China Glaze City Flourish Collection: My Picks & Swatches

This winter has been miserable.  I live in South Carolina and while it does get cold here, I haven't ever seen it THIS cold.  We've had 2 ice storms in the past month.  I'm so OVER it.  When I first saw a promo pic of the China Glaze City Flourish collection for Spring 2014, I was so excited for some bright  springy colors.  I don't own a lot of pinks or spring-like colors, so I was glad to see some really pretty pinks.

Before this collection was even released in stores, I knew I HAD to have Peonies & Park Ave.  It's a super bright pink that almost exactly matches the Peonies I used in my bridal bouquet almost a year ago.  During my trip to Ulta last weekend, I was happy to see this collection had been released!  I picked up Peonies & Park Ave, along with Don't Honk Your Thorn.  Here are my swatches and review.

Peonies & Park Ave.

Peonies & Park Ave. is a super bright neon pink.  I wasn't expecting this color to be this bright based off of the promo pic, but I actually really love it.  It dries matte, as most neons do.  It has a pretty smooth application.  Swatch is 2 coats plus top coat.

Don't Honk Your Thorn

Don't Honk Your Thorn is a nude creme-like polish with a very subtle shimmer.  The shimmer gives it a glowy-ness that makes it very unique.  I have several nudes and my husband asked me how this polish is any different from any of those (isn't he so cute :P) I told him it has a shimmer unlike my other nudes, and I actually like this one better than the ones I own!  The application was fairly smooth, it easily leveled out with 2 coats and a top coat.  I apologize for the peelies and dry cuticles.  Winter has been cruel to my hands.

Oh yeah, how could I forget to show you how Peonies & Park Ave matched my wedding flowers!

Ignore my goofy face.  And I think that picture has a filter on it from IG.  But they are very very close in color! Seriously!

There are a few other polishes from this collection that I am interested in, but I'm putting my self on a no-buy for now.  Maybe I'll order a few more next month :)  What do you think of this collection?  What polishes are you loving?

Thanks for stopping by!
