Today is December! 24 days till Christmas!

Hey Ladies,

Today, the first day od December, I have a festive polish for you! China Glaze - Mrs. Clause from their current holiday collection.

When I first saw this colour on other blogs it didn't really do anything for me. In my opinion it looked like a faded red that was too glittery. And didn't I already have the better version of this colour? (Ruby Red Pumps)

It was the red/pink jelly that finally caught me! I have very little jellies but really love the look of them. I figure I could layer with it also.

It took only 2 coats to lose the visible nail line, but I wanted a little more coverage so I went with 3 coats overall and minor touch ups in less glitter dense spots. I added one last coat of my new Seche Vite and I was good to go. Considering this is pure glitter, its not too gritty and actually pretty smooth with the top coat.

The whole time I have been wearing this polish I have had a love/hate relationship with it. Sometimes I think it still is too dull, sometimes I think its so sparkly! But overall my opinion right at this moment is like :) not love, but I really do like it. Sure, it may be a little to flashy for everyday but I do like it, in lower light it looks kind of copper/pink and I like that. This would be the perfect glittery colour for Christmas or new years eve.

FYI, removal of this polish was the WORST! I have ever come across :( I used the foil method (my first time) and I'm pretty sure that I still have some glitter stuck in the sides of some of my cuticles lol. I really had to pick the glitter off because it is larger than what I have used in the past.

What do you ladies think? Would you wear this colour? If you own it, how do you feel about it?


  1. If I owned it, I would cherish it and sleep with it at night (among about a hundred of other polishes, ouch ^^), it's really beautiful!!


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
