China Glaze Tranzitions (2-in-1 Nail Polish) Swatches, Review

Have you ever wished for a two-in-one nail polish - a nail lacquer that has two shades in one bottle?  I think the China Glaze powers-that-be heard many a nail polish junkie's wish and developed a collection of nail lacquers that has two different shades in each bottle - a shade on its own and an altogether different shade after applying topcoat.  This collection is called Tranzitions.

Tranzitions creates a deeper shade of the same nail lacquer color when topcoat is applied over it.  Every nail polish becomes shinier when topcoat is applied, but this nail polish becomes a deeper version of its color without topcoat.

Here are my swatches and thoughts on the China Glaze Tranzitions collection:

China Glaze Split Perso-Nail-ity

China Glaze Split Perso-Nail-ity is a pretty, feminine light pink without topcoat and a deep berry with topcoat.  I applied topcoat on the ring finger tip and dotticure on the middle finger to show how the topcoat varies the polish,  This is one of my favorites from the collection.  I love the light pink with blue undertones.

China Glaze Modify Me is a beautiful cornflower shimmery blue without topcoat, and a mid-tone blue with topcoat.  I do love the shade without the topcoat better, though.


China Glaze Altered Reality (index and ring finger with topcoat; middle and pinky fingers without topcoat)

China Glaze Altered Reality is a metallic teal.  I don't see much difference between with and without topcoats, just a slightly deeper shade is apparent when topcoat is applied.

China Glaze Duplicity (index and ring finger with topcoat; middle and pinky fingers without topcoat)

China Glaze Duplicity is so pretty.  It's like a light sage green without topcoat and a blue green with one.  Very fresh and springy.

 China Glaze Shape Shifter is a very pretty metallic grey that morphs into a deep plum when topcoat is applied.  I like the look of this nail polish with topcoat a lot more than when worn without one.  The deep purple is just gorgeous.

 China Glaze Metallic Metamorphosis (index and ring finger with topcoat; middle and pinky fingers without topcoat)

China Glaze Metallic Metamorphosis is a metallic platinum without topcoat, and a deep grey metallic with topcoat.  I equally like both shades[ very pretty and the dark shade looks edgy as well.

I gotta say that I LOVE the formula of this line!  It applies really creamy on the nails and very obedient - no pooling at the cuticles and minimal streaking even with the metallic colors.  I just love how opaque these are in just one coat.  This is one of the best formulas from China Glaze that I've tried.

All in all, I am really loving the China Glaze Tranzitions collection.  I love the freedom to choose which shade you want to use in every bottle, and I love the easy application and amazing opacity of the shades.
