Swatch: China Glaze It's a Trap-eze!

The polish in this post was purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

I bought this polish a while ago when a lot of people were going nuts over it, but never wore it until today. I just felt like wearing a glitterbomb! It's a Trap-eze! comes from China Glaze's Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away collection  from last year. It's got silver, magenta, orange, yellow, green and blue hex glitter in two different sizes, suspended in a milky base.

China Glaze It's a Trap-eze! 3 coats with Revlon Matte Top Coat.

I think this polish has a real indie vibe, which is pretty rare for a commercial polish! And of course I always prefer glitter in a colored base rather than as a topper. It's a Trap-eze! reminds me of Fruity Pebbles in milk. :-D

I needed three coats to get decent coverage of my nail line. The polish itself was easy to apply, but I did need to dab on glitter to get it even (and still ended up with some bare spots). I think it looks better when mattified like this, but YMMV!

It's a Trap-eze! doesn't seem to be available at anymore, but you can still find it on Amazon (which is where I bought mine) for a low price.

In other news, I thought I'd mention that starting September 1 I'll be attempting the 31 Day Challenge! Sarah at Chalkboard Nails (one of my absolute favorite nail blogs) will be updating daily, and I'll do my best to keep up. I'm no great nail artist, so it should be good practice for me!

If you want to join in, here's the schedule and hashtag!


  1. So gorgeous. I was never able to find this one when the CdS collection was out. This one was sold out everywhere!

    1. Seriously, look on Amazon! You'll have to get it from a 3rd party seller, but it's very cheap! DO IT!!

  2. Really pretty. I don't usually like glitter in a white base but for some reason this one looks so good to me.

    1. I know what you mean; I think it's because they used so many colors of glitter, it really complements a neutral base.
