China Glaze Holiday 2015 Cheers Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

I’m still pushing out posts and almost caught up after the Black Friday rush! Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving break and got some goodies. My spoiled little boy pretty much scored for Christmas and we got a great deal on an Xbox One bundle and a PS4 (saving that for his bday in February though) plus Nick will be building him a brand new computer to be able to play Minecraft a bit better. I bought a few things for myself as well, all polish of course.

Now onto today’s post. I have the China Glaze Holiday 2015 Cheers collection to share with you! I actually was very excited for this collection following their Fall 2015 The Great Outdoors collection (check it out if you missed it). There were a lot of hits in this collection for me and it definitely gets you into the holiday spirit.

Let’s take a look

Better Not Pout

Brand Sparkin’ New Year

So I’m still a little on the fence about this shade. I like the concept of it, but almost wish the jelly base wasn’t so sheer. You can layer it over a purple creme to fix it of course. But I do love the overall thought of this shade.

Brand Sparkin’ New Year is a sheer, deep purple jelly base backed with purple and silver holographic glitters. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Break The Ice is a silver holographic shred glitter top coat. I used 1 coat over China Glaze Mix and Mingle. I didn’t have application issues and got a nice amount of shred glitter for only 1 coat.

Bring On The Bubbly is a classic holographic gold hex glitter top coat. I used 1 coat over China Glaze Wine Down For What and a top coat. I got great glitter distribution with this one as well.

Coal Hands, Warm Hearts

Coal Hands, Warm Hearts is another jelly based shade in the collection. Again, I wish the base wasn’t so sheer, but it’s easily fixed with a black base color. This is a black jelly base filled with black glitters and silver holographic glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Don’t Get Elfed Up is a beautiful blacked teal base with teal shimmer that shifts to a beautiful purple. This was hard to capture but I took an extra photo or 2 to see if I could get it! I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

China Glaze Holiday 2015 Cheers Collection Overview

PicMonkey Collage 1

This is a holiday collection with a fairly classic look. Overall I do like more shades than I was just so so on. My only issue was that the jelly shades were just a little too sheer for my tastes, but as I said – that’s easily fixed with a base color to darken it up. Aside from that, I am happy to see them branching out in the last couple of collections. It was the duochromes in the Fall collection and now the jellies in this one, so while they weren’t totally for me, I am glad to see more aside from the traditional cremes and metallics of the holidays. Son Of A Nutcracker, Mix and Mingle and Don’t Get Elfed Up are my favorites of the collection.

I love all the glitter toppers here but I actually like the sheerness of Brand Sparkin New Year. It makes the polish stand out, IMO.
