China Glaze - Happy Holiglaze Swatches & Review

Is everyone getting into the Christmas/Holiday spirit yet?
It seems like it starts earlier every year, I swear. I guess that's just old age making me feel that way though...
I used to work in retail and the holidays started almost right after they ended, with ordering and least with nail blogging they don't really start til around August/September. 
I say these things because today I have some of the polishes from China Glaze's holiday collection - Happy Holiglaze, to share with you today. There is a much "brighter" selection here than in some of the other big brand holiday collections, let's check it!

Oh yeah - I totally broke the corner off of my pointer yesterday! What a bummer. Instead of just putting blogging on hold, I shaped them all down into more squoval shaped and less square...I kind of like it.

These are the polishes I was sent to review by PR. From left to right they are: All Wrapped Up, This Is Tree-Mendous, There's Snow One Like You, Just Be Claws, Santa Red My List and Elfin' Around.

First up is All Wrapped Up - a beautiful sort of cornflower lilac color. Full coverage glitter - shown here at 3 coats plus top coat.

Elfin' Around - a very pretty autumnal shade of rusted orange in a foil finish. This is a literal one coater. No top coat.

Just Be Claws - A metallic shimmer red polish, nothing special but that doesn't diminish its beauty either. Shown here at 2 coats, no top coat.

Santa Red My List - this one is a little bit of a pinkish/wine shade, another foil finish similar to Elfin' Around, and also a stunning one coater! No top coat.

There's Snow One Like You - LOVE this! This is a textured shade with no shimmer, but instead larger, clumpy glitters that don't shimmer. This polish is more for a person who loves funky, nail art styled polishes. I don't think this would fit well into a lot of peoples collections, but if you love to do nail art, or have funky nails, or do things a little differently, I think you will enjoy this one. The formula is thickish and hard to work with because its clumpy, the secret is to put it over a white base. I believe they were trying to achieve the look of snow on your nails - and they hit it right on the head!

This Is Tree-Mendous - a light evergreen full coverage glitter - same as with All Wrapped Up, it's a 3 coat glitter with glorious depth. Shown here with top coat.

My picks from these polishes in the collection are There's Snow One Like You, All Wrapped Up and Elfin' Around - have you picked any of these up yet? If so, which ones are you loving?
