I picked up three of polishes from the new China Glaze Prismatic Chroma collection - Optical Illusion, Prism, and Full Spectrum. I knew I wanted the first two, but didn't think I would like the third. That is until I saw it in person. Overall, these polishes are flawless. They apply like a dream, are opaque in two coats, and are so shiny you need sunglasses...in doors! These have quickly become some of my favorite glitters. For Easter, I wore Full Spectrum. This girl is a beauty!
Full Spectrum starts out as a really gorgeous icy platinum. It is a bit sheerer than the other polishes from the collection, but it does build to full opacity. What you see in the photos is two coats. I personally don't mind VNL, so I didn't worry about a third. Read on for more pictures!

These polishes are so pretty to look at both in the bottle and on the nail. They are really complicated with different sizes of glitter and different textures. I love the larger multicolored glitter dispersed throughout the nail. These are surprisingly mature glitters and are just really beautiful on the nail. I could not stop staring at my hands! In the sunlight, these babies shine like a disco ball. I was literally blinded while trying to take pictures!

What is most neat about these, and most talked about, is that they are also duochromes! The shift is more prominent in the bottle, but you can see a subtle shift on the nail. Full spectrum shifts from platinum to a lovely pink, which is further accentuated by the bits of green glitter dispersed in the polish.
I found that most of the time the polish looked either platinum or pink, but I am certainly not complaining. Full Spectrum is just so lovely! I'm so glad I picked it up spur of the moment.
On a final note, these are really fun to layer with. I tried layering all three, and the result was gorgeous! I also plan to layer these over some of the Eye Candy glitters and some shimmer or cream polishes. Did you pick up any of these? What do you think of Full Spectrum?
