Hello readers! It's cold and raining here. It finally feels like Winter. So I suppose it's the perfect time to share the China Glaze Twinkle Collection! This is a 12-piece collection that has cremes, shimmers, glitter toppers, a little something for everyone's stocking this year! The Twinkle Collection is currently available at your local beauty supply stores and online. So get a mug of hot cocoa and grab a seat while we check out all these lovely polishes.
December To Remember is a shimmery medium blue full of pink sparkle. I like how this color brings to mind twinkling ice. You do get a slight frosty look because of the heavy shimmer so brushstrokes are a bit visible. The formula and application were both lovely. I used 3 coats of December To Remember for full coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.
No Peeking! is a frosty, shimmery plum. This is a gorgeous color and definitely one of my favorites from the collection. Again you will see that the shimmer is a but heavy causing a frosty look. Paint with caution or use the sponge method to eliminate visible brush strokes. The formula and application were both great. I used 2 coats of No Peeking! and 1 layer of topcoat.
Define Good... is my favorite of the Twinkle Collection. Just look at the perfect shimmery burgundy shade. Formula and application were both fantastic. I used 2 coats of Define Good... for full coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.
Dancing & Prancing is a colorful, blingy glitter topper. There are lots of silver, gold, red, pink, blue and green metallic glitters in this mixture. It's the perfect way to add sparkle to any mani and would look great over any of the solid colors in this collection. The formula and application were both great, I was very please with the glitter payoff. I used 2 coats of Dancing & Prancing over Define Good...
Out Like A Light is a beautiful and buttery deep grey creme. If you need a grey creme in your stash I highly recommend this one. Out Like A Light has a fabulous formula and applied perfectly. I used 1 coat of Out Like A Light and one layer of topcoat.
Meet Me Under The Stars is full of blue and silver micro glitters in a blackened base. It absolutely does look like a dark, starry night and it's beautiful. Formula and application were both great. You can wear this alone or over a base color. I chose to wear if over a base color. I have on 2 coats of Meet Me Under The Stars over Out Like A Light. I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
Tip Your Hat is a beautiful bright and crisp red creme. I know everyone loves a great red creme and this is definitely just that. Formula and application were both fabulous. I used 2 coats of Tip Your Hat and 1 layer of topcoat.
De-light is a glitter bomb full of metallic and holo gold glitters. I see short bars, micro glitter, hexs. I did not do justice to this color. I initially thought I would need to layer it but it's a pretty dense glitter and can be worn alone, that's how I plan to wear it next time. The formula and application were both good, I was happy with the glitter payoff. I have on 2 coats of De-light with some dabbing to cover empty spaces. I layered it over Tip Your Hat. I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
I'd Melt For You is a silver metallic foil. I love the look of this polish. Very space-age and retro but at the same time edgy. The formula was nice and it applied easily. But be careful to not overwork the polish or you could end with bald patches. You could also use the sponge method to get rid of the brushstrokes but I didn't think they were that prominent. I used 2 coats of I'd Melt For You and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
Chillin' With My Snow-mies is a matte white glitter topper. There are only white hexs in a few different sizes. The glitter is a bit heavy so it was hard to get alot of glitter on the brush. Keep in mind fishing is required for this one. I used 1-2 coats of Chillin' With My Snow-mies by dabbing the glitter on. I have it over I'd Melt With You and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
Pine-ing For Glitter is a green metallic micro glitter. You can wear this alone or over a base color. I chose to wear it alone and really like the way it looked! It's a very pretty emerald color and has plenty of sparkle. Formula and application were both good - easy to work with and nice coverage. I used 3 coats of Pine-ing For Glitter and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
Last but not least here is Feeling Twinkly. Cute name, beautiful polish. This is a metallic blue micro glitter. You can wear this alone or over a base color. I decided to wear it alone. Formula and application were both nice. I used 3 coats of Feeling Twinkly and finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
