Holiday Joy Collection: China Glaze 2012

China Glaze - Glitter All The Way Nail Polish - Holiday Joy 2012 Collection

The holidays are quickly approaching and the big nail polish brands are all coming out with their special collections and limited edition polishes.

China Glaze has a very pretty collection this year called “Holiday Joy”.  It is what you would expect, lots of reds and lots of glitzy glitters.  Here is a look at this years colour palette courtesy of chinaglaze.com


Merry Berry

Cranberry Splash

Red Satin

With Love

Pure Joy

Champagne Kisses

Winter Holly

Glitter All The Way

Angel Wings

Glistening Snow

Blue Bells Ring

Pizzazz

There were two nail lacquers I was especially excited to get my hands on from this collection.  Angel Wings being one and Glitter All The Way being the other.  I still might break down and pick up a couple more…Merry Berry and Winter Holly are both so pretty!  *sigh*

For now, I just have the two, but I thought I would share my swatches of them with you anyway.

Angel Wings is a clear base polish packed with gold micro glitters and holographic micro glitters dispersed throughout it.

It’s a really pretty polish!  This lacquer offers that insanely sparkly glitzy look that is perfect for the holiday season.  With Angel Wings you can expect mostly opaque coverage after two coats, but will need three if you want complete coverage.  Like most glitter polishes, it will dry gritty and grainy to the touch, so you will most likely want a top coat.

I had a bit of a hard time capturing its true look on camera, so I’ve included both a swatch without flash and one with flash:

Glitter All The Way quickly became one of my all-time favourite glitter polishes.  As you can see, it is super fun and uber colourful.  I had nothing even remotely like it in my collection.

This polish contains gold, red, purple and green glitters – all packed in a clear base.  The glitters themselves aren’t as fine as the ones in Angel Wings but they are by no means chunky or bulky.  Glitter All The Way will be opaque after 3 coats, or will serve as a very pretty top coat if you just want to add some glitz and glam to your already existing manicure (it looks very beautiful over any really dark polishes like black or vampy red).  I think it’s a perfect polish for this years holiday parties!

And for the sake of consistency I’m also sharing pictures of this one without flash and with flash:

Which polishes and new collections have you most excited this year?  What polish will you be wearing to your holiday parties?
