The China Glaze Twinkle Nail Polish collection for Holiday 2014 certainly touched on the red and green but also gave us an explosion of pretty glitters and a nice assortment of other colors just as festive as the usual shades.
Each nail polish was swatched using Cult Nails Get It On Perfecting Base Coat and China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat.
I'd Melt for You is a silver chrome. One coat made it opaque but 2 coats evened out the streaking enough to make it minimal. Remember, the less brushstrokes you do the better off you'll be.
Feeling Twinkly has a clear base with fine blue shimmer. One coat is shown over I'd Melt for You.
Tip Your Hat is a medium red cream. It's a beautiful shade and only required one coat for full opacity!
Pine-ing for Glitter has a clear base and a fine green glitter as well as slightly bigger (but still small) green glitters. One coat is shown over Tip Your Hat.
Define Good... is a beautiful metallic maroon with flashes of gold. The first pic shows it without flash, the second pic I had to use the flash to show off the shade. One coat.
De-light has a clear base but is loaded with gold glitter and holo bar glitter. So gorgeous! One coat shown over Define Good.
Out Like a Light is a deep grey cream. One coat.
Chillin' With My Snow-mies has a clear base and white hex glitters in all the sizes. It was hard to maneuver the pieces..the base is just too thick, but it looks really nice in the end and I'm a total sucker for the name. One coat shown over Out Like a Light.
No Peeking is a frosty grape. Two coats.
Dancing & Prancing has a clear base saturated with multi-colored glitters of all sizes. Like Chillin' With My Snowmies the base was thick and you had to maneuver and push to get glitter to apply evenly. One coat shown over No Peeking.
Meet Me Under the Stars has a sheer black base loaded with silver glitter. Three coats.
December to Remember is a frosty blue with hints of fuchsia and golds. Super pretty. It looked okay in two coats but I used three for the photo to be safe.
My favorites from this collection are Meet Me Under the Stars, December to Remember, Define Good..., Dancing & Prancing and Chillin' With My Snowmies (for the name).
