China Glaze Holiday 2011: Holly-Day and Snow Globe


Can you believe holiday items are out already? It seems like they start creeping up earlier and earlier every year. I haven't even gotten around to swatching/using the one Halloween polish I picked up (OPI Zom-Body-to-Love)... Anyhow, I decided to snag the two out of twelve that caught my eye before they were gone.

China Glaze Holly-Day

For a holiday collection this is a pretty uninspired deep green cream, but for a green lover with a gap in their collection it is perfect. I realized a few weeks ago while shopping my stash, that I didn't have a good deep green. Holly-Day fits the bill. The shade is a deep, almost hunter green and is so gorgeous. Even without top coat it was super shiny and glossy. The photos shown are two thin coats.

China Glaze Snow Globe

When I first saw the glitters in this collection I wasn't too interested in any of them until I saw Snow Globe swatched. OMG. I love how the glitter in it reflects in pastel shades and really will look snowy on a light base. I swatched it on Holly-Day since that is what I had on my nails, but I am very excited to try it on Revlon Matte Suede Powder Puff. As I mentioned, Snow Globe is a clear base packed with iridescent, pastel hued glitter. It was a total breeze to apply as well, no fighting required! The photos above are one coat.

The photo above shows the entirety of the collection, just in case you've been living under a rock with limited bandwidth connection :D

Have you picked up any holiday polishes yet?
