China Glaze Towel Boy Toy NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 3 - 2010

A ‘propah’ Summer bright!  I’m making the most of my shorter nails and digging all the shades I wouldn’t normally be able to wear so well.

China Glaze Towel Boy Toy is from the Poolside collection of neons and summer WOW colours that China Glaze do so well.

Towel Boy Toy is a super bright blue with shimmer, and it’s the shimmer that makes this stand out for me.  It’s not a neon… and you can look at it quite comfortably without squinting!  The shimmer gives it a little lift and really does remind me of the depths of a swimming pool!

Application was a touch streaky and I’d recommend 3-4 coats.  It also dries matte (like many brights and neons do), so I added a top coat to bring back the gloss.  I think it needs it personally.

Have you tried any of the China Glaze Poolside shades?

    It looks amazing, a very cheerful shade. I love brights like these, they make me smile when I look at my nails.

    I have this one and it is great! I’ve also got Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, which is insanely bright, but so so fun because of it!
    I think I may put Towel Boy Toy on again soon, you’ve insipired me!

  4. I’m loving the trend of bright/bold colors on short nails!

  5. I got that color recently! I love except that I have to add a glossy top coat. I’m not a matte fan. I found it on clearance for only $1.99! Great bargain.

    Only thing I have tried of China Glaze is the topcoat which was pretty good if I can recall correctly (brain is not working well today and I could have dreamt that I used this!)

    I’ve tried Sun Worshipped and I am quite disappointed… It needs more than 5 layers for covering (sure, at 5 I got bored!) but it dries so quickly that I thought I have mistaken something. The problem is… on the web I’ve seen thousands of pictures before buying it (in Italy is not commercialized so I have to bought it on line, without really seeing it) and it looks like a warm sunshine yellow. In reality… well, bring an orange highlighter in your pencil case and try it on the paper. That’s the colour. Disappointing…

    I had this exact colour on my toes recently! While it did need a lot of coats, I was impressed by the wear. Two weeks on (hey, I was busy!) and no chipping by the time I switched polish.

  9. Wow!!! I’m so glad I ordered this online a few days ago, it looks gorgeous!! 🙂 (I haven’t received it yet)
