China Glaze Sleigh Ride, Holiday 2008

China Glaze came out with a Holiday 2008 collection called Sleigh Ride which are all VERY glittery Christmas colors. Not sure if these will be sold individually, but right now they are sold as a set on 8ty8beauty for $8.04. Pick ’em up while you can, they are well worth it! All these pics are taken in sunlight with no top coat.


Talk about bling. This is a super glittery silver polish and the name fits perfectly! I have on 3 coats here. An almost jelly like consistency this one is perfect for New Years. What’s even better is that it was super easy to remove for a glitter!

Ruby Pumps

A very awesome super glittered out red polish. Again with the nice jelly like consistency and 2 coats. This collection is making me anxious for Christmas and New Years already!
Emerald Sparkle

Here is my favorite of the bunch. I absolutely love this emerald green color and the sparkle is really fab! I cannot think of a better color to wear on Christmas day and you can bet your bottom dollar (hello Annie fans) that you will see pics of me on Christmas ‘morn with this color on!

Vamp it up Peeps!

    Wow! Where do you find the time to do so much swatching??

    I love all three of these colors. These look very “christmasey” to me. In indoor lighting does the green come off as bright or dark?

    Vampy Varnish

    Brookiebaby0506 – Well I try and do a bunch in one day and then save them up to post during the week. Otherwise I would go insane doing it all the time (and probably pass out from the fumes!). Emerald Sparkle comes off a little dark indoors, but definitely sparkely still. It’s not one of those that looks black indoors.

    Emerald Sparkle is one of the most beautiful greens ever! And I love greens!

    Don’t keep us waiting too long…

    What was the winning entry in the contest?

    Who was the lucky winner of the Metro Chic, after all?

    FYI, it seems to be back in stock on, for the rest of us…:)

    Hi Kelly!
    I did contact you from the email notifying me that I won. I also sent an email to you. I thought I’d better try leaving a comment. Thank you so much for choosing me to win Metro Chic. I look forward to receiving the polish. My address is: Lucy Pinto
    320 W Branch Ave Apt 47 E Pine Hill NJ 08021. Do you know of any online store that sells Nubar polish at a discount? There are about 10 polishes I’d like to buy. Thanks again. Lucy
