China Glaze Carnival Lights Glitter

Above & Below: The above pictures are indoors with and flash and outdoors with a flash. The pictures below are with one coat of Essie Matte About You, and although you can't tell in the pictures, the matte coat causes the polish to have a foil-like finish, which looks really unique.

I couldn't wait any longer for sunshine, so I swatched another one. Please be aware that these are much more sparkly than my pictures are indicating, simply because of the lack of sun. Indoors, the glitter catches the light like no other I've ever seen. The finish on this one was much smoother than the Cosmic that I showed you yesterday, for some reason. This is a medium shade of carnation pink with multi-colored glitter. I added a coat of Essie Matte About You, and it gave the finish a foil-like look. Although the matte coat seriously impairs the glitter's ability to catch and reflect light, it is still very evident and reminds me of pink cake frosting with confetti sprinkles.


  1. What's that clicking sound? It's my tossing items into my online shopping cart! I absolutely adore this polish with the matte top coat. It looks like the glitter is suspended in time.

  2. Wow I have to get my hands on one of these! So pretty!

  3. wooow! this color is awesome! I must buy it!

  4. grrrrrr - why must you tease me sooo with these glitters???

    Must see bad kitty next - purdy please with a dinky on top!!

  5. Ooooo! I love it!

  6. I love these glitters, and this one is pink to boot!

  7. Gorgeous - just gorgeous. *sigh*

  8. I want this sooo bad! I would order all the glitters but I can't. My card was cancelled because of possible fraud from a business I ordered from. This was done for my protectation. The bank didn't notify me. I just ordered all the new Mac polishes. I wasn't able to get them. Since my account was closed. Now I have to go to the bank and get another card. I can't go shopping. This is very annoying. Other than that the polish is insanely gorgeous on you. I also love it matte.

  9. Diana~your cart is overflowing! The real life finish of the matte on this one is so foily and pretty.

    Kitty~you will love them. They're glitter overload!

    Aralka~yes, you must! It's really a nice shade of pink, and of course the glitter is fantastic.

    Brooke~'with a Dinky on top'...ha-ha! How cute, ok, anything for the Dink Meister.

    BeautyJudy~thank you! I was quite impressed with it.

    Kae~I love carnation pink shades...I have a few other pinks in this group to try, but this was my favorite.

    Jamie~These are definitely 'sigh-able' polishes!

    Lucy~oh no :/ That's awful. I got the MACS, but they're lined up waiting to be tried. You'll have plenty of time to get the glitters though and there's so many of them.

    PinkGinger~thanks, glad you like it!

    Skye~thanks! You need to get some of these :)

  10. Very pretty. I really need these nail polish companies to take a break on new releases. I am helpless to resist.

  11. Oh wow, I think I'm in love. Glitter pinks isn't something you see everyday.

  12. I LOVE this one!! Wow! It's gorgeous matte too!

  13. Nosaby~I agree, all of these new releases are killing me! But they're beautiful :)
