Below: Ruby Deer, a perfect red creme for the holiday season or anytime of the year, applied and covered beautifully using 2 coats. This is a slightly lighter red than Phat Santa, the other red creme in the collection. I've said it before, but it deserves another mention--the creme shades have all applied extremely well and have only required 2 coats. They also seem to have an extra-high gloss finish.
Below: Mrs. Claus has a tinted carnation pink base with foil glitter in similar shades. This one has a jelly-like texture, but still managed to apply surprisingly well. The glitter was evenly distributed, and 2 coats gave me a look I was happy with. The glitter is very sparkly and flashes silver tones with movement of your hand.
Below: I thought Mrs. Claus might be one of those shades that works better as a top coat over another shade, but it really is pigmented enough to use alone. Here it is shown over Ruby Deer, but there are probably other shades in would look nice over, perhaps a pink, white, or even silver. I was
busy lazy though, so I cheated and did it over what I already had on!
I don't think I've come across a bad shade in this huge collection, so many thanks to China Glaze for once again exercising their creative abilities for us to enjoy! If you'd like to win these 2 shades and the plush reindeer, just leave your eMail in the comments section. I'll accept entries until I post my Come Monday Newsletter Monday morning, at which time the winner will be announced.
