China Glaze Full Spectrum

Full Spectrum is part of the China Glaze Prismatic collection, available now at e-tailers and beauty supply stores. It's a clear base so full of soft pink and holographic glitter that you almost can't tell the base is there. It's another suitably springy glitter--pastel but so sparkly it doesn't feel muted. Full Spectrum itself could have been a bit more opaque--I used three coats for the swatches and there were one or two bald spots left. However, it was a dream to work with, not too thin, not too thick, no dragging or pooling, and no need for fussiness in placing glitters. The micro-glitter that gives Full Spectrum its primary color has a slight shift from silver to pale pink.

  1. You know, I wasn't to crazy about these polishes until I saw them in person. They really are gorgeous!

  2. I know--I don't think any swatches, mine included, do these polishes justice.
