It's the end of the week here on Claw of Cthulhu - It should be the last of my 10 hour shifts at work, I'm still on the hunt for a Star Trek science uniform, and I'm reminiscing about the time where one of my best friends and I were obsessing over 300 and I couldn't get enough of Gerard Butler's thighs. So overall it's been a busy week so let's end it with some polish porn.
I ended up finding China Glaze Glitz N Pieces at a Winners here for $5.99. China Glaze isn't widely available where I live (yay Canada!) so finding anything is always a treat. Ever since the whole Lynderella Connect the Dots and Ninja Polish Sticks and Stones thing - I have always found myself drawn to those solid black and white glitter and bar glitter mixes. China Glaze Glitz N Pieces reminds me of those types of polishes but rather than the solid white glitter, it sports a silver multisize glitter amongst the solid black multisized hex and bar glitter. Most of the overall Glitz Bitz N Pieces collection is like this but substitutes the solid white glitter, with a coloured shiny glitter.
The formula on China Glaze Glitz N Pieces is OK. The suspension base can be a bit thick at times, holding a ball of glitter but overall, one coat of Glitz N Pieces is sufficient to spice up lighter pastel creme polishes.
Here's one coat of China Glaze Glitz N Pieces over two coats of OPI Did It On 'Em:
I tried this polish over a darker polish but I feel like a lot of it didn't work and wasn't flattering. The black hex and bar glitter were hiding so just specks of the silver glitter were peeking. Not sure if I would recommend a darker polish. Here's one coat of China Glaze Glitz N Pieces over two coats of OPI Vant To Bite My Neck?:
My favourite combination (I don't know if it's my biased love for pastel tuquoises) is actually this one. Here's China Glaze Glitz N Pieces over Essie Turquoise and Caicos:
I definitely recommend using a pastel creme when using a polish like this. I am not sure about the the "must-have level" of owning the entirety China Glaze Glitz Bitz N Pieces, but out of the whole collection, Glitz N Pieces is the most versatile.
How do you feel about these kinds of mixes? Do you have a rare bottle of Lynderella Connect the Dots? Anyway some questions there if you'd like to answer. Also again, if you know where I can get a Star Trek science uniform shirt, I may love you forever. Enjoy your Friday and have a good weekend!
