It's only recently that I started pampering my nails with at-home treatments and polish. I've tried most drug store brands, from cheap $2 brands that chip a day after to the more expensive brands that cost as much $10 per bottle. I happened across a fashion blog post that was all about China Glaze. I had never even heard of it but I loved the way the Prismatic colors sparkled. I'm a sucker for glittery nails. I immediately searched for them on Amazon and I couldn't believe how cheap they are. I was skeptical. I am happy to report that I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome this brand is!
I applied two coats of the Prismatic on my fingernails and finished them off with an off-brand top coat. It has been close to a week and they still look as if I had painted them only a day ago. I hand wash my dishes in fairly hot, soapy water at least twice a day (and I don't wear gloves). I also work with my hands a lot doing arts and crafts, using tools that sometimes find their way banging on to my nails. But my sparkly nails still look fab!
I'm so pleased with how quickly the polish dries. I am a bit impatient when it comes to any type of beauty regimen so I often bought the fast-dry brands. The problem with many of those was that it was next to impossible to get a smooth finish. With the China Glaze, it goes on evenly without it clumping or creating unsightly dry lines in the middle of the nails.
I highly recommend China Glaze. In fact, I don't plan on ever buying another brand. I am hooked!
I received an alert that this set of polishes were discounted by $20 or $30 dollars. I paid $19 for all 6 bottles. That is an awesome deal. The colors, especially over black, are crazy awesome!!! Received order w/ no problems.
I was not sure when I ordered this, thinking they might be the same colors with a hint of difference. Well they are all different. They go opaque in 2 coats and the base color isn't clear, they actually have base color as shown on the monitor. Very sparkling and I love the glitter.
I think the glitters are pretty. One thing I like is that at times depending on how the light catches the polish I notice a shift in the color. If I had to describe what the polish looks like up close, it looks like there is a base color, which in itself is glitter and then on top of that there are bigger pieces of multi colored glitter. I notice on the blue and green colors that the base is also composed of a jelly base in the same hue. The coverage is good with one coat and when I run my finger across the dried polish it isn't too gritty, though it's not perfectly smooth either. Overall after seeing them up close and personal, I could do without two of the colors, they just don't do anything for me. I do like the chroma glitters collection but I don't love it, I'm not wowed by it.
These babies look absolutely AMAZING over black polish. They look pretty cool on their own, too, but the true beauty is when you put them over black. Totally worth it if you love glitter like I do. Oh, they're also very opaque. Over black or another base you only need one coat for full coverage. On their own I think 2 coats should do the trick. Pain in the a** to remove but that's just the way glitters are. They just want to be all up on that nail, as is their way.
These are very nice! They look great on their own or over another color. They have large specks of all different rainbow colored glitter as well as small flecks. Goes on pretty thick. I will say that they are all very similar, just slight change in the back round color base,I felt like they could use more individual personality-maybe different glitter based on the color, but if you love glitter polish, you will love all these! I'm sure they are meant to be sold individually and that is why they are so similar. The blue is so far my favorite, the purple and pink are almost the same. (Seller was awesome and they shipped really fast, received them in two days, even though it said 5-12. Product came from Cali and I am in Michigan. Awesome!) (love2shoppinhere was my seller)
I ordered these so excited to have the prismatic collection, but when they came in the mail and I use one I realized they were fake. I compared the bottles to other china glaze ones I own and they did not match up at all. Even giving one star is generous of me. Don't buy these unless you want low quality knockoffs.
