Ride the Waves is the other blue from the China Glaze Summer Neons collection for Summer 2012.
This is a deep/royal blue jelly polish. The formula is pretty thin and tends to run. You'll need to use thin coats. Dry time was slow and the finish is a bit dull once it is dry. Not quite matte, but not really shiny. I used Finger Paints base coat, 2 coats of Ride the Waves, and Sally Hansen Insta Dri top coat on my middle and index fingers. I also used 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri Whirlwind White on my ring and index fingers.

As you can see, Ride the Waves is definitely brighter over white, but again is not a neon polish. I think I prefer it on its own however. I like the nice squishy feel of jellies. I think the best use of this polish would be for a jelly sandwich.
