China Glaze Sun Worshiper is a flamboyant neon orange that practically assaults your retinas because it’s so bright!
The orange cheese powder in a box of Kraft Dinner comes pretty close to the colour of this nail polish.
Slick it on, and you could stop traffic! It’s more yellow than the traffic cones, but it’s just as arresting!
China Glaze really knew what they were doing because their Poolside Collection was brilliant, in my opinion. I’ve worn 5 of the 6 colours, and fell in love with nearly all of them. (I didn’t care for the yellow because it’s Streak City!)

China Glaze Sun Worshiper Review
As you can see from my photographs, Sun Worshiper by China Glaze is a bold, eye-searing neon orange that demands your attention.
I’m the type of person who talks with my hands a lot, so whenever I wear this nail polish, people usually stare at my nails more than usual when I’m talking with them. It’s actually really funny when people see the neon polish for the first time. Some people stop mid-sentence and look discombobulated until they realize it’s the polish that’s flashing so brightly.
If you’re looking for a fun summery polish that breaks away from the usual pink neons, I highly recommend Sun Worshiper. It’s fresh, different, and 100% fun!
Sun Worshiper by China Glaze is a neon polish, so it dries very matte and pretty streaky. When wearing it, you must wear a top coat. Not only will that add the much-needed shine, but it’ll also make the finish look way less streaky.
Application & Formula
The great thing about Sun Worshiper (and neon nail polish in general) is that it dries super fast. Sure, you have to use 3 coats for better coverage (and it still may be a tad streaky and show some visible nail line), but instead of waiting between coats, you can literally slap on the next coat immediately afterwards! By the time you finish painting the last finger on your second hand, the first nail on your first hand is dry.
Tip for Avoiding Streakiness & Visible Nail Line
Some people suggest using a white polish as a base under neons to increase opacity and reduce visible nail line or streakiness.
I’m a neon purist (hehe!), so I’ve never used this little trick. If you try it, please tell me how well it works. (I’ve heard that using the white underneath has a downside – it makes the neon not quite as bright. Is this true?)
How Does It Compare to China Glaze Papaya Punch?
While both are bright, Sun Worshiper is a true neon. This difference is enough for me to justify owning both. But, if you’re not a nailphile and just want one bright orange, I suggest purchasing Sun Worshiper.

Final Verdict: 9.5/10
While I don’t usually wear orange nail polish, China Glaze Sun Worshiper is a colour I find myself turning to time and time again. It adds a crazy pop of colour and makes you happy just looking at it.
Do you wear orange nail polish? Have you tried layering white underneath a neon nail polish?
