China Glaze Sneak Preview – Kicks Collection

By on March 6, 2009
in China Glaze, Summer 2009
Exciting news kids!! Just when I thought we’d seen everything China Glaze has to offer for Spring & Summer, along comes another fun collection, Kicks. It’s an explosion of bright, fun color in twelve vivid shades. The best part… there’s TWO FANTASTIC GREENS! I vote that, as a rule, China Glaze includes at least one new green in each collection. You’re 3 for 3 in 2009 so keep it up!

Check out my preview swatches after the jump!

I don’t have names yet but how perfectly summer are these colors? I want to wear them all at once. I just need two extra fingers! Eight of the polishes contain subtle shimmer to add depth and a hint of sparkle while the other four are cremes.

So I was just dying to try the lighter, limey green. Plus, I wasn’t happy with how it looked in the art wheel picture. It just didn’t represent the color accurately. So I added a quick nail swatch for you. As you can see, it’s extremely vibrant but not neon. Looking at it compared to last spring’s Tree Hugger, TH is more muted. As if you turned the brightness up on Tree Hugger. Loves it!
The China Glaze Kicks collection will launch in late April/early May. Stay tuned for a full review and nail swatches.

    Arrgh, China Glaze! I’ve spent the last week stopping myself from ordering Summer Days (haven’t even tried all the polishes from my last order yet…) and now they come out with another 12 shades! That green does look much prettier on the nails, so summery, like lime slush! Can’t wait to see the full swatches!

    Oh.My.Gosh. I thought Summer Days was my favorite collection, but this one might take its place! I’m definitely going to get all the colors in the first pic. That turquoise is one of the most gorgeous colors I’ve ever seen!

    Hi Michelle:

    I’m excited for the 2 blues and the lime green (not the one that you showed on your nails) some of the oranges look the same.. also, on the second row, far left..that looks EXACTLY like OPI’s Pompeii Purple to me. Thoughts?
