China Glaze Holiday Joy Collection Winter 2012 - Swatches and Review

It is coming faster than you could imagine and I can´t wait for it to be here...yes, Christmas! Having tried these beauties I am even more excited about this time of the year. As always China Glaze Holiday collections contain those classic colours such as red, green, gold and silver. We have cremes and glitter and I think there really is a lot to choose from. Here they are:

WINTER HOLLY

GLITTER ALL THE WAY

ANGEL WINGS

GLISTENING SNOW

BLUE BELLS RING

PIZZAZZ

MERRY BERRY

CRANBERRY SPLASH

RED SATIN

WITH LOVE

PURE JOY over CRANBERRY SPLASH

CHAMPAGNE KISSES

If you are looking for some classic holiday polishes then I am sure you should have a closer look at these. I am absolutely sure you will love at least one of the reds. Yes, they are nothing special, we have seen these before but they have a great formula and you must remember that not everybody has hundreds of polishes like some of us nail polish addicts too. I also like Blue Bells Ring, the perfect frosty blue, it shines so much! But what I love most about this collection are the glitters. I think I will really have a hard time choosing my mani for Christmas Eve...will it be a dark purple base with Glitter All The Way on top or maybe a red base with Pure Joy (sorry about the bad swatch)? The glitters will be perfect for layering. On my swatches I used them alone and these are three coats, still not perfect sometimes. O prefer to layer them.

Let me know what you think, can´t wait to hear your thoughts :)

  2. Aw! China Glaze usually has my favorite holiday collection, and I'm not overly compelled by any of these. More money for other things, I suppose...

  7. Do you think Pure Joy can be built up on it's own, or is it more of a layering polish?

  8. Usually it's hard to limit myself to only a couple of China Glaze's Holiday Polishes, but this year, it's going to be hard to motivate myself to get more than one or two. I'm sorry, but olive green does not say Merry Christmas to me....

  9. Gorgeous swatches.
    Is there any chance for you to compare Merry Berry and City Siren? I love how Merry Berry looks, but I'm afraid I already have too many similar reds.

  15. must have glitter all the way, reminds me a lot of rbl lovacore. And lately I am totally into red shimmers, so funny I am not a red nailpolish kinda girl :) Champagne kisses and bells ring also look stunning.
    Pizazz reminds me too much of happy b-day and the muppet glitter by opi, can't remember the name...uhoh polish overload I guess..

  17. Ooh, Love Glitter All The Way and Champagne Kisses! I'm meant to be on a no-buy but I can't see that lasting with all these holiday collections coming out! Great swatches :)

  18. The blue was boring, the same blue color we have seen the entire fall, but the glitters are wonderful, first time I prefer them to red polishes.

    Good swatches, I am an admirer of your work.

  19. Ty laky s glitry nemají chybu! Mně se moc líbí, ale nemám trpělivost to odlakovávat :D

  20. Red Satin, Cranberry Splash and maybe With Love catch my eye - but I am 100% sure I have others just like them but maybe not as good of formulas since many of my reds are older from the old 'Black Label' days. This is the first look (other then 1 glitter) I have seen of this holiday collection - thanks for the great swatches! Will be interesting to see some comparisons of these reds next to other older reds. I am sure they are out there - even thinking of some not too far back ChG reds I have that look super close esp the creams. I probably won't get any of them - but if I did not have so many polishes this would appeal to me.

  27. I cannot wait until Christmas. My little girl's first.

    These are fantastic colors. And the glitters just look so festive.

  28. I like red nail polish but it will not suit for all dresses. I used to wear silver glitter since it is a winter time now also it suits for all kind of dresses. I simply love it.

  29. Cool colours. Though the glittery ones are not for everyday use. It will be great to be used during X’mas time. Too bad I did not see these last month.
