Hey everyone! China Glaze's Glitz 'n Pieces collection consists of 6 bottles of jam packed glitter concoctions. I'm going to start off by saying this instead of repeating myself over and over again below - each bottle basically consists of a coloured medium hex and finer glitter, mixed in with black bar, larger hex, medium hex and finer glitters. When I first heard of this, it occurred to me it wasn't the most innovative idea but after swatching the polishes on my nails, I love each and every one of the bottles from the collection.
Formula wise, each bottle is jam packed with glitter so the pay off is absolutely amazing. There is no need to fish for glitter pieces and in fact, each nail has a unique look depending on what glitter piece makes its way onto it! All my swatches will show one coat over a base colour.
First up, I have the namesake of the collection - Glitz n pieces. It consists of silver glitter particles combined with the black mixture. For my swatch, I layered it over Rimmel Grey matter. Because of how versatile the glitter colours are, this is one I'll be reaching for often!
Scattered and tattered contains a red and black mixture. It is layered over a white base below. I wasn't sure of what to layer Scattered and tattered over first because of the red - I thought pink would tone down the more dramatic red glitter effect so I decided to go with white in the end. Love it so much! ♥
Graffiti glitter, oh how I adore thee! I layered one coat over OPI Thanks a windmillion. The brighter, emerald green glitter just stands out so well over the dustier base colour!
Razzle me dazzle - do you contain a pale pink or the palest of copper hex glitter shades? I do believe it look like the latter when layered over OPI Did you 'ear about Van Gough. This polish is a funny one in terms of colour combinations and it's not one I would normally pick up, but it looks so pretty on the nail!
Mosaic madness contains bright blue glitter pieces along with the standard black glitters. Whilst I lean heavily towards blue polishes, this one didn't stand out to me as much.
Bling it on is a blurple and black glitter mixture. Over Australis Peek-a-boo, the blue side stands out more but in the bottle, there is more of a purple tinge (not that my camera helps with showing that!).
I love that the major nail polish companies are dipping their fingers further into the glitter bandwagon and are coming up with more interesting combinations. It's funny how I'm not usually a bar glitter fan, but love the effect it has in these nail polishes - maybe it just has to be in moderation :)
Are there any you know you'll be needing to get from the Glitz 'n Pieces collection? :)
Thanks for reading!
