(L->R) OPI Green on the Runway, Orly Ablaze, China Glaze Be More Pacific

Helloooo! Happy Hump DAYYYYY! Today I have 3 polishes sent to me by The Beauty Clutch. Recently I had a giveaway with The Beauty Clutch where 3 lovely ladies won polishes of their choice. I was able to select 3 to review as well! These are polishes from summer collections that are available through The Beauty Clutch website. Check 'em out after the jump :]

OPI Green on the Runway (The Beauty Clutch $7.50) is from the Coca Cola Collection and was inspired by Sprite. It is a strong duochrome polish that flashes bright green to reddish-brown. This was the only one from the collection I wanted and I'm happy to have it! Although the reddish-brown has me confused on how it relates to Sprite lmao, I love the color shift! This is quite unique for an OPI, which I usually pass up :P

I did 2 coats of Green on the Runway plus top coat. Application gave me no issues, it was easy to work with and wasn't streaky. I did add top coat because it did show my ridges without it haha. No issues with dry time, it was quick and painless!

Orly Ablaze (The Beauty Clutch $6.50) is from the Baked Collection. I KNEW I had to have this color when Lacey of My Boyfriend Hates Makeup swatched this on IG. A bright, neon, orange coral with beautiful gold glassflecks? YUP - count me in. This is such a fun neon polish. Different from all the neon cremes we saw this summer. I wouldn't pass this one up :]

I did 2 coats of Orly Ablaze. I was expecting 3 coats, so 2 coats was a welcomed surprise! It was a little runny and it kept pooling around my cuticles. The dry time was okay, but wasn't the fastest. No big issue, really.

China Glaze Be More Pacific (The Beauty Clutch $5.00) is from the Off Shore Collection. Be More Pacific is a neon, pastel lime green creme polish. These light green neons have been my obsession this summer. I think it's a very unique color! I compared it to Lime Crime Pastelchio, which isn't a dupe and is a bit more on the yellow side. I prefer the more green, less expensive China Glaze version :P

I did 3 coats of Be More Pacific. Application gave me no issues and was easy to work with. I would wait between coats to ensure a good dry time - or pull a Lacey and top coat it with Seche Vite LOL. ;]
