Conceal it all, big to small. True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer offers customizable coverage from the tiniest of blemishes to larger areas of imperfections.

The innovative formula provides sheer to full coverage that blends easily and won’t look cakey.

China-Glaze-Tranzitions-Collection-Nail-Polishes

China Glaze Tranzitions Color Changing Collection

Limited-edition
Release Date: January 2013
Availability: Sally Beauty, ULTA & Salons

Company’s Description

There’s nail art and then there’s China Glaze nail couture. Reverse French manicure, half moons, ombre, basket weave, dots or racing stripes: nail designs are intricate and multi-colored. China Glaze® introduces a new way to get multi-color, unique nail art with fewer bottles of polish with the new color-changing Tranzitions collection!

China Glaze Tranzitions’ revolutionary new nail lacquer reacts when a clear top coat is applied, changing the color from one shade to another for a stunning effect. Wear any of the six beautiful, color-shifting shades alone, or allow your creativity to run wild and create intricate nail designs by applying a top coat in specific places. Try different looks using nail art brushes, free-hand designs or nail guides. Because each shade changes color, you get two lacquers in one, creating an entirely new look with just one swipe.

Here are swatches of some of the colors from China Glaze’s Tranzitions Collection. Keep reading for photos and applied swatches of the following colors:

  • Duplicity: Mint green shifts to vibrant teal
  • Metallic Metamorphosis: Silvery grey shifts to bluish-charcoal grey
  • Shape Shifter: Smokey violet shifts to dark purple
