Nail of the Day: China Glaze Jolly Holly

Today's Nail of the Day is another polish from China Glaze's Holiday 2010 collection, 'Tis the Season to be Naughty or Nice. "Jolly Holly" is a frosty, dark green that is a little more yellow than your traditional Christmas tree color, in my opinion. It's more of a warm green than a forest green.

Now to be honest, the only reason I picked up this color was so that I could layer China Glaze's "Party Hearty" (a chunky red/green/gold glitter) over the top for ultra-Christmas-bling nails. However, after painting the first coat, which is all you really need by the way, I grew very fond of the way it looked on my hands. I went ahead and painted a second coat, just in case the lighting I was in covered up any sheer parts.

natural light, 2 coats

By the way, I love how all of their holiday polishes this year have silver tops!

Would you wear it?
