Last year my friend Laura bought me a set of China Glaze mini’s from the Christmas collection that I absolutely loved so I’d been eagerly awaiting the launch of the 2013 line and it did NOT disappoint! Last year it was all about red and gold but this year is so much more me – jewel toned pinks and purples and as always the names are super cute!
Left to right – Just Be-Claws / Santa Red My List / Put A Bow On It / Be Merry, Be Bright.
Forgive my messy swatches, I’m wearing an emerald green gel polish underneath – post to come. The two opaque metallic shades will get a lot of wear this upcoming festive season but my favourite of the bunch has to be the micro glitter, Put A Bow On It. I love me some purple nail polish! The chunky glitter will likely be the sidelined shade.. oh how I hate to remove glitter and this chunky stuff is the worst so it will be saved for only the special occasions 😉
I have some particular Christmas favourites I will bust out for a post soon but if you have any special loves for this time of year share them in the comments!
