China Glaze Winter Twinkle Collection Selected Polishes Swatch and Review and Giveaway

Greetings and Nailutations,

I had done some shopping at Sally Beauty Supply at the start of December and am now just getting to swatching what I picked up!  How does December move faster than all the other months?  Today I am sharing 4 polishes from the China Glaze Twinkle Collection, which is their 2014 Winter Collection.  I also nabbed a set of 3 full size polishes for a lucky blog follower as well.  Keep reading to find out how to win!

Now let's get to some swatches!

First up is Define Good..., which is a beautiful satin finish maroon.  Define Good... epitomizes the holiday season when it hits the light.  Out of the 4 I bought, this one is my favorite (but I am always a lover of darker shades).  I also like that it's not overly "holiday," so that I can wear it all year.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.





Next up is De-Light, a gold glitter topper.  De-Light contains small gold hexes, micro gold glitter and holographic gold bar glitter.  I'm usually not a fan of bar glitter, and stay away from it, but I didn't mind it in this polish.  Photos show 2 coats (and gradient) over Define Good... with shiny top coat.



Pine-ing For Glitter is a teal glitter topper.  It contains a few sizes of teal hex glitter and can build up to opacity in 4 coats.  I have 2 coats shown below over Jenna Hipp's We Are Mint To Be and topped with a shiny top coat.



The last polish is Feeling Twinkly, a royal blue micro glitter polish.   This one was also another favorite of mine.  Feeling Twinkly is shown below with 2 coats over Jenna Hipp's I Surf With Boys and topped with a shiny top coat.




Shiny Top Coat: Gloss It from Krafty Girl Designs

Loves:  There are a total of 12 polishes in this collection, which is great because you can pick up just what calls your name and they come in a few sets so you can try smaller sizes in a  few colors (which is what I did).  I always love China Glaze names because they make me smile....who doesn't love polish puns?  I also enjoyed working with the formula on these polishes too.

Wishes:  I wish I had picked up I'd Melt For You, Tip Your Hat and Out Like A  Light (a silver, red and gray crelly).  Buuuut, I am sure they are still floating around my local Sally Beauty Supply.

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka @BeginNails
