China Glaze 2015 Cheers! Holiday Collection - My Picks

Hi!
**purchased

It's been a while since I've shared any nail polishes I've purchased on the blog, so I thought today I'd fix that.  I've got the polishes I slowly picked up from the 2015 China Glaze Cheers! holiday collection.  As I mentioned, I picked this up pretty slowly - over October, November and December, with most being on Black Friday (hello sale price!!).

I'm not sure how easy these polishes will be to find in store right now, but check Ulta and Sally's Beauty Supply.  They are probably still online at various e-tailers as well.  I've worn a few of these polishes but I've been so busy that I neglected to get any pictures before they started chipping or peeling off.  Oops.  Also, I surprisingly can't find any display pictures.  I'm not sure if I just didn't take a picture or if I somehow lost it when I was cleaning out my phone one day.

So let's see my picks from the China Glaze 2015 Cheers! holiday collection.
Brand Sparkin' New Year, Coal Hands Warm Heart, Ugly Sweater Party, 
Break the Ice, Bring on the Bubbly, Mix and Mingle

 Swatch wheel time!  The top picture is the same order as above, while the bottom picture is reversed.
Break the Ice and Bring on the Bubbly were one coat on the wheels (maybe a little dabbing just to disperse a little more).  All the rest are 2 coats.  Mix and Mingle is most color-accurate in the picture below.
Break the Ice and Bring on the Bubbly were very hard to get any kind of picture of on the wheel.  I've worn Brand Sparkin' New Year over Mix and Mingle and loved how it looked.  I'll have to recreate that to get some pictures of at some point.  I've worn Break the Ice over Essie Cashmere Bathrobe and enjoyed that look as well.

Break the Ice and Bring on the Bubbly slightly reminded me of a couple holiday SinfulColors glitters from the 2015 collection, but the SinfulColors polishes aren't nearly as complex so no dupes there.  I feel like Mix and Mingle might be similar to the purple - Looking Bootiful - from the 2015 China Glaze Halloween collection, but I don't have it to compare.  My guess is I probably have a similar shade in my SinfulColors stash drawer.  Brand Sparkin' New Year, Coal Hands Warm Heart and Ugly Sweater Party are the most unique to my collection.  The shards/shredded glitters in Break the Ice and Bring on the Bubbly (also has hex glitters in various sizes) also make them more unique in my collection, even though I have glitters that give off the same color and holo reflect look (silver and gold glitters that are all hex, have squares, etc).

Did you pick up any polishes from the 2015 China Glaze Cheers! holiday collection?
