China Glaze 2013 Happy HoliGlaze ~ Put a Bow On It & Your Present Required

This year's Holiday season polishes didn't really attract me much. Most of the colours looked like dupes of what I have so lucky me saved a hole in my pocket. However, Put a Bow On It & Your Present Required caught my eyes immediately when I saw the promotion brochure.

Put a Bow On It
This is a fuchsia glitter polish. It can be worn on its on with 2-3 coats. Alternatively you can wear it as a clear glitter top coat with just 1 layer. The finishing for Put a Bow On It is similar to Glistening Snow from China Glaze 2012 Christmas collection. Without a top coat, it is actually a matte slight texture finishing. To get a glossy finishing, I used 2 layers of top coat.

Your Present Required
This glitter top coat is my favourite from China Glaze 2013 releases. I can actually see myself using this a lot. The glitters are packed and easily applied onto the nails. I doesn't need to fish or manually adjust them on my nails. Check out the macro shot to see how pretty the glitters are.

2013 is a disappointing year for China Glaze as I wasn't particularly wowed by the launches (the Hologlam collection is a huge disappointment and I am not even going to try out the crinkled chrome because it looks extremely ugly to me), so I am glad that China Glaze saved the year with these 2 polishes. I hope that there will be more interesting launch in 2014.
