China Glaze Christmas – Be Merry


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!

    OOOh, I think I need to get me a set of these!!! I agree with the glitter removal – I kind of just tend to put that on my ring finger now as I can’t do with the hassle of removing it, never mind how fab it looks!!

    PS. Is there a way I can view this blog one one page and scroll down – rather than going to the front page and clicking each article?? I think it used to be like that, but didn’t know if there was something I could click to change the viewing?? (Lazy of me I know).

    I love China glaze and they always have at least one good christmas set out. Sure use the tin foil method to remove the glitter. Takes far less time and there is no hassle with it
