China Glaze Jolly Holly, Little Drummer Boy & Cheers To You

CONTEST HAS ENDED!

I have 3 more shades from the China Glaze 'Tis the Season Holiday 2010 Collection for you today. As I've been doing each time I swatch shades from this collection, you can leave your eMail in the comments section if you'd like to enter for a chance to win all three of them. Entries are due by midnight 11/20/10 and the winner will be announced on Monday.

Below: Little Drummer Boy is a little darker than I'd imagined based on the promo photos, but it's a lovely dark cadet blue shimmer that applied nicely using 2 coats. I'm finding all of the shades in this collection to be highly pigmented and the formula is very good.

Below: Jolly Holly--you'll notice I called it Holly Jolly in my photo collage above, oops!--is a rich darker emerald green shimmer that has a nice holiday glow to it.

Below: Cheers to You, a bright crushed silver foil shade is similar to many other silvers that have come out lately with this same type of finish (Sally Hansen Metallic Momentum, Barielle Night Moves, Quirius Black Coal, and Orly Shine to name a few). Again, very nice coverage on this.

Below: Or, if you're wanting a little different look using all 3 of these shades, mix yourself up a cup of eggnog (heavy on the rum or whiskey)and start looking around for household objects that can double as nail art tools!

Below: Brush a bit of Little Drummer Boy and Jolly Holly on the edge and roll it or dab it over each nail that you've already painted with Cheers to You.

Below: You might want to do a little neater job than I did, but you get the general idea!

All three of these shades are winners in my opinion. They're probably dupish to other polishes out there, but they're just different enough that I didn't find anything identical in my collection. The formula and price can't be beat either!

  26. I've got all three of these colors, so good luck to everyone else - and whomever wins, congratulations!! These are all lovely shades.

    I'm next going to try a gradient-look with Jolly Holly, Frosty, and Snow (using some ubercheap sponge eyeshadow applicators to apply the white polishes.) Should prove interesting!
