I have talked before about my love of green nail polishes. Green polishes are well represented in my collection. And now they have a new friend: China Glaze Glittering Garland.
I don’t always like shimmer, but for the holidays it’s absolutely appropriate. And the gold glass fleck in Glittering Garland is so subtle and so pretty.
This is a cooler green, which is nice for my frigidly pale Irish/Alaskan skin. But the glass fleck gives it some additional dimension. I think it would look nice with warmer skin tones, too.
And just for fun, here it is layered under (left to right) China Glaze Twinkle Lights, Color Club Covered in Diamonds, and that random snowman drugstore glitter.
I promise I didn’t actually leave the house wearing three different glitters on my fingernails. Although if I were 16 years younger, I’d probably go for it.
I was at my new favorite local China Glaze supplier (Marie’s Beauty Salon & Supply, if you’re an Anchorage local) the other day, lingering over the Let It Snow collection, and I was sorely tempted by the creme green and reds. I hadn’t bought them before because I feel like I’ve already got plenty of green and red cremes... but maybe it isn’t too much to hope there will be some left over and marked down after Christmas? I’m pretty sure I could justify them if they were on sale... of course, if Santa is reading this...
