China Glaze - All Wrapped Up (Happy HoliGlaze Christmas Collection 2013)

China Glaze took the glitter theme a bit extreme this year in their Christmas Collection: there are only glitters and foils, no decent creme in sight!
I bought All Wrapped Up, the densely packed blurple micro glitter.
I love the colour of the tiny glitters: it looks like fountain pen ink, it's blue with a hint of purple (hence the blurple). It took me 2 liberal coats and a few touch ups to achieve this result and three layers of topcoat for that glasslike finish (2 x Essence Gel-look topcoat and 1 x China Glaze Fast Forward).

The result is very satisfying: it is sparkly and fun yet calm at the same time....
I am starting to like the micro glitters more and more: the sparkle like crazy but the glitters are not in your face. It is allways an even colour on the nails wich makes it easy to wear and not too carnavalesque.
I can see myself wearing this at Christmas or perhaps in between Christmas and the New Year.
