Happy Monday! Today I have the China Glaze Holiday Collection to share with you. So without further delay, here are the swatches.
Glitter All The Way
By far my favorite from the collection. A mix of multiple colors and various sizes of glitter. Very pretty for the Holiday but it reminds me of Mardis Gras. I used 3 thin coats.
A closer view.
Emerald green glitter with micro gold glitter accents. I used 2 coats.
I was less impressed with the next 3 glitters coming up (Angel Wings, Glistening Snow and Champange Kisses). They all had the same feel but different colors (gold, silver and champagne). I used 2 coats of Angel Wings, a golden holographic glitter in a gold base.
The silver version of Angel Wings. My least favorite of the 3. I used 2 coats.
This was my favorite of the 3. I'm not sure if its because it suits my skin tone the best, but I like it. I used 2 coats.
Red and gold microglitter with medium gold glitter throughout a clear base. Easy application. I used 1 layer over Cranberry Splash.
Another favorite from the collection. A combination of pink, silver, yellow, blue and green glitter. I used 1 coat over Blue Bells Ring.
Blue Bells Ring
I really love this icy blue. The silver in the base makes it look much lighter in the bottle, but it applies a shade or two darker. Extremely pretty! The application was also flawless. I used 1 coat.
My favorite from the collection of reds but probably an easy dupe. I used 3 coats.
My camera couldn't capture the foil highlights in this polish. Much prettier in person. I used 2 coats.
I kept thinking Red Satan instead of Satin, LOL. Three thin watery coats with a little visible nail line. Described as a pure red creme and I agree.
Bright orange-red creme with a great application. I used 2 coats.
Overall I think there's a little something for everyone in this collection. I really like the glitters but I could have done without so many red polishes. Most of the collection applied smoothly and needed only 2 coats. The holographic glitters dried matte but the shine was easily renewed with a top quick coat. My favorites from the collection are Glitter All The Way, Winter Holly, Blue Bells Ring and Pizzazz.
