China Glaze ~ Define Good and December to Remember



China Glaze ~ Define Good and December to Remember
My two picks from China Glaze’s Twinkle collection from Holidays 2014

Today I’m going to show you the two polishes I picked from China Glaze’s Twinkle collection. They came out with 12 polishes, but sometimes a girl just has to pick what she really wants, right?

So, first one up is Define Good. That’s a sexy red if there ever was one. It’s a deep, shimmery and very vampy cranberry red. The formula is great, and the polish applies easily. It’s almost a one coater but I did two. It didn’t make much of a difference though, nothing I could see with bare eyes anyway.

Take a look at how beautiful two coats and no top coats look:


The depth is amazing – I love it!


I added a bit of holo glitter just because I like that too. I used Out the Door’s “Silver” – a silver micro glitter holo topcoat. Here’s what that looks like:


Here’s a flash picture of the same thing. I love how this turned out!


Define Good is a winner in my book for sure. It’s gorgeous!

My second pick was December to Remember. It’s a medium icy blue with pink shimmer. The formula is equally good and I also used two coats of this to achieve full opacity. Drying time is good, no worries. It wasn’t easy to capture the pink shimmer, so my pictures don’t really do the product justice, but I did my best.

Here’s two coats and no topcoat:


It’s beautiful, I don’t think I have anything like it in my collection!


I added glitter to December to Remember. I chose a suitable glitter from Darling Diva called “Flocons de Neige Sous L’aurore” – that basically means “Snowflakes In Aurora”. It’s a clear base packed with pink shimmer, white stars, glitters and snowflakes, and pink and blue circles and hexes.

You know the drill: One dip in the bottle per nail. I had to wipe some of the glitters off the brush because it was seriously loaded when I pulled it out of the bottle! Wow!

Here’s one coat of the Darling Diva glitter and one layer of topcoat over it:


These two polishes were practically made for each other!


December to Remember is a winner too – I don’t regret buying it at all!


Number of coats: 2/2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Shimmers
Overall impression: Both polishes are great quality polishes with amazing colours and shimmer. Two winners!
Buy again: Yes to both
