Below: Bottle pictures L-R: Trophy Wife, Blue Hawaiian, Sunshine, Sour Apple.
Realizing that if I don't start posting more I'm never going to get through all of these polishes at the rate they are coming out, I decided to do a quick 'skittles' with some of the new China Glaze Glitters, Shimmers and Cremes. This isn't my favorite way to present a polish, but it gets the point across!
Trophy Wife is one of the shimmers and it's a subtle salmon pink shade with silver micro-shimmer pieces. My first thought when describing the color was a dusty rose, but it does have some salmon tone to it also. The silver shimmer is abundant in this one, which I think adds to the beauty. It applied well in 3 thin coats, although the formula was on the thin/runny side. The shimmer is reminiscent of a couple of polishes in Color Club's Wild at Heart collection, giving it the slightest holo look.
Blue Hawaiian is a brighter and lighter shade of turquoise, packed full of multi-colored reflective glitter. The green and blue glitter are the most apparent, although there is some bright pink and yellow glitter that shows up as well. This also was done in 3 thin coats and the formula did not seem as jelly-like as some of the previous Glitters from this collection that I've tried. In fact, all 3 of these Glitters seem to have a nicer formula than the others I've used.
Sunshine is of course, the color of sunshine...bright, yellow and fun. The glitter appears to be primarily silver in the bottle, but once applied the pieces reflect the light and you end up with a variety of colors. I see blue, red, pink and gold upon closer examination on my nail. This also is 3 coats and it's still quite sheer. I'm sure that if it were to be applied over a white or yellow base, it would look much better.
Sour Apple reminds me of the color of apple flavored Jolly Rancher candies. Again, this polish is filled with multi-colored glitter and appears too sheer for my liking in 3 coats, but a base color would likely take care of that problem. Some of these sheerer shades would look fantastic over black, particularly this one.
