China Glaze Seas And Greetings | Holiday 2016 Collection

Today I have swatches of a new Holiday 2016 Collection. 

"Tis the sea-sun for holiday cheer!  This year China Glaze® takes you on a tropical escape away from the traditional snowy winter climate and wishes you Seas and Greetings.  The chill vibe of this collection has nothing to do with weather and everything to do with attitude.  Winter gets warmed up as faded ocean blues and weathered seashell pinks capture the relaxed feel of a day at the beach, while sparkling glitters and shimmers add a classic holiday touch"

"Sand in My Mistletoes" is a peachy nude crème. The formula is a bit patchy on its first coat but after the second medium coat made it beautiful.  

"Eat, Pink, Be Merry" is a sweet rose pink shimmer. First coat applies smooth but a thin nail line shines through. Second coat makes it perfect! This is my favorite polish in the collection.

"Snow Way!" is an iridescent white shimmer. The first coat was a bit patchy. This is two coats and you can still see some faint patches.

"Seas and Greetings" is a iridescent amethyst. This is two coats with a beautiful shimmer.

"Joy to the Waves" is a Shimmering serene blue. This is two coats. The polish is a tad too thin and be careful to avoid streaks

"Let's Shell-Ebrate" is a purple and gold confetti glitter. The polish picks up the glitter well. This is two coats.

China Glaze | Rebel Fall Collection 2016

This 12 piece fall collection has a wide variety of creams, matte, and shimmer polishes. 

" Inspired by the 1990s but with a modern twist, the feminine pinks and pearls paired with deep purples, blues and grays capture the spirit of the decade that brought us grunge, baby doll dresses paired with Doc Martens, Kate Moss, and the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”.  China Glaze puts a unique twist on the trend by utilizing some of the newest finishes in nail polish including a gorgeous matte satin in Combat Blue-ts (my personal fave) and slight color transitioning pearlescent in the aptly named Pearl Jammin’"

Dope Taupe
A lovely taupe cream polish. The formula is amazing and only needed one coat. Photo doesn't show it but there is a purple hue to the polish as well.

Pearl Jammin'
A unique pearly white shimmer polish. The formula is thin and streaks only a little. This is two medium coats 

Fresh Prince-ss
A baby pink cream polish. The formula evens out nicely. This is one medium coats

Y'All Red-y for this
A bright red cream shimmer glitter polish. The formula is amazing. This is one coat

Jagged Little Teal
A deep teal cream polish. The formula is thick but the color is a lot more teal than blue. This is one coat. The photo does not show the teal hue. The camera unfortunately did not pick it up. Trust me though, looks just like the bottle. 

Purple Fiction
A deep purple metallic shimmer polish. This is one coat. The polish looks beautiful on camera.

Combat blue-TS
A cobalt blue cream polish. The formula dried matte rather quick so be sure to work fast. This is one coat but stains the cuticles

Heroine Chic
A deep brown bronze shimmer polish. This is two coats. The photo doesn’t do the polish justice. This one stained unfortunately.

A cobalt shimmer polish. This is one coat. The formula is amazing

Teen Spirit
A deep purple shimmer polish. This is one coat

Don't Mesh with Me
A super thin purple shimmer polish. This is two coats. A fun topper 

Holo At Ya Girl
A thin multi-sized gold and blue glitter polish. This is one coat. A fun topper
