China Glaze Papaya Punch

Sometimes when I see a nail polish that looks all wrong for me I just can’t help but pick it up. This is exactly what happened with Papaya Punch. I saw the China Glaze Island Escape display at Beauty Brands and was oddly not attracted to any of the polishes except for Papaya Punch. I figured what the hell and decided to give it a shot. At the very least, it’s completely unique when it comes to my collection!

Papaya Punch reminds me of a traffic cone. It’s a very bright yellow leaning orange creme. Surprisingly, I ended up liking this polish. It’s not the most flattering polish for me, but with a little bit of a tan it doesn’t look too bad either.

The color of this polish is similar to SinfulColors Cloud 9 which I didn’t really like. Papaya Punch is a bit brighter which I think makes a huge difference.


  1. I didn’t think I’d like this one, but I LOVED it. It really got me into orange polishes, which is a color I tend to not gravitate towards. There is something about this bright orange that just draws me in!
