Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I have the China Glaze Seas And Greetings Holiday 2016 collection for you!
Seas And Greetings Holiday 2016 features twelve new shades in a variety of finishes. The collection isn’t your typical holiday one featuring reds, golds, silvers and greens, but rather an escape from the cold winter months into warmer, beach-y weather. I love this idea because haven’t we already seen tons and tons of those aforementioned colors already?
Let’s check it out!
Snow Way is a white with iridescent pink pearly shimmer. This one is a wee bit brush stroke-y, but still beautiful with three thin coats. In case you are wondering about this compared to their shade Pearl Jammin’ from the fall collection, they are not the same. That one is a grey base with heavy fiery pink shimmer and this is a white with a pink pearl/shimmer.
Sand In My Mistletoes is a light peach creme. This is three thin coats.
Eat, Pink, Be Merry is a pale rose pink with pink shimmer. This is three coats.
Partridge In A Palm Tree is an aqua green with a matte finish. This is two coats. I prefer this one with a top coat (see below)!
Good Tide-ings is a medium lavender creme. This is two coats.
Warm Wishes is a watermelon pink with silvery shimmer. This is two coats and a little brush stroke-y.
Tis The Sea-sun is a bright coral creme. This is two coats.
Seas And Greetings is an amethyst purple with pink shimmer. This one is watery and thin to start but builds up beautifully with three coats.
Joy To The Waves is a medium blue with heavy yellow shimmer. This is three thin coats as it’s a little sheer at first.
The More The Berrier is a metallic hot pink magenta with pink shimmer. This is two coats.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Starfish is a pale sea-green glitter. This is sheer at first but does build up after three coats to be pretty full-coverage.
Let’s Shell-ebrate is a purple and gold glitter with various sizes/shapes of glitter in a clear base. This is two coats and pretty full coverage.
Not what you expect for a holiday collection, right? I love it. There are quite a few unique and really pretty shades here. My personal favorites are Snow Way!, Good Tide-ings, Seas And Greetings and Joy To The Waves.
There are also various gift sets featuring certain shades as well as the collection in their gel formula, which is exclusive to Sally Beauty Supply. I bought this collection from HB Beauty Bar where the twelve piece set is $62.00 or individual shades are $5.25. They frequently have 15% or 20% off codes so follow their Instagram for any sales!
Which of these shades are you digging?
