China Glaze Winter Holly

Hello my lovelies! The first day of vacation went great for me. I'm already done with the nail art for Monday and it came out great, so I'm sure you're gonna like it. But today I'm excited because I finally get to review a holiday polish that I've had for a few weeks. I love doing nail art, especially holiday themed, but reviewing polish is something I love and haven't had much time for lately. So let's see what we're looking at today.

Winter Holly is my only pick from this year's holiday collection from China Glaze. Don't get me wrong, I love this brand and I love their polishes. I just have a lot of similar polishes to the ones that came out this year. Of course Blue Bells Ring is on my wishlist, but we'll see about that one. I do love a good green for Christmas, and if it's a glitter, then I can't resist it. Plus I didn't have anything similar in my collection, so this was a must. I received this a few weeks ago and I immediately had to put it on. It's just that beautiful!

The polish consists of tiny green glitter, mixed with what appears to be gold glitter. Some of the little bits are holographic, which make the end result extra sparkly and pretty. The glitter is very dense, which makes it opaque in about 3 coats, in spite of the small size. It's easy to apply and spreads nicely on the nail. It dries to a matte finish, so top coat is a must to make it look glossy. I did 3 coats with Seche Vite on top for these pictures.

This is a great glitter, not only for the holidays, but for every season. As usual, China Glaze outdid themselves with the amazing formula on this one. I would say this is a green version of I'm Not Lion from the On Safari collection. These are great to have in one's collection because they can be worn both by themselves, as well as layered over different polishes. 

P.S. How do you like the new look of the blog? I decided to make it a bit wintery. What do you think?
