China Glaze - Glittering Garland

Heya people! Wow, it's been a while. Thing is, I have a big exam in January and so I asked again my BF to lock the computer, so I don't spend too much time on it. With studying and the holidays I barely have time for the internet anyways. Right now I'm still a bit hangover-ish from the beyond awesome ladies night yesterday and I feel like showing you my NOTD.  I wasn't even sure if I should get Glittering Garland, since it looked a lot like Emerald Sparkle which I already have. The thing is, I think Glittering Garland is Emerald sparkle 2.0, meaning, it beats the hell out of it. And I LOVE Emerald Sparkle. But I love Glittering Garland even more, because sparkles look like glass flecks. And you know my love for glass flecked polish.

 Check the sparkles on the blurry ones!

My nails are at this point painfully short. Seriously, it hurts me, like right now as I'm typing this away. They are too short, but they started to break and plaster and I cannot moisturise them enough for them to be happy again. *sigh* Stupid cold. 

Glittering Garland is a part of China Glaze Let It Snow! collection for Holiday 2011, a collection that didn't call my name at all when I first saw it nor when I saw the first swatches. Now I have 4 varnishes at home, Glittering Garland and Ring In The Red being my new discovered loves, they are fantastic. Glittering Garland is also so easy to work with, two coats is all you need, the formula is excellent as well. No complaints. Gorgeous one, don't you think?

Thank you for reading!


  1. I so want it. :) And I know 'different' nails may feel uncomfortable, but I think yours look great now.

  2. This is such a pretty polish!! I'm really considering getting it.

  3. It looks great on you! I haven't got any of the polishes from this collection yet, but I will. And this is totally going to be one of the lucky few that will be allowed to move in with me :D

  4. Prečudovit je <3 In nohti so za moje pojme ravno prava dolžina :))

  5. Thank you all for your comments. :) I'm glad you don't mind my nail lenght changing all the time. And I actually like the lenght, I'm just annoyed with the pain or rahter the unpleasant feeling in my finger tips.

  6. I just love greens like this! I am laughing about how you had to have the bf lock up your computer! What's to stop you from unlocking it?

  7. They will grow quickly, don't worry. I love short neat nails...and the green...aaah, the green...

    Merry Christmas!

  8. Wow, Glittering Garland looks amazing on you!

  9. Fingers, well, he doesn't tell me the password, of course! :)

    Biberlee, yeah, I know, it's better already. :)

    Let's polish some nails, I know, it really is.

    Chaosophia, thank you!
