Gelish All About the Glow Collection Swatches – Summer 2013

The new All About the Glow collection from Gelish is finally here!  This has been promoted as their “brightest collection yet”, and I think it’s a pretty accurate claim.  The Rio Neon collection was bright, but in comparison these are even brighter!  I will have some comparisons to share with you very soon.

I am happy to tell you that the formula of these polishes is improved from some of the previous collections.  They aren’t thick and I didn’t experience any wrinkling or curing issues… and I actually tried to get them to wrinkle by applying some thicker layers.  I checked my swatches for fading after about 24 hours and didn’t notice any changes in the colors.  My only complaint about the formula is that the colors didn’t apply as evenly as I would have liked and required three coats each for even coverage.  With that said, I think they are all brilliant colors.  I’ve been wearing Radiance Is My Middle Name (teal) today, and LOVE it!

If you love these colors and would like a chance to win the whole collection, check out my giveaway!!

Make You Blink Pink reminds me of a Barbie!  It’s a super bright pink unlike any other by Gelish.

Brights Have More Fun is a darker hot pink.  It’s very similar to Shake It Til You Samba, but it’s slightly lighter & brighter.

I’m Brighter Than You is a vivid coral/peach color.  This one is similar to Sweet Morning Dew, but is also lighter and brighter.

Sometimes A Girl’s Gotta Glow is a brilliant lime green.  I will compare this to Amazon Flirt and You’re Such a Sweet-Tart.

Radiance is My Middle Name is a bright teal color.  As I mentioned, I’ve been wearing this all day and absolutely love it.  I will compare this with Garden Teal Party, though it’s visibly brighter.

    Good morning,
    I wanted to pass the word along that I saw your swatch photo of the You Glare I Glow on another website….it was posted on kiwispeaks dot com….It turns out that the bottom photo u posted of this color is stamped with your watermark and everything on this site as it is on here…just wanted to let u know

    I have been a silent viewer for several months, but now I must speak! Thank you SO much for doing such an amazing job swatching all of these. The colors Gelish shows on their website is never the actual color. Their pinterest page is even worse. I bought I’m Brighter Than You specifically because of this post for my vacation next week. THANK YOU.

      Thanks for commenting Lisa! I’m glad the swatches are helpful when selecting colors. I know I’m often surprised by what the colors actually look like.

    Blink Pink and You Glare, I Glow are my favorites. I’m Brighter Than You also looks great. I’m going to need another job for all the polishes on my wish list if you don’t stop swatching!

  7. Fania says:

    you do two coats for every swatch or three?

  8. Kristina says:

    My bottle of you glare I glow is a lot lighter, and more of a neon shade with some magenta to it. Do you think it could be similar to what people experienced with carnival hangover, where the color is inconsistent, or I just got an “off” bottle. I still love the color, but it is much lighter and less blue than the one you swatched.

  9. Jen says:

    I just bought you glare i glow in the gelish mini today and mine is neon magenta?!? definitely not a true purple :( Its still a really gorgeous color but I really wanted the darker purple. Comparing my colour to your other swatches I would say it looks way more like tahiti hottie

    Hi Andrea:)
    I’m in love with brights have more fun and did 2 gel manis with it. I was wondering if you’ve found a comparable color that’s not gel formula? I am trying to give my nails a break.
    Thank you in advance.

    • Andrea says:

      I don’t really keep up with RNP colors, but you might check to see if the Morgan Taylor line has a matching color since they make a lot of the same colors as Gelish.

    Hi Andrea
    How does I Glare you glow compare to Toyko a go go?
    Thank you

    I just recently got my hands on a you glear I glow and had checked your post on the difference between the old and new bottles of gelish. Mine doesn’t have a yellow lot number under the bottom liable. However everything else looks similar to the bottles you show on that post. Are they all supposed to have the yellow numbers, do you think I got a fake?

    Hi Andrea! I have been loving your site for the past couple weeks. I just started doing gel manicures, and have been purchasing items little by little. I LUV gelish but, I can not seem to find there polishes anywhere. I know that sally’s beauty supply sells the minis. I would like to know where I can purchase the full size bottles. Thank you!
