China Glaze Naughty and Nice Collection [Part 1 of 4]

Well, the whole name of the collection is 'Tis the Season to be Naughty and Nice, but that's pretty long, so...I'm incredibly excited that China Glaze is giving us sixteen new polishes for the holiday season! Sixteen! Let's take a look, shall we?


Snow is a basic white creme. It's pretty soft-looking in real life and not chalky or terribly stark like some others. The formula isn't my favorite, but I used one thin coat, one thick coat, and then one medium coat to kind of fill in all the streaky spots.



Midnight Kisses is a gorgeous gold foil. Opaque in two coats, and dries quickly. This is definitely one of my favorites in the collection!



Ruby Deer is a basic red. It has a wonderful application and takes two coats. I have some like this in my collection, but if you're in the market for a nice, holiday red this one should do the trick.



Finally there's Peace on Earth, which is a metallic olive green shimmer. It flashes brown in some lights, but below is a much more accurate picture, color-wise.
It's not really my type of color and I probably wouldn't wear it, but I still like it. Pretty funky for a holiday collection, and I like that.



Opinions? The rest will be up sometime soon; I had some camera issues, lighting issues, and timing issues, so this is the third time I've swatched these haha. I also just chopped all my nails off short, but I kind of like how they look.


Also, don't forget to enter the Naughty or Nice giveaway here, where the winner will receive all sixteen polishes (each used for swatching only.) There will be second and third place prizes, as well. Hope everyone has a great week!

i bought this/these product/products myself. see disclosure policy for more information
