China Glaze Shower Together

I love anything 'green', (i.e., ecofriendly), and so was happy about the idea of China Glaze's Ecollection (which came out in '05, can be found @ e-tailers). It consists of some very pretty colors; a green, a blue, 2 browns, a yellow, and a grey. I've got the blue, Shower Together.
Shower Together has the potential to be absolutely awesome. On the nail, however, it was a little disappointing. Dare I call a bright blue boring? But somehow it is. Maybe a better way to describe it is flat. A beautiful bright sky blue should pop and wow the eye. I'm not saying that this is a bad color, it just isn't what I thought it would be.
Application was pretty good, not gloppy. A little runny, but if I had to choose between having a gloppy or a runny polish I would definately choose runny. Much easier to handle. I needed 3 coats in order to even out streakiness.
The picture above doesn't really show the true nature of ST ... it's a shade or 2 darker and has a green tinge to it. This picture is a closer match, but not such a great picture.
Did y'all get any Ecollection colors? What did you think of them?


  1. Ah! I got Hybrid from ecollection, and I love it. It's this fantastic beige shimmer that shows up brown indoors and light beige in the light. Completely unique and such a surprise!

  2. Your so right, it is a little flat. The collection of all blue polishes makes up for it. It is a pretty color.

  3. kinchix3 - I saw Hybrid, it looks really cool. The other brown looks really awesome too, I'll have to try them.
    Lucy - I LOVE the Bahama Blues collection ... I only have Caribbean Blue right now, but I want about 3 more. :) Blues are so fun!
