Like an explosion of neon fireworks, China Glaze Point Me to the Party from the Electric Nights Collection is a must-have nail polish, as far as I’m concerned!
For a big mainstream company, I was pleasantly surprised to see it channeling a look that is more reminiscent of indie nail polishes. (Since I don’t have too many indies in my collection, this got me very excited!)
Neons are some of my favourite lacquers to wear any season because they are an instant pick-me-up. Now, with China Glaze Point Me to the Party, you could layer a neon base with a multicoloured neon glitter topper!
For this manicure, I layered China Glaze Point Me to the Party over my existing manicure, which was KBShimmer Sarong Place, Sarong Time (from the Summer 2015 Collection), which I reviewed in-depth yesterday.

China Glaze Point Me to the Party Review
If you enjoy wearing neon nail polish, but you are having trouble whittling it down to a single shade or you aren’t interested in doing a skittle manicure, Point Me to the Party by China Glaze is a polish that you’ll want to reach for immediately!
Housed in a clear base (suitable for layering over practically any colour) is glitter in a neon rainbow: green, orange, pink, and blue.
Together, they make for a fun sprinkling of cheer that lends a playful touch to any manicure. Plus depending on what you wear underneath, it can look very different. (For instance, try layering it over another neon, a white, or a dark shade.)
Point Me to the Party by China Glaze is full of different-sized glitter, so it should come as no surprise that there’s noticeable texture. Once you put a thick, glossy top coat over it, everything smoothes out beautifully.
The glitter is matte, but the clear polish it’s suspended in is glossy. For this manicure, I wore the glitter topped with a glossy top coat, and I loved it. However, I can see how if you mattified the whole thing, it would also be pretty fun to wear!
Application & Formula
The consistency of my bottle of Point Me to the Party by China Glaze wasn’t thick or like old glue. The clear base flowed easily onto my nails, and I began at first by applying this polish like a typical lacquer. Then, in any spots that may have looked a little less sparse than others, I used the dabbing motion to apply a little glitter to fill up the area. (I only did this to one or two nails from both hands in total, so it’s not something that you’ll have to spend a lot of time doing. Manipulating the glitter in this one is easy and fast.)
I noticed that the ratio of clear nail polish to glitter was high. Maybe this was to allow for a smoother application of glitter.
Since it has so much chunky glitter, it’s harder to remove than a smooth creme, but that’s to be expected. Plus if you only use a single layer, it’s way easier than if you load up several layers of glitter.
What It Looks Like Solo
When I wore this polish, I used a bright violet base, but I wanted to show you what it looks like by itself, so you can dream up your own fun layering combinations! 🙂
In the below swatches, the one on the left has one coat, and the nail on the right has two coats.
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
Especially if you don’t own a lot of indie nail polishes, Point Me to the Party by China Glaze could very well be unique in your collection!
I know that many indie nail polishes do a lot of glitter combinations (and even with glitter), but it’s nice to see that China Glaze, a big company, is making this type of polish readily accessible to the mainstream polish lover. 🙂
I highly recommend you try this polish. When you do, you’ll want to try other fun layering combinations and experiment to your heart’s content!
