China Glaze Holly-Day - swatches and review

I have wanted this polish ever since I saw Sminkan's beautiful pictures of it last winter! And now I've actually had it for quite some time ;) but not worn it. Just looked at it from time to time. Touched it. Stroked it. ;) Perhaps you know how it is... You've had this lemming and then you've gotten it and you are a bit afraid to get disappointed... Recognize this line of thinking...? ;)
Anyway, here it is, the beautiful Holly-Day! Just in time to join Green Wednesday :)


Type of polish: Cream.

Colour: A dark holly green. (Holly is Järnek in Swedish.)

Collection: China Glaze Let it Snow! Collection Holiday 2011

Opacity: Very good! This is two coats.

Formula: Excellent! A nice formula which is easy to apply.

Brush: Good! A bit thin for my likening, but still surprisingly easy to work with.

Shine: Super shiny on its own, but I have one coat of Seche Vite top coat in these pictures. 

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Accurate! What you see is what you get ;)

Grade: 5++++/5 :D

I LOVE this polish! The color is just the perfect dark green and it's soooooo shiny!! The formula is great too! If you are into greens I'd say this beauty is a must!!

How do you like Holly-Day?
Do you know the feeling of dragging out on trying a lemming...? ;)


  1. What a cool shade of green! I'm such a sucker for green polishes, and this darker green definitely looks like a unique one.

    Also, I nominated you for the Sunshine Award! =D

    1. Hallo pet! I have a lot of dark greens too ;) but there's something special about this one! It's so juicy for a dark green! You really should try it!
      Puh! So glad to hear there is someone like me regarding lemmings :D I sometimes think I'm crazy for acting this weird ;)
