China Glaze ~ Ugly Sweater Party



China Glaze ~ Ugly Sweater Party
Pink, blue and holographic glitter

Ugly Sweater Party is from the Cheers Collection from Christmas 2015. It’s shiny and it’s glittery and it’s right down my alley.

I hadn’t seen swatches before I bought it, so I wasn’t quite sure whether this was a topper or a polish that would work on it’s own. I might as well reveal right now that it isn’t a topper. This glittery beauty works really well on its own, wait and see.

The formula is exactly what to expect from a polish loaded with glitter: It feels thick but it isn’t really. I used two coats for my mani, and the drying time between the layers was surprisingly good.

And be still my glittery heart! Here’s two coats and no topcoat taken in ordinary daylight:


The polish dries up a bit bumpy because of the glitters, it’s hardly surprising for anybody. I didn’t apply topcoat yet though. I wasn’t finished with the manicure.


I stamped on it. I found a sweater motif on Moyra Stamping Plate-02 Fabric Texture. I thought that would be very appropriate for a polish called Ugly Sweater Party, haha. I also stamped a moose on my ring finger nails. I used my faithful Black from NailNation 3000 for the stamping.

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


The stamping drowns a little bit in all the glitter, but I don’t mind.


I bought three glitters from the Cheers Collection, and I’m going to show you the other two very shortly!

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Glitter, glitter, glitter
Overall impression: Wow, this is so glittery and shiny and cool
Buy again: Yes
