China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze

The new China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection

Bells will be ringing and fingernails will be blinging when the new China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection arrives next month.

Glitters and shiny chromes twinkle, twinkle like little stars in the limited edition 12-piece release, so if it’s the sparkly stuff that stokes your fire, BLING!


Here’s a sneak peek at the first half of the collection. Stay tuned for the second six very soon (tomorrow).

China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection: Your Present Required

Your Present Required, a multicolored glitter-fest of glittery hexagons

Teal and purple flecks fill Your Present Required, a multicolored glitter-fest with a clear base.

I’m wearing three coats in the pic above…

China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection: Bells Will Be Blinging

Bells Will Be Blinging, a blue and gold multicolored glitter

Glitter comes in all shapes and sizes, from little bits to longer bars, when the Bells Will Be Blinging. They almost create a speckled egg effect, don’t you think?

In that pic above, I’m wearing two coats.

China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection: All Wrapped Up

All Wrapped Up, a midnight purple and blue glitter

Purplish blue All Wrapped Up looks downright Zoya-esque with its fine gritty finish. If you like tactile treats and textured nails, give this one a whirl. I’m wearing two coats here.

China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection: This Is Tree-Mendous

This Is Tree-Mendous, a green with fine golden glitter

Oh, my gosh! This Is Tree-Mendous!

No, I mean This is Tremendous — it’s one of the polishes in the release. Like All Wrapped Up, its glitter bits are fine, but it feels a little smoother to me, and not quite as bumpy.

I know it’s not the holiday China Glaze had in mind, but I’m saving this one for St. Patrick’s Day (gotta plan ahead, right?).

I like two coats, but three are even better.

China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection: So Blue Without You

So Blue Without You, a shimmery blue with an aluminum-like finish

So Blue Without You could have been called So Blue Without Chrome. Talk about shiny! I swear I’ve seen Camaros with this same exact paint job… πŸ™‚

Wonder Woman would probably love this color. I mean, she likes bling, and the blue looks a little like her skirt. One coat works well, but I used two for extra oomph.

China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection: Mingle With Kringle

Mingle With Kringle — shiny, like a golden mirror

One coat of Mingle With Kringle gets the job done.


If you look closely, you’ll notice big bits of bronze glitter floating in the gold. This one seems subtle and cool, like something Chanel might do.

It’s still early to be talking about the holidays like this, but you know the beauty world — they follow their own schedule.

What do you think of this first batch of HoliGlaze? Do you have a favorite so far?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

  9. They make me “sooooo weak in the knees I can hardly speak.
    I lose all control and something takes over me……”

    Sorry for suddenly belting into a song like that… can’t help it,. that’s exactly what I feel for these polishes. I’m in love! This Is Tree-Mendous and Your Present Required are totally gorg! I’m on a “nail polish ban” for 2 months but not anymore. Nail polish splurge? It’s on!

  10. Woooooot, I am totally in the holiday spirit now! I am not wowed by all of these, but the collection still looks veeeeeery pretty overall. Can’t wait for part II.

    Totally laughing about your Camaro comment. I know someone who still owns one – 80s version, or so I say. His is red, though. πŸ™‚
