China Glaze Holiday 2014 Twinkle Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Tonight I have the Holiday 2014 Collection from China Glaze to show you… the Twinkle Collection!  This is a nice collection with some classic shades as well as some nice glitters to jazz the cremes up!

We’ll take a look at the cremes, shimmers and metallics first, then we’ll look at the glitters.

December to Remember

December to Remember

December to Remember is a beautiful medium icy blue base loaded with pink and gold shimmer.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

I’d Melt For You

I'd Melt For You

I’d Melt For You is a silver chrome.  Like most chromes, this will show nail imperfections easily so I would recommend a ridge filling base coat if you have prominent ridges.  I don’t have super prominent ridges, so I didn’t have issues with it.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Overall this is a nice collection with a mix of glitters, shimmers and cremes.  I like that there is a mix of colors and not just reds and greens.  My top picks are Define Good…, Pine-ing For Glitter, Meet  Me Under The Stars and December To Remember.
