China Glaze Prismatics - Liquid Crystal (with topcoat)

Today I wanted to show you what one of those China Glaze Prismatic collection looks like with a shiny top coat, since I have read some comments online that some would like to see that.  It does make the glitter pop a lot more, but it is a hungry glitter and this was two rather generous coats of top coat, one being a standard one, and then a fast dry.  I have also tried to capture the duochrome colour shift a little more, if you look at the bottle shot in the second pic, it looks more purple than the first which pulls more towards blue.  I don't think I need to say anymore about the actual polish, as I also wrote lots in the collection swatches.

Speaking of the collection swatches, I would also like to take this opportunity to say that the swatches I did previously were a little messier than I would have liked, but please bear in mind I usually post and photograph a full mani which I am wearing, and tend not to do a whole collection in a limited time (not many good light days in winter here!)  Plus I am really busy at the moment with my work for dog rescue and have a foster dog in at the moment, so yeah, I don't always have a lot of time!

Also I have heard mention that some are put off because my middle finger nail is a different length to the others (because it got broke sadly!) not to mention a few other comments that were a little rude to be honest.  Well, I aren't going to do squat about it, I am not ready to file all the rest down just for one nail in order to please someone I have never met!  I will say however that it doesn't look as unbalanced in real life size but obviously the pics are close up so amplify everything tenfold!  Besides, at the risk of possibly sounding rude myself, its just not that important in the grand scheme of things is it?

Right then, now thats said and done, on with the pics I came here to post :)  I hope you like them of course and I take all constructive criticism on board, but please remember this is a hobby of mine, I am not a professional, so lets be kind and play nice OK?  Thanks :D

It's a shame that you had to deal with any rudeness ... us nail bloggers tend to be a lovely bunch of people. Don't listen to it! :)

I was really hoping that this collection would have a bit more holo-y goodness, but the duochrome that you captured is making me a little happier. I'll check it out when it gets to a Sally Beauty Supply near me.

What the?! People are upset by the length of one of your nails? *Shakes head* There are waaaaay more important things in life. Good on you doing dog rescue! And thanks for the lovely swatches hun! X

I like them and can't wait to get my hands on them.

As for critics - they need to shut the hell up. You also have no reason to apologize for your swatches. Thanks for posting them by the way.

I read those comments as well, and I say ignore them. I also refuse to file down the rest of my nails just because one of them is shorter. They're my nails and I'll do what I want with them. I'm glad you feel the same way.

That being said, thank you for posting these swatches. Thankfully for the sake of my wallet, I am not impressed with any of these polishes and can save my money for some REAL holos! :)

Honestly, reading those OCD comments irritated me more than seeing pics of nails that *gasp* weren't the same length.

Mine are never the same length or shape for that matter. It's just how they come out, and since I don't have a problem with OCD I'm not filing everything within an inch of it's life because it's not "the same".

Anyway, thank you for posting these swatches with topcoat along with the first ones. I can safely say I'll be adding a few to my wishlist when they are released. :D
