China Glaze Eye Candy Collection Review, Swatches and Photos
Introducing China Glaze’s Eye Candy 3-D glitters, and man do these pack some real glitter. These polishes are inspired by Marilyn Monroe, glamourous and very pretty to look at, but think again if you’re looking for anything very wearable to work, or something with longevity. Though honestly I can only say that for Lorelei’s Tiara which lasted a solid 2-3 hours on me before chipping away. The rest may be better, and I do have a feeling will last longer for polishes like Blonde Bombshell and Material Girl.
All swatches are two coats with no top coat.
Yellow golden glitter with random chunkier gold glitters, similar to Color Club’s Enchanted Holiday which actually has larger glitter pieces than this one.
Silver glitter with blue flecks, the formula was quite thick I found, I could almost get away with just 1 coat. Unfortunately the wear on this with 2 coats is terrible, it chips literally a few hours after application (despite having a sticky base coat and top coat). Lovely to look at, has terrible wear.
Red glitter with silver flecks, not my favourite from the collection. I know glitter formulas don’t always yield the best results, but this one felt like the glitter was constantly “collecting” on certain areas of my nail, hard to get an even distribution, or at least harder than normal for a glitter polish.
Marry a Millionaire
A purple based glitter polish with elongated lilac and mixed coloured glitters. This is the only polish from this collection with long glitter, which really makes it seem pretty cool in the bottle, but a little harder to apply evenly on the nail. I found China Glaze’s CG in the City to be similarish.
Despite not considering myself a “pink” girl, this is my favourite from the collection because the shade of pink used here is to me, very wearable. It’s a dustier rose pink, that was formulated just right for that delicate feel.
Some like it Haute
A charcoal gray glitter polish with large silver flecks, a really lovely shade that I probably wouldn’t see myself wearing to work, but it’s not particularly “attention” grabbing either.
