China Glaze Glittery Swatches
Somehow, I’ve gone an entire week without drastically chipping a nail – nothing short of a miracle, I know – so today’s swatches actually feature a more acceptable nail length.
Now that Halloween is over and everything from major retail stock to the songs you’re humming in your head are shifting from ghoul mode to holiday glitter, I thought I’d swatch just that: some gorgeous glittery China Glaze polishes, one of which you may recognize from my October haul.
Today I have swatches of 2 China Glaze colours: Ray-diant and White Cap.
I’m very disappointed with how these pictures turned out as White Cap, in these photos, looks more like a bumpy base coat than a polish. In real life, however, it’s a clear polish with a white and gold sparkly sheen that catches a lot of light.
This photo shows the gold off a little more, but I’d still argue the photos don’t do this gorgeous polish any justice.
White Cap is great as a top coat to add a little something extra to a solid nail colour. It’s also lovely when worn alone, either to add an extra gold shine to a stunning outfit or to spice up your golden jewelry ensemble.
Once again, photos can’t do this polish any justice – this polish, no matter how thickly worn, catches light (natural or artificial) in a very stunning way. Ray-diant represents its namesake well.
My pinkie, index, and ring fingers have a single coat, and my middle finger has two coats. With each coat, you’ll get more sparkle.
I can assure you that the colour is more silver and multidimensional than the grey blah that my camera decided to pick up on. The camera/lighting combo just wasn’t working for me today, which I apologize for.
I actually like Ray-diant much more than OPI Crown Me Already, which features both small and large sparkles (unlike Ray-diant). What I like more about Ray-diant is its consistency and full coverage. Crown Me Already tends to get patchy unless you apply multiple layers, and even then it can be hit or miss.
