China Glaze Happy Holi Glaze Collection part 1



Hello there Everyone!
So Christmas has past us and the new year has begun, and unfortunately the Christmas collection I was looking forward to the most only arrived here this week. I ordered in the black Friday sales but post to Australia seems to take FOREVER, so I only just got my China Glaze Happy Holi Glaze collection.

This Collection from China Glaze was the most excited I got from anything they released this year! China Glaze just seemed to have some very Blagh collections these past 12 months and honestly I did not buy many, which is weird as I love China Glaze as a brand. But I have to say I was not disappointed with this collection.

I have broken the collection into 4 groups. Today i am going to be sharing with you the Reds and the white texture polish.

*All polish purchased by me.

Just be-claws-Is a very bright shimmery red polish. I really liked this red as it just screamed santa's coat! My camera did not like it so much as it wanted to blow out the pics. I used 2 coats for the pic with a clear top coat.




Santa red my list- This is a  red foil with silver undertones, which if you do a good coat is a one coater. I'm not usually a red gal but i really liked this red polish.




There's snow one like you- Ok. So there was a lot of chatter when this was released. From talks of bird poo nails to vomit nails. Not many people seemed to like it, and I was even considering to give it a miss too after seeing the pics. But i'm glad I brought it!. I will never wear it as a mani by itself but this polish is great for nail art!. The white is a bright white, and the texture is not that bad. I did 2 coats by itself. The first coat went on smoothly but the second coat was a lot harder to apply. The polish seemed to catch on the texture of the previous coat and the polish just did not want to go on, so I ended up dabbing the polish on for the second coat. Having said that in future is I want to use this as a polish by itself  I will do a white base coat first so I only have to put on one coat. The other little treat I found with this polish was that the white glitter in this polish is UV reactive so under a UV light the polish has this great polka dot effect. Cool right?
I used 2 coats with no top coat.





I also decided to try it out over Santa red my list as a santa hat type mani, and it did not look too bad!



Tomorrow I will share with you the other foil polishes in this collection. 
If you are interested in purchasing any of the collection you can grab them where I did at Cherry Culture and they are only USD$3.75 each plus postage.

Until next time........
