China Glaze Twinkle Collection for Holiday 2014: Swatches, review

Monday, November 3, 2014


It's that time of year again. It's hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner. In just a few weeks we will be stuffing ourselves with turkey. To celebrate the holidays China Glaze has released its holiday 2014 collection - Twinkle!

China Glaze® Twinkle features 11 new polishes and one effects top coat. I am going to show you six of them in this post. You can see the other six polishes here.

The formula on these polishes is great. I didn't have any issues. I did apply most of the glitter polishes over a base color though. That's just how I like them. There are some great polishes in this collection.

Let's take a look at the first half of this amazing, festive collection. 

Chillin’ with My Snow-mies is a special effect glitter polish. It has multi-sized white snowflake overlay glitters. The glitters rest flat against the nail. It did take a little bit of glitter placement though; but that's pretty common for larger glitters. But I love the way it looks over Tip Your Hat.

Dancing & Prancing is  multi-color and size glitter polish. This would be great on it's own with a few coats. But I chose to apply it over I'd Melt For You. It applied easily and there wasn't much fishing for glitter involved. This is two light coats with a top coat over I'd Melt For You.

De-Light is a holographic gold glitter. The glitter is fine and delicate. It looks super rich over Define Good... This is one coat on the tips over Define Good. I also applied  top coat.

Define Good… is a sultry, shimmery cranberry shade. I love the name of this one too. I can just picture me answering that question. "Have I been good? Well... Define Good..." The shimmer in this polish gives it an amazing dimension and depth. This is two coats with a top coat applied.

I’d Melt For You is a silver chrome that has me ecstatic. I have tried lots of chromes before and they are so difficult to deal with - they show every flaw on my nails. But this one is amazing. I applied three thin coats over my bare nail. And while it shows a few brush strokes - it works amazingly well. I also tried it with a top coat. The top coat dulled it a little. But it would be well worth it if you wanted it to last a little longer. The photos here though are shown without top coat. This will be a chrome I will wear many times. I hope China Glaze makes more shades with this finish. I had to take extra photos of this beauty.

This collection is on track and is inspired by vintage railway travel, the adventurous palette includes 12 new crèmes, shimmers and glitters, each filled with mystery and intrigue.

These shades are perfect for fall. The deep tones are pigment rich and the formulas are wonderful.

China Glaze Celebrate Courage Collection honors breast cancer awareness

Saturday, October 11, 2014


China Glaze has released the Celebrate Courage Collection. There are six nail polishes in this inspiring collection.

Celebrate Courage
This October, China Glaze honors the strength of all women affected by breast cancer with the new Celebrate Courage collection. This collection was inspired by the women who gracefully fight everyday and those that support them in their battle. The six-piece collection features three new matte crèmes and re-promotes of three classic bright pink shades.  

Breast Cancer Awareness Nail Art


Celebrate Courage also marks the launch of a new 0.5 fl oz bottle of China Glaze’s popular Matte Magic flat finish top coat. This was previously only available in 0.325 fl oz. The new 0.5 fl oz bottle will be available as part of the core China Glaze collection beginning in 2015. 
 
Let's take a look. We will start with the new releases.

Carpe Diem is an off-white polish with an extremely subtle tinge of lavender. The touch of lavender is very light. It appears off-white. Apply thin coats of this polish so you don't have leveling issues. I used three thin coats. I am going to show it to you matte, and with a glossy top coat. 

Here it is with a top coat.

Sheer Bliss is a soft off-white polish with a pink shimmer. The shimmer is obvious in real life. In photos, well... it likes to hide. I am only going to show this to you with a gloss top coat so you can see the shimmer. This is three thin coats with a glossy top coat. Apply thin coats of this polish so you don't have leveling issues.
