Doth My Eyes Deceive Me? - China Glaze Prism and Optical Illusion

So there have been a number of gorgeous polishes that I have managed to get my grabby hands on, and two of those are China Glaze's Prismatics! Here, I have Prismatic multiplied by two:

Gradient Prismatics, mmmmm~ I love these polishes.

First, I'm going to focus on Prism:

Like many before me, I find the China Glaze Prismatic collection beautiful, but difficult to capture on camera or even to describe. But let me give it a shot! China Glaze's Prism consists of several different types of glitter. The base glitter is a dense, light blue-purple glitter, and there are plenty of purple-pink microglitter that catches the light at different angles. I think this combination is what gives the polish a colour-shifting look. In the picture above, you can see the different colours in one bottle - blue-purple in the middle, and purple-pink around that and towards the sides.

You can also see the larger, round colourful glitter - in red, blue, green, yellow, silver. I love this extra touch!

How pretty is that? The shade is a bit bluer in my picture than in real life, and you can see the colour difference was clearer in the bottle than it is on the nail.

I think I managed to capture a little of how you can see the different colours existing on each nail, where they catch the light differently.

But you know, why stick to one Prismatic, when you can have two? So I added China Glaze Optical Illusion to Prism, in gradient style.

Optical Illusion is a sea green to gold-green glitter, with similar larger round glitter. Adding it to Prism just makes the mani so gorgeous. All that different glitter and colours! :D

The last photo is under indoor lighting, to help me catch the different colours these polishes have. Aaah, I really do love the Prismatics!

You might have noticed that my long nails are now short square-ovals. I chipped one badly, and I had to cut it short so that it wouldn't have the chance to break past the nail bed. In fact, you're probably going to see a lot of gradients/tips manis, because I need the extra reinforcement since the chip is still there.
