I do like glitter topcoats quite a lot actually, especially as an accent on the rig finger for example.
Just before the holidays China Glaze came with the Cheers collection. This collection contains 12 great, festive nail polishes that are perfect for the holidays but also after the holidays, they are still very nice though.
The Cheers collection consists of the following polishes:
- Better Not Pout
- Brand Sparkin’ New Year
- Coal Hands, Warm Heart
- Mix and Mingle
- Peppermint to Be
- I Soiree I Didn’t Do It
- Bring on the Bubbly
- Ugly Sweater Party
- Son of a Nutcracker
- Break the Ice
- Wine Down for What?
- Don’t Get Elfed Up
China Glaze Bring on the Bubbly has a colorless, transparent base which is packed with golden hex glitter in three sizes. Some of these have a holographic glitter layer making them very colorful when light falls on the glitters. I have applied Bring on the Bubbly on the swatches over a light base color.
The first glitter polish from the Cheers collection I tried out was Brand Sparkin ‘ New Year and it was not a success, so I was afraid that would be the case with the other glitter polishes from this collection. Fortunately, China Glaze Bring on the Bubbly has a better formula, it is still a bit on the thick side but a lot better than Brand Sparkin‘ New Year. The glitter spreads evenly across the nail so you can apply it like you do with normal polishes.
On the swatches you see just one thin coat. To make it more intense you can apply more layers.
The China Glaze polishes come with a long and narrow brush of good quality.
China Glaze Bring on the Bubbly dries fairly quickly and has a finish with a light texture. To give it a smooth finish you can best apply two layers of a thicker topcoat.
Below is a macro shot of this beauty.
The China Glaze polishes contain 14ml and cost $3,25. The price is very sharp when compared with the quality of the China Glaze polishes. You buy China Glaze Bring on the Bubbly at Nailsupplies.
