China Glaze Happy Holiglaze Christmas Collection 2013 Swatches and Review - Part 2

Hey everyone! Today I'm back for the second part of my China Glaze Happy Holiglaze review, if you missed the first part you can see it here. I'm sorry it's been almost a week since I posted the first part of this review, but hopefully you've been enjoying all the christmassy nail art I've been posting this week! In this part of my review I'm going to be showing you the glitters from the collection, of which there are 3 fine glitter polishes and 3 glitter toppers. As most of us associate glitter and christmas this is definitely a very christmassy collection! Full review will be after the jump
First up is All Wrapped Up*, which is a purple-blue fine glitter. The pictures do make it look more blue than it actually is. This was 3 coats, and as it dries matte (as you can see below) I added one coat of Seche Vite.

Next up from the fine glitters is This Is Tree-Mendous* which is an awesome christmas tree green, hence the name. This again was 3 coats, and I added 1 coat of topcoat to bring out the shine.

The last of the three fine glitters is Put A Bow On It*, a gorgeous purple. This was 3 coats, although 2 coats might have been enough. I did think with the first coat that this was going to be a difficult polish but it evened out after the second. Again I used one coat of Seche Vite

Now we have the glitter toppers! The first of which is Your Present Required*, a multicoloured glitter. This is one coat over 2 coats of China Glaze - Kinetic Candy, and I did need some placement.

Then we have Be Merry Be Bright*, which is probably my favourite of the whole collection. I layered this over 2 coats of China Glaze - Something Sweet. This is one coat and some slight placement was needed, this is without topcoat

And finally we have Bells Will Be Blinging* which is a combination of gold and blue bar glitter and hex glitter. This was 1 coat over China Glaze - Electric Beat without topcoat and I had no trouble with application.

Overall, I'm really impressed with this whole collection, it's definitely well suited to christmas and I really love the glitters especially. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
