I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had a friend in the US who sent me a few goodies just after Christmas, this nail polish set was one of them. It was a Christmas set but lets be honest, it’s not like there’s a ban on glitter and metallics for the rest of the year is there?!
This set is Be Bright and contains 1 metallic nail polish and three glitter top coats.
Here is Your Presents Required over Essie’s Fiji. This polish doesn’t look much in the bottle but once I’d applied it to my ring finger I then had to put it on all the others too! It has so many colours in it that it looks perfect over a nude colour like Fiji
There are also multiple sizes of the different colours of glitter too which make it look a lot more authentic and less perfect making it look a lot better, in my opinion. This one is my favourite out of the whole packet!
This nail polish is Mingle with Kringle, a gorgeous super shimmery gold polish.
The photo above shows one coat, and the photos below show two coats. Two coats are definitely required for opacity and the colour is gorgeous. It’s a true gold and extremely shimmery! I really like this shade but I do have quite a few polishes like this already.
For the next glitter, Bells will be Blinging was applied to my ring finger over an Essie polish called Parka Perfect. The photos below shows one coat of the glitter polish:
And the above shows 2 coats. You can see it definitely needs two coats for the full amount of sparkle, I can’t say this is one that I’ll use too often as I much prefer the first polish for glitter and don’t often wear blues generally. But I was impressed how well this showed up after one coat, but as always you’ll need 2 for the full effect!
Lastly we have Be Merry, Be Bright another multicoloured and multi sized glitter which I have applied over Ballet Slippers.
In all honesty I didn’t think I’d like this at all, I’m not sure why, maybe it was the blue glitter in it. In the bottle I think the blue glitter looks a considerable amount more than it does on the nails and I’ve surprised myself by actually loving it!
Which is your favourite? I really have surprised myself by which ones of these are my favourites. China glaze is one of my favourite nail polish brands and I love every collection they bring out!
Do you have any China Glaze favourites?
