China Glaze Glitter: Bad Kitty

Above: Bad Kitty in direct sunlight. It starts out as a pale watermelon shade, but deepens and becomes more vivid after each coat.

Above & Below: These photos were taken outdoors in various degrees of shade, no flash. As you can see, the amount of glitter in these polishes is massive!

Below: Indoors, with flash.

Below: This is one of my 'Bad Kitties'. All he needs is a beer and a cigar in his hand!

Today I have another shade from the Glitters, Shimmers & Cremes collection that China Glaze is releasing over the next couple of months. Bad Kitty is one of 6 shades in this collection available at Victoria Nail Supply now, and some of the other shades are available at Sally Beauty. Bad Kitty is a lighter watermelon shade with a very jelly type base, and packed full of small multi-colored glitter. I would love to have this polish in just the base color without the glitter because of it's extreme jellyness. This is shown in 3 coats and after the first coat, the color begins to build very well. I imagine that's because there's so much glitter for the polish to adhere to!

The winner in the Organic Apoteke drawing is Diana from the beautifully photographed and well-written blog, Painted Lady Fingers. Congratulations Diana on winning the travel sized bottle of Rasayana Rejuvenating Serum!


  1. Very nice but a bit too sparkly for me. I love my shimmer.. but im not a hue fan of chunky glitter!
    Love the cat pic!! Haha so cute!

  2. It looks similar to the other glittery pink you showed. Love the cat. I have a fat cat who sits like that often. Hilarious.

  3. I have to get this one for the name alone lol! Very pretty, love it!

  4. Oooh, look at that big fluffy kitty, with his ears back! LOL! He's too cute.
    I really quite like this one! Especially the name. Haha. I have a bad kitty. This is such a pretty deep pink with gorgeous glitter!
    Haha, have to say, I do think Kitty needs to get it :D

  5. Congrats to Diana! I love that picture of your kitty and the image of him having a beer and a cigar LOL. Bad Kitty looks gorgeous on you!

  6. Awww your kitty is so cute! Love Bad Kitty it would be a great summer polish, a little to much glitter but i think i can look past it..

  7. I have to get this one, just have to! It's amazing!

  8. I ordered this one and all the rest that were available. It's a gorgeous color and masses of glitter. Your nails look so beautiful and glittery. I love your cat! I would love to have one like that. I had an all black cat when I was about 14 years old. She wouldn't go near anyone buy me. Everyone else would get hissed at. He looks so beautiful and furry. Congrats to Diana. She does have a beautiful and interesting blog. Much like this one. Your the best Mary!

  9. Tali~it is a bit over the top, all of these glitters are! My cat has a strange personality, as if you can't tell that from the picture :)

    Nosaby~it is similar to the other one, Carnival Lights, but I'd say Carnival Lights is a more mauve-pink, while this one is a more bright pink.

    Kitty~I totally agree...the name is so you!

    Nicole~I think if I had to choose, I'd pick Carnival Lights for a pink shade, but they're both nice.

    BeautyJudy~thanks! These glitters are almost, dare I say, too glittery! Maybe I'm just tiring of the removal :/

    Katie~it is great for a summer shade, but it might be a bit much in the Fall or Winter.

    Alexlyndra~thay're all unique polishes in this glitter part of the collection. I hope you can get some :)

    Lucy~I know you'll enjoy yours! I'm more of a dog person, but we do have 2 cats and they can be rather entertaining!
