First up is China Glaze Put A Bow On It!
China Glaze Put A Bow On It is a clear base polish densely filled with micro magenta glitters!
I used 1 coat on my pinky finger to show how fine & dense the glitters are! For the rest of my fingers, I had about 3 coats on to cover all the bald spots.
Application is smooth, but it's really hard to fill up the sides & the nail tip areas. I guess one of the solution for this is to apply a base color that's really close to China Glaze Put A Bow On It?
Really sparkly & christmas-y in actual! Pretty!
China Glaze This Is Tree-Mendous:
China Glaze This Is Tree-Mendous is a clear base polish densely filled with green & gold micro glitters.
1 coat on Pinky finger, about 3 coats on the rest of the fingers. Actual color in real life is a little more lime. I think it's quite close to the colour of Pine Trees?
I'm a sucker for glitters like these. :) Majority of the glitters are green with some gold for extra bling and christmas spirit.
Sparkling prettily under the light!
China Glaze All Wrapped Up
China Glaze All Wrapped Up is a clear base polish densely filled with violet blue micro glitters. My fingers would look a little green in the pictures as I had to edit the colours a little with some photo apps. This is one of the colours that my camera can never capture correctly.
1 coat on Pinky finger, about 3 coats on the rest of the fingers. I have tried to make the colours as close as possible to what I see on my fingers.. might still be slightly different though.. The polish looked more purple in the bottle, but more blue on the nails.
The formula is similar to the previous 2 polishes, but slightly easier to control on the edges.
China Glaze All Wrapped Up reminds me of 1 of the glitter polish from L.A. Girl. I'll probably do a comparison post soon!
Next, China Glaze Bells Will Be Blinging
China Glaze Bells Will Be Blinging is filled with some small + slightly larger blue hex glitters, gold holographic hex glitters, and some short holographic bar glitters. And densely packed glitter.
A close up shot on 1 coat of China Glaze Bells Will Be Blinging. I really like these half length bar glitters from this polish! They dont look or feel hairy unlike some of those previously released, and they actually look really pretty!
Super gorgeous & sparkly! I think I have about 3-4 coats on for the 3 fingers though. Application is easy and it's not hard to fish the glitters at all. China Glaze do have great formulas for their glitters.
Lastly, a bottle shot!
Next, China Glaze Be Merry, Be Bright:
Unlike the previous 4 in this collection, China Glaze Be Merry, Be Bright meant more as a topper than to be used on it's own. China Glaze Be Merry, Be Bright is filled with smaller magenta and violet hex glitters + some larger violet hex glitters in a clear base.
1 coat on the pinky finger, and about 4-5 coats on the rest. I didnt use any base as I suck at pairing some times and I dont want to ruin this polish. =P
The blue looking glitters are actually more violet in real life, very similar to China Glaze All Wrapped Up.
Last of the glitters, China Glaze Your Present Required
China Glaze Your Present Required is filled with multi-coloured, multi-sized glitters in a clear. Also meant to be a topper glitter polish. I can see white, gold, silver, green, blue and magenta coloured glitters.
I like how this polish looked on it's own without any base! It looked so cheerful that I felt happy just looking at it. My boyfriend thinks it look kiddy and childish though.. pfft! boys.. what do they understand.
Super gorgeous! I doubt I'll ever find a base color suitable for it though.. there's so many colours here!
Last of all!! China Glaze Travel in Color
China Glaze Travel in Color is a top coat that creates an iridescent-like effect when applied over any polish colour. Note that Travel in Color is not your normal sized China Glaze though.. it's the mini size 9.6ml bottle.
In my pictures, I'll have 2 fingers of the same polish. 1 with Travel In Colour, the other 1 without. Here I have China Glaze Santa Red My List and China Glaze So Blue Without You.
These are the 2 foil polishes in the Happy HoliGlaze collection. Iridescent effect is more obvious in real life, though it's barely there as well.
Here I have OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips and China Glaze Pelican Gray. Iridescent effect is actually more obvious than on the foil polishes above, but you cant see it as it's super hard to capture on photo. :(
To be honest, the Iridescent effect of China Glaze Travel in Color is not as great as I anticipated, but I guess I didnt really experiment with much colours as well so it might actually look great when paired with some particular colours.
One thing for sure, it doesnt go well with foil blues. -.-"
Okay! It's late now and I need to go sleep.
If you ladies are interest, all the polishes from the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze collection are now available at http://PolishAlley.com!
Good Night! I'll probably do a comparison post next!
