Another swatch post! In addition to my Essie Mini Cube I ordered three colors from the new China Glaze: Cirque Du Soleil - Worlds Away Collection. I chose three glitter polishes because they seemed to be something new, especially for China Glaze. After three weeks of waiting they have finally arrived in Switzerland and are ready to be worn. I chose Get Carried Away, Whirled Away and It's A Trap-Eze which is my favorite. Read on to learn more about my three picks.
China Glaze - Get Carried Away
On my pictures you see one coat of a black nail polish and two coats of Get Carried Away on top. It is a sheer black base with black, red and silver hexagon glitters, tiny silver glitter and black stripe glitter. I think you could wear this without a base color but I prefer it like this. I don't really get the stripe glitter, I don't think it fits this polish and it appears a bit random to me. But given that you can not see black glitter on a black base, I don't really care. On top is one coat of BTGN Top Sealer.
China Glaze - Whirled Away
As my fellow nail polish bloggers, I was kind of disappointed by Whirled Away. I expected at least some of the white glitters to appear on the nail, but I had to place all of the white ones with a toothpick. And if I do that, why does it need to be in a bottle of nail polish in the first place? I tried my best with this one and added it over a black to white gradient. I kind of like the result but I don't think that there's another way I'd like to wear this. Any ideas? On top is again one coat of BTGN Top Sealer.
China Glaze - It's A Trap-Eze
This one was actually the reason for my order. I love everything about it, the name, the formula, the glitter colors... It's a light blue/milky white sheer base with a lot of tiny glitter. Red, green, blue, yellow, pink etc. It reminded me a bit of Tony Moly - Shooting Star, just in much better. I used two coats and despite all the glitter I didn't have any problems. On top is one coat of BTGN Top Sealer which makes it as smooth as required.
By the way, if you're wondering how I remove all that glitter afterwards: I use my Peel Off Base Coat by Essence (others use glue) and then in addition aluminium foil and cottonpads with remover to soak the polish. Works fast and efficient.
