SWATCHES – China Glaze Avant Garden Part 1

Today I have swatches of half of the new China Glaze Avant Garden collection! In total there are 12 colors (which would make for a lengthy post) so I’m splitting them up. These are from the “Blooming Brights” portion of the collection – 6 bright colors for Spring!

Mimosa’s Before Mani’s is a pinky coral with a hint of shimmer. Perfect in 2 coats!

Sunday Funday is a gorgeous bright blue. One of my favorites from this collection! I must say…the formula on all these polishes is great. I could have gotten away with using 1 coat but did 2 just in case 🙂

This swatch is Snap My Dragon! It’s a red (with a hint of hot pink) with subtle shimmer.

Budding Romance…hmm. Not really sure how I feel about this one! It’s definitely different and probably not a polish I would use that often. This color is more something that I would use for nail art versus plain polishing.

Fancy Pants (oh China Glaze how I love the names for some of these!) is a blurple (blue/purple) with pink shimmer. It’s difficult to see the shimmer in the photo, but it’s really subtle. So pretty!

Passion for Petals is another pink/red shade. This one is similar to Snap My Dragon but this one is a creme with no shimmer.

Stay tuned for the rest of the Avant Garden collection (the pastel shades!) What do you think of them so far?

  • These swatches are great I can wait to get my hands on some of these. I know you said you weren’t crazy about the green one, but I really love that color, I just wanted to know, is there shimmer in the green one or is it a creme. How many coats did it take to build it up.

    Thanks for the info I really appreciate it!


    • Thank you! The green is definitely different…not my cup of tea but it is a nice color! There’s no shimmer in that one and it was pretty sheer! It took me 3 coats 🙂
