First is Define Good... which is a great name haha. This is a shiny ruby cranberryish red with luster shimmer. It has an incredibly opaque formula, it's thick but in a good way. This is two coats, however you could definitely get away with one.
Next we have Out Like A Light, a deep slightly muted grey crème. This is kind of a dark mud color, like deep grey clay mud. It's got an easy to use formula, thin but not overly so. It was opaque in one coat, I've shown you two here.
This guy is called December to Remember. It's a lighter wintery icy blue shimmer with pink microglimmers and foil flecks that turn it duochromey in lower lights. I couldn't get a great shade photo for you but my friend Jen caught some great ones, check out her post here. This is a tad brushstrokey. Two coats.
Speaking of brushstrokes, haha ;) here we have I'd Melt For You. It's a chrome silver that is pretty dope. It almost rivals OPI Push & Shove in it's chromeness, but it's not quite as smooth and reflective as that one. The brushstrokes aren't really that bad in person, don't be scared of it. If you apply it with a light floaty stroke, you'll have no issues. One coat!
This is Tip Your Hat, a medium red crème. This applied so easily and it was opaque in one coat. I used two here because I just do that with crèmes I guess. You might be saying, yawn another red, but c'mon. It's probably the most popular shade of polish in the world, and it is a holiday collection, of course there's a red in it. And as far as reds go, it's pretty great!
Here we have No Peeking!, a greyed icy grape frosty shimmer. This is definitely a frost, but if you are careful with application it looks more like a shimmer. It has similar application to Define Good... but it's thinner and a little easier. I used two coats, but it's opaque in one. Do I sound like a broken record? If so, that's a record I'd like to buy haha.
Meet Me Under The Stars is a black jelly with a slight blue tint filled with tiny silver and black glitters. This is SO pretty! It seriously does look like a sky filled with stars. Excellent formula and easy to use, not thick or gummy. Two coats.
This is a fun one, Chillin' With My Snow-mies! It has a clear base with different sizes of matte white hex glitters. It's like falling snow! Unfortunately there is a LOT of clear base, most likely to keep the glitter from sinking, but unfortunately that means fishing for glitter. I placed the glitter by dabbing it on with my brush, trying not to get so much base on my nail, but you can still see the bubbles where it got thick. I have to say though that I almost don't care because this turned out quite pretty haha. I used one "coat" over Define Good...
Here we have a bright blue micro glitter called Feeling Twinkly. I put it on top of December to Remember. It has great coverage for a microglitter, but I think it would be difficult to get opaque on its own. This is two coats. Dries a little satiny so use a topcoat for maximum shine.
This party animal is called Dancing & Prancing, a clear base filled with muted multicolored foily glitters. This is a nice change up from the usual rainbow glitter mixes we've seen before. Excellent glitter payoff in one coat, seen here over No Peeking!
Next is Pine-ing For Glitter, an emerald tealish green glitter. It has the same itty-bitty microglitters as Feeling Twinkly and also two sizes of hexes which gives it have more dimension. You get a good amount of glitter on with one coat, which I layered over Tip Your Hat.
And last we have De-Light, a light yellowy gold glitter mix in a clear base. It has holographic bar glitter in it too! Yay for this! It is totally a New Year's Eve type of glitter and I love it. Amazing and dense, this is only one coat over Out Like a Light.
I have to admit I wasn't super excited for this collection when I first saw it, but I am seriously impressed with all the great opaque formulas and fun glitters! I don't know if I've ever seen this many one-coaters in a China Glaze collection! My faves are No Peeking!, De-Light, and Meet Me Under the Stars. Tell me which are your favs! Did you pick any of these up? You might still be able to find these at your Sally Beauty Supply or Ulta stores, they may even be on clearance now.
Thanks for taking a trip back to the holidays with me today!
