China Glaze- Optical Illusion

Over the weekend I wore China Glaze- Optical Illusion. This is from the recent Prismatic Chroma Glitters collection that was released this spring. These are very unique! I don't have anything in my stash quite like them. I know Wet n Wild came out with a similar collection, but the bottles were smaller  and the prices were higher for the amount of polish, so they didn't really appeal to me. Optical Illusion has multicolored mini hex glitters in a duochromatic blue/green base that flashes purple in some lightings. It's very hard to describe! The sun wasn't really cooperating today, but I took this picture by the window, so at least I got some daylight.
It looks more silver in this picture, but this is under artificial light. You can see the purple flash just a little bit. This took three coats for opacity.

The light is really yellow here, but I tried to get a shot of the different colors in this polish. The duochrome effect is very subtle and it's actually more apparent in the bottle. In terms of the wear time, it chipped a little bit after a day. I worked on more unpacking this weekend so that could also be why. Fortunately I'm almost completely done with unpacking! Yay!

My mom came to visit me and gave me this polish that she had. It's Revlon- Blushed. I have no idea when this came out but she said that she had it for a long time. I looked on ebay just to get an idea if it was rare, and it was only around $5. It looks like a pretty shade though! It's definitely work safe.
