China Glaze Winter Holly Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Winter Holly Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “gold-flecked dazzling green glitter.” It’s a mix of fine gold and emerald green glitter suspended in a clear base. When applied, there appears to be a few flecks of other colors as well, but it is predominantly gold and green glitter particles. I couldn’t think of a dupe (but we’re definitely building up the glitter polish gallery!). Even when it’s layered over black, it’s quite different compared to last year’s Glittering Garland.  It seems simple at first, but depending on the breadth of your glitter polish stash, comes across as more complex when applied.

Orange and Yellow Eyeliners: Swatches, Dupes, and Comparisons

It might be safe to say that orange and yellow are the most under-represented colors within the eyeliners that I have! I only found two orange eyeliners, neither similar to the other, and one yellow.  It really makes me want to hunt down others now!
