Blonde Bombshell – Lorelei’s Tiara – Some Like It Haute – Marry A Millionaire – Material Girl – Love Marilyn
As promised, I bring you my swatches of the China Glaze Eye Candy collection! One of the two collections China Glaze is releasing this year for the holiday season. This collection consists of 6 glitters!
All of the swatches are 3 coats and none have topcoat. I would however, definitely suggest using a topcoat over these as heavy glitters can leave a rougher surface. All of them sit in a sheer, almost entirely clear base so they are buildable but do give completely coverage in three layers. I personally would layer them over other polishes, especially since one coat of glitter is easier to remove than three if you catch my drift.
Blonde Bombshell – This is a gold with fine gold glitter dust and small hexagonal gold glitters. This is honestly very pretty and perfect for the holidays or a party. This polish really makes your nails look like jewellery! They are definitly worthy of the name “bling”. Bling nails!
Lorelei’s Tiara – This is a silver with fine silver glitter dust and small hexagonal blue glitter. This is my least favourite, I don’t love what the blue glitter is doing for this polish. On its own it doesn’t speak to me, however, layer this over a turquoise and it comes to life! More on that in part II.
Some Like It Haute – This is a dark grey with dark fine glitter dust and hexagonal holographic glitter. This one is really nice and will speak a lot to the holo fans out there. It’s not a holographic polish but when you layer it over a black polish the holo glitters give a really nice effect. I wish the glitter was black instead of dark grey but it’s still really lovely.
Marry A Millionaire – This is a purple with fine purple glitter dust and green string glitter. This is my first bar/string/confetti glitter polish! The string glitter is very subtle but it really screams party! This is the best layering glitter polish out of the collection, it looks great over a lot of colours. Definitely the most interesting one out of the bunch.
Material Girl – This is a dusty rose with small rose hexagonal glitter and larger holographic pink glitter. I really love colours like this so I am in love with this polish. I’m not 100% convinced this polish fits with the rest of them but I personally like it.
Love Marilyn – This is a red with fine red glitter dust, small hexagonal red glitter particles and silver hexagonal glitter. It’s very pretty and perfect for the holidays.
Overall this is a wonderful collection! I think glitters are perfect for the holidays so I’m really glad they created this along side a more classic and traditional holiday collection. I usually don’t like sheers but with these glitters it definitely works because it makes them a lot more versatile. They look wonderful on their own but wait till you see what these look like over other colours! My overall favourite would be Marry A Millionaire on its own and Blonde Bombshell layered over other colours.
Part II will show you how these glitters look like layered! I have a few very exciting combination to share which I think you will love. If this doesn’t make you want these glitters then my next post definitely will.
