I 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.

China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle Review
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. 😉
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.
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!
