Review & Swatches - China Glaze Glitz Bitz 'n Pieces Collection

Hey everyone!

How are you all doing? I'm finally getting back into the swing of things after my vacation and managed to get some swatching done yesterday. The first thing on my to-swatch list was the China Glaze Glitz Bitz 'n Pieces Collection, which I'm showing you today.

All of the polishes in this collection are glitter toppers that consist of black hex and bar glitter along with one other colour of glitter.

Keep reading for the swatches and review!

Bling It On is a mix of black and light purple glitter in a clear base. The purple glitter is very blue-leaning, and it can definitely look more blue depending on what you layer it over. I've shown it layered over Zoya Carey.

Glitz 'n Pieces consists of black and silver glitter in a clear base. I chose to layer it over Orly Frolic for my swatch.

Graffiti Glitter is a mix of black and emerald green glitter in a clear base. This is one of my favourites from the collection! I've shown it layered over OPI Did You Ear About Van Gogh?, and I think this makes a great combination.

Mosaic Madness is a clear base that consists of black and bright blue glitter. This is another of my favourites. I decided to layer it over Orly Frisky, but in hindsight, I should have layered it over something that contrasted the blue glitter a little more. In fact, I think this would look really great over a yellow creme!

Razzle Me, Dazzle Me is a mix of black and pale rose gold in a clear base. This one is really pretty. The pale rose gold glitter adds a delicate touch to it. I've shown it layered over Essence Exits On Your Right.

Scattered & Tattered consists of black and red glitter in a clear base. The red glitter is a slightly pale red colour. I layered this one over China Glaze Flyin' High.

The formula/application is basically the same for all six of these, which is why I didn't talk about formula individually like I normally would. It's thick, as you'd expect from dense glitters like this, but still easy to work with. As well, the glitter payoff is the same with all six - one coat is all you need to get the coverage I've shown.

Overall, I do really like this collection and I think it offers an infinite number of layering possibilities. You might not need all of them since they're pretty similar, it just depends on which colours are more your style. My personal favourites are Graffiti Glitter and Mosaic Madness.

The China Glaze Glitz Bitz 'n Pieces Collection is a February release, so it should be available now wherever China Glaze is sold in your area.

  1. i heart this collection! I picked up mosaic madness the other day and layered it over orly's snowcone, and LOVED it. Actually wore the mani for almost 3 days which is unheard of for me, lol. I full plan on picking up Glitz and Pieces and probably scattered and tattered. Thanks for the post! Helped decide which ones to buy. I don't think I need ALL of them, lol. :)

  2. I wasn't really thinking about getting this collection but after seeing your swatches I may have to buy it! c:

  3. My favorite is Grafitti glitter, even though I like the combination of Razzle Me, Dazzle Me over Essence Exits On Your Right the best :)

  4. I feel I need Razzle Me, Dazzle in my life! I wish China Glaze were easier to get hold of in the UK. Great swatches Kayla xx

  5. So pretty!!!

    I love Graffiti Glitter. :O


  6. I own 4 of them and like how they bring life to lots of my creme polishes :-)

  7. Beautiful swatches as always, Kayla! My favourite is the tanzanite/periwinkle Bling It On, but I particularly like your pairing for Scattered and Tattered--the colours really pop!

  8. You really have such a caring boyfriend! Your swatches of these all look gorgeous! (I especially have my eye on the purple and green ones)
