China Glaze Holiday Joy 2012 Collection: Part 1…
Merry Berry is a red-purple creme. Goes on even in 1 coat and is fully opaque in 2 coats.
With Love is an orange based red creme. Again it goes on even in 1 coat and 2 coats make it fully opaque.
Cranberry Splash is a gorgeous red shimmer, this base color is very close to With Love but with shimmer (which makes it glow!).
Pure Joy has red micro and gold glitter in a clear base. To achieve full opaque coverage took 3 coats. This color is the same as Love Marilyn except gold instead of silver glitter.
Blue Bells Ring is a stunning blue foil. I’m not a fan of blues but this one is just beautiful, it’s bright and glowy perfect for winter! This color is opaque in one coat but to make the color more intense I recommend 2 coats.
Overall: I love this collection. The colors are very easy to work with, they all have great formulas (the cremes are on the thin side but still very easy to work with). Most color only need 2 coats to reach full opacity (the glitter took 3).
Price: You can buy these colors individually for $4.25 or prepackaged in adorable giftsets starting at $7 to $17.50 depending on how many colors are in the set at Stixie.com
