China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection Review/Swatches & GIVEAWAY!

Good morning all and Happy Veterans Day to all of you veterans out there! Today I have swatches of the newest China Glaze collection, Happy HoliGlaze, for you. I have also teamed up with China Glaze to give away five (5!!) sets of this collection to my readers! You can enter at the bottom of this post! :) This collection is made up of twelve polishes. There is also a limited edition polish called Travel in Colour that I have included in this post that is not part of the collection, but will be available at the same time.

There's Snow One Like You is interesting, to say the least. I've read tons of negative reviews of this one but honestly, I think it's pretty neat. I could see it being used in some winter nail art, although it probably doesn't have many more uses than that. It's very lumpy; what you see here is two coats and it was relatively hard to control.

Santa Red My List is a stunning reddish pink foil. Seriously, this polish is so amazing. This is two coats and they applied perfectly.

Just BeClaws is a gorgeous shimmery red that was perfect in two coats. Another red that I love! What's going on?!

Travel in Colour is a limited edition shimmery, iridescent top coat. This is one coat over Just BeClaws and you can see how it shifts the base color. It would be amazing over darker shades as well!

Mingle With Kringle is a luxurious gold foil polish. This is a bit too yellow to look good with my skin tone, but it's still gorgeous! This is two coats.

Put a Bow On It is made up of fuchsia microglitter. This is two thick coats and if you look closely, you can still see some bare spots near the tips of my nails. I would recommend either layering this over a similar base color or doing three careful coats.

So Blue Without You is another stunning foil finish, this time in a striking shade of sky blue. This is two coats.

Elfin' Around is yet another stunning foil finish. I just love these! This one is a coral red shade and was perfect in two coats.

This is Tree-Mendous is similar to Put a Bow On It in that it is made up of microglitter, but this time it's different shades of green. This is two coats, but again, I would recommend layering this over a similar base color or using three coats for complete coverage.

All Wrapped Up consists of blue/purple microglitter. This is two coats, but yet again, I would recommend layering this over a similar base color or using three coats for complete coverage.

Your Present Required is a fabulous glitter topper consisting of multi-colored glitter in a variety of sizes. I layered one coat here over Zoya Kennedy. LOVE this one!

Bells Will Be Blinging is a mixture of blue, gold, and white glitter in a clear base. This is one coat over Zoya Kristen.

Be Merry, Be Bright is a mixture of purple and magenta glitter in a clear base. I love this one too! This is one coat over OPI My Vampire's Buff.

These polishes are available now wherever China Glaze is sold, but how would you like to win your very own set? Scroll down to enter in the Rafflecopter widget to win one of five sets graciously provided by China Glaze! Two things to note: China Glaze will be shipping the prizes directly to the winners (I do not have the five sets in my possession) and because of shipping regulations, they are only able to offer these prizes to US residents (sorry!!).
