It may have taken me a bit to post the color swatches of these polishes, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying. Mostly, I spent the time checking out each color and turning into a mad scientist mixing them.
What am I talking about? Remember the China Glaze Limited Edition holiday colors? Yeah – I’ve been having a jolly good time with those.
The holiday collection features some beautiful whites, reds, and greens. I understood the red and green but had to dig deep for the white. Once I made the snow correlation, I felt a little silly. The holiday collection consists of a whopping roster of 16 colors featuring (in addition to the white, reds, and greens) a blue and an Olympic bronze-y copper, silver, and gold.The colors photographed with flash. These are all pretty true to how the colors look in person. All swatches were done with two coats.
Then I had a bright idea. Sure, the matte craze has died down a bit. Companies have released plenty of matte topcoats (some better than others), and are back to their creams, satins, and shimmers. But how does it look flat?Pretty fancy, eh? I am the most happiest with the metal colors when matte. They look like they’re hiding behind frosted glass.
Lest you thought I was done with the experimenting though, I continued to mix colors (only with coats) to see if I was missing out on some kind of secret.
See my math equations? Ha! I’m loving how all the glitters look mixed together, but Party Hearty also looks beyond awesome as a top coat to nearly everything.
What’s your favorite? Which do you want to see on a mani?
