China Glaze Let It Snow for Holiday 2011 Swatches, Photos & Review
Let It Snow is the new holiday 2011 collection from China Glaze. It features twelve shimmery, glittery festive colors.
I was going to break this post down into two parts, but decided to just do them all at once since I know you have been asking about them.
It’s a great collection with some real beauties inside!
Icicle is a silver foil polish. It may not be the most unique polish in the world, but it’s perfect for a holiday collection I think. This dries super fast, applied with no streaks and you could get away with just one coat. I used two though.
Champagne Bubbles is a warm gold metallic with silver glitter chunks. I love this color because it’s not like any other glitter I can think of and it’s so festive! Good formula with just two coats getting the job done.
Snow Globe is a glitter that was released awhile back, but still perfect for this collection. The glitter is iridescent and both small round pieces and larger hexagonal ones. It’s in a clear base. It’s pretty thick, but looks cool, especially layered. I used two coats.
Poinsettia is a classic bright red sheer creme. It’s super red, super shiny and looks like a candy apple. It’s not overly sheer, I used two coats here. Maybe not that unique, but it’s a classic red for the holidays.

Just to show you what Snow Globe looks like layered here it is over Poinsettia.
Holly-Day is a medium holly green creme. This is a gorgeous green color and again, perfect for holidays (I sound like a broken record). Lovely and perfect coverage in just two coats!
Ring In The Red
Ring In The Red is a red glitter set in a red base. The base is a sheer red and the glitter is red micro-glitter and red slightly larger round glitter. I like that the base had a color, even though it was on the sheer side. This was three coats.
Twinkle Lights is a glitter set in a clear base. The glitter colors are gold, red and green and micro-sized. I love this combo, it could not be more perfect! This was two coats.
Winter Berry is another sheer red creme color. This one is a deeper and slightly less bright red than Poinsettia. This was two coats.

Here you can see how cool Twinkle Lights is layered. Love it!
Blue Year’s Eve
Blue Year’s Eve is a super shimmery glass flecked blue. It’s deep yet bright at the same time. No issues with the formula except I should have used three coats instead of two because the base is a bit sheer.
Velvet Bow is a deep wine colored red creme. I did have some issues getting the coats even with this color for some reason. I used three coats and there was still some patchiness.
Glittering Garland is THE belle of the ball here. It’s a deep emerald green jelly with green-yellow glitter. AMAZING. So pretty, unique and the formula was like butter. This was just two coats.
Tinsel Town is a smokey charcoal grey/silver glitter. Gorgeous! I totally adore this color, it’s my second favorite one here. The glitter almost looks to be blue in certain lighting. The coverage is amazing, not sheer and I only needed two coats.
Great collection! The ones I think are the most unique and interesting are Champagne Bubbles, Snow Globe, Twinkle Lights, Glittering Garland, Blue Year’s Eve and Tinsel Town.
