China Glaze 'Tis the Season: Snow & Frosty

The China Glaze 'Tis the Season Holiday 2010 Collection contains 2 white shades, Snow and Frosty. Aptly named for the season, don't you think? As I've been doing with all of the shades from this collection, I'll be giving away new bottles of each polish as they're posted. If you'd like to enter to win both of these shades, just leave your eMail in the comments below.

Below: Snow, a white creme, covered quite well using 2 coats. I'm always a little nervous with white creme shades because they're often thick and/or streaky, but Snow performed nicely for me. This is a clean white shade without being blindingly white.

Below: Frosty is shown using one coat over Snow. This is a somewhat sheer pearly white shade with tiny white and silver foil glitter. I used it alone and I was satisfied with 3 coats, although I prefer it over a similar shade. Used alone, more of the silver glitter is evident. The glitter in this sparkles like glistening snow and I noticed indoors under artificial lighting (not shown), the glitter also shows a subtle hint of other colors.

I was impressed with Snow because it applied nicely and was opaque in 2 coats--not my typical experience with a white creme! Frosty softens the look of Snow a bit, while also dressing it up with its sparkle. The formula of Snow reminds me of the Color Club Japanese glitters and some of the China Glaze glitters, in that it's a little jelly-ish. I'd like to try Frosty over a darker color to see what that looks like also. Has anyone tried that? What did you think?

The entry period will be open until midnight tomorrow, 10/23/10, and I'll announce the winner on Monday. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

  9. Those are wonderful colours for winter, I really like this snowy effect on your nails! I have been dying lately to get OPI's Funny Bunny because it was so soft and went smoothly on the pics I saw, and even if these ones are not exactly the same, they have the same effect on me :)

  10. White nail polishes are a nightmare! Is Snow easier to apply than White on White? I have the latter and rarely use it because it's so difficult (bald spots! argh!) :/

  13. I'd been eyeballing Frosty, but wasn't sure how it would behave in real life. Sounds like it can work on its own, but also looks lovely over other colors!!

  27. Gorgeous polishes! I have a Gosh polish named Vanilla Ice that is a sheer white glitter... It looks STUNNING over black, would love to try this one out over black too (you can see Vanilla Ice on my blog)! Sadly it didn't make my top 3 which I decided to get, so I'd be thrilled to enter your giveaway!

  36. I don't normally like white nail polish, but both of these whites have grown on me due to the copious number of swatches I've seen. That much be good for China Glaze's business, right?
