While visions of sugar plums painted on their nails...


It's Monday mani : D  and today we have 'Sugar Plums', another lacquer from China Glaze's 'Tis The Season To Be Naughty or Nice 2010 Collection.

Sugar Plums indoors 


Sugar Plums is a deep burgundy wine shade with micro multicolored glitter.

Too cold to go outside and take picture, so I just drew the curtain  :)  Sugar plums in sunlight...kind of  :P

This nail polish only needs two coats to achieve opacity.

Tried to capture the sparkly goodness :) 

Sugar plums is the kind of nail lacquer that needs to be seen in person (and in direct sunlight) in order to admire it for all its sparkly loveliness.

In this photo, you can see the gritty bumpy finish.

One thing I was put off by was the texture of Sugar Plums once it dried; a semi-matte, bumpy(looks as if you have air bubbles in your polish) and gritty finish. An industrial strength shiny top coat is mandatory with this one!

So what are some of your favorite burgundy wine polishes?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

    By the way, if you're interested in getting this polish, one of the websites that I buy some of my china glaze polishes from is foryoursalon.com and they still have it :). Also, I got an email from them yesterday and they are offering 25% off china glaze. Here is the coupon code 11save25 offer expires 12/31/11. :)

  4. I will take advantage of that coupon code! hehe, there are a few nail supply stores in my area that sell directly to salons so I get my nail polishes there, they have a lot of opi and essie polishes and they sell for $4-5 a bottle but only one of them carries china glaze and its a very limited selection.

  6. I'm glad I can help out and whenever I get any discount offers or coupon codes, I'll post them :)

    Everything is soooooo overpriced here. Opi cost over $20 Dollars here...so I just order everything from the states.
