China Glaze’s Let It Snow collection

The first collection I’ve been interested in since the spring/summer Anchors Away - partially because I find myself drawn to metallic golds and silvers, even though by now I have quite a few good ones.

A nice mix of creme and shimmer finishes, with some glitters - a decent range of colors too, though red-green-gold is almost the “traditional” holiday palette now. I kind of wish some nail polish vendor would do an “antiqued” holiday color palette similar to the one Meow used for its winter 2010 eyeshadow collections.

Blue Year's Eve is similar to Eyes Like Sapphires, but a bit more opaque and with a more metallic finish. Champagne Bubbles looks like a metallic opaque version of Lighthouse. Tinsel Town reminds me of OPI's Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous and China Glaze's Jitterbug, right down to the roughened metallic texture. Velvet Bow is a lovely shade, I think I have something slightly similar from Zoya but not quite as thick - so Velvet Bow will make an excellent stamping polish.

This collection contained:

  • Blue Year's Eve — deep indigo-sapphire shimmer
  • Champagne Bubbles — bright yellow-gold shimmer
  • Glittering Garland — rich evergreen shimmer
  • Holly-day — rich evergreen creme
  • Icicle — pewter silver shimmer
  • Poinsettia — bright red creme
  • Ring in the Red — metallic bright red shimmer
  • Snow Globe — sheer multicolored iridescent white glitter
  • Tinsel Town — pewter shimmer
  • Twinkle Lights — sheer red gold glitter
  • Velvet Bow — deep red creme
  • Winter Berry — holly-red creme
