Are You Ready for the Glam Finale?!

Press Sample

It's December, which means it's time for holiday partying, and all the glitter and glam that goes along with it. The new Glam Finale collection from China Glaze has a great mix of colors and finishes, and a few colors you'll want to wear all year long; they'll see from from Deck the Halls to Auld Lang Syne and everything (and party) in between! Hit the jump to see swatches and pick out your favorites!

Toast it Up

Champagne Frost

Why limit the bubbly to your libations, when you can have it on your nails?!

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: Frost, 2 coats to be opaque

Teal the Fever

Multi-sized Aqua & Green glitter in a clear base

Seriously, what's not to love? It's glitter, duh. It's like a mermaid exploded on your nails, and that's not really a bad thing, right?

Opacity scale (1-5): 1.5

Finish: Glitter, 3+ coats to be opaque

Don't Be a Snowflake

White cruelly base w/ holographic hex and microglitter

This totally screams blizzard to me, and makes me wish that instead of a 62° Christmas, that we'd be having a white one instead.

Opacity scale (1-5): 1.5

Finish: Glitter, 3+ coats to be opaque

Santa's Side Chick

Cranberry Satin with a hint of red shimmer

How scandalous! With a tinge of a coolness and a touch of red shimmer, this satiny racy red is perfect for Kris Kringle's side piece. :D

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: Satin/Matte, 2 coats to be opaque

Disco Ball Drop

Holographic Silver Glitter

Glitterrrrr! This one is calling out to be worn on NYE, and you'll be sure to be ultra glam when that ball drops! There is a mix of hex glitter and micro glitter, all silver holo, and all in a clear base.

Opacity scale (1-5): 1.5

Finish: Glitter, 3+ coats to be opaque

Queen of Sequins

Deep Raisin w/ multicolored micro glitter

Think sugarplums dancing, but better. This raisiny purple is pretty on it's own, but add in a bit of all the other colors in glitter form? Yes, please!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Finish: Shimmer, 2 coats to be opaque

Sparkle On

Multi-sized Red glitter

Woah Nelly, this is like Ruby Pumps' sexier, way more fashionable older sister. The different sizes in the bright red base makes this polish super bold, and I'm in love. I did have a hard time with this one on application - my bottle was extremely thick, but I'm hoping that it was a bad bottle. I added a little thinner and it was good to go. Warning though, this gal is a topcoat eating machine...however, it's 100% worth it. This polish was my favorite of the entire collection - SO gorgeous and sparkly!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Finish: Glitter, 2 coats to be opaque

New Year, New Boo

Deep midnight blue metallic

This color is like a velvety midnight sky, and it's gorgeous! This polish went on in one coat, but it was definitely on the thicker side because it was so pigmented.

Opacity scale (1-5): 4

Finish: Metallic, 1 coats to be opaque

As Good As It Glitz

Taupe-tinged Chrome

Man, I sure wish that China Glaze would bring back another collection like that amazing Khrome collection so many years ago - they do chrome well! As with most chromes, this was super pigmented, and went on in one easy coat.

Opacity scale (1-5): 4

Finish: Chrome, 1 coat to be opaque

Big Hair & Bubbly

Golden glitter

Glitter bomb dot com. Think champagne meets Christmas meets all the gold in Scrooge's vault. Multiple sizes of golden glitter give this one some depth.

Opacity scale (1-5): 2

Finish: Glitter, 3+ coats to be opaque

Slay Bells Ring

Graphite grey metallic

This one is the color of pencil lead, but with subtle sparks of gold, and pink and blue. Super pretty!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Finish: Metallic, 2 coats to be opaque

The Perfect Holly-Day

Deep Emerald Green matte w/ a hint of shimmer

I love this kind of green, it truly just says holiday time to me, especially with that shimmer! This one is a matte finish, which is gorgeous, but with a little topcoat? BAM! Welcome to sparkle city!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3.5

Finish: Matte, 2 coats to be opaque

I like that this collection has a mixture of tried and true favorites like greens & reds, but with a twist. I'm mildly, ok, SUPER obsessed with Sparkle On, but other favorites from this collection for me are Toast it Up, and Don't be a Snowflake. Which colors will you be grabbing for your stocking this year?
