Review: China Glaze It’s A Trap-eze!

Last week I got some rather exciting Nail Mail! I received a few China Glaze polishes through the post to have a look at.

I’ve wanted some China Glaze polishes for so long now. They’re known to be such a high quality brand with a great selection of types and colours available – including plenty of glitters! And just my luck, the polishes I received we glittery ones!! Woop woop!

So today I have a review of It’s A Trap-eze! for you. It’s A Trap-eze! is a polish with a white creme base, packed full of shiny pink, blue, red, yellow and green glitters in a variety of sizes.
Looking at the bottle, my first throught was of what a lovely spring polish it is! I’m hoping that it’ll get warmer soon and so this polish would look great with some summer dresses!

When I first started applying this polish, I was a little disappointed that the white wasn’t as opaque as I had wanted, so I knew that it would take a few coats to get a decent colour. The amount of glitter was great though – not too much or too little, but I did have to do a bit of glitter blobbing as per usual with sparkly polishes.

What I should have done was to paint my nails with a white base coat before applying this polish. It would have had a much greater effect that way. None the less, I really did like this polish. It is quite different to anything I have seen before which is great in a market full of dupes! It actually reminds me of those little white chocolate buttons that are covered in sprinkles!
Any polish that makes my nails look likes sweets is good by me!

You can buy China Glaze polishes for only £6.95 from Beauty Bay. I quite like the look of the new Hologlam polishes! I’m definitely going to have to keep my eyes out for those!

For this manicure I used:
  • OPI – Nail Envy
  • China Glaze – It’s A Trap-eze!
  • Seche Vite – Quick Dry Topcoat

    This actually looks quite delicate for a glitter – would this look good layered or do you think it is best building it up?

      Yes it is lovely and subtle. I would say a bit of both – one coat of white base, two coats of the glitter. That way you still get the layered effect with the bright white base!
