China Glaze Glittering Garland

China Glaze Glittering Garland is from the Let it Snow collection, China Glaze's Holiday 2011 offering. To be honest, I didn't find the collection all that interesting, but Glittering Garland is AMAZING. It's got gold and green glass-flecked glitter in a dark green jelly base. It's similar to Orly Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, but it's more opaque and more of a yellow-toned green, whereas the Orly is much more blue and closer to a pine green.

Glittering Garland is surprisingly opaque and glossy! This is 2 coats, no top coat:

Here it is in indirect light to give you a better idea of the type of shimmer that's in it:

So gorgeous! After wearing that orange, I needed something that was more in my comfort zone, and you can't get farther into my comfort zone than green and glass-fleck. Here's a closeup of the shimmer:

Thanks for looking!
