China Glaze Mingle with Kringle is a blingtastic gold that I am absolutely crazy about! (It’s from the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection.)
There aren’t too many golds in my nail-polish collection, but the ones I have, I love!
Thanks to NailPolishCanada, I got to try this incredibly festive shade that I have been wearing for a full 7 days as of the time I’m preparing this blog post!
(That doesn’t usually happen because I’m the type of nailphile who typically changes my nail colour often. So, I hope it speaks volumes as to just how much I adore China Glaze Mingle with Kringle!)
My cuticles are a little stained from a red nail polish that I wore earlier. After a day of washing my hands, it went away, haha, but I just couldn’t wait that long to snap photos of this nail polish.
In real life, the red cuticles weren’t so obvious as when they’re blown up on the blog. And really, the gorgeous gold put such a huge smile on my face, I hardly noticed the stained cuticles when I wore it, so that’s all that matters to me!
China Glaze Just Be-Claws is another stunning shade from the Happy HoliGlaze Collection. (They’re really on a roll for this Christmas collection!)
If you liked the way OPI Underneath the Mistletoe looked, I think you’ll probably also adore China Glaze Just Be-Claws.
While they’re very different polishes (and you can certainly justify owning both), what makes them like cousins instead of sisters is how the glitter looks so sparkly, as though you’re gazing upon treasures at the bottom of the ocean.
This jewel-toned red is very luxurious, and I really loved wearing it!
Now that December is here, I’m getting more into the festive spirit with red nail polishes.
Well, I’ve worn several already, but I decided to blog about them this month, so it’s more timely. You can expect more holiday shades coming soon!
Are you getting your home all ready for the holidays? Or are you planning to pack your bags and head somewhere to visit family and friends?
I’ll be visiting my mom during the Christmas week, and I’ve taken time off work so that we can do more things during the day.
Since I usually just visit her once a week, it’s nice that I’ll be able to spend a longer time and consecutive days with her.
In today’s post, I’m showcasing China Glaze Elfin’ Around from the Happy HoliGlaze Collection, which is an interesting twist on the typical Christmas reds on the market during this time of year. It’s actually a reddish orange, but it can read red when you look at it solo and in some lighting conditions. (When I review traditional reds later this week, you’ll really be able to see the difference!)
Being a green lover, I was very excited to try out China Glaze This Is Tree-mendous from the Happy HoliGlaze Collection. The fact that it was also full of fine glitter was like the icing on the cake.
When I wore this, it was almost like I had green tinsel on my nails because no matter where I was, I could see them twinkle.
This is a very festive look, but I’d wear it again any time of year, not just around the holidays.
If it were a darker green, I think I’d fall more in love with it, but it’s still pretty, and I had lots of fun wearing it!
Guess what? I received some cool information in my inbox the other day that I had to share, especially because lots of my readers are very talented with nail art.
China Glaze is having a nail art contest from now until December 20th!
You’re eligible to participate if you reside in the United States, Canada (excluding Quebec), France, Mexico, or the United Kingdom.
All you have to do is upload a photo of your holiday manicure (lacquer only, no embellishments). There will be an online voting poll starting on December 15th and ending on the 31st.
Then, the 25 who score the highest will be judged by a panel of celebrity manicurists and bloggers!
The prizes are incredible!
- Grand Prize – $1,000 Visa Gift Card
- 2nd Prize – $500 Visa Gift Card
- 3rd Prize – $250 Visa Gift Card
- 22 Congratulations Winners – 12-piece China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection
Read on to see the official press release sent to me by China Glaze and to access the links for more details.
Will you be entering?
The China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection features a lot of festive shades to help dress your tips for the holidays.
In the Quick Look post I published a few days ago, I showed you the 6 shades from the collection that I’ll be reviewing in-depth.
The first one I just had to wear was China Glaze So Blue Without You.
It’s a vibrant blue with a foil-like metallic finish that really lights up your nails!
Here’s a sneak peek at what I plan to do full in-depth review on in future posts!
These are 6 of the 12 shades from the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection, which I’m pretty excited about. (They were generously provided to me by China Glaze.)
Aside from fall and Hallowe’en collections (they’re my favourites), Christmas ones come in at a close second!
If you’ve follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I already wore China Glaze So Blue Without You. I’ll probably review that one first from the bunch since I’ve already taken photos of my manicure.
Is there another shade that you’d like me to review before the others? Let me know, and I’ll put it near the top of my list!
