My hands and feet always get cold quickly in the winter even if I feel warm everywhere else. (My dad used to always say, “Cold hands. Warm heart.”)
While I tend to feel chilly quite quickly, I remember my father being almost resistant to the plummeting temperature.
Honestly, even when the mercury dropped so low, he’d be wearing just a short-sleeve dress shirt under his winter coat and his hands would still be warm. The only time he ever wore long sleeves in the winter was if we were hit with the rare intense blizzard!
I always wish I could be like that. Instead, I have to bundle up when Old Man Winter pays a visit!
Today I’m sharing China Glaze Frostbite with you. It hails from the old Ski Collection, and it’s one of my favourite blues to wear.

China Glaze Frostbite Review
Frostbite by China Glaze is a vibrant medium blue that looks like it’s lit from within. What makes this hue stand out from many other blues is that it looks slick – very much like car paint, actually. It has this shimmer that helps the blue look lively, and it really pops on your skin in virtually every lighting.
This is a colour that’s bold and attention-getting, so those who are shy with their nail colours may be intimidated by it. But for those who love their wild colours, this one fits the bill nicely! I highly recommend it, even if you’re not normally a blue lover. (The colour is even more vivid in person than my photos would suggest!)
This is a shimmery polish.
Application & Formula
The interesting thing about Frostbite by China Glaze is that when you apply the first coat, it’s incredibly sheer. You may even start thinking that there’s no way that the opacity will improve much based on that first coat. But don’t worry – it builds up nicely. The second coat covers pretty well, but to really conceal all the bald patches, I suggest using 3 coats just to be on the safe side. Plus with 3 coats, the colour is super vibrant!
I found the formula very easy to apply because it’s very smooth. The downside, though, is that Frostbite (at least my bottle of it) is very watery, so you have to be careful not to flood your cuticles with this one.
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
When I wear a blue, I love it to be loud and scream at me. Frostbite by China Glaze hits the spot those days! I consider it a classic must-own shade.
Do you prefer softer blues over louder ones? What was the last blue polish you sported? Did you wear any other colours from the China Glaze Ski Collection?
