There are a total of six polishes in the collection – but I was good and only bought four! For the color blocked nail art design above, I only used two of the China Glaze Tranzitions polishes – SplitPerson-Nail-ity (dusty pink shifts to fushia) and Duplicityy (mint green shifts to vibrant teal).
Check out the demonstration and tutorial:
I really like the concept of the polishes, however as someone who has been free handing nail art for a while, I found them a bit difficult to master on the first try. First, I think thinner coats would be much better. I know CG claims they give full coverage in just one coat, but I didn’t find that to be true even with rather thick coats! Secondly, I used a polymer type of top coat which usually are a bit thicker. I think a cheapie Wet n’ Wild thin top coat would give cleaner, better results unless (my third point) nail striping tape is used to create clean lines. I also think these polishes should come with instructions, I literally had to go to the China Glaze website to find out if I should use a base coat and whether or not I should wait for the polishes to dry before adding the top coat. I did like that they layer quite nicely! Overall, I think China Glaze Tranzitions’ polishes are an innovative product and I’m looking forward to trying them again – this time following my own advice.
