Just in time for the holidays, I have the China Glaze The Glam Finale Collection to share with you!
The China Glaze The Glam Finale Collection consists of 12 polishes with an assortment of finishes. There are also some key holiday colors covered here, so you get the serious Christmas and New Years vibe from it.
Let’s go ahead and jump right in, it’s been a busy few weeks and I’m squeezing this fab collection in on my lunch break. After work my son has a band performance so I’ll be home late!
China Glaze As Good As It Glitz
As Good As It Glitz didn’t photograph quite right for me. This is a lilac toned gold chromelike metallic. For some reason my camera didn’t want to pick up the lilac tones though.
I used 2 coats for these photos. Light brushstrokes are visible but overall it’s a smooth metal look.
China Glaze Big Hair & Bubbly
China Glaze Big Hair & Bubbly is gold glitter topper with small and micro hex glitters mixed in. I used 1 coat over New Year, New Boo (which you’ll see in a moment)
China Glaze New Year, New Boo
This might be my top pick from the collection. New Year, New Boo is a royal blue with a bit of shimmer in it. It’s actually a 1 coater. I did 1 coat and a glossy top coat for these photos.
I’m hoping to check out the stamping qualities on this one when I get a free moment!
China Glaze Disco Ball Drop
China Glaze Disco Ball Drop is a silver holographic mix of micro and small hex glitters in a clear base. I used 1 coat over The Perfect Holly Day (which you’ll see shortly) and a top coat.
China Glaze Don’t Be A Snow Flake
China Glaze Don’t Be A Snow Flake is a sheer light grey jelly base with silver holographic hex glitters in micro and small. It’s like China Glaze took Disco Ball Drop and put it in a sheer grey instead of a clear base. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
I’ll be honest, I’m torn on this one. I really like the idea of it, but by looking at the bottle I didn’t think it would be as sheer as it is. I think I would prefer it layered over a creme for more opacity. It’s a nice polish, just not what I was expecting.
China Glaze Queen of Sequins
China Glaze Queen Of Sequins is a deep red based violet with copper and purple shimmers mixed in. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
China Glaze Santa’s Side Chick
Santa’s Side Chick is a slightly berry tinged matte red with shimmer. I used 2 coats for these photos.
My photos are coming in a little warm for this shade, so it appears more red than it is in person. The berry tinge is more noticeable in person.
China Glaze Slay Bells Ring
Slay Bells Ring is a grey shimmery metallic. The gold flash you see is my lights reflecting. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
China Glaze Sparkle On
Sparkle On is a red jelly base with red hex glitters in small and micro mixed in. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
China Glaze Teal The Fever
Teal The Fever is a mix of blue, turquoise and green glitters in a clear base. I used 1 coat over Toast It Up for these photos.
China Glaze Toast It Up
China Glaze Toast It Up is a golden hued champagne shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
China Glaze The Perfect Holly Day
China Glaze The Perfect Holly Day is a deep pine green shimmery matte. It dried a little quick so it had streaks and some overlap areas. I used 2 coats for these photos.
China Glaze The Glam Finale Collection Overview
Overall I loved the color selection. You can tell at first glance that it is a holiday collection. I didn’t have too many issues, but I wish the mattes took just a touch longer to dry so I could get even coats without self leveling issues.
My Top Picks: New Year New Boo, Santa’s Side Chick, Queen Of Sequins and As Good As It Glitz
