China Glaze Bling It On Nail Lacquer
China Glaze Bling It On Nail Lacquer

Scattered Bitz ‘n Pieces in Six Flavors

China Glaze Glitz-Bitz ‘n Pieces ($8.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) includes six shades that each have 3D glitter with black “bitz ‘n pieces.” All six shades include black horizontal bar glitter, small black glitter, and larger black hexagon-shaped glitter; and then each shade has additional colored hexagons and glitter.

  • Bling It On contains bluish-purple glitter in small and medium sizes, along with medium hexagon-shaped particles, plus the black counterparts and black bar glitter. (One coat over L’Oreal’s Members Only, two coats alone on thumb.)
  • Glitz ‘n Pieces contains silver glitter in small and medium sizes, along with medium hexagon-shaped particles, plus the black counterparts and black bar glitter. (One coat over China Glaze Creative Fantasy, two coats alone on thumb.)
  • Graffiti Glitter contains green glitter in small and medium sizes, along with medium hexagon-shaped particles, plus the black counterparts and black bar glitter. (One coat over Zoya Piaf, two coats alone on thumb.)
  • Mosaic Madness contains blue glitter in small and medium sizes, along with medium hexagon-shaped particles, plus the black counterparts and black bar glitter. (One coat over Zoya Blu, two coats alone on thumb.)
  • Razzle Me, Dazzle Me contains champagne glitter in small and medium sizes, along with medium hexagon-shaped particles, plus the black counterparts and black bar glitter. (One coat over China Glaze Bend Over Backwards, two coats alone on thumb.)
  • Scattered & Tattered contains muted red glitter in small and medium sizes, along with medium hexagon-shaped particles, plus the black counterparts and black bar glitter. (One coat over Butter London Trout Pout, two coats alone on thumb.)

I don’t know of any exact dupes for these shades, because changing even one component of a glitter polish can change up the effect of seeing it layered quite a bit. Lynnderella Connect the Dots, which was a mix of black and white glitter in small, medium, hexagon, square, and bar shapes, was my first thought. It is, also, similar to China Glaze’s own Whirled Away from their Cirque du Soleil collection–where Whirled Away was black and white, all of the glitter pieces were much, much larger. The Bitz ‘n Pieces collection is much more interesting, as it adds smaller, finer particles to add interest to the background. Where Connect the Dots was more flat in color, this set of six are more metallic and reflective and seemed more densely-packed per coat.

All six were really consistent; the clear base thin in consistency, but the actual polish (in its sum) was almost thick because it was so densely-packed with glitter.  One coat yields a generous heaping of glitter, and all of the varying sizes and shapes come out in one go, too. There’s no need to push, pull, or dab the polish on, as it all will spread into place as if you were applying any normal polish. Because of the bar glitter, you may find you need to check the edges of the nail so the glitter is flush with the edge.  I wore Glitz ‘n Pieces for wear, and it wore for a full seven days without peeling, flaking, or chipping.
