China Glaze Glittering Garland

I don't think I posted this yet. I am such a hoor for greens, and this one is gorgeous.

China Glaze Glittering Garland - Swapped for this on a whim, I really love it!!


There are already comparisons out there with China Glaze Emerald Sparkle, so I compared it to the polish that first came to my mind when I started seeing swatches of Glittering Garland.

Comparison: ChG Glittering Garland and Orly Meet Me Under the Mistletoe - I thought it was a dupe for MMutM, but it turns out they are a bit different. MMutM is cooler toned and needs 3 coats, whereas the ChG only needs 2 coats.


I am alarmed at how soon Christmas is. This is what happens the one year we don't get advent calendars!

  1. I was so sure that this and Orly were dupes! Can you say something about the wear of Glittering Garland? The Orly one doesn't last on me, so if Glittering Garland is better, I will definitely get it.

  3. I was certain they were dupes too! Haha, I was so surprised. Hmm, I didn't wear GG alone, but I wore it 2 coats with 1 coat ChG Party Hearty, and it lasted more than 7 days. The formula is more opaque than the Orly, and I think it applies nicer too... It's worth a try!!

  4. This polish really took me by surprise. Pretty in the bottle, but stunning on the nail!

  9. Such an amazing colour, both of of them. I wonder how they compare to Sally Hansen Project Runway?

  12. Green is not a color that's easy to pull off with my skintone. Funny thing is I finally caved and bought Orly' MMUTM this weekend, and wore it today. It worked out well, and I enjoyed it!
