China Glaze - Winter Wonders

*PRESS SAMPLES*

Hello, lovelies!  I have lots of China Glaze goodies to share with you today.  Some I LOVED, some, not so much. Anywho, let's get right to the swatches, shall we?
China Glaze Define Good..., December to Remember, No Peeking!, I'd Melt For You (two coats each)

China Glaze De-Light, Pine-ing for Glitter, Feeling Twinkly, Meet Me Under the Stars (two coats each)

China Glaze Tip Your Hat, Out Like a Light, Dancing & Prancing, Chillin' With My Snow-mies (two coats each)

First up, my faves!  I absolutely LOVE December to Remember (a gorgeous sky blue with shimmer) and No Peeking! (a stunning almost smoky plum).  They are, by far, my faves of the twelve shades. I am also quite fond of Tip Your Hat (not all that unique but a great classic red cream.  I used two coats in the pic but totally could have gotten away with one) and Out Like a Light (a gorgeous deep greenish-greyish beauty).  As for the remaining eight shades, I was less impressed.  

To be honest from the start, chunky glitters do nothing for me.  I find them, in general, quite challenging to apply and get any sort of balanced dispersement of glitter.  Not to mention that they are usually a real pain to remove. However, I don't mind "regular" (for lack of a better word) small glitter, though it's not my favorite.  Therefore, the glitters I like the most are the ones in the second pic and Dancing & Prancing in the third pic, which is festive and kinda fun.  My least favorite, as you can probably guess, is Chillin' With My Snow-mies (though I ADORE the name). Even after two coats, I could not get much payoff from the hexagonal glitters.  As for the remaining polishes, Define Good...and I'd Melt For You, in the first pic, they are okay but in my eyes, nothing special.

To sum up, I highly recommend December to Remember and No Peeking!  Also, kudos to Tip Your Hat and Out Light a Light.  If you're a glitter fan, you might want to check out De-Light, Pine-ing for Glitter, Feeling Twinkly, Meet Me Under the Stars and Dancing & Prancing.  Unless you're a chunky glitter fan, I'd probably pass on Chillin' With My Snow-mies.  

Thanks for reading and I'd love to hear your thoughts!  

The polishes used in this post were provided for my honest review and consideration.
