China Glaze Holiday 2013 HoliGlaze Collection Swatches: Mingle With Kringle and There's Snow One Like You

Mingle With Kringle (2 coats)

China Glaze There's Snow One Like You (2 coats)

The HoliGlaze collection is coming to a close soon and up first is Mingle With Kringle (love the name) and it's a deep gold with dark gold flakes throughout. The flakes are a bit hard to see, but they're there. Since it is a darker gold color, I like it better than the lighter ones since the lighter ones can clash with my skintone. The formula was a bit on the thin side, but nothing too difficult in 2 coats. 

And now we're on to There's Snow One Like You. If you thought Essie's Belugaria was bad, then you hadn't seen There's Snow One Like You. I like Belugaria so much better than this one. Both were hard to apply, but there was some depth added with the holographic glitter in Belugaria. China Glaze's version is white glitter in an extremely thick textured base. I really couldn't control where the polish was going to be honest. The texture and glitter was also sharp to the touch, so I took it off right after I swatched it. I usually like to give every polish a full day to be able to review it, but there's no way I could stand this. It's too bad because a white textured polish is novel. I would definitely skip this one.
