NOTD: China Glaze Ray-diant


I might have mentioned my love for glitter a few hundred times over the past couple of years.  In particular, I love a sparkly nail - and so when I read about these China Glaze Prismatic polishes via Scrangie (who, incidentally, can make me want any polish), I knew I had to check them out.  

The premise of the range is based on dense glitter with a holographic or duochrome effect.  Ray-diant is a silvery pale green shade which looks anywhere from silvered taupe to golden to pale green depending on the light.  The glitter is largely this subtle colour shifting stuff, with some bigger chunks of multi coloured glitter thrown in.  The overall effect is stunningly sparkly.

You might expect that this kind of polish would be a bugger to apply.  Not so - it's fully opaque after a mere two coats, and the texture is thin enough to apply easily and smoothly, with no need to poke the biggest glitter particles into place with the brush.  Of all the glitter polishes I've tried, this is the nicest to apply.

Wear is decent, at around four days without chips, and surprisingly, it's not an absolute nightmare to remove - not quite as easy as your basic cream shade, but there's no need to soak or scrub to remove the last bits of glitter from the nail.  Unsurprisingly, I've fallen head over heels for this gorgeous glitter - and there might possibly be two more winging their way to my greedy hands in the post.

China Glaze's Prismatic collection is apparently officially on sale in April, but I managed to find plenty of them on eBay despite it being mid-March.  I paid £7.99 for my bottle of Ray-diant - which is a perfectly reasonable price for glitter heaven for me.
