China Glaze ~ Brand Sparkin’ New Year



China Glaze ~ Brand Sparkin’ New Year
Purple jelly with purple and holographic glitter

Here’s the last of the three glitters I bought from the Cheers Collection from Christmas 2015. You should check out Ugly Sweater Party and I Soiree I didn’t do it as well.

The formula is a little bit tricky because the polish is so packed with glitter. That makes it a bit lumpy, but it’s definitely manageable. I used two coats for my mani. The drying time was okay, it was slower than the two of its sisters, but that’s because I had to use thicker layers to make it look nice. Perhaps I should have used three thin coats instead of two thicker...

But anyway – Here’s what the polish looks like in ordinary daylight. No sun, it’s cloudy today. There’s two coats and a layer of topcoat:


Here’s a picture from the lightbox. I love glitters like this one.


I will always have a soft spot for glitter!


I stamped on it. I used a floral motif from Moyou London’s Pro Collection-14, and I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White as my stamping polish. I made mint green dots in the middle of each flower, I used a stamping polish from El Corazón for that.

Here’s the final mani including a layer of topcoat:


What do you think about that? I kind of regret that I added the mint green myself.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Okay
Finish: Lots of glitter in jelly
Overall impression: Great colour, nice glitter, a bit thick formula
Buy again: Yes

  2. Uhm... I think these glitters are too big for me... They do show a lovely sparkle though.

    1. They are a little big big, but bear in mind that my nails are small, so perhaps the glitters are smaller than you think :)

  3. Another you polish - and yes, it's so noisy (in a good way) that it is fine on it's own or with just the white stamping...

    1. I did regret the mint green. Sometimes the ideas look better in your head than they do on the nails :D
