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.



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.


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!!


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?


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.


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!


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!!!


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.


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!
