Mini Review: China Glaze Island Escape

I bought three colours from China Glazes Summer collection - Island Escape. There's a total of 6 colours in the collection and they are all brilliantly bright and colourful, perfect for summer. 

I found that the formulation of all of the 3 that I have was quite thin/watery. I don't remember this issue with any other China Glazes that I've tried. Like this was literally running off my nail as I tried to spread it around! (And I was removing excess polish on the opening of the bottle.) When it first happened I just thought this is going to be a disaster but despite this, the varnish dries really quick and opaque. All the pictures are just two coats. The varnish was really shiny on it's own and was easy to remove despite a slight grittiness due to shimmer. 
I love all the colours and am very tempted to get the other 3! 

Senorita Bonita - A purple shimmer

Paypaya Punch - A bright orange but not quite neon

108 Degrees - A gorgeous pink shimmer with slight blue reflects.
