Usually I’m not festive with my nails but in an attempt to get into the holiday spirit (I was having such a hard time with that this year!), I wanted to show you my nails for last and for this week, both shades from the China Glaze ‘Tis the Season To Be Naughty and Nice Holiday collection. I reached for China Glaze’s Party Hearty for my Christmas mani. I wanted my nails look like a Christmas tree and the presents underneath the tree all at the same time. With three coats of Party Hearty, that’s what I had. This glitter nail polish was quite a hit with friends and family as well as out in the stores during all my last minute shopping… and it did make me a little bit cheerier.
This week’s mani is China Glaze’s Sugar Plums. I was tempted to go with one of the reds from the collection like Phat Santa but I decided to try out Sugar Plums instead. I’m not a big metallic shade gal but this plum with micro-glitter shade won me over at first pass, I’m really loving the way it looks on my nails. The finish is a little bumpy, as glitters typically are but a top coat helps reduce that a bit. I liked the formula a lot, thin enough to not get all goopy on me when I apply additional coats and it is was well pigmented. This will be the nail color I ring in the new year with.
How about you? What has been on your nails this holiday season?
