Holiday Nails: China Glaze Holiday Joy Collection


Since I'm already in the Christmas spirit, I couldn't let my nails go untouched with cheer! This look is super easy to do using scotch tape and two sparkly and bright polishes. I used these two brand new shades from the 2012 China Glaze Holiday Joy collection -- With Love, a bright, pretty basic red, and Champagne Kisses, one of my new favourite glittery rose golds.  I love this one in particular because the sparkles are so dense. The photos above are only using one coat! I applied it using my sponge makeup trick to get the most bang for the buck.

I'm normally not a red polish lover... I tend to think it makes my hands look old (is that weird!?)... maybe because it's all my mom and grandma would wear growing up.  On the rare occasion I do sport a fiery shade, I always try to mix it up with something fun. I think this works, and is perfect for the holidays :)

What is a shade you normally never wear?

  2. I have to try this out!!! I love the colors you choose, especially the sparkly gold! I might do a more of a french tip type thing with the circle reinforcement binder hole stickers!

  13. I don't think there is a nail polish color I wont wear, I haven't worn yellow though...the brighter/darker/more sparkly the better for me! I am doing this tonight for sure!

  18. I know what you mean about the red nail polish. The one color I can never pull off anymore is black. I used to love it in high school, because it went with everything. But now I feel like it just makes me look angsty. :|

  19. I don't think your hands look old! Funny story, I was taking pictures for my etsy account, and thought oh hey, a picture of a ring on an actual hand would be great. So, I took a picture and when I looked at it on the computer to edit it I had to delete them all immediately! Needless to day, I will never be a hand model, haha.
