Hi lacqured lovelies,
Today I have the latest China Glaze collection that's scheduled for this summer. This collection consists of 12 bright 80's inspired polishes. You guys know I'm a sucker for cutesy names and this collection doesn't disappoint. Most of the polishes were named after 80's songs.
Papa Don't Peach, described as "a Summer Splendor of neon orange coral" was obviously named after Madonna's hit Papa Don't Preach.
Whip It Good, "a glistering Summer bright yellow Nail tone" was named after a super popular song by Devo of the same name.
Lime After Lime, "a Summer splendor atomic light green" was named after Cyndi Laupers 1983 hit Time After Time. I'm so loving this.
My fave, I think, is We Got The Beet, "a Summer splendor strong vibrant shining awe purple" This name came from the Go Go's song We Got The Beat.
Let's Jam, I think, came from a song by the same name, by MC Fostee. I'm not so sure about that, I had to look it up. But it's the only song during that period that popped up with that name. Let's Jam is described as "a Summer splendor Light pop bubble purple".
I Got A Blue Attitude came from Patty LaBelles 1984 song I Got A New Attitude.
Last for music, there's What I Like About Blue, which is probably from the 1980 song What I Like About You by the Romantics. This one is described as " a Summer splendor Turquoise sky blue".
Ok, we covered the music, let's move on to movies. I think there was only one. None Of Your Risky Business came from the 1983 hit movie Risky Business starring the oh so famous Tom Cruise. Remember the dance scene where Cruise lip sings to Old Time Rock And Roll and dances around in his undies? A memorable scene to say the least. None Of Your Risky Business is described as "a Summer splendor satsuma dry orange tone".
Names for the other colors didn't seem to recognizably relate to the 80's, but were nice just the same.
Hot Flash (Maybe from Flash Dance?), is "a Summer Splendor of Luminous classic red".
Bite Me is "a Summer Splendor of tint of Orange and light Pink".
I'll Pink To That is described as "a Summer Splendor of classic barbie summer pink" Did they say Barbie? Gotta love all things Barbie.
Last, Lip Smackin' Good is "a Summer Splendor of faded pop Pink".
So, the entire collection is rounded out with 3 pinks, 3 purples, a red, a peach, orange, yellow, green and blue. They've covered the entire rainbow. That's so 80's.
Wait, the Lite Brites collection doesn't stop there. In true China Glaze fashion, there are a number of sets and minis in the Lite Brites line up.
The Love Shack Duo, named after the B-52's song of the same name has Lip Smackin' Good and Hot Flash.
The Silver Stripe Flash Dance Trio (ah, there's Flash Dance, I knew that movie had to be in there somewhere) contains None of your risky Business, I Got A Blue Attitude, and a silver chrome Nail art.
Another trio, White Stripe Material Girl Trio, contains I’ll Pink To That & What I Like about Blue with a White Stripe Nail art. Completely Madonna.
There's also a mini collection called Whip It Good 6 Piece Mini set. This set contains Whip It Good, Papa Don't Peach, Ill Pink To That, We Got The Beat, We Got The Beat, What I Like About Blue, and I Got A Blue Attitude.
Lastly, there is the Lite Brites Kit, which is another 6 piece set containing: Lip Smackin good, Bite Me, Ill pink to that, We got the beat, Let's Jam, and what I Like about Blue.
I might not rush out and buy these because I'm sure I have dupes of most of them, but I am intrigued by the whole 80's theme thing they have going on there. Another winner for China Glaze, I think.
Will you pick up one or more of these? Which ones?
Ciao for now!
