Hey There Polished People!
Ever since Cynthia mentioned it in a post a while back, I’ve been thinking about the fact that there are some people in this world who think blue or green or black or purple or anything but red or pink nails are weird!! You know what’s weird for me? Red or pink nails!! Haha. I really never buy any red or pink polish, I never paint my nails those colors and to buy or use those colors just never occurs to me. It’s not even that I don’t like those colors, because I like all colors, but I just always find something that interests me more. I’ve been thinking about branching out and getting some dark dark red/burgundys but you can believe that when you see it! 😉 My dad used to HATE it when I wore any kind of nail polish besides clear when I was younger. Then eventually I got him to like pink, but he never liked red. Well now I think I’ve bombarded him with so many different colors and designs that he’s not even phased by chartreuse 🙂 Yayyyy Dad! I bet he’d even like today’s nails, but I didn’t get over there to show him. I’ll keep you posted on that in the future. 😉 Let’s see if you like them! I may reach through the computer and give you a little slap if you say no… you’ve been warned!
China Glaze Winter Holly
China Glaze Winter Holly is a pretty mix of dark and lighter green matte glitter along with a noticeable but sparse gold sparkly glitter. If you leave this with no top coat it’s the prettiest sandy textured matte glitter. It looks awesome. The pictures don’t really capture it but when I applied it I couldn’t even bear to add top coat. I wore them matte for the rest of the night until the next day when I added the Seche Vite. This polish captures Christmas completely. I LOVE IT!!
I chose to use ChG Unpredictable as undies for this polish just because then my tips were wrapped all neatly but you can definitely wear this alone. It’s opaque in three coats and dries to a slightly coarse but smooth sandy finish without top coat. I kept rubbing the back of my thumbnail against my bottom lip because it felt so soft and sandy. With 2 coats of top coat it’s glassy smooth, but you’ll definitely need 2 coats cuz this stuff is top coat eater! If you didn’t read “top coat eater” like Hall and Oates sing “man eater” well then.. shame on you.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
YES PLEASE!!! Please do yourself a favor and go get it right now. I forgive you for not reading the rest of this just go!!! Go Go Go Go Go! It’s that good. It’s awesome matte, it’s awesome shiny… Get it.
So… how do you like it best- top coat or no top coat? I bet most people are going to say they prefer it shiny but I bet if you all could see it matte with no top coat in person, I think you MIGHT change your mind. 😉 Weigh in in the comments below! Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
