Believe it or not, the sun is actually shining here in Manchester today! The thought of summer really got me in the mood for trying out another of the China Glaze Sunsational Nail Polishes – this one is Isle See You Later.
I am a total sucker for blue nail polish, even though it’s not particularly one of my favourite colours. As a little girl I always thought it looked cool on the nails, and that has carried over!
From trying out one of the other Sunsational polishes, I knew that they were quite sheer, and expected the same for Isle See You Later. As they are for summer, I think this is quite a fun change from bold, block colours.
I applied a base coat, and then built up coats of the nail polish. It was a little more sheer than I had anticipated, and had to apply 4 coats to achieve the look I was after. Here’s how it looked!
I love the ‘jelly’ effect of the polish (my sister and I were chatting that’s how we described the finished look!) and think it works really well for those warm, summer days. If you wanted to make the look a bit bolder, you could always use this as a top coat over another blue shade to brighten it up.
It would also work super well over a white polish, which I think I will do next time. What do you guys think?
Again, thank you to BeautyBay for sending these polishes over!
