As the weather starts warming up, many of us are starting to ditch the dark, dull colors that we become so accustomed to during the winter season. If updating your nail polish collection is one of your beauty priorities, be sure to take a look at the latest China Glaze nail polish collection called Island Escape, as it can bring the party to your fingernails in matter of minutes.

Summer is without a doubt most people's favorite season. The hot, sunny days, the weekends spent at the beach-side or the exotic holidays are all events that stay deeply ingrained in our memory, making us to look forward to summer days each time. These pleasurable associations with summer are exactly the core concept behind the latest China Glaze nail polish collection.

After presenting the uber popular Crackle Nail Polish collection which highlights one of the hottest nail polish trends of this season and then continuing with a fashionable collection with nautical influences called suggestively Anchors Away, the brand is planning on releasing another spectacular nail polish collection which has a slightly more exotic vibe, yet the same stunningly beautiful shades we have become used to.

The exotic theme is well reflected by the eye-popping hues which can undoubtedly provide a striking, but pleasant contrast on subtly tanned skin. For maximum glamor, most shades are either shimmery or creme-based. Selecting a simple monochrome manicure style will be far from boring, thanks to the fabulous effects created. The six new shades contained in the collection are cleverly named using various exotic elements that make the party theme even more evident. Here are the dazzling colors you'll be able to choose from:

Papaya Punch - a fabulous crème based intense orange color

108 Degrees - a rad berry pink glittery shade

Senorita Bonita - a fashionable purple shade with subtle pink glitter

Blue Iguana - a wicked sparkly blue hue

Cha Cha Cha - a striking shimmery green shade

Electric Pineapple - a superb crème based lime green.

A detail worth mentioning is that all the nail polishes from this summer-inspired collection are DBP, toluene and added formaldehyde free, a thing that truly highlights the eco-friendly approach that the brand has adopted for its products. If the superb colors have convinced you to update your existing nail polish collection, you should know that you will be able to purchase these enchanting hues in a 6 piece box collection, 6 piece counter display, 12 piece counter display or a 36 piece rack, depending on your preferences. The collection is said to be released in April, although there are also speculations which suggest the fact that we will only be able to purchase the collection starting with May.
