Alli’s Favs: China Glaze Towel Boy Toy

In honor of Katie’s semi rant like tweet regarding neons I thought I’d put on one of my favorite neons! Towel Boy Toy is from China Glaze’s Summer 2010 Poolside collection. The first time I did a post on this polish I was in Malibu on vacation so my swatch really didn’t do it justice. I’ve always wanted to reswatch this polish. Yes it’s 2 years later, but better late than never, right?

Towel Boy Toy is a very bright blue with subtle shimmer. It is a neon but it’s not as bright as most neons. The formula is a bit thin, so three coats are definitely required to get an opaque color. Because this polish is a neon a shiny top coat is definitely required! I used Rush 60 Second high shine top coat.

Why China Glaze Towel Boy Toy is a favorite: The color! It’s just pretty and a great manicure for the hot summer months.

  1. I love this – but so many coats it takes… I never ran into a sheer neon before this one! Actually I think it’s just this side of neon. Looking forward to the 2012 CG Neon collection big time!
