China Glaze-It's a Trapeze!

Hi dolls.  So, about a month ago, one of my long time readers and fellow makeup junkies gifted me It's A Trapeze!, along with other goodies.  I guess my whining paid off.  :)
This was the polish that I was lemming after from the Cirque Du Soleil collection.  I even went so far as to try and recreate it with other polishes that I already had in my collection.  See that fun jelly sandwich here. 
I've been dying over milky white polishes with multi-colored glitter mixed into it.  It's like a giant jawbreaker, but your nails!  *squeal!*
I don't know, but it just speaks to the kid in me... I love how fun it is.  I could buy the indie versions, but I don't know...I kind of squawk at some of the prices... So I thought that it was kind of cool that China Glaze came out with their own version.

Anyways, It's A Trapeze! is gorgeous.  No fishing for glitter required.  I wore this over my go-to white creme, Sally Hansen's White On, to create a more opaque look (and to selfishly save on the precious polish!)  Then, I topped it off with Seche Vite 'cause I don't like bumpy glitter.  

What do you think about Indie polishes and some of their pricing?  Or is it just me?  



  1. I DIE for these kind of polishes, they're my weakness! I love this one, it's so gorgeous(: It reminds me of a jawbreaker as well! Definitely have to go pick this up for myself haha


  2. I thought I wanted this when it first came out and I still think it's really pretty, but glitters just drive me crazy to remove so I've sworn off of buying any more.

    I think most indie pricing is ridiculous! I have 4 indie glitters...I really liked the look of them and bit the bullet and bought them, but I won't be buying any more. They are just entirely too costly. I was a huge buyer from Cult Nails and have half of their collection, but they have increased their price to $12 a bottle and I just refuse to pay that much for a bottle of polish. Their formula is superb, but too costly for me. If they aren't having a sale, I won't buy them.

    1. Have you tried the Elmer's glue removal method yet? Why not?!? If you haven't you must! It makes removing glitter bombs so easy!

    2. You know, I have not. Shame on me. I saw quite a few tutorials on this too...I think I'll give it a try.
