Optical Illusion

Today I have an Optical Illusion for you and a lot of photos.
This is China Glaze Optical Illusion from the Prismatic Collection.  It's a silvery aqua green that's packed with glitter but it's not thick or lumpy.  It has larger glitter scattered throughout in pink, gold, silver, orange and green, and there's a subtle duochrome effect that shows blue and purple at the right angles.

I love this polish, much more than I expected to.  It has such good coverage for a full glitter.  It's smooth and easy to apply without any dragging or gaps.  It does dry rough but that's what top coats are for.

Check out this glitter!

The duochrome is hard to see and harder to photograph.  I took a lot of photos to try and capture the colour shift but failed.  You'll just have to trust that it is visible to the naked eye.

You can just see the purple colour in the edges of the bottle.

How's this for colour?  It's fake, it's actually the reflection from my trousers (yeh I know pink trousers) but it makes a cool photo :P

I purchased Optical Illusion online from The Nail Shop.  I also got Prism and I'm tempted to get more colours now.  I love a full cover glitter that applies so easily and isn't thick.  No sign of any chips yet and I only used a thin top coat.


  1. Wow! That close up photo is awesome, you can really see the gorgeous colours and details of the polish.

  2. I didn't think I wanted any from this collection until I saw your macro shot!
