Jingle bells…jingle bells! Yes, it’s getting close to that time of year again and China Glaze is here to celebrate the season in style with our 2010 Holiday Promotions! Complete with 16 fun colors that will be sure to spice up your hands and feet for the celebratory season. Here’s some photos and in depth descriptions of the first 8 colors!
First off is China Glaze Jingle Bells. This is a nudish champagne shimmer that would be complimentary on any skin tone. Application is very smooth and that’s needed is 2 coats to get full coverage. I topped this off with a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry to add extra shine.
Second, we have China Glaze Cheers To You. This is a bright, shimmery silver that reminds me of Christmas tinsel. Application is smooth and two coats is needed as well for desired coverage. What amazed me about all the shimmers was how smoothly they went on, because shimmers can sometimes be a little chunky and goopy.
Third, we have China Glaze Snow. This is a creamy, dense and smooth white polish. I absolutely love it! I think it’s something about the texture. China Glaze Snow is thick without being gloopy and all I needed was two coats of this to make it perfect. I probably wouldn’t wear this alone, but it would be great for French manicures and pedicures, along with being a base color for layering. I know it’s just a white polish, but I really liked this one, a lot! The formula is hands down, amazing.
Next up is China Glaze Peace on Earth. This is an olive-toned green shimmer. This is two coats of polish with a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry on top. This color is so unique, especially for the Holidays and I’m glad that it was included in the promotion because it’s not a typical “Holiday” green. I was never a huge fan of green polishes until recently and now I can’t get enough! Olive green, lime green, slime green…I’m loving them all!
Here we have China Glaze Frosty. This is a sheer, shimmery white that’s perfect in layers. This has an amazing texture as well and took me three coats for the desired coverage. A lot of you on Twitter were asking me how this compares to China Glaze White-Kwik-Silver from the 2007 Surf Collection. I’ll be sure to swatch both and let everyone know how it turns out!
Next is China Glaze Party Hearty. This has a clear polish base with flecks of green, gold and red glitter. The red glitter is the largest and then the green and gold, respectively. Shown below is 3 coats in the photo below. You can definitely wear this alone, but I think it would look amazing as a top coat. I actually layered this over China Glaze Peace on Earth awhile back and it looked great!
Last, we have China Glaze Naughty or Nice. This is a deep, dark burgundy shade. It is so gorgeous and very dark, almost black. Show below is three coats with a swipe of Seche Vite Fast Dry on top. China Glaze Naughty and Nice was the first color I decided to swatch. I had the intention of taking it off and swatching more colors afterward, but once I put it on, I couldn’t take it off! It’s so gorgeous, I totally fell in love with it! It’s definitely one of my favorite Holiday colors.
The 2010 Holiday promotion will be available starting at the end of October. Which ones are your favorites and what will you be picking up?
