If confetti, frosting, and sprinkles could be in nail polish form, this polish would be it. China Glaze It's A Trap-eze! is chocked full of rainbow sugar goodness that makes you feel like a five year old in the best possible way when you're wearing it. The minute China Glaze put out this collection I knew I wanted this particular polish! I don't have anything quite like it in my personal collection and the versatility of this color earned it a spot.
It's A Trap-eze! is made up of seven different colors of small and medium sized hex glitters including white, silver, fuchsia, light blue, yellow, orange, and green, all suspended in a milky white semi-opaque base. I wouldn't call it a jelly, but it's not quite a creme either. The versatility factor comes into play since the base isn't totally opaque which means it can be layered over various polishes (especially pastels!) resulting in a candy coated manicure that is sure to catch attention.
My swatch is three coats of It's A Trap-eze! with no base or top coat applied. It's not quite opaque on three coats but it's enough for my shorter nails. Those of you with longer nails would probably need four coats for no visible nail line.
The formula isn't the best glitter I've ever tried, but it's not a dismal either. I did have to do some slight dabbing for glitter placement, but a plentiful amount of glitter was deposited on the nail without any need for digging or fishing in the bottle. The white base is slightly lackluster in the fact that it doesn't lend any depth to the finished product, and I would really recommend layering this with a white jelly polish to prevent it from falling flat. All of the glitter was easily smoothed out with a coat of Poshe, and I didn't have any rouge pieces snagging or creating issue when worn. Overall I'm pleased that I decided to purchase this polish and I'm happy to have it in my collection.
Do you own this color, or any of the others from the China Glaze Cirque De Soleil Collection? What do you think of this candy colored polish confection? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading!
