China Glaze Mingle with Kringle Nail Lacquer
China Glaze Mingle with Kringle Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Mingle with Kringle Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “fierce gold with aluminum-like mirror finish.” It’s a vibrant, rich yellow gold with a metallic, foil-like finish and larger copper flecks of sparkle. It was fully opaque after applying two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too then, so the polish applied evenly and smoothly without pooling along the edges. Zoya Kerry (P, $8.00) is yellower. Chanel Gold Fingers (LE, $27.00) is darker. ORLY Flare (P, $5.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Be Merry, Be Bright Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “multi-magenta purple glitter.” It consists of violet and fuchsia glitter in three sizes ranging from small to medium and hexagon in shape. The glitter is suspended in a clear base, so it is best as a layering top coat. I applied two coats of the polish alone on my thumb nail to show the density of the glitters, and then I applied one coat over Mingle with Kringle. It does need to be tugged into place to a degree, as the glitters sometimes concentrate in one area. KBShimmer Would Jubilee It? (P, $8.75) is the only one I have that is similar, but it also has light blue and navy blue glitter in it. See comparison swatches.

All Wrapped Up Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “midnight purple and blue glitter.” It’s a medium-dark, muted purple with lighter purple and silver micro-glitter. It had a textured finish, though not as “sandy” as some. It had mostly opaque coverage after two coats. The formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it didn’t seem troublesome when I applied it, but there are a few areas that look bald. L’Oreal The Reign of Studs (LE, $6.99) is less blue-based. China Glaze Skyscraper (LE, $8.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Your Present Required Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “multi-sized and multi-colored glitter.” It’s a mix of light blue, medium blue, navy blue, lavender, copper, and gold glitters in small and medium and in circular and hexagon shapes. It could have used more density, as even two coats of it alone was rather sparse. I ended up needing to apply two coats to all nails to get a better effect. China Glaze Pizzazz (LE, $8.00) is finer and brighter. See comparison swatches.

I typically get a week of wear with China Glaze’s formula with minor tip wear but no chips.

    Omg I love mingle with kringal ………. I dint see them at target today ….. where did u buy these from?

  2. I have Mingle with Kringle on my nails right now for Thanksgiving & I love it! It is probably my new favorite nail polish.

  3. I like both nail polishes best with the glittery top coat on top :-) I just really have a soft spot for glitter top coats! Too bad they’re suck a pain in the butt to remove…

  4. J

    Mingle with Kringle is definitely a dupe of Zoya Ziv more than any of the other near-dupes listed!

  5. I love Mingle with Kringle and Your Present Required. MwK is an amazing gold varnish for nail art, as it’s well pigmented and dries quickly. YPR is absolutely stunning layered over China Glaze’s Liquid Leather. Wear time for me is excellent with these polishes.
