REVIEW: China Glaze Tranzitions

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I received this China Glaze Tranzitions collection in the mail yesterday and I couldn’t wait to try it out. Each color applies completely opaque in only one coat, and the colors change instantly. I used Seche Vite top coat to get the colors to change, but I may try out different top coats to see which works best. In the pictures, my pinky and thumb are the polish without any top coat, my middle finger has top coat over it, and my index and ring fingers have a design painted on them with top coat. Click the “more” button below to see pictures of each color!

China Glaze Shape Shifter

This color is Shape Shifter. It starts off as a gun metal color, and once you apply a top coat it turns into a deep purple, almost blue shade. In person you can see the difference much better as it was difficult to capture on camera!

China Glaze Altered Reality

This one is Altered Reality. Its a beautiful color, super similar to China Glaze Adore, but I would have to say this ones my least favorite of the collection. The color change wasn’t very noticeable…I tried going over with the top coat a few more times in hopes that it would get darker but it didn’t! I did some looking around online and it seems like other people have that problem too, so its not just me!

China Glaze Metallic Metamorphosis

This color starts off as a grey/tan metallic, and shifts into a more blue metallic shade. The color change was pretty noticeable on this one!

China Glaze Split Perso-NAIL-ity

This color is probably one of my favorites in this collection! It is Split Perso-NAIL-ity – it starts off as a light pink and shifts into a deeper rosy pink. I loved this one so much mainly because the color change was so clear. The only problem I had with it was on my middle finger, where I put top coat all over the nail. The color changed but seemed to be a bit splotchy. I tried putting on another coat of top coat but it only made it worse! I would say that this color is better for designs versus putting top coat on the whole nail.

China Glaze Modify Me

Modify Me is another one of my favorites. I have at least 200 bottles of nail polish, and this color is nothing like any of them! It starts off as a periwinkle color, and changes into somewhat of an indigo shade.

China Glaze Duplicityy

Duplicityy (yes there are 2 y’s!) is a light sea foam green color that transitions into a darker mint green. I had a bit of trouble with this one getting the color to be consistent when applying top coat, but its gorgeous! I’m a sucker for minty greens.

Overall, I think this is a super awesome collection. I have never seen anything like this so it was definitely fun to try out! I may not use it in my every day nail art designs, but I’d recommend this for those who aren’t into crazy nail art but still want their nails to be funky.
