My Picks From the China Glaze Avant Garden Collection!

I want to show you guys my picks from the new spring collection from China Glaze, the Avant Garden Collection, which consists of 12 shades that range from soft pastels to bold bright shimmers.

I chose five colors from my local Sally Beauty Supply, which has a special sale going on for the month of April where you can buy any two polishes, and get one free!

This first color is Snap My Dragon, a pink leaning bright red with a gorgeous fuchsia shimmer.

I love this color, and it applied the easiest out of all the colors I bought! Photos show two coats.

Next we have Fancy Pants, a bluish purple with an intense violet shimmer.

I love how unique the shimmers are in this collection! This color is definitely gorgeous with my skin tone. Shown is two coats.

Next, we have Tart-y for the Party, a lavender cream.

I love how pretty this color is! It is pretty warm toned, much more so than any other purples I own! Shown is three thin coats.

Next we have the gorgeous Keep Calm, Paint On. This color is a pale mint green with a subtle shimmer.

Formula wasn't as easy on this one, but it evened out nicely in three coats.

And finally, we have Dandy Lyin' Around, a gorgeous white with an intense shimmer! My camera freaked out when I tried to photograph this, so the shimmer is not as visible in the photos as it is in real life.

This was the hardest to apply, and it was kind of patchy, but the color is just so pretty. Shown is three coats.

I love these spring colors! They are available in most beauty supply stores. Which ones will you be getting?


  1. Flawless swatches! I picked up a few but I really like that white :)

  2. Love them all! Keep Calm Paint On is one of my favorites and it looks so great on me. I like it so well I am considering getting a second back up bottle.

  3. I think I love Keep Calm Paint On. Great swatches and photos!
