ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_LifeIsRosy

China Glaze Life Is Rosy: Blushed mauve creme (2 coats). This is a beautiful dusty shade. It’s a nice pop of colour without being too overwhelming. We think this is a wearable color for all ages! It’s fun and bright, but still has a muted quality.

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_Pink-iePromise

China Glaze Pink-ie Promise: Iridescent baby pink creme (3 coats). This is a gorgeous pale pink. Like the previous shade, this also has a subtle dusty quality. It has a very subtle shimmer too. So delicate!

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_Tart-yForTheParty

China Glaze Tart-y For The Party: Light lavender creme (2 coats). We love this beautiful lavender shade! It’s soft, pretty and squishy! This is the perfect pastel purple, a must-have in anyone’s collection.

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_FadeIntoHue

China Glaze Fade Into Hue: Periwinkle creme (3 coats). This is a very interesting dusty blue. We haven’t seen colors like this often! It’s a dusty blue periwinkle. This one appears like a shiny jelly polish but covers like a creme. We love it!

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_KeepCalmPaintOn

China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On: Sea foam green creme (3 coats). This is a beautiful pale mint green with soft silver shimmer. It’s packed with shimmer! Another unique shade, we definitely haven’t seen anything like this before.

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_DandyLyinAround

China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around: Shimmery vanilla icing (4 coats). This is a cute sheer white with lots of shimmer. We see hints of blue, green and pink. It’s very sparkly in person, you’ll have to take our word for it. It comes to life in the sunshine! This will be great for layering over other shades to add some pretty sparkles.

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_MimosasBeforeManis

China Glaze Mimosa’s Before Mani’s: Coral with a light wash of shimmer (3 coats). This is a pretty coral shade with subtle shimmer. A very fun, bright summery colour! We highly recommend this for pedicures. ūüôā

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_PassionForPetals

China Glaze Passion For Petals: Bright salmon pink creme (2 coats). This is a pretty interesting shade, also a little hard to describe. At first glance it looks like a red, but it’s more unique and interesting. It’s a dusty, pink-ish red. It also covered extremely well! Flawless formula on this one.

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_SnapMyDragon

China Glaze Snap My Dragon: Bright red with pink shimmer (2 coats). This is an amazing fiery red with hot pink shimmer. The pink shimmer is a lot more visible in person, it’s very beautiful and sexy.

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_FancyPants

China Glaze Fancy Pants: Indigo with pink and purple shimmer (2 coats). Now this is probably one of the coolest blue shades we’ve seen! It has pink shimmer! Isn’t that amazing? It’s a wearable blue as it’s muted but still has an interesting quality because of the shimmer.

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_SundayFunday

China Glaze Sunday Funday: Bright blue creme (2 coats). This is an amazing vivid turquoise blue. We’re instantly transported to the beach with a cocktail in our hand when we see this colour, in our heads anyway. ūüôā It screams summer holidays!

ChinaGlaze_AvantGarden_BuddingRomance

China Glaze Budding Romance: Moss green jelly (4 coats). Now, isn’t this an interesting shade? You don’t see an olive green often, but we do like this one a lot. It’s very fashionable and hip. You either love it or hate it!
