Ok lovely readers - here's my attempt to get back into the blogging game! I've been gone a while, and I think I just needed a break. But I just have to share this new China Glaze collection with you! This is the Seas and Greetings collection - a not-so-traditional set of polishes, inspired by a cozy seaside holiday! What a refreshing take on a winter holiday collection!
Sand in my Mistletoes is a peachy nuse with the creamiest formula! I absolutely love this one. This one is great in 2 coats, but it could have a tendency to get thick if you don't watch it. I used thin coats.
Good Tide-ings is a one-coater! This blued-out lavendar is perfect in 1 coat. No issues at all. I actually wore this shade for several days and received multiple compliments.
Tis the Sea-sun is a bright coral creme that really pops! This is definitely one of my favorite in this collection. I used 2 thin coats for what's pictured.
Warm Wishes is a deeper pink, a shade I sometimes refer to as "Barbie Pink." The formula is pretty good for this creme, and it's really nice in 2 coats.
Eat, Pink, Be Merry has the slightest shimmer! This light rosy pink is pretty, but it's not a shade I'd normally wear. I can see it being used in nail art tho!
Snow Way is another of my favorites - it's got such a hidden depth in that shimmer. The iridescent base is off-set by the shimmer, which in my photos looks orange-ish. The formula is so great! I only needed 2 coats for what's pictured.
Seas and Greetings is really eye-catching! The namesake of this collection is an iridescent purple shade that is a little on the thin side. But as long as you watch what you're doing, it turns out great! I used 3 very thin coats for what's pictured.
Joy to the Waves is frosty! Not really in the formula, but it looks frosty. It's actually just a very intense silverish shimmer in this calm, serene blue.
The More The Berrier is another one-coater! This metallic raspberry shade is really pretty, but it's not very unique. I do have others like this in my collection. The formula is pretty good, tho. Sometimes metallics tend to go wonky, but not this one!
Twinke Twinkle Little Starfish is one of a kind! I don't think I own anything like this. It's a holo with a greenish gold sheen - not typical silver. I had a lot of fun wearing this under different lights. It just looks so cool! The only downside is it's got a very thin formula, so you have to watch when applying it. I used 3 thin coats for what's pictured.
Let's Shell-ebrate is a burst of purple and gold confetti-type glitter, and it's packed in a clear base. I only used 2 coats for what's pictured. It could be used over a base color with, maybe, 1 coat - or it would be really nice sponged over a base!
Patridge in a Palm Tree, how I wanted to like you! This gorgeous aqua matte should have been at the top of my list, but perhaps we got off on the wrong foot. It dries SUPER FAST, so maybe I wasn't prepared. It was hard to maneuver, and as you can see from my photo, it started cracking :( Maybe I just need to try again. But I did try twice, and maybe we're just not compatible...
My favorites are Tis the Sea-sun and Snow Way, if I have to pick 2. You can find these wherever China Glaze polishes are sold - I know they are out and on display at Sally's and Ulta. Price varies by vendor. You can get them online in various places, as well, such as 8ty8Beauty and Head2ToeBeauty.
