you do have to be more concerned about pooling around the edges. I didn’t experience it with this shade, partially because I was more aware of the potential for it. It took a bit longer than average for each coat to dry, and I really recommend waiting between coats to avoid drag.
