China Glaze Eye Candy 3D Glitters Collection Swatches + Review

I know these are old for other people, but they're new to me! I just did a few skittles to see how they covered and looked on my nails. I was impressed. But I did find some dupes. Sigh. I think I have like four polishes that all look the same...

I ordered these from and they were out on one polish (Love Marilyn, sad) but I grabbed the other five. I'm still on the hunt for Love Marilyn...

China Glaze Blonde Bombshell
China Glaze Blonde Bombshell is a beautiful yellow gold fine glitter with larger hexagonal glitter that covers nicely. Nice version of gold glitter in the new 3D version, but otherwise, simple and beautiful.

China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara
China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara is a mixture of small silver glitter with larger blue hexagonal glitter. This seems to be a popular combination. China Glaze always has good quality polishes, but this combination is also found in Sally Hansen GEM crush Showgirl Chic.

This is what I think of when I hear the name Lorelei ...

Anybody? Anybody? C'mon! OK, moving on ...

China Glaze Marry A Millionaire
China Glaze Marry A Millionaire is a gorgeous glitter that I'm having a hard time describing. At different angles it seems to have different components, but I'm having a hard time seeing them individually when I look at it. To me (which is different from other descriptions I've read online) it seems to have a light purple fine glitter base with dark purple, blue, green, and gold bar glitter. Whatever it is, it's gorgeous, and my favorite! It reminds me of Mardi Gras in a bottle.

China Glaze Material Girl
China Glaze Material Girl is a gorgeous mix of dark pink fine and hexagonal glitter. Very pretty, very girly. I'm not a big fan of pink, but this is dark enough to make it interesting.

China Glaze Some Like It Haute
China Glaze Some Like It Haute is a dark grey glitter base with larger holo hexagonal glitter. Very pretty, but done before. I've seen similar colors with Wet 'N Wild coloricon Diamond in the Rough and Sally Hansen GEM crush Glitz Gal (those two previously compared *here*). I'll have to see if they are as close as they seem.

These glitters are great. I'm loving the trend that recently came out with full coverage glitters. While there may be some dupes, there are certainly some that are stand outs (like Marry A Millionaire!).

I can't find them on anymore, but I did see some of these polishes recently at Sally Beauty Supply, and they are available at for $3.50/each. I think I may need to order my missing polish, but it seems rather similar to some other glitters recently released. Any thoughts on that?
