China Glaze Cranberry Splash

Happy Monday, you guys! :-)

This week, I'm excited to be bringing you some of the polishes from China Glaze's Holiday Joy Collection! To kick off the collection, I've got a beautiful and festive red to show you. Cranberry Splash is a slightly cool-toned medium, vibrant red with tons of red shimmers in a metallic finish.






Of the four reds in this collection, this is definitively the red that I was most looking forward to and it did not disappoint. It is a jewel tone that has the vibrant, glowing-from-within quality to it. On me, this leans just a bit cool with a blue undertone, resulting in a slightly raspberry red on the nails. The formula is smooth, even, and pigmented. Although this is a metallic, it isn't streaky at all. And I needed just two coats for opacity.

You can find Cranberry Splash at your local nail salons and at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty for a retail price of $7 for 0.5 fl oz.

  4. This is real beautiful but... Isn't it just like Drive In and Xtream Thrush?
    *sigh* why can't China Glaze really renew something for the holidays? :-(

  9. It's funny, I'm always more about red cremes than metallics, but now that it's December I think I need a flashier red. ;) How do you think this one compares to Zoya Elisa?

    1. Sorry for the delay, Liesl. I had to wait until I'm home to check. So the two are close, but not the same. Elisa is a few shades lighter and brighter than Cranberry Splash. Cranberry Splash leans cooler and more raspberry while Elisa looks to be more of a true red. Hope that helps. :-)
