China Glaze Ride the Waves is a royal blue jelly polish from the Summer Neons 2012 collection. I really loved the swatches I saw of this collection and fully expected to be picking up Pink Plumeria, but my Sally Beauty didn’t have it. I also liked the orange, but after seeing it described as fake cheese (as in macaroni and cheese), that ruined it for me. Ride the Waves is the one I liked the best and happily, it was at my Sally store.
This is just two coats, so it is a bit sheer. I adore this polish and it ranks up there as one of my favorite blues, possibly one of my favorite polishes in general. I can see why it is called Ride the Waves, since it reminds me of water (the Great Lakes, of course!).
The jelly finish is glossy and shiny; simply gorgeous! I usually don’t go for blue so easily, but I fell hard for this one!
