China Glaze 'Tis The Season To Be Naughty And Nice Holiday 2010 Collection - Swatches and Review

China Glaze has a HUGE collection of sixteen polishes for us for this Holiday! I was very excited about the collection and I am so happy I got the opportunity to try these out :) Now I want Christmas to be here. I already started shopping presents and having these babies at home makes me feel Christmas is coming. I am sure you are also curious, so here are my swatches:

The swatches are all without a base or top coat and are in natural daylight (no sun or lightbox).

FROSTY
This makes you think your nails are frozen. Love the way it looks. It is interesting and work safe at once :) This was three coats and I am sure it will be fun for layering.

MISTLETOE KISSES
I am not sure if I like it or not but I know there are a lot of green lovers out there that will love this polish. Two coats.

RUBY DEER
I am wearing red a lot lately and what holiday collection would it be without that perfect red? This is very nice, two coats. If you want to be sexy for Christmas you should wear Ruby Red!
edit: here is my comparison with this polish.

LITTLE DRUMMER BOY
Dark blue but not too dark to look black. This is amazing, it is a one coater and applies like a dream. One of my favourites!

MRS. CLAUS
I like the idea of pink glitter but I don´t like this specific pink. But I am sure it will be a great polish for those christmas parties or for layering. Two coats.

MIDNIGHT KISS
Amazing golden foil. Other brands also have these but there is never enough gold for Christmas! Two coats.
edit: here is my comparison with this polish.

SNOW
White creme. Not the best I have tried but one of the better. You have to be careful, this polish is watery and apply thinner coats. I managed to get this nice in two coats which is great I think.

PARTY HEARTY
Possibly the best polish from the whole collection! You just have to get this one, it is a must have. I am showing you one coat over Snow but I will do a special post about this polish over different colors. The great thing is that the glitter spreads evenly. I love it!

JOLLY HOLLY
Another favourite. A perfect christmas green! Covers in one thicker coat.

JINGLE BELLS
The second gold of this collection. You can see some brushstrokes but they were not so visible IRL. Two coats.

PHAT SANTA
Another beautiful creme red. It is a bit darker than Ruby Red and again two coats.
edit: here is my comparison with this polish.

CHEERS TO YOU
Silver foil. Loved this polish and I can´t wait to try it with Party Hearty on top :) Two coats.

SUGAR PLUMS
This really looks like sugar has been added to the polish :) Can´t wait to wear this as a full mani. One thicker coat.

PEACE ON EARTH
This doesn´t look much like a holiday color to me but it is beautiful! Two coats.

NAUGHTY AND NICE
Very dark vampy purple. Not very unique but again it can look amazing with Party Hearty on top. Will try that! Two coats.

MOMMY KISSING SANTA
Nice deep ruby red, I like the shimmer. This was two coats again. Reminds me of some of the polishes from the Retro Diva Collection, must make a comparison soon :)
So this is it! Sixteen polishes...wow, I have never before reviewed such a huge collection. The great thing is that everybody gets to choose what they like. Glitter lovers and creme lovers, we have work safe polishes and some really crazy ones too. I found at least four polishes that are absolutely amazing and I like the rest too. There isn´t a polish that would be a dissapointment. Another great thing was the application. I didn´t have probles with them, although Snow was a bit watery. The color choise is all you can wish from a Holiday collection. All the classic colors are here :)
These also come in super sweet sets and I am sure every girl would love to find these under the christmas tree.
Now let me know what do you think? Which ones are you going to get? And I am not talking about Party Hearty...you MUST have that one :)
* the product(s) in this post were sent to me by the manufacturer or their PR company.

  3. Mně se moc líbí Frosty. Opravdu dokonalá barvička.
    Fialí, má cenu tě ještě chválit za perfektní nalakování? Asi ne, ale přesto chválím. :o)

  4. Camy: thank you, they really are pretty.

    Akuma Kanji: thanks! Glad I could help with my swatches.

    Veru: děkuju :) zrovna tady mám pocit, že s lakováním mám rezervy, těch laků bylo opravdu hodně.

  5. I think I'll pass this one, not my kinds of color!

    Party Hearty is most interesting - it's like a christmas tree with red lights. :D Great swatches!

  6. Yay! I like your review very honest, and great pics as always! ;).
    I don't own any from the Retro Diva Collection, can't wait for the comparison of Mommy kissing Santa.

    thank you for posting, I can update my bday wishlist woo hooo hehe ;)

  8. Mommy Kissing Santa looks kinda like OPIs Diva of Geneva - at least in these pictures. Could you do a comparison?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I already picked up Peace on Earth, Mistletoe Kisses, Mrs. Claus, Frosty, and of course Party Hearty. I'm in LOVE! I adore this collection! Great swatches, they are flawless!

  11. I see some real stand outs in this holiday collection!

  12. Mám na cestě Frosty, Sugar Plum a Little Drummer Boy, ale zvažuju nákup i dalších odstínů, je to moc hezká kolekce a na tvých fotkách všechny laky vypadají neodolatelně :-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Tak mě s líbí frosty a little drumme boy (zdá se být tím, co sliboval Chanel Blue satin)a peace of earth a party hearty a ruby deer a phat santa a jdu si dát studenou sprchu, protože zase jednou chi všechny (dobrá, tři nechci, ale zbytek jo).

  14. I'm really excied about this collection! I just ordered Party Hearty, Phat Santa, Jolly Holly, and Mistletoe Kisses. After see our swatches though I now want Midnight Kisses and Peace on Earth. Ahh poor wallet. Thanks for the great swatches!

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a collection,you are right,it makes you feel like Christmas is already here:) My favourites are Cheers to you,Snow and Phat Santa (Oh well,I love them all)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Nevím, asi prostě Chinu moc nemusím, ale ani tvoje fotky mě nepřesvědčily (a to je jako faaaakt co říct)...mám pocit, že China už si svých pár min slávy užila na VV kolekci, která se mi osobně líbí víc než podzimní švýcarská OPI, ale tahle vánoční se mi nelíbí vůbec. Prostě asi OPI je OPI, poznání, ke kterýmu se stále vracím :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I want this collection so badly but alas I cannot buy them just yet.

    My favourite is definitely Peace On Earth and I also love Little Drummer Boy and Jolly Holly. Party Hearty is very interesting too!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love all of these! Frosty is a color that I would never pick out in the store, but your swatches look really nice.

  20. Gorgeous swatches!

    I'm thinking I'm gonna need Party Hearty (of course), Frosty, Sugar Plums, Peace on Earth, Midnight Kisses, Cheers to You and possibly Jolly Holly. :)

    Add to that stuff from other companies' Christmas Collections, and come Christmas Eve I'm going to wear no polish at all because I won't be able to choose between all the pretties!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love them all! I neeeed party hearty... Your swatches are so pretty :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Party Hearty mám na cestě :-)
    Máš to krááásně nafoceno :-).
    A už jsi přemýšlela, jakou barvu si dáš přímo na Vánoce? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lisa: there are!

    viennettka: no já myslím, že by se ti jich určitě líbilo víc. Ta kolekce na mě prostě dýchá Vánoce a mě se to moc líbí.

    Day: :D prostě všechno...no za chvíli si je budeš moct vyzkoušet, tak jsem zvědavá, co na ně řekneš.

    Varnish Vixen: so glad I could help!

    Mimi: I will really have a hard time picking my polish for Christmas.

    Dashulka: to je právě na lacích to super, že si můžeš vybrat mezi milion značkama a neboj, i OPI Burlesque tady brzo bude, tak se těš :)

    Danielle: great choice, I am sure you will love them.

    Zara: might look boring in the bottle, but on the nails it is very pretty!

    Ingrid: thanks!

    mylittlevanities: I have it the same, I think that Holiday collections are the best and I am alsways looking forward to them! We have some reall preties this year.

    Lois: thank you, so glad to hear that!

    Markett: to je dobře, je opravdu úžasný! Přímo na Vánoce? No přemýšlela a asi to bude nějaká červená krémovka a Party Hearty na to :) Ale určitě budu všechny vánoční barvičky nosit celý prosinec :D jo a moc děkuju za pochvalu.

  24. Arguably the best swatching post I have ever read! Your nails! Your photos!
    So much gorgeousness!
    I only got the glitters and the foil gold, but now I kind of want the other two greens and a red and that sugared one!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great swatching! Mistletoe Kisses is hot, I like! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I know I'll be getting Frosty, Mrs Claus, Party Hearty and Sugar Plum! There are some beautiful colors in this collection. I probably missed it, but was it mentioned when it would come out? :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Paillette: wow! Thank you so much *blushing*

    Tiffany: it should be already available in some places.

  30. Love the collection! :)
    Do you know if Snow behaves better than White on White? I heardSnow is more opaque than WOW... I own WOW and I was wondering...

    ReplyDelete
  31. MQ: I don´t have that one to compare, I have just one more creme white and that is a Misa. But I like snow, I think you can go with two coats if you apply carefully.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ahojky, moc děkuji za krásné fotečky, díky nim jsem neodolala a nakoupila 7 kousků. Jsou vážně super, jen se chci zeptat: Jak odlakováváš Party Hearty? Měla jsem jej na Jolly Holly a odlakovat jej byl opravdu kumšt :-)

  33. Ahoj Petro :) jsem ráda, že se ti laky líbí i naživo. Party Hearty odlakuju stejně jako všechny ostatní glitry foil metodou. Mrkni na to tady: http://www.all-you-desire.com/2010/08/removing-glitter-polish-foil-method.html

  36. Oh, could you help me? I'm looking for white cream. I want to wear it only in two coats. You have said that CG is not the best. What is the best in your opinion?

    ReplyDelete
  37. pchelka217: try this one :) http://www.all-you-desire.com/2010/06/misa-heaven-white.html

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks a lot. I've add this one in my wishlist:) And what do you think about OPI Alpine snow? Is it not very good?

    ReplyDelete
  39. pchelka217: I don´t have any white OPI, so I can´t say. Wish I could help..
