China Glaze Glitz - Bitz 'N Pieces

i have finally gotten everything together for the big China Glaze Glitz - Bitz 'N Pieces post! this collection is really beautiful... you can't go wrong with any of the polishes in it. all the polishes are glitters consisting of a single color hex glitter and multiple sizes of black hex and bar glitter pieces, all in a clear base. all the polishes have pretty much the same formula, quite packed with glitter and fairly thick. it applies a little clumpily, but you can work with it and get it spread around pretty evenly... then pat pieces onto any bald spots. the giant hex pieces don't come out as much as the other pieces, so don't expect to get one on every nail. it dries fairly smooth, but it looks even better with an added coat of topcoat.

to really showcase these glitters i used China Glaze White On White (a white creme) as the base for each swatch. each swatch has one coat of glitter (with some placing and the occasional second coat), and they are all topped off with one coat of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat!

let's kick off with Mosaic Madness... the colored glitter is a rich, warm blue... almost peacock colored. this is my number one pick from the collection!

next up we have Bling It On, a light periwinkle blue leaning purple. i thought that Mosaic Madness and Bling It On would be similar... but they actually aren't close at all.

then we have Glitz 'N Pieces, in which the colored glitters are silver!

the close sister to Glitz 'N Pieces is Razzle Me, Dazzle Me, which is a golden pink glitter... almost a rose gold! i love that there is both a cool and a warm metallic in this collection... i don't think i can even choose between the two :D

next we have Scattered & Tattered, in which the colored pieces are red. i love how this whole mani looks, it feels like it would have been perfect for Valentine's Day!

lastly we have Graffiti Glitter, which contains rich emerald green glittered. i love how saturated and vibrant the green is!

the Glitz - Bitz 'N Pieces collection is available where China Glaze products are sold... i saw the collection in a display at Ulta over the weekend! be sure to check out China Glaze's website...

what do you all think of this collection? i really love it, there's just something sexy about black glitter! Ria :)
