China Glaze Glistening Snow

Another of last year's polishes whose time has come around again, this is China Glaze Glistening Snow...

Like Angel Wings and Winter Holly, China Glaze Glistening Snow is another very finely milled glitter from the 2012 Holiday Joy Collection. It's a lovely, soft silver that's been dusted with holographic particles to make it glint and gleam (and presumably, glisten) like twinkling Christmas lights reflected in the snow.

China Glaze is so good at these fine, full coverage glitters! They are extremely top-coat thirsty (this is Gelous + SV, and it'll need at least a third coat to be glassy-smooth), but the soft, sparkling payoff is so beautiful! You can also choose to wear it without top coat; it dries to a matte finish that's surprisingly smooth to the touch and still gives off those little holo flashes.

I like it best top coated, though, all sparkling and twinkling--and yes, glistening--in the light.

I really could go for about eleventy-jillion more of these glitters, in so many colours! Could you get on that, China Glaze? Pretty please, for me?

  3. I bought it last year, and gave it away - it didn't wow me - but it looks really petty on you!
