China Glaze Off Shore Collection Summer 2014 – Stoked To Be Soaked

PurchasedMyself

 

 

Hey, how you doin’? I totally just said that in Joey’s voice.

Joey-Tribiani-How-You-DoinI had the most ridiculous dream last night and I’ve been feeling off because of it. Is that normal? I’ll just blame anything unpleasant on the heat and call it a day. As promised, today I have the second part of the China Glaze Off Shore Collection to show you. I think we can all agree that the polishes I showed you yesterday certainly were not neon. What will be today’s verdict? Let’s take a look at my swatches first.

I can tell you that as far as colors go, I much prefer the other half of the collection. Because I’ve been super obsessed with green lately, my two favorites are Shore Enuff and Be More Pacific. The formula on all of these is nice–not nightmarish like previous summer collections. Sun Upon My Skin and Stoked To Be Soaked are the brightest polishes here but they aren’t true neons. I am happy to report that the formula on all of these polishes is nice. For my swatches, I applied two coats of polish and 1 coat of Seche Vite for shine. I’m a little meh on the colors here, but the two greens are definite must-haves in my opinion. So what are your thoughts on this half of the collection? If you haven’t seen the first part, click here. Anyway, I hope you’re doing well and staying cool. Thanks for the visit today, and I will talk to you soon!

    I agree that they aren’t true neons. I’m happy to hear that the formulas were good. I love Shore Enough and Stoked to be Soaked.

      Yeah, I am happy the formula wasn’t horrific because you know how this review would have turned out…

    I love be more pacific, sun upon my skin, and when in doubt surf it out! These are definitely going to be added to my wish list for when I can maybe one day afford new polish xD

      Those are great choices!

      hahahaha! I love Friends so much. I have the entire series so I should start watching them again. I just pictured Monica and Ross doing their dance from the Dick Clark Rockin’ Eve show. LOL

    Your photos are always beautiful, your swatches are pristine. What is your secret?

    1. 14 May, 2014 at 10:10 pm

      Thank you so much for the compliment! To be honest, I don’t know too much about photography but I had to try out a million types of lighting and had to use a lot of different settings on my camera. It was just a question of trial and error for me, and I hope that I can continue to improve.

    I’m so confused about why they called this collection neon. Yes, some of the colors are a little bright, but seriously? Shore Enuff is really pretty and may find its way home with me. Is Seas the Day Red? Coral? Coral-ly Red?

      I know, right?! I wouldn’t be so annoyed if they had just called these brights and not neons. Seas The Day is definitely a coral-red.

    I love these colors, they’re like pastel neons.. does than even make sense?

    tbh, stoked to be soaked looks like a great replacement for sun worshiper.. let me know your input on this matter?

    1. 18 May, 2014 at 1:01 am

      That totally makes sense and I agree. You know what? I immediately thought of Sun Worshiper but I can’t be 100% sure if it’s a dupe because I got rid of my bottle of SW. Just by looking at it, I think it’s pretty close and it has a better formula so I’d go with Stoked To Be Soaked.

        I just got a new bottle of SW, like 2 months ago..

        i kind of regreted it.. but sw is an amazing color.
        i cant wait to try this.

    I feel like a cuople of these are similar to the Gelato colors, they are all super pretty but I could probably do without them. I love them on your skin tone!

      Some can definitely be kind of dupe-y with the Gelato Mio polishes–you are right!

    Great swatches! Would you say Be More Pacific is an exact match for Grass Is Lime Greener? I can’t decide! Thanks! 🙂

    1. 18 May, 2014 at 1:19 am

      They are similar but I don’t think they are 100% dupes. Grass Is Lime Greener is brighter. However, the formula for Be More Pacific is a lot better so I’d probably go with this one.

    So, I am with you in that I am only kinda into the two greens and am kind of meh on the collection overall. At least the formulas were OK.
    And it is totally normal to feel off because of a dream…at least it is for me, haha. Last night I had a dream I was roommates with Miley Cyrus, and I was annoyed she was partying all the time, but I knew I was moping around super-depressed, but still knew that partying with her crew wasn’t necessarily the solution. Sooo…yeah! LOL.

      That dream didn’t throw me off all day…it’s just the most recent one that I remember, lol.

      1. 24 May, 2014 at 12:50 pm

        lol

    2. 24 May, 2014 at 12:52 pm

      OMG…that is a crazy dream. lol You know you like to party, dancing with Molly and doing whatever you want. haha
