China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle Swatches & Review

China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle Swatches & ReviewI have a lot of aqua nail polishes, so really, I bought China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle from the Sunsational Collection just for the name.

It makes me think of a smug nail polish with its nose turned up thinking that it’s all that and a bag of chips. And I picture it wearing a J Crew sweater tied around its neck.

Hehe, snobbery aside, Too Yacht to Handle is a wonderfully bright lacquer that really spells summer to me. I can see how this would flatter a lot of different skin tones.

Key Notes

China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle Review

Colour

Too Yacht to Handle by China Glaze is an aqua with nuances of blue and green that complements many skin tones from fair to rich.

Whenever I wear a polish like this, I always dig the contrast it provides. Plus it’s nice and bright, so on a sunny day, your nails really come to life.

I’m not sure if I would categorize this as a neon, though. Sure, it’s bright, but I don’t feel like I need to pull out a pair of Ray Bans and a too-cool-for-school attitude. ;)

Finish

Too Yacht to Handle by China Glaze has a creme finish, which is simple, but very effective. A colour as lively as this one doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles to really stand out. The colour does all the talking!

Application & Formula

After trying China Glaze Neon & On & On from the same collection, I was concerned that China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle would also have a hard-to-work-with formula that was streaky.

However, I was pretty pleased to discover that Too Yacht to Handle went on smoothly and was so creamy. I don’t have anything but praise for this great formula. And you should only need 2 medium coats to completely cover the nail line.

Pros

  • Bright blue/green aqua
  • Great formula
  • Flatters many different skin tones
Cons

  • Not the most original colour (there are lots of aquas on the market)

Final Verdict: 9/10

Too Yacht to Handle by China Glaze is a fun polish to wear. Even if it’s not the most original colour, it’s one of those shades that always seems flattering. And it puts me in a good mood because it’s bright and cheerful.

Have you tried any of the Sunsational Collection shades? What’s your favourite aqua polish? Do you think this polish is ‘too yacht to handle’? Hehe!

      Hey Lizzy!

      Haha, I like your polish justification! ;) And, although I don’t have Turned Up Turquoise, I have the Misa polish that’s supposed to be similar, and it’s amazing!

    hehe I love that you imagine your polishes with personality – I do too! My husband thinks I’m crazy (well he may be on to something there…;) )

    I am getting this color as soon as I possibly can. Somehow, this collection completely slipped under my radar — I can’t wait to go to the nail polish store aaahhhhhhh!

      Hey Sarah!

      Funny how some polishes manage to be discrete and others hit us over the head, right? ;) I’ve almost tried all of the cremes, and I’m enjoying the bright colours for spring!

      Hey Miss Intensity Nails!

      That’s interesting. I have Aquadelic somewhere. Maybe I’ll need to snap a photo of them together for a quick comparison. From what I remember, they’re pretty close, but I’d have to see them side-by-side to be sure. But, I think you could have one or the other.

      Same – neons are my weakness, but all year long! ;)

        Would be awesome if you could do a comparison of the two, I would really like to know! My guess is that the two will be identical in colour but Too Yacht To Handle has neon magic sprinkled in ;) Neons truly shine in the sun, where I live it is gloomy for most of the year (except summer)… so vampy shades it is for fall/winter/spring~

          I’ll see what I can do. Need to buy new nail wheels – I ran out! After that, I’ll make a mental note to do this comparison for you.
