I have the last polish I bought from China Glaze's Holiday Collection today, I'm not a big fan of red polishes but they're a must for the holiday season and I can always make an exception if it involves a jelly based glitter.
This polish reminds me of Ruby Pumps with the exception that it has different sized hex glitter, sadly I don't have my bottle of Ruby Pumps with me to make a comparison.
For the stamp I used Moyou London's Princess 12 plate.
I have another China Glaze Christmas polish to show you, this is Big Hair & Bubbly and as the name states, it's a champagne colored glitter mix. It has a clear base and different hex sizes mixed together.
Application was easy enough, this is one coat regular and another sponged. I added the blue stamp using the Moyou London Typography 03 plate.
I have another polish from China Glaze's Glam Finale Holiday collection, one of my favorite green polishes from all time is from a China Glaze Holiday collection so I was excited when I saw this one, I thought I might've found another fave. So far I like it, it dries matte which is not my finish of choice but once you add a top coat you can see all the pretty shimmer in it.
For the stamp I used Moyou London's Tropical 14 plate and Havana Pearl stamping polish.
I have the second polish from China glaze Glam Finale collection today, it's this gorgeous pewter metallic polish, it's looking move olive on the photos than it is on real life. I don't have anything like it in my collection and the formula is a dream, almost a one coater.
The only thing I had issues is coming up with a design to make it justice, so I went with a simple gray stamp from Moyou London's Africa 10 plate and their Silver Fox stamping polish (which I dropped on the carpet, and my worst nightmare became real, but that's another story...)
My favorite nail polish season is the holidays, there's always so many new collections with sparkling glitters and shimmery new colors that you just now you gotta have, so when I first say China Glaze's new Holiday collection called Glam Finale I jumped at the first opportunity and bought 6 out of the 12 shades.
The first one is Teal the Fever, a small hex teal glitter on a clear base, this is really packed with glitter so you can probably have full coverage with 3 coats. I used 1 coat and then sponged another coat for these pics.
The plate for this design is from What Up Nails B021 and the stamping polish is Moyou London Bora Bora.
I have another China Glaze color to show you today, been trying to catch up on old collections and colors that I might've missed. I remember seeing swatches of this polish all over instragram and thinking: I need it and I wasn't dissapointed.
For this mani I used the What's Up Nails B021 plate and Sephora Formula X Alchemy to "color" the leaves.
I'm excited that it's finally Friday so I can spend my weekend playing with the new China Glaze polishes for this year's holiday collection, I also, ordered a couple more I wanted from past collections like the one I'm going to show you today.
I don't really like brown nail polish or brown anything for that matter but this shade really caught my attention for all that sparkle and it's pretty suitable for the fall season. I added a creepy pumpkin stamp with the What's Up Nails B021 plate and 2 orange stamping polishes from Moyou London.
The second nail polish from China Glaze's My Little Pony collection that I have to show you is this pastel mint creme. It was fairly easy to apply, I used 3 coats for full coverage but I wish I added top coat cause I can see that it didn't level up in some parts. It is a great polish still.
I bought all of them at www.8ty8beauty.com for $3.25/ bottle

I did a little experiment with yesterday's nail polish, I've been looking at a lot of pretty rings on etsy made out of resin with gold flakes suspended inside and I though it would look amazing as a design on your nails.
For this mani I used China Glaze Cutie Mark The Spot as the base color, then I added some gold flakies from OPI The Man With The Golden Gun, I did a little bit of placing with a sponge as well cause I wasn't getting enough from the brush, then I added a coat of Essie Pen & Ink which is a jelly from their Silk Watercolor collection. I repeated the process one more time and added a final coat of flakies on top and voila!
I am now obsessed with how this looks and I want to try it in every color.
When I saw that China Glaze was doing a My Little Pony inspired collection I knew I needed them all, so for the next few days I'll be showing you the colors and some nail art I've done with them.
The first on the list is Where's the Party Canon At? It is a beautiful magenta jelly filled with small holographic hex glitter, this was a surprise since it's was opaque in 2 coats even though I used 3 to make sure I didn't have any bald spots. On to the pics:
