China Glaze Glittering Garland

Hi hello!!

  Today I have a quickie post for you guys. It is a simple swatch of a beauty I picked up on clearance at Sally's. This is the only China Glaze Holiday color I picked up from 2011's collection. I honestly was not that blown away by CG's 2011 Holiday Collection when compared to 2010's. But this was so cheap I just could not pass it up. Glittering Garland made a lot of "Best of 2011" lists and I can totally see why now.....
So... Pretty amazing right? Glittering Garland is a deep Emerald Green base packed full of micro glassfleck shimmer. I am madly in love with the light Green shimmer in this because it's not really a bright, in-your-face, type of shimmer. This is more of a "glow from beneath" shimmer that lights up the creamy base. The formula for Glittering Garland is absolutely great and only takes Two coats. I am so glad I picked this up!!

Thoughts?

  9. I love this. Green is not a favorite of mine - but this is a sister to my favorite polish - ruby pumps (exactly the same but red) and I'm hoping because both these polishes got so much attention that they'll make more colors like them.

  11. This was such a hit with me that I might even stop looking for an old CG called Emerald Sparkle I always wanted big time!

  13. I have this polish and love it. However, wanted to let everyone know that it is a *near* dupe of Orly's Meet Me Under the Mistletoe. The polish obsessed blog did a really good comparison.

  14. I LOVE this color! This and Snow Globe were the only two colors I grabbed from their holiday collection this year and I'm 100% in love with both of them! Once, I layered Essie's As Gold as it Gets over the top to add even more gold glittery goodness. And Snow Globe over top of a light blue is GORGE!
