China Glaze Liquid Crystal

Good morning! Today I have one of the polishes from China Glaze's Prismatic Collection to show you guys! Liquid Crystal is a mix of small glitter that has a blue purple duochrome and medium sized multicolored glitter. This is very very different than what I thought it would be, I was so let down by this collection once swatches started popping up. The good news is these are much better in real life, photos don't really do any justice to them (at least not the 2 that I have!)

I saw someone on Make Up Alley put the Prismatic polishes over black and was kind of blown away by how gorgeous they are that way....so that's how I'm showing you Liquid Crystal, over black! I feel like over black these look so much better, it helps bring out the duochrome in the glitter. The formula was on the thick side, it is extremely dense glitter wise so that's why. Despite the thickness it was easy to apply. I used 1 coat over black for the photos below, yep....1 coat, see what I mean about very dense glitter! In real life the blue/purple duochrome is much more noticeable, it doesn't photograph well at all :( My only complaint about these is that multicolored glitter...I don't like it. I like this but I would have liked it more without that, it takes away from the awesome duochrome glitter!

The Prismatic Collection from China Glaze will be available at all the normal places China Glaze is sold (Ulta, Sally's, etc...) in April. They are already on a few of the etailers, I know I saw them on Transdesign.com the other day!

  4. Reminds me of Excuse Moi with the multicolored glitters. I've seen swatches of all of them, they are so similar. Just barely a tinge of color all leaning towards silver with the multi glitter. I'll probably just get 1. Whichever is my favorite.

  12. I really like that they used super small glitter pieces for the base in this line. It helps me almost enjoy opaque glitters again!

  13. Sally's has them now if you ask nice (the lady got them out of the back for me). I ended up buying the whole collection I love them so much. They all go on nice and are very, very pretty.

  18. I ended up buying Liquid Crystal, Full Spectrum, and Polarized as soon as they came out. I like them, but not as much as I thought I would. I think that I prefer glitters more like Electrify from the Hunger Games collection. These have too much silver in them, even though you tell which is supposed to be the blue/purple, pink, green, etc ones.
