China Glaze Avant Garden Collection for Spring 2013 – part I


Spring has sprung, darlings! And China Glaze has me all in the spirit with their beautiful Avant Garden collection. China Glaze does Spring collections beautifully so I expected great things from this one. And the good news is – they didn’t disappoint. I received this collection to review so check out part I of the Avant Garden collection.


Pink-ie Promise is an iridescent baby pink and she’s got a cute name, but there really isn’t anything too spectacular about this pink.


Keep Calm, Paint On is a sea foam green. I can’t get enough of this shade. China Glaze has given us beautifully sea foam greens before but this one is some kind of special. And the name is awesome too.


Dandy Lyin’ Around is a shimmery vanilla icing and ZOMG, I love this one. It’s a simple color really but these are the kind of shades I go for when I want a lil’ somethin’ that’s not too over the top. You’ll need a good 3 coats for this one.


Tart-y for the Party is a lavender creme with a nice and smooth finish. Nothing fancy.


Life Is Rosy is a blushed mauve and as Grandmotherly as this polish is, I absolutely adore it. Seriously. It’s one of my favorites in this bunch.


Fade Into Hue is a periwinkle creme that applied beautifully.
