Today I've got a great polish named after a great movie! Yes, I have China Glaze Some Like It Haute for you from the new 3D Eye Candy Glitters Collection. Like the other polishes in this set, it has a Marilyn Monroe-themed name, this time after one of her best movies, 1959's "Some Like It Hot." Some Like It Haute is a gunmetal grey glitter mixed with larger round holographic glitter. This polish reminds me of geodes. I really love it! It's shaping up to be one of my favorites from this collection.
Some Like It Haute's formula was a bit on the thick side and could maybe benefit from a drop or two of thinner, but I kept it as-is since it wasn't that bad. I used three coats here. I used one coat of Seche Vite and it didn't appear to dull the effect of the holographic glitter at all, which is great because you'll definitely want to use a topcoat with these Eye Candy glitters to even out the gritty texture.
I've seen this tossed around as a dupe for Orly Rock Solid (check it out HERE if you like) and while they are definitely similar in concept, the holographic glitter in Some Like It Haute is much larger and flashier. Some Like It Haute gives you much more of a gem-encrusted look. But if you missed out on Rock Solid, this could be a good way to satisfy that itch-plus you get some extra bling! Both are beautiful polishes to have in your collection.
Some Like It Haute does seem to be a dupe for Wet N Wild Diamond In The Rough, Sally Hansen Glitz Gal from the new Gem Crush Collection and Nails Inc Sloane Square based on swatches I've seen. Phew, that's a lot of dupes! Overall, I'd say this is another winner from this collection! I can't wait to try the rest of the ones I got!
