Hi all- back on the grind today. Vacation is over. Sad face. It's amazing how fast vacation days go by. I didn't go anywhere or do anything special. It actually reminded me of being on school break when I was kid. I had no rules- ha! I slept in, watched bad cable TV and caught up on my Netflix shows. Oh- and I finally watched Downton Abbey. Where have I been?! That show is amazeballs! But now I am itching to see the second season and will have to co-opt the DVDs from my friend. I managed to get some swatching and fun designs done while I was on my staycation. I am supposed to be on a low-buy for the month of January but I'm not off to a good start! While out running errands I had to stop at one of the nail supply shops I frequent to pick up acetone and top coat. I can never leave that place with just the items I originally went in for so I picked up two colors from China Glaze 2013 Spring Glitz Bits N' Pieces Collection, Razzle Me Dazzle Me and Scattered & Tattered. This is a pic heavy post so read more after jump!
First up is Razzle Me Dazzle Me. RMDM is light pink glitters with small and large round black glitter and black bar glitter. Application was incredibly easy; the bar glitter was easy to manipulate which is awesome - no annoying pieces popping up from the nail which is my usual issue with bar glitters. And I didn't have to fish for the large round black glitter. This is one and half coats over NYX Dream Catcher and a thick coat of SV.
Next up is Scattered & Tattered. This is my favorite of the two. Red and black glitter?! Yes, please! S&T is bright red glitter with small and large round black glitter and black bar glitter. The formula is pretty much the same as Razzle Me Dazzle Me; very easy to apply. My small gripe is that the large round black glitter wasn't as easy ti find in this one and I had to do a bit of fishing for it. But it wasn't so big an issue to put me off wearing this again. This is one and a half coats over China Glaze Elephant Walk and one coat of SV.
This looks like a really fun collection overall. I restrained myself from buying the other 4 colors in the collection. But I have my eye on Grafitti Glitter which is a green chunky glitter and Mosaic Madness which is blue chunky glitter.
China Glaze Glitz Bits N' Pieces will be wide released in February.
