China Glaze Let It Snow Holiday Collection 2011 Swatches & Review

Today I have the glitters from the China Glaze Holiday Collection to share with you!



Glittering Garlard - dark emerald green jelly base with tiny green glitter throughout that combines to give a very sexy mani! It applied easily with only 2 coats to make it opaque. The glitter really pops on the nail and is not chunky at all.

Blue Years Eve
- blue jelly base with tiny blue glitter. It looks much darker in the bottle but on the nail it's actually more of a royal blue with a hint of green. I only used 2 coats but could have gotten away with a third.

Ring In The Red
- red jelly base with small and medium round red glitter. The formula on this one was very thin and required 3 coats. It's probably not unique to my stash but still pretty.

Champagne Bubbles - golden yellow foil with tiny silver glitter. This one was very thin and required 3 coats. Pretty color but I would have loved a little more glitter in this one.

Tinsel Town - charcoal base with tiny silver and medium round glitter. I applied 2 thin coats to make it opaque. I'm in love with this one and can see myself wearing it a lot for the Holidays!

Snow Globe
- clear base with iridescent glitter that flashes white, blue, pink or green at different angles depending on the base coat it's matched with. I paired it with Glittering Garland and Blue Years Eve.



The glitters are quite cute and the colors are reminiscent of the Holiday Season. Champagne Bubbles actually reminds me of Christmas ornaments. All of the polishes applied smoothly with little issues except Champagne Bubbles which left a few streaks and like most yellows required 3 coats. Overall I like that the glitters are exciting but still work appropriate. My favorites are Glittering Garland, Tinsel Town and Blue Years Eve. I'm still waiting for Twinkling Lights which was sold out when I purchased the others. I'll post swatches when I receive it.













Thanks for stopping by! Have a great polishing weekend ;)

  6. @GothamPolish. I agree. They're doing a great job this year!

    @ImFellingNailVenturous. I don't mind. Thank you :)

    @Jacki You're welcome!

    @Maria. It was pretty easy. I only used 1 coat and smeared it around the nail. The glitter did tend to fall in one spot so I just used the amount and worked with it. No double-dipping, lol.
