China Glaze 'Tis the Season to be Naughty or Nice part III

Ok...I FINALLY finished swatching this collection, so I guess it's about time that I post it, right?

Be sure to check out the links to Part I and Part II if you haven't seen them yet.

Sugar Plums

Sugar Plums is one of my favorites from this collection, and no matter what, my pictures don't do it justice.  This is a burgundy shimmer with holo glitter throughout.  You can't see the holo unless you're under bright light...it looks more like silvery glitter in ordinary light.  It can look a bit bubbly/rough without topcoat (which I'm wearing in these images...you just can't tell).  This is the second set of photo's I took, because I didn't wear topcoat in the first set and it looked like I buffed with sand paper, although the lighting and colors were better...I just can't win!  This is 3 coats, btw.

Peace on Earth

Ok...excuse me a minute while I toot my own horn and say, I think these images look pretty good!  :)
Peace on Earth is an olive green color with gold shimmer...bordering on a frost.  It is very pretty, and looked better on me than I thought it would.  This is 3 coats.

Little Drummer Boy

Ahhhh...my kind of color.  Little Drummer Boy is a deep navy blue shimmer.  It's not one of those so-dark-it-looks-black blues...Very deep and rich, and the pigmentation is fantastic!  This is 2 coats!  I usually can never get away with that!
Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells is an antique-gold foil.  I'm not sure I like this color on me...it's pretty, but not me.  I have 3 coats on in these images.

Only 4 to go!  Stay tuned...I'll get that up in the next day or two.  :)
