China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitters

Sometimes there is a collection you know you *need*. This hasn't happened to me in a looooong time, but China Glaze caught my attention when they showed promo shots of the Prismatic glitters.

These have been released but I couldn't find an online retailer who sells them and had to resort to eBay. At the time, there were no swatches online so I bought a little 'blind'. After these 3, I think I'm ging back to search for the rest.

First up, Optical Illusion. Seafoam Green base.


Mmmmmm, scrumptious bottle shot.  Looks just like Fairy Dust!


Two coats provided great coverage. These glitters are so densely packed. The above photo is taken in natural shaded light.


And taken in full sunlight. Look at that bling sparkle.


My favourite of the 3: Ray-Diant. A Yellow/Green duochrome base. Again, 2 coats and above photo was taken in shaded natural light.


And in full sunlight.


Liquid Crystal, a Blue/Lilac duochrome base. 2 coats.


And in full sunlight.  My swatches are rocky looking as no top coat was used.

They also look FAB over black. And you can see some great swatches of the whole collection here on this fab blog.

  1. Ooh! Very pretty and sparkly! Too gritty looking for my taste, but you rock them Carli :)

  3. I love how dense they are!! The glitter polishes I have bought have all needed a trillion coats and still don't look as amazing as that! I will definitely need to invest in these! xx

    1. 2 coats is all you need. If layering over a base color then u would only need 1!

    1. There is almost zero information on it and just as hard to purchase....it's baffling!

    1. YOu need to soak some remover onto cotton and leave on the nail for a couple of minutes, otherwise you'll be scrubbing for an hour.

  11. How did you find the removal of these? With me, it sort of fell off in 1 cap, like I had a nail sticker on!?

    1. Sometimes that happens to me too, if Im wearing a lot of layers. It's handy, saves all that polish remover!
