China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitters


Los Angeles, CA - (March 2012): Array your nails in a myriad of color this spring with China Glaze®’s limited edition Prismatic nail polish collection!  Inspired by the colors formed by the refraction of light through a prism, Prismatic by China Glaze® combines glitter and holographic particles to create the ultimate eye-catching, 3-dimensional manicure. 

The Prismatic polishes certainly pack in a rainbow of colors! While they may not be truly "holographic", China Glaze created six (slightly) duochrome glitter polishes speckled with larger pieces of glitter in pinks, greens, blues, and oranges.


The three polishes I received for review each had the same formula - densely packed with glitter, easy to control, and provided even coverage. Bravo, China Glaze, for creating another glitter collection that is a breeze to use (now, if only they were a breeze to remove... le sigh). For complete opacity, I used three thin coats over a base coat (Butter's Nail Foundation).


Ray-Diant is a "greenish-gold shimmer filled with specks of silver, pink, green, orange and blue". To my eye, it looks like a pale gold more than a greenish-gold. I love how the rainbow of large glitter pieces are so visible and don't get buried!


Polarized is described as a "silver metallic sheen sprinkled with yellow, pink, orange and green glitters". This looks slightly pinkish, doesn't it? Like Ray-Diant, I love how the multi-colored glitters complement this polish.


Optical Illusion is described as "aqua green glimmers with a hint of purple filled with pink, yellow, silver, orange and green flecks". This polish had the strongest duochrome of these three - it's a subtle flash of purple, but the effect adds to the complexity of this shade.

I'm very excited about these glitters because they seem PERFECT for creating a glitter gradient!

China Glaze® Prismatic will be available April 2012.  Individual shades retail for $8 MSRP.

In New York City, the best chance of finding the latest China Glaze collection is at Ulta in Rego Park or Sally Beauty in Brooklyn, Queens, or Staten Island. Click here for a list of China Glaze retailers in NYC.
