    omg so much glitter! love it!

  2. Except for Some Like It Haute, they look like they’ve all been done before. Mehh.

  3. Is Blonde Bombshell a suitable dupe for “Only Gold For Me”?

    • Jessica

      I would say no. I own “only gold for me” and they label it as a topcoat.. so when actually applying it, it isn’t an opaque gold glitter. There’s a lot of space in between each piece of glitter so you kind of have to strategically place each piece if you want to get an even look. Now my guess (based on the fact that I have 2 other glitter polishes from China glaze) is that “blonde bombshell” is going to apply much more opaque, plus there are more shapes of glitter in it.
      I would personally suggest going for the China Glaze one but if you’re looking for more of a little bit of glitter to go overtop another color go for “only gold for me”. Hope this helps :)

    Oh man, Lorelei’s Tiara looks amazing. I hope these are more on the opaque/full coverage side of things

  5. I can’t wait for these to hit my local Sally’s. I have been drooling over them since I saw the earliest peeks and press releases. *sigh* Sooo sparkly…

  6. I can’t wait to see the swatches!

  7. Except for the gold and red ones, I need all of these!

  15. Karyn

  17. Rosie

    Oh wow these are beautiful!!!! I LOVE GLITTER!!!!

  18. I’m soooo looking forward to this. China Glaze always has great holiday collections! :D

    I’ve been trying to be so good when it comes to polishes lately, well, since the fall Chanel 2011 release anyhow… And then China Glaze has to do Some Like it Haute. I can’t decide if I wait for swatches will they be out by the time I try to get one??? Or if I try to rush and get it will I be disappointed I spent the money?! Oh the deep quandry and crisis! Good thing I’m not in charge of something serious like monetary policy or industriual environmental regulations. My brain cells are too absorbed in deciding the ” to be or not to be” of polish purchasing.

    • November, but no definite date!

      • Jade

        I already got 2 online in the uk, how come we actually got one collection first?! haha no way complaining, but Marry a Millionaire and Love Marilyn are amazing! I just this second finished painting my nails with MaM and I am in love with how sparkly!

  21. Stephanie

    I LOVE Marilyn Monroe, one of my favorite actresses. I’ve seen all her movies. & I got so giddy because I saw the names & those are all form her movies. Its defiantly a must buy for me!

  22. I may need to round out my glitter polish collection with a few of these. I’m especially liking Material Girl and Some Like it Haute.

  28. Zozolina

  29. Erica

    I’m just wondering if anyone else has problems removing glitter nailpolish and if not what polish remover is best? Thanks!

  30. Stephanee

    Has anyone seen these at Sally’s or Ulta yet? I can’t wait!
    I have been stalking transdesign.com with no luck too.
    Christine, will you be reviewing them? I think with all the other brands doing the gltiter craze, there are def some dupes in this collection.

  31. M.

    Ooh! I think I want Material Girl!

  32. Kee

    I saw the collection today at my local nail supply store. I picked up Marry a Millinaire and Some Like It Haute. I am currently wearing Some Like It Haute right now over Sally Hansen Grey Area and I am in LOVE!!!! The holo glitter particles are very obvious and so pretty to look at!

  33. I grabbed four of these from Sally’s yesterday (they didn’t have the purple or the pink one :( Lorelei’s Tiara and Blonde Bombshell look amazing in person!

  34. Megan

    I cannot wait for these to hit the stores. I have to get all of them. I absolutely love Marilyn, so owning these isn’t an option, I have to get them!

  35. Brenda

    OMG!! I want them all! They look gorgeous :-)
