Nail of the Day: China Glaze "Ring in the Red"

Today's NOTD is China Glaze's Ring in the Red, from their holiday 2011 collection, Let It Snow. I LOVE THIS COLOR. No matter what, China Glaze always puts out a strong holiday collection each year that has actual holiday colors/names in it (yes, I'm looking at you, OPI Muppets AND Burlesque).

Ring in the Red is a classic Christmas red with micro and medium sized red glitter. It caught my eye because it reminded me so much of OPI Dear Santa (Winter Wishes 2009). This is much brighter/lighter/more red than the famous China Glaze Ruby Pumps.

natural light, 3 coats

This polish was really tricky to photograph, because my camera would focus on the actual glitter, taking away the overall beautiful sheen of the polish. I'm including a second photo where the camera isn't focused on my nails, so you can see the beautiful warm glow the polish actually has on my nails.


In my opinion, this shade is a holiday must. This will be what I wear Christmas Eve and Christmas, because to me, it is the epitome of what a Christmas nail polish should be!

Would you wear it?

P.S. More China Glaze, OPI, and Zoya Holiday 2011 swatches coming! I stocked up this weekend! :)

  12. I did 3 coats! 2 was fairly opaque but I wanted to make sure it was solid so I added a third :)

  13. Agreed!! Nice collections, but I think they should have been released at a different time or promoted differently. They aren't holiday at all!

  18. Hey! Well, I just wanted to tell you that your blog and your Youtube Channel are AMAZING. I'm from Chile(I speak spanish, sorry for the grammar mistakes) and I just found out that M.A.C just released the Scene Spotted colecction, in wich my city Santiago is involved. I know that you love blushes, and there is one of that collection called Mocha, is a really pretty plum-pink color. I was just wondering if you could try it out or any other product of that colecction, 'cause I cant, because M.A.C is really expensive here in chile(I think that a blush is like 35-40 dollars)
    Well, hope you do and you tell me if it whorths to boy it!
    xoxo

  20. This is gorgeous! I love red nail polish, especially for the holidays. I also agree that China Glaze has really good collections each year. I love that the names and colors actually tie into the whole holiday thing. Also, I'd love to see a nail polish haul! :)

  24. What do you have under Ring in the Red or do you have 3+ coats of it on? I just bought this color tonight at Sally's. Love it! but will have to put it on top of a red unless I want to use 3 or 4 coats.
