Â If diamonds are a girlâ€™s best friend,Â I have a feeling China Glazeâ€™s new set of glitter nail polishes, Eye Candy, will be a very close second. The winter â€œEye Candyâ€ collection boasts dazzling shades of 3-D glitter inspired by the diva of all divas herself â€“ Marilyn Monroe.
I tried two shades: Love, Marilyn and Blonde Bombshell.
Â As a lover of all things red, I was catapulted into instant nail obsession when I tried the Love, Marilyn shade. With a name that is associated with old Hollywood glamour and decadence, the rich red sparkle with diamond flecks lived up to my expectations. Itâ€™s the perfect glitzy Christmas shade, and was a hit at a formal event I attended over the weekend.
As for the second shade I testedâ€¦.
I cannot say enough good things about the Blonde Bombshell color. Itâ€™s a deliciously rich polish that makes your nails look like they are literally dripping with gold. Â It looked awesome when paired with a gold oversized watch (as I’m sporting today), and stands out just enough. Iâ€™m going to stock up on this color without a doubt.
I highly recommend using 2-3 coats to get your desired sparkle and prepping nails fully before trying this polish out. The first time I tried the colors, I only did a quick rubdown with polish remover and didnâ€™t use a base coat (shame on me!) Within a few minutes of drying, the polish literally popped right off my nails. I imagine a base and top coat would do the trick and seal the color better.
The China Glaze Eye Candy collection comes in six glam colors with equally fabulous names. Each polish retails for a humble $8. Go online here to select your favorite shade.
