China Glaze Holiday Collection 2012

Hi girls!

First let’s get something out of the way. Lena, don’t read this post! Don’t even look at it! And don’t google the China Glaze Holiday collection. I mean it.

Lena is my friend, and we are exchanging Christmas gifts – or though we have decided Christmas might as well be in February, so we won’t feel too pressured to post the products, and the reason I am forbidding her to read it, is because I got one of the polishes, but I don’t want her to know, and as soon as she would see the polish, she would knew which one would be hers.

However, let’s try to jump straight to the review. Look at me, blogging about collections – who knew that time would come? 🙂 And even though I am being old news – look at those other beauty bloggers already blogging about Spring 2013 collections, I thought I would start by giving a proper reviews of the products I have mentioned in my year’s favorites posts. Since calendar is saying it is winter (doesn’t look so from the view outside though), I thought I would start off  by showing you this gorgeous collection. As told, I am not a collection addict – oh, well, I wasn’t – but if all China Glaze polishes are that good quality – I am afraid my shallow collection of 5 plus two making its way to me by the post is gonna expand rapidly after April, the first – yeah, you guessed it right, I am attempting beauty ban once again. I know, what you all are thinking, stop rambling, and get to the actual review. Well, I am trying!

So, up until the point where I acquired 2 glitters out of this collection, I didn’t even know there was something called layering glitter, which means, that it is opaque on it is own, and you don’t need any background color. My favorite is the Winter Holly, a very deep forest green, which has a perfect texture, and sparkling, light catching mini gold glitters, that all you can think about, is Christmas tree, once you have it on your nails.

If you do your accent nails in Glitter All the way, then you will unavoidably start thinking about Christmas lights on Christmas tree. I think China Glaze people have done amazing job by capturing Holiday spirit in this collection..

When there is an amazing blue. Funny story, I have gotten that for my friend Lena, and haven’t picked  it up for myself. I have put it aside, and have been looking at it for about two weeks, trying my best not to dig into it. In the end I did cave in, and got myself a copy, and oh man, how glad I am I did. It is a frosty blue, having a very nice grey shimmer to it in a bottle, but I am not sure it transfers to the nails. But even without the shimmers, it is still a gorgeous color.

My least favorite one is Pizzazz, nothing personal, I just haven’t find the right way of using it, I think. It is a little bit too transparent to layer, but a little bit too thick to have on the background, so I am not sure how can I make it show all its glory.

The quality of all those polishes is amazing, it holds for four and more days (that is, if I don’t use my Seche Vit top coat, which I am not friends with at all).

Okay, apparently I need to write more about nail polishes, because I just realized that I am a completely amateur at describing the colors, but if I were you, I would get out and pick up couple of polishes from the collection, while you still can, it is, after all, better to see it once than to hear about it ten times. So I will leave your decision up to you, and while you do so, you can look at the pictures above :). Which in no way reflects the real beauty of those polishes, so whatever you do, hurry up and get some for yourself.

And here they are on the nail wheel, which was even harder to photograph. Tell me what you think, should I attempt more nail polish related pictures/blog posts, or should I leave it to professional nail beauty focused bloggers ?
