China Glaze Holiday 2018 The Grinch Collection

Happy GRINCH Day!!! I’m extra excited about today’s post. When I heard China Glaze was collaborating with The Grinch movie, I was all in!!! I loved Dr. Seuss and The Grinch when I was a kid so this collection is one that’s close to my heart.

 

Straight from the top of the naughty list, The Grinch takes over China Glaze® this holiday with a limited-edition lacquer collection.  Stealing inspiration from the wonder of Who-ville, DR. SEUSS’ THE GRINCH x China Glaze® collaboration will make your heart grow three sizes with a transformative palette of eight frosty shades. Guyssss these polishes are awesome!!! I am so grateful China Glaze sent over this amazing PR package with all 8 shades and 3 nail tips kits!

I can already tell the green is going to be a fave of mine! Let’s take a look at each one.

 

GRINCHWORTHY

This is a phenomenal apple green glitter. The formula is great on this one! Thick, but manageable. Super opaque in 2 coats.

 

Gosh look at all this glitterrrrr!!! It’s the most fabulous and perfect GRINCH polish ever.

RESTING GRINCH FACE

This is a festive glitter filled with red, green, blue, gold, and holo large hex + micro glitters. I die with these names. They are so cheeky!! I wanted to see how this would look on it’s own so this is 3 coats.

You can also use this as a topper over a nude or white polish. I really like it on it’s own though. Super festive for the holidays!!

HO! HO! NO.

This is a ruby red filled with gold flitter. Hahahaha! Typical grinch! The formula on this was great. Applies well and is opaque in 2 easy coats.

This dries semi-matte so you will need a glossy top coat. Isn’t red and gold the perfect holiday combo?

WHO WONDER

This is a bright magenta pink with purple + gold micro glitter. I LOVE!!!! I didn’t think I was going to like this one but look at this GLOW!

It’s perfect in 2 coats but don’t over load your brush because it is a little watery.

YOU’RE A MEAN ONE

Mr. Grinch…. Ha! This is a deep plum with bronzy shimmer. Delicious! Super easy to apply. Opaque in 2 coats.

This polish is perfect for Winter!

DELICIOUSLY WICKED

This is a frosty icy blue filled with tons of silver and holo glitter. The formula is good. Ok so I normally don’t like frosty polish at ALL, but this guy is different. This is 2 coats.

What saves this polish from being ugly and mehhh is all of the glitter. It hides all of the brushstrokes and looks marvelous!!!

LUKEWARM WISHES

This is a pearlized with iridescent shimmer. Mehhh. Now I’m feeling like a grinch. This one is super sheer. Not my fave. Here is 3 coats.

It does look super Wintery but not my fave type of polish.

MERRY WHATEVER. 

This is an amazing champagne gold glitter. YUMMY! Love this one. Super festive. Perfect for NYE! This is 2 coats.

The holo glitter is my fave! Stunning!!!

 

DR. SEUSS’ THE GRINCH x China Glaze® collection also includes three Designer Nails Tip styles for Grinchworthy nails on-the-go (MSRP: $9.99 each)

 

These are so easy to apply and look so cool!
