China Glaze Summer Neons collection: Ride The Waves

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 26 - 2012

I love blue nails, yet rarely wear them myself.  I don’t know why that is… perhaps the fear of smurf fingers after removal (though I’m frequently advised that a smear of vaseline over your fingertips avoids the problem), or is it simply the primitive-ness of the hue? Perhaps I’m just scared it might make me look like Michael Howard’s lovechild (afterall, there is “something of the night” about me).

China Glaze Ride The Waves doesn’t really conjour up images of riding any kind of waves, it feels more traditionally maritime blue in a Royal Navy kinda way than all surfy n’ stuff.  Although most definitely a primary blue, the finish is all squishy and jelly-like to give some oomph to its character.  Unlike some of the other brights in the Summer Neons Collection, this one isn’t actually all that bright – though it does create an impact.  Application was fine but worth bearing in mind that it will prove to be a little sheer because of the jelly finish (the above photo shows three coats).

China Glaze Ride the Waves is available to buy instore from Sallys or online at RadiantBabe-Beauty, priced from £6.75

    For a blue, that is very pretty.
    Not sure I’d wear it during summer but perhaps I shall come back to it when the season changes 🙂

    This is lovely, I think it would look good on toes too! Vaseline helps, but so does a strong base coat. I love the depth to it. It doesn’t come across childish.

  3. Nuša says:

    I love the hint of dustiness that this polish brings, makes such a gorgeous blue!

    I love to be daring with my nail polish choices. I try to follow the season “rules” but sometimes if I really love the color, I’ll wear it anytime. As long as I use a base coat on my nails I haven’t had a problem with staining.

    I love that color, so pretty!
