Hi everyone! Today I have to share with you 3 lacquers from the China Glaze Tranzitions collection. This'll be released officialy January 2013 but it has been spotted in stores already.
The idea behind this collection is that when you apply it, it has a certain color, and adding topcoat will give it another color. That way you could easily do nailart like polkadots, or french tips and such. Also, it is 2 polishes in 1 bottle!
Sadly, I do not like them. The reason I do not like them is because 1. I love to add topcoat for a smooth glass finish and 2. they are streaky as hell after adding topcoat (OR don't really show color difference). There is 1 good part, all the colors I'll show you, were applied with 1 coat. I haven't tried yet but that should make them suitable for stamping purposes!
Let's start with Split Perso-Nail-Ity. A lavenderish pink color, that becomes a bit more vibrant and darker after topcoat. This was the ugliest of all after topcoat.
I have seen cute manicures with dots and such (check Marta for an example) but I am not sure how I could get this polish to work for me.
The basecolor is pretty and it applied easy in 1 complete covering coat.
After the pink one, we have a periwinkle blue color called Modify Me. This is also a creme/pearl base that has a darker blue color for you when topcoat is applied. This wasn't as streaky as Split Perso-Nail-Ity, but still.. not so pretty when totally topcoated.
I do LOVE the basecolor for this one so I might try and do something with this in the feature.
It applied easily in 1 complete covering coat.
This is a metallic polish instead of the creme/pearls I just showed you. This makes the streaky effect the topcoat gives to the other two less appaerent, but unfortunately this one has barely any color change. It does make for a quick and easy manicure as this is also a 1 coater.
