China Glaze That’s Shore Bright from the Sunsational Collection was exactly the summery shade I needed to sport to make my nails smile.
Even though my cuticles were on the drier side at the time I wore this, I mainly paid attention to the cute colour – a fun lilac!
I love how this adorable shade has a creamy look to it, and it reminds me of Easter.
Pastel purples are soft and feminine without being too traditional. I think that’s why I like most.

China Glaze That’s Shore Bright Review
That’s Shore Bright by China Glaze is a bright purple, but it’s definitely not a retina-burning neon. I’d describe it more as a bright pastel. Instead of being anaemic, it has a little ‘bite’ to it, just so you know it’s alive and kicking.
While it looks soft and creamy on the nail, there’s something about it that really adds definition to your manicure. This shade is fun and perfect for the summer. And, maybe it’s just me, but I find lilacs like this to be elegant, even if it’s brighter than a traditional pastel.
China Glaze That’s Shore Bright has a creamy finish that I love. And, unlike China Glaze Neon & On & On from the same Sunsational Collection, this baby applied wonderfully smooth and not nearly as streaky.
Since it has a creme finish, it’s also a breeze to remove. You won’t need to scrub your fingers hard. It comes off easily.
Application & Formula
That’s Shore Bright by China Glaze applied easily, and I recommend you try it, especially if you’re new to nail polish and don’t want to struggle with application.
When you’re starting out and developing your polishing technique, it’s always nice to work with a polish that doesn’t act like Sin Cara and force you to wrestle. That’s Shore Bright is one of the polishes you’ll appreciate. But, it’s important to remember that even if your manicure doesn’t turn out picture-perfect, as long as it makes you happy, that’s what counts.
The formula of this China Glaze Sunsational nail polish gave me great opacity with just 2 medium coats.
Final Verdict: 8.5/10
That’s Shore Bright by China Glaze has made it onto my list of pastel-purple nail polishes that I will wear again. I love how while it has an Easter-y feel, it’s not so pastel that it looks like it’ll faint. It has enough colour saturation that makes it more flattering. (Sometimes I find the really light and milky shades to accentuate the natural redness in my hands.)
Are you a fan of bright pastel purples? What shade of purple flatters you the most? Have you tried any of the China Glaze Sunsational nail polishes yet?
