I got a few of the China Glaze Glitz Bitz 'n' Pieces glitters and have been playing with them a lot lately. I was inspired to layer the pink one, Scattered and Tattered, with Venique's Heels of Dazzle, which is a very pretty red hex glitter over my trusty Urban Outfitters Binge with Zoya Sooki on the accent nail. I thought it would be nice matte, so I topped it with NYC Matte Me Crazy.
I really like these glitters, but man they're a pain. They're very dense, which is fantastic, but they turn goopy fast, and it's hard to get a light layer. On a bare nail or swatch wheel, they can be applied lightly, but over a tacky polished nail, they tend to cling to the polish and form a thick layer of glitter.
Also I've found that they don't wear very well for whatever reason. Maybe it's the bar glitter and large pieces, or something in the base. It's a mystery. I still like them though.
