NOTD: Essie Parka Perfect

Hi everyone!  Merry Christmas Eve Eve!  I have a quick NOTD swatch of Essie Parka Perfect today. Essie calls it a shimmering alpine gray, I call it the perfect muted seafoam with shimmer.  Either way, it's perfect.  No lobster hands!!  I did have to use 3 coats but I think it was worth it.  I know my cuticles don't look the best but the color was too pretty not to post.

China Glaze Twinkle Collection for Holiday 2014

***Polish provided for review.  All opinions are my own.***

Hi!  Just in time for Christmas, I have the China Glaze Twinkle Collection to show you today.  Lots for fun glitters and the signature perfect CG reds.

Dancing and Prancing is a muted multi glitter with small hexes and microglitter.  It looks like it's mainly purple, copper and green which is a gorgeous combo IMO.


Define Good...is a shimmery deep red.  This is just perfection.  I've already worn this a few times this month and don't see myself stopping any time soon.


I'd Melt For You is a silver chrome.  This is a one coater!!  Not my style but I know people love it.  It also didn't show imperfections on the nail the way lots of chromes do.  Great formula.


Out Like A Light is a deep gray creme.  I love this polish.  So classy and clean.


Meet Me Under The Stars is a black and silver microglitter in a black jelly base.  I layered 2 coats for this swatch buy you could also do one thin coat over a color to make the black pop.  Very New Year's Eve!


No Peeking is a grape shimmer.  I love this muted purple and the shimmer is very pretty.  It can read a touch frosty...


Tip Your Hat is my #1 from this collection.  Red creme perfection.  LOVE!


De-Light is a gold and silver glitter with mini hexes and mini bars in a clear base.  Love this for a little extra sparkle.


Pine-ing For Glitter is a forest green microglitter.  I this is a really fun polish!  I layered it over a chocolate creme and loved the combo.  Understated but so pretty.


Feeling Twinkly is a cobalt microglitter.  I layered this over a baby blue creme so the cobalt would really show.  This combo is stunning!


Chillin with my Snow-mies is a large matte white hex glitter in a clear base.  I had to do a little fishing and some placement with the glitter but it was well worth it.  It really looks like big snowflakes.


December To Remember is such a unique color.  It's a muted blue with gold and pink tiny flakies.  It's way better in person.  I loved wearing this polish!



What did you think of the Twinkle Collection?  I love December To Remember and Tip Your Hat.  China Glaze always has the best creme formula and their holiday reds just never disappoint me.  I hope you are all enjoying your holiday celebrations, whatever they may be!!

The Twinkle collection consists of 12 polishes and you can see them all at China Glaze's website. You can purchase China Glaze nail polish at Sally's, Ulta, and many other salons.
