Nail of the Day: China Glaze Twinkle Lights

Today's NOTD is another festive shade from the China Glaze holiday collection this year, called Twinkle Lights. This gold, red, and green glitter reminds me of tinsel and is perfect for the holiday season. It is a tricky polish to photograph (as are most glitters), because the camera focuses on the individual glitters and not the overall effect. I will say that in person, this is much more striking! It is also pretty opaque, 2 coats had almost completely solid coverage, but I added a third just in case.

natural light, 3 coats

This photo shows a bit more of the gold effect it gives.

What is your favorite polish to wear during the holidays?

  2. oh man this is one of my most wanted polishes of the moment! do you use two coats of topcoat on top of glitters like this? or do you leave it semi-gritty? I'm always curious to see what others do.

  3. you should try layering it under a red polish or a white one (only one coat so you can see the color underneath) it looks amazing!!!!

  13. Can you recommend an easy way to take off glitter polishes? I am new to them and the two times I've worn them recently I've had to literally peel them off because my polish remover didn't do anything :/

  24. 100% acetone nail polish remover. I got some at my local CVS. It was a CVS brand and it said it was, "Professional Nail Polish Remover." It takes glitter nail polishes off so easily! It is very harsh though since it's 100% acetone. It also dries up very fast on a napkin or tissue, definitely use a cotton ball.
