China Glaze Surfin' For Boys

China Glaze Surfin’ For Boys is a neon red-based coral  with pink shimmer. If you haven’t seen this collection in person yet, have no fear: these are true neons and extremely, extremely bright. In fact, Surfin’ For Boys is so bright that it freaked my camera out. Although it looks bright in these pictures, it is even more intense in real life.




The formula was good and didn’t leave me with any complaints. Like most neons, Surfin’ For Boys dried to a semi-matte finish, so you’ll need to use topcoat if you want to get full color intensity and bring the shimmer out. I really like that China Glaze did shimmers for this new neon collection. They’ve done several neon sets before but none quite like these. The shimmer really adds some extra fun to the color and makes it even more eye-catching! Whether you sport it on your nails or your toes, Surfin’ For Boys is a perfect summer color.

Have you picked up any of the CG neons yet? Which ones are on your must list? I got this and I’m With The Lifeguard.

  6. Really pretty finish on this one! I agree, the shimmer to this collection really sets it apart, especially when we're getting so many neons this summer (not that I'm complaining--I love neons!). I'm never really sure I pull off oranges very well, but this colour looks fantastic on you. I have fingers crossed that my store still has Flirty Tankini. ;)

    1. Thank you! The shimmer is really gorgeous in this one, especially in natural light. Flirty Tankini looks really cute too! I'm limiting myself on going back for more from this collection though.
