China Glaze It's a Trap-eze!

It's time to switch the gears! This is China Glaze It's a Trap-eze! from the Cirque du Soliel: Worlds Away collection, which was released last December 2012. It's a glitter explosion! I'm telling you!

It has a milky jelly base packed with tons of chunky glitter in white, silver, green, cyan, orange, yellow, and magenta. It's a circus in a bottle! So festive! This polish reminded my husband of Easter eggs and pop tarts! :) I love it when he has an opinion! Hehe!

I tried to do some nail art with it and this is a heart made with my Sharpie fine point permanent marker, sealed with a top coat! Hehe! :) Again, think about how much fun it would be to design your nails with markers, just like Easter eggs! :D Makes me want to use this again for Easter, layered over a Skittles mani of various pastels! :)

It's a Trap-eze! is FUN, FUN, FUN! If you're feeling down and you need something to cheer you up, this is an instant pick-me-up! You can wear it alone or layer it on top of your favorite bright polish. It's probably not for everyone though.. you gotta love your glitter polish.

I love how the glitter is very dense, you don't need a lot of coats to build it up. You can leave it at 2 coats, but I went along with 3 for full coverage. I enjoyed slapping on those glitters so easily.

Here it is in one coat, so you can see its potential as a layering glitter top coat. 

This is quite a sentimental entry because It's a Trap-eze! is my 50th bottle of polish from Polished Inthecity! :-O Gosh! How time flies, when you're having fun! :D

Polished Inthecity reached 1,500 followers in Instagram this week and this is my celebratory manicure for this significant milestone!

Polished Inthecity is the reason why I got started with blogging and has always been there to motivate me. This takes me back to my first ever blog post. Oh, the memories! Thank you, my dear friend! And CONGRATULATIONS!! :)

Love you lots,
Karen :)


  1. 50th bottle oh my! Now that's what you call 'suki' hahaha!

    1. Hahaha! Yes! But I bet I'm just one of so many! Those 50 bottles comprise about half of my collection. Sometimes, when I think about it, I don't really have much. :D But then, you gave me 7 more! Yey! :D

  2. what top coat did you use? whenever i draw with a sharpie my topcoat runs everywhere :( x

    1. Hi Tammie, Have you heard of the brand Dazzle Dry ( I swear by their base coat and top coat! No more yellowing nails for me! And the top coat is super quick-dry with no shrinkage (unlike Seche Vite). They're non-toxic too! I'm not sure if it's because of the top coat, or if I just gave Sharpie a few minutes to completely dry. But it worked perfect for me. :) Good luck!

  3. Ce vernis est tout simplement sublime !!!
