China Glaze Glam & Solar Flare

These are the first two polishes I have gotten from China Glazes glitter specialty collection, or what ever they call it.

Glam the pink one and Solar Flare the gold one.

In the photos I have done one nail with one sparse coat and the other with two coats for each polish.

These polishes can get thick quickly or may be thick when you get them. That's ok you just have to dab a lot of the polish off before applying if you only want a little glitter, otherwise they are perfectly fine.

I found that these polishes dried very quickly and look amazing shiny or matte.

Glam has a big sister called Doll House which is exactly like Solar Flare, just the colour of Glam. And of course Solar Flare has a little brother called Treasure Chest which is exactly like Glam only gold.

Glam has very similar glitter to what is found in Spellbound and Fortune teller. It just lacks the very small glitter. I still love it to pieces though.

Solar Flare is big chunky hex gold glitter. As big as the glitter is I have worn it maybe 3 or 4 times since getting it. I just can't get enough of it.

What do you think of these polishes? Do you prefer them jam packed or a little more sparse?


  1. Those are great combinations!

  2. I'm not a huge fan of glitters but I like the gold one.. which is more packed on.:)

  3. I like the sparse ones - the gold matte in particular!

  4. i like the sparse ones for the pink one and i LOVE both the sparse and jampacked one for the gold...would it be possible for you to take a pic of both bottles of polish? they look awesome but i've never heard of the collection before...thanks so much in advance if you coulda! =)

  5. I LOVE Solar Flare. I have Dollhouse and Solar Flare has been on my list for awhile now. Next time I order online, I'm definitely getting Solar Flare! I wear Dollhouse all the time!

  6. I'm loving solar flare over the black- very unique! xo

  7. I like the sparse look, especially the pink one.

  8. I love glam over black with the matte - amazing!!
