'China Glaze: Pastel (ish) Haul'

If you saw my NOTD with MAC Mischievous Mint, you know I'm not keen on pastel nail polish, on myself that is. But I love it on other people so much I decided to give a few more a try! =)

left to right: China Glaze "Re-fresh Mint", "For Audrey", "Lemon Fizz"

China Glaze Re-fresh Mint... I actually quite like this color. It is the same basic color as MAC Mischievous Mint, but a few shades lighter and a touch more green.

China Glaze For Audrey... No doubt you own, or at least have heard of, this color. I was feeling left out so I popped it in my basket along with the other polishes. I was expecting something a bit lighter, but maybe being along-side the pastels is just making it appear darker...?

China Glaze Lemon Fizz... This is my favorite of the bunch =) Just a beautiful light yellow shade!

(Excuse my dry cuticles and the messy paint job!) 

I was quite pleased with the consistency and pigmentation of the polishes. For Audrey is opaque in 1 thick coat, but I chose to do 2 moderate coats. You could probably get away with 2 coats of Re-fresh Mint and Lemon Fizz, but I added another for good measure!

What are your favorite pastel nail polishes?!



  1. Nice haul! I have For Audrey too (: I think it's a bit overhyped though.

  2. They're all gorgeous! I have For Audrey and love it but now I want Refreshmint. I'm a little afraid of yellows. :)

  3. your nails are all perfect haha! i said the SAME thing when i bought For Audrey! Seemed darker than what i imagined... loveeee lemon fizz though! <3

  4. those are all super pretty! I am really liking lemon fizz...I have always steered clear of yellows but I think I need to buy that too see how I like it on me since its not so bright as others =)

  8. I'm thinking my next NOTD will be Lemon Fizz, then you guys can get a better look at it to see if you like it!!
