“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That seems to be the China Glaze adage for Holiday 2009 and I totally get it. I mean how much did we all freak out over Emerald Sparkle? It’s the ultimate in green glitter gorgeousness. And how many of you regretted not getting a backup?
Well China Glaze obviously “Loves You Snow Much” to bring it back with a brand new friend. They’ve expanded last year’s Sleigh Ride trio of Tinsel, Ruby Pumps and Emerald Sparkle to include the way apropos 5 Golden Rings. Check out the new kid on the block and refresh your memory as to why Emerald Sparkle is an utter must-have.
Like her sister Tinsel, 5 Golden Rings packs a whole lot of glitter love into a golden semi-sheer base. I wouldn’t ID it as one of their glass flecks, rather it has a foil-like quality with glitter particles that sparkle like crushed gems. It’s a shame the camera lens can’t capture its brilliance. It’s also more of a true yellow gold than I’m able to show. My only disappointment is the opacity. I used three medium-thick coats and still see my tips.
Tinsel is an explosion of silver glitter. Like 5 Golden Rings, it also exhibits a semi-sheer appearance after three coats.
Of course by now most of us are familiar with Ruby Pumps. The lone survivor of the original Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection, she really does Dorothy’s slippers justice. Long before all the other brands introduced their take on those iconic shoes, Ruby Pumps was already a fan fave.
Emerald Sparkle, what can I say about this gem that hasn’t already been said? I’ve had my original sample bottle for over a year and a half and it still makes me swoon-y on sight.
