I’m Bringing Jelly Beans to My China Glaze Island Escape

Published in: Nails, Product Reviews

With a name like Island Escape, China Glaze’s new nail polish collection could be about bright, tropical colors, but the sugar fiend in me can’t help but see jelly beans in these bottles.


The six-piece summer collection (about $5 per bottle) features a rainbow of tropical candy colors — four shimmers (108 Degrees, Cha Cha Cha, Senorita Bonita and Blue Iguana), which require two coats to reach full opacity, and two creams (Papaya Punch and Electric Pineapple), which take three.

If you were wondering, yes, I did eat these jelly beans :), starting with the popcorn ones first (they’re my fave!).

I’ve had excellent luck with China Glaze polishes over the years; they’re some of the sturdiest and most chip-resistant polishes I’ve tried. They get the texture and consistency just right — it’s not too thick nor thin — and they don’t skimp on the pigment.

  7. ahh I love how you did this photoshoot with jellybeans! Normally, I would gravitate towards Cha Cha Cha, but I’m pretty sure I already have 2 exact dupes for it. I’m eyeing Blue Iguana right now! I love bright/light shimmery blues πŸ™‚

  8. Ahhh, so pretty! I love your pictures with the jelly beans! I want some Jelly Bellys now! I like the pear, popcorn, grapefruit, and root beer flavors. Not all in one bite though!

  11. Katie says:

    I loooove these colors! I think your swatches in the last pic may be mixed up…I’m assuming Blue Iguana is the blue polish, not the purple πŸ˜› I’ll definitely be getting at least a few of these.

    I CAN’T CHOOSE! No, seriously, they’re all so pretty! I finally got around to buying my faves from the Poolside collection, but I might need to pick up these as well πŸ™‚

  15. Sarah says:

    I like them all but the purple and blue ones are my favorite.

    Karen – while debating on which to vote for, I was confused. In the voting you have Blue Iguana as the blue, but in the swatches of bottles and fingers you have Blue Iguana as the purple. But I’m torn between Senorita Bonita and Blue Iguana anyway so it doesn’t change much for me.

    Now I want jelly beans.

  16. KK says:

    Dude! I love them all, they look yummy! Please post a pic of your rainbow hand!! lol πŸ™‚

  17. Britany B. says:

    OMG, how do you get your nails painted so perfectly like that?! I try and fail every time.

  18. Kerry says:

    I love the popcorn ones, too! I save them for last. Damn you, Karen – time for a late-night pantry raid to see if I have any Jelly Bellys left over. πŸ˜›

  20. Kim says:

    This is definitely a fun, happy collection of colors! I can picture myself lining up the bottles (ROYGBV order, of course) and just looking at them for a smile. Luckily, I can just look at your pic above instead. πŸ™‚

  21. courtney says:

    SOO pretty! And popcorn jelly beans are yucky!

  22. Stef Smith says:

    Electric Pineapple, finally an opaque neon lime! I love these colors so much, I’m going to head on over to Sally Beauty Supply tomorrow to see if they’re there! I’m not a jellybean fan at all, I think they are beautiful to look at, but I don’t eat them. My husband likes the popcorn flavor.

    • Tekoa says:

      Same, jelly beans are beautiful to look at but I don’t like the taste. Never had the popcorn flavor….must investigate.

  23. Tekoa says:

    I have all of them but Electric Pineapple. So impressed was I by the vibrant colours that I bought a new pair of flip flops. I shouldn’t have done that. The next day we were dumped on by snow that has yet to melt. What can I say, its Alberta. My husband said I caused it to snow by aquiring sandals. πŸ™‚

  24. Chris25 says:

    Oh no, now I want jelly beans! LOL. I am going to make a trip to Queens the second week of April, Would you believe there’s only ONE Sally’s in all of NYC? I have to travel 45 minutes just to buy China Glaze poilshes.

  25. Emma says:

    I can’t answer your poll, I love Cha-cha and Senorita Bonita – you need to change it so that I can choose two πŸ™‚ Love that these are strong, funky colours!

  26. Perry says:

    Mmm, jelly beans. That Electric Pineapple shade is a dead ringer for the Chanel Mimosa shade. Might have to pick that up…

  27. SaBaH says:

    Senorita Bonita and Blue Iguana is tempting me.
    It’s not related to the topic but i think it’s time for China glaze to come up with some new packaging. These bottles make me feel drowsy!

  28. Jessica says:

    The colors are gorgeous and really fun, but has anyone else found China Glaze to chip easily?


  29. Spencer says:

    Loving the vivid colours and the Jelly Beans inspiration for them! Its hot!
