Have a Merry Christmas Eve with the China Glaze Ulta Exclusives!!

Wow, I can't believe it's Christmas Eve already!! I haven't done any wrapping yet, and I really need to start! I did make my chocolate chip cherry cookies yesterday though, so at least that's done! Today I have the China Glaze Ulta holiday exclusives for your viewing pleasure. China Glaze Fireside Glow and Ultamate Holiday are my two favorite polishes that China Glaze released ALL YEAR. I hope China Glaze and Ulta collaborate again next year, because DANG, these are amazing!!

China Glaze Fireside Glow is a gorgeous copper holo glitter polish in a clear base. I don't own anything remotely like this at all. I love copper colored nail polish and make-up, so Fireside Glow was destined to be a favorite of mine.

Fireside Glow is pretty easy to apply, so problems. It dries super fast since it is just glitter in a clear base. This is three coats and it's perfectly opaque. I think I could have used a second coat of top coat to make this really smooth, but it's not too chunky feeling. These glitter pieces are relatively small and fine, so it doesn't feel too gritty.

My pictures of Ultamate Holiday by itself came out strange. I was moving my hand around because I was afraid I wasn't capturing the holo effect. There was also a LOT of sun when I took these (surprising weather for CT in the winter). The sun really washed out the polish. I think my pictures of Ultamate Holiday atop Glittering Garland are more color-accurate. But I did capture the holo!!

This is also three coats and it's more opaque in person than in these pictures. Again, easy to apply and fast drying. I really love this polish and I'm actually wearing it as a full mani right now!

I have never purchased an Ulta exclusive OPI or China Glaze polish before. I usually find them to be kind of uninspired and/or dupes of existing polishes. China Glaze and Ulta REALLY knocked it out of the park with these two though!! They have changed my mind about these exclusives, and I'm already looking forward to next year's. Holo glitter polishes that I don't already own/have dupes for? YES!!! I am pumped that I found these two, and I encourage you to go to Ulta stat to find them.

I won't be around tomorrow, as I'll be with family all day! I hope you all have a
  Merry Christmas 
and I'll return Monday with a New Year's Eve Sephora by OPI look!

China Glaze Fireside Glow and Ultamate Holiday are available at an Ulta near you for a limited time!
