China Glaze Holiday 2013 HoliGlaze Collection Swatches "The Glitters": Be Merry, Be Bright and Your Present Required



China Glaze Be Merry, Be Bright (2 coats) over China Glaze Fade Into Hue (to be reviewed later)



China Glaze Your Present Required (2 coats) over Super Black Lacquers Guilty

You only have 10 hours before my giveaway ends! Definitely sign up because you still have a good chance of winning these 12 polishes. Good luck! 

I have the final 2 polishes from the HoliGlaze collection and they are both glitter toppers. They don't seem very "holiday-like" to me, so I guess they are supposed to be more for New Year's Eve. First is Be Merry, Be Bright which is a blue/purple and magenta glitter mix that doesn't seem very unique to me. It's fine, but nothing great. Your Present Required is much more exciting and is a multi-colored hexagonal glitter mix. I do wish they had other shapes in there, but beggars can't be choosers. Out of the 2, I would recommend Your Present Required. Both are fairly dense with glitter, but could be better. I used 2 coats so you could really get a sense of the glitters in the polishes. 

Overall, the collection was pretty good. I remember when China Glaze was the brand to go to for the holidays (remember Party Hearty which is still being duped?) and they seem to be going downhill a little bit. Their autumn collection was terrible, and now the holiday collection was "pretty good." I hope they revamp things in 2014 and really blow us away.

Yeah, CG has been having an off year. What the heck, their new crinkled chrome collection looks terrible. At least their halloween collection was nice :)
