China Glaze Prismatic Chromaglitters Collection Swatches + Review

I've decided to interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for some GLITTER. I received these recently and I've been itching to test them out! I had been stalking my usual nail sites and it wasn't in, so I caved and bought it them on eBay. (I know, I know, smack my hand.) But I was super excited when I got this package. I had to sit on my hands to keep from clapping.

China Glaze Ray-diant is an extra fine yellow golden glitter that leans green with small turquoise, magenta, orange, and gold glitter. This one was the thinnest of the three, but managed to still be opaque at three coats.

They all went on the same - two coats for normal opacity (I used three for pictures because macro is very unforgiving), and they were rough so I had to use two coats of top coat to smooth them over. Otherwise, wear was typical for a glitter - chipped fairly quickly, and they were a pain to remove. Even with foil, I had glitter everywhere!

Optical Illusion was my favorite by far - the light green is gorgeous! Ray-diant was strange at first, but it grew on me as I wore it. It's such a strange yellow color, almost like it's dingy. I dunno. Maybe it's just me. But I appreciate that it's unique.

Just some shots of colors together so you don't think these look tooooo similar. Weee my hands!


Anyone else's hands super different? My nails are really different on each hand...
