I know most of you are probably done and done with holiday collections by now, but I had been waiting to get a little closer to the actual holidays to post these. Moving to the West coast recently, I am finding it difficult to deal with the lack of seasonality here! I keep waiting for snow to fall, but I will probably have to travel to see that. So... since the weather won't put me in the holiday spirit, I will have to leave it up to holiday collections!
One of my favorite this year has definitely been by China Glaze. If you've missed Part 1 of this collection, click here. I love how they've taken classic Christmas palette of red, green, gold and metallics and turned them into just excellent polishes that exemplify the season.
Jingle Bells - is a warm classic gold. This is the color of brass jingle bells with their jingle-all-the-way shake, shake, shake. It's the perfect backdrop for Party Hearty, my official glitter of this holiday season!

Cheers to You
Cheers to You - is a cool frostbite silver metallic. The application on this and the other metallics of this collection is just superb. Two coats and you have a smooth opaque finish.

Midnight Kiss - is a lighter, paler gold. It's less warm than Jingle Bells. It reminds me more of champagne than brass. I could see this as being more universally flattering on most skintones (vs. Jingle Bells).

Mom Kissing Santa
Mom Kissing Santa - is a shimmery cool poinsettia red. Initially, I was confused and from the promo pics thought that this and Sugar Plums were the same color. Vastly different! Sugar Plum is different a cool plum tone with glitter where as Mom Kissing Santa is a striking holiday shimmery red. I didn't think much of it in the bottle, but I loved it on the nail. If you are someone that loves holiday shades but finds glitter and metallic frosts too much, I highly recommend this.
