China Glaze ~ Twinkle Lights

Bourjois ~ Rouge Escarpin
A classic red crème


China Glaze ~ Twinkle Lights
A clear base packed with red, green and gold glitters

I was going to a Christmas party and wanted nails with a lot of bling-effect. Twinkle Lights from China Glaze’s “Let it snow” collection from 2011 is such a polish.

I started with one coat of Bourjois’ ‘Rouge Escarpin’. It’s a polish I’ve had for quite a while without trying it on. It’s a gorgeous red crème, and one coat actually did the job very nicely : 

After that I applied two coats of Twinkle Lights. I think the red base might be a mistake, since it was impossible to get as close to the edges with the glitter as the red, but hey, I wanted to be sure that I wouldn’t have to start all over again if the China Glaze turned out to be too sheer.

Here it is, in all its golden glory:

Lots and lots of glitter. Shiny, sparkly, attention seeking. I love it, even though I’m usually more of a silvery kind of person.

  1. These nails polishes are too cute! I really like the Red polish, it's perfect for the holidays <3

  2. That's exactly what I thought too. :)
    I have already found a better home for the China Glaze, one that appreciates golden glitter more than I do. <3

  3. Red is an all time favourite colour for sure. :)
