China Glaze - Lite Brites Collection (swatches and review) + Giveaway

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have the China Glaze Summer 2016 Lite Brites Collection to share with you! This may be one of my favorite China Glaze summer collections yet! Let's take a peek!

Hot Flash is a bright neon red crelly with a slight pink undertone. This had a great formula and was almost opaque for me in one coat; however depending on your application you may need a second. I also had no staining with this at all. 

Lip Smackin Good is a pretty medium bubblegum pink creme with a dark pink shimmer. Super hard for my camera to pick up, but it's definitely there in real life! This is two coats plus topcoat.

Lime After Lime is a bright neon green creme! For this sort of color, it had a fantastic formula, needing just two coats!

I Got a Blue Attitude is a beautiful, deep blurple with blue shimmer. This was another that, depending on your application, you may get away with one coat. Here I did one coats on some nails and two on the others. Can you see a difference? 

Whip It Good is sort of a pastel, bordering neon, yellow creme. For a yellow, this had a perfect formula that was opaque in two coats!

I'll Pink to That is your standard fuchsia/neon pink creme. Nothing too spectacular, but the formula was really awesome! Here is just one coat!

None of Your Risky Business is a neon, yellow toned orange creme. This one was a little streaky for me on two coats, so I added a third.

Papa Don't Peach is a gorgeous bright/.orange coral with copper/gold microglitters and shimmer. Really great combo! This dries textured and actually looks pretty good that way, though it is not marketed as being a textured polish. Here I did three thin coats, plus two coats of topcoat. This also  removes a bit like a microglitter.

Let's Jam is a really pretty lilac creme with beautiful blue shimmer throughout! Here I did two coats, but you could almost get away with just one!

What I Like About Blue is a beautiful Tiffany blue with silver shimmer. Another wonderful formula that was opaque in one coat for me! 

Bite Me is a gorgeous, eye searing neon pinky coral with a beautiful golden shimmer! Here I did two coats plus topcoat. The shimmer is definitely noticeable on the nail, but not quite as apparent as it shows in the bottle.

We Got the Beet is an amazing purple crelly filled with coppery micro glitters. This also dries textured like Papa Don't Peach, but here I did two coats plus topcoat. 

There were a few little snafus with my package and I ended up with duplicates for some of the polishes; so China Glaze's lovely PR Department agreed to let me keep all the duplicates and have a giveaway! Oh Yeah! Oh Yeah!  (Giveway is for US only, sorry my International girls!)

One winner will receive all six polishes as shown below!
