China Glaze Glitter All the Way Nail Lacquer
China Glaze Glitter All the Way Nail Lacquer

A Holiday Party on Your Nails

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!).

Two coats isn’t opaque, but it is dense enough that it doesn’t look sparse. I layered one coat over black (one coat of Illamasqua Boosh), and it enabled the glitter to stand out a lot more. I think the sizes become more apparent that way, too. The consistency was on the thicker side–about on par with a lot of glitter polishes–so be careful when applying so that you don’t get too much polish on the nail. I found the glitter spread fairly evenly and didn’t need to be dabbed and pulled at a lot. ¬†China Glaze’s glitter polishes last a week on me with minor tip wear (a little more than I get with a solid color) but no chipping when worn alone. ¬†Over a base polish, the tip wear is on par with average.

If you have this polish already, have you discovered any spectacular layering combinations?

Festive without being a traditional mix of red/gold or red/gold/green. It has a very party-feel, but it's a combination that could work year-round.

    Darrrn not another CG for my wish list LOL!!! This one looks really pretty, and I just got I Herd That and I love how smooth it is :)

  3. Me: “Oh I think I need this.”
    BF: *without looking up from his work* “No.”

    Sob.

    That said, it is gorgeous. And funky. And like you said, not so christmassy that you couldn’t wear it any time you wanted.

    I was going to say that it looked like a dupe for OPI “Mad as a Hatter” but that one is significantly more opaque than this one. I do love the way this one looks over the black polish. Might be a fun way to glitz up some of the darker colors I have.

    It looks gorgeous over black!

  6. I like it alot, especially layered on top of that darker polish!

  7. This feels almost Mardi Gras to me! Really like that this isn’t the traditional mix of glitter colors for the holidays.

    I just can’t get behind all these multi-colored glitters that companies are releasing en masse. It looks like they swept up all the leftover glitter off the floor and dumped it in a bottle. I love glitter but when it’s just a bunch of colors thrown together it looks childish to me.

      LOL, I love your comment!

      I think that every time I see the different shaped glitters. The ones with the hearts and chunky glitter together.

  9. I love the mix of purple in there. Also, the larger size of green glitter is nice. I think I may need to look into this.

  10. I think this is fun and in line with a lot of the types of nail polishes that’ve been released lately. It’s too bright for me but I think a lot of people would enjoy it.

  11. I have this nail polish. I absolutely love it. I also love layering Glitter All the Way over other colors.

    I have a very very bad obsession with glitter polishes. *MUST HAVE*

    Christine, I love this and I love how you did an accent finger! Beautiful!

    I got this one and was disappointed. It started chipping and sliding off in shards (if that makes sense?) in just a couple hours. I did not have any oil on my nails prior and I put Seche Vite as a topcoat. The next night I tried China Glaze “Winter Holly” (another holiday glitter polish) and it did the same thing. So strange! :(

      This is how all glitter polishes work on me which sucks because I love them. I get about 2-6 hours of wear before I usually lose a whole nail in one go. I wash my nails and nail polish remover them to remove oils and have tried many base coats. Booo-urns, so pretty!

      i had this same problem when i bought it! i still love the color but yea it chips on me pretty easy, i was really sad.

  14. This glitter polish is such a beauty & I hear nothing but awesome reviews about china glaze. I however don’t own any, shame on me.

  15. this looks so cute over the black polish! Thanks for taking the time to swatch it different ways, it’s much appreciated!

    I need this just because of how it looks over black. *__*

    Just got this polish a week or so ago I look at it and think mardi gras in a bottle I guess the color combination makes me think of that:). I find it to be an extra pain to get off but it was gorgeous over wet n wilds buffy the violet slayer and China glaze little drummer boy.

  18. Christina

    Wow. STUNNING over black.

  19. Angie

    It looks like Happy Birthday by Deborah Lippmann, and i def love that one.

    I layered a coat of this over a blackened purple Orly color. Gorgeous! The deep color gives it a really rich and insanely sparkly effect! The purple makes the other colors, especially the green, stand out more. I’m trying a deep green next: to make the reds, golds and purples stand out.

  21. Crys

    It looks really good over Winter Holly. It is like a Christmas tree covered in multicolored lights. It’s even better if you add some gold leaf topcoat under or over it.
