China Glaze Glitter All the Way Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Glitter All the Way Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “exciting multi-color glitter.” It has a multi-sized glitter particles that range in color from violet, emerald green, ruby red, and gold. All the glitter is suspended in a clear base, so it can also be layered over other polishes. I couldn’t think of a dupe for this shade, but I don’t have an extensive review library of glittery polishes (yet!).

China Glaze Cranberry Splash Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Cranberry Splash Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “ruby red shimmer.” It’s a rich, ruby-shimmered red that has almost metallic-like shimmer and subtle blue undertones.  Cult Nails Annalicious has larger shimmer and is a warmer red. Chanel Rouge Carat is very comparable. Nubar Pink Flame is a duochrome, so it sort of has a similar red, but it also has a flash of orange. Zoya Carrie Ann is a bit darker and has larger shimmer.

China Glaze Escaping Reality Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Escaping Reality Nail Lacquer ($7.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “neon raspberry pink.” It’s a vibrant medium-dark pink with a cream finish. There is definitely a neon element to the color, as it is very bright, and it has the signature quick dry down of neons and the semi-matte finish. China Glaze Love’s a Beach is very similar in color, but it has shimmer in it. NARS Anardana is darker, redder. MAC Girl About Town is a darker pink. Zoya Lolly is more matte and not quite as neon.

China Glaze Manhunt Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Manhunt Nail Lacquer ($7.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bold cobalt blue.” It’s a rich, bold cobalt blue. It has more of a jelly finish from what I can tell, as it’s not quite a cream, but perhaps not a full-on jelly finish either. Though very shimmery in finish, Zoya Song is similar in boldness and overall blue hue. China Glaze Ride the Waves is much lighter (and sheerer). Illamasqua Force is similar but a little more muted. Butter London Blagger is more true blue than cobalt.

China Glaze Swanky Silk Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Swanky Silk Nail Lacquer ($6.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “brilliant beige with peach undertones.” At one angle, it’s a brilliant champagne gold, and when tilted, it gets a little bronzy, almost pink-bronze. The shift is subtle, though–don’t expect a serious duochrome here. I don’t have any other similar shades that have a little shift like this one does. Chanel Delight is a bit darker, less golden. MAC Soiree has a similar story–a little darker, not so golden. China Glaze Jingle Bells has a similar golden coloring.
