It's a Trap!

  While the entire China Glaze Cirque du Soleil collection was lovely, I only ended up with one of them, and I am so glad I added it to my collection!

  China Glaze It's a Trap-eze is a rainbow of glitter in a sheer milky base.  The glitters in here include white, blue, green, orange, pink, yellow... and probably some more that I'm missing, in a variety of sizes.  It's a bit on the thick side, which is to be expected with this much glitter, but applied really nicely in two coats.

  I really like the combination of colors in here, and it is pretty unique, at least to my collection.  It seems that China Glaze is catching on to the indie-glitter craze and trying to bring it to the mainstream salon brands, which is pretty fun.  If you like glitters and didn't grab this one yet, I would strongly consider it!  It's a wonderful polish - not a trap at all.  ;)

  1. Haha, I am so glad you included Admiral Ackbar! I was physically incapable of reading that title without hearing his voice. >_<

    I really am impressed with this polish! Fantastic coverage, especially for just 2 coats, and it looks so smooth in your swatches! That's been my one concern, that it'd be kinda chunky on the nail, but I think I'm sold. It's just so cute!

    1. Me too! Dan is a huge Star Wars fan, and for Christmas I got him an Ackbar plush that says "It's a Trap!" when you squeeze his tummy. I have been hearing that a lot lately...

      I was a bit concerned about chunkiness as well but it applies really well!

  2. I love this polish! Can't wait to try it, but I've got too many polishes in my untrieds box, so I suppose I have to wait a bit more before wearing it.

    1. I let mine sit around for awhile as well, so glad I finally got to it! It will be perfect for spring though so it can wait a bit for you :)

  3. This is so pretty! I'm mad at myself that I passed this up when it was at Sally's!

    1. You can still get it - it's a bit harder to find now but I'm sure you can still dig one up somewhere! It's sold out on all of my normal online retailers too, but there are some on Amazon and a few other sellers I've never used before (Beauty Lounge is one). And of course there is always eBay, haha.

  4. I agree that this is a unique color- I don't have anything similar in my collection either. It's just a happy happy polish! I'm also really glad application is good, makes me want to try my bottle even more!
