China Glaze Holiday 2010 – Party Hearty and Something Sweet

China Glaze Party Hearty

As soon as I saw pictures of Party Hearty from the China Glaze Holiday 2010 collection, I started plotting what I wanted to layer it over.  It’s a very dense glitter, with large red hexagonal glitter, medium green glitter and small silver glitter.  I went on a search for the perfect, candy-ish pink to use as a base, so that all of the glitter would pop.  I wanted something pastel, but not too soft, something that had a bit of artificial-food-coloring starkness.

After some research, I ordered Something Sweet from the China Glaze Up & Away Collection from Spring 2010, a pastel pink.  This was all months before the Holiday collection was released.  I was finally able to combine these two polishes this past weekend, and I’m so happy with how it turned out!  Something Sweet is sugar-y pink and has an almost lilac hint to it; it reminds me a little bit of Little Debbie snack cakes or frosting.  It’s not baby pink or Barbie pink, it’s a little more blue than many pastel pinks.  And Party Hearty is so pretty over it–this looks like Christmas candy with crinkly packaging,  sweet and girly.  Mission accomplished!
