China Glaze – Glistening Snow

China Glaze - Glistening Snow

I just got this polish in the mail.  I didn’t know what to expect since it is brand new, from the China Glaze Holiday 2012 collection, and couldn’t find any swatches of it yet.  I was actually thinking it was more of a linear holographic nail polish, but it is a holographic glitter polish.  The coverage is AMAZING!!  You really could get away with one coat, but I always like to do two coats as shown above.  The only downfalls to this polish is that it looks more like metal in the direct natural sunlight as it can start looking too dull.  Also, the texture its sooooo gritty!  I swear I had to put about 4 coats of top coat to get out the gross gritty texture.  That drives me nuts ’cause it gets caught on everything and I hate the way it feels.  I actually could have probably used 5 coats of Seche Vite, but it seemed just a bit too excessive.  This above picture is shown with no top coat.

Oh yeah, one more thing… this polish chipped off so fast!!!   I guess that is because of the texture.  My China Glaze polish usually doesn’t chip that fast.  It was all gone off my nails in a few days…and it came off in chunks!  Well, I guess the good part is that it’s way easier to take off that way, since glitter can be a big pain in the ass to take off your nails.
