China Glaze Holiday Joy...

The Holiday Joy collection from China Glaze offers an array of shimmering shiny finishes and colorful shades that are sure to please everyone's holiday palette.  From cremes to metallics to glitters and more, this collection will surely help keep those pesky winter blues at bay.  "Read More" for photos and to enjoy the rest of the review!

Application for this collection is good.  Three coats were used for most shades with the exceptions of Blue Bells Ring at one coat, Pure Joy at two coats, and Pizzazz at one coat over Blue Bells RingPure Joy and Pizzazz are both exact dupes of other shades out thereThe formula with the scattered holo glitters of this collection are the same as the scattered holo glitters from the On Safari collection.  Winter Holly dries fairly matte, while Angel Wings, Champagne Kisses, and Glistening Snow dry slightly matte.  No top coat was used for these photos.

  1. Beautiful shades. The berry one is amazing :)

    Heel in Mint

  2. I ordered 3 of these and cannot wait to receive them! Great swatches :)

  3. I am such a sucker for Holiday collections. I also fall for polishes like Pizzazz way to easily... I might have a problem - haha! Thanks for the beautiful swatches! :)

    1. Me too!! You are not alone lol!! Thank you!

  4. Love Blue Bells Ring! So gorgeous!

  5. Doesn't Champagne Kisses look a lot like a polish from the On Safari collection?

    1. It does...its a shade darker than I'm Not Lion but lighter than I Heard That. Its falls perfectly in the middle of those two shades and would work well for a glitter ombre mani :)

  6. Merry Berry is calling my name... :)

    Great review!


    1. I hope you are able to pick it up! Thank you!

  7. This is a beautiful and festive collection! I definitely have a few I must get from the set. :-)
