Swatch Time: China Glaze Love You Snow Much
I found my Ruby Pumps polish so here’s some swatches of China Glaze’s Love You Snow Much holiday collection. You can get the collection for $2.99 per polish from Head2ToeBeauty.com or from other places that sell China Glaze. I’m not sure how much other places will charge, though.
China Glaze Tinsel. I’m still trying to find the right description for this color. I want to say that it has a sheer silver base with silver glitter, yet it seems as though there’s no color base at all when applied. Either way, this is two coats and as you can see, it covers quite nicely. There are spots that are not fully opaque but the polish still has enough coverage…and sparkles like tinsel on a Christmas tree!
China Glaze 5 Golden Rings. This picture really does the color no justice, but it was the best one I could get. The description of this polish is similar to Tinsel, except change “silver” and replace it with “gold”. Upon closer inspection of 5 Golden Rings, I noticed that there are really fine gold flecks (think pixie dust small) in the glitter, which may be the reason for why I think this color and Tinsel have colored bases when in reality, they probably don’t. Either way, I’ll be sure I’m wearing this color when Christmas caroling so I can thrust my hand in the air, frantically wiggle my fingers to make them twinkle off the lights, and sing at the top of my lungs “FIVE GOLDEN RINGS!”
China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I don’t blame Elphaba. If Dorothy had shoes like these on her feet that were the original property of my now deceased sister, I would have tried to kill her too…or I would have at least turned her into a frog or something. Ruby Pumps was actually the first China Glaze color I ever bought and since then, I’ve been running wild getting anything China Glaze. It’s a red base with bits of small red glitter. This polish really does twinkle like Dorothy’s shoes!
China Glaze Emerald Sparkle. My favorite of the bunch for two reason: 1) It’s glittery (yes I know they’re all glittery), and 2) it’s GREEN (which is what makes this glittery polish better than the others in my humble opinion, haha). Quite frankly, if the Emerald City looked anything like this polish, then I don’t know what Dorothy was complaining about nor why she would want to leave a place this gorgeous! Emerald Sparkle is the green counterpart of Ruby Pumps: deep emerald colored base with green glitter. Absolutely gorgeous!!
