China Glaze Your Present Required

Hi, you guys! Happy weekend! We've been having a string of sunny days here (really unusual for this time of the year when it's usually rainy), so I've been out and about soaking up the sun. :D

Today, I've got a fun glitter from the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection to share with you. Your Present Required is a colorful mix of small to medium hex glitters in the colors blue, purple, peach, white, and gold all in a sheer base.






I really like the combination of colors in this glitters. It's a little unusual, but they look really great together. The application is a little odd. It's hard to get the glitters to stay in place on the nails as you stroke from cuticle to free edge. They kind of clump together and have a tendency to get dragged along with the brush. I ended up using short dabbling motions, which really helped in getting the glitters to stay in place. I did one coat over Mingle With Kringle, and I just love the way they look together. The gold base really sets off the colors in this glitter. :)

You can find Your Present Required at your local nail salons and at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty for a retail price of $7.50 for 0.5 fl oz.

    1. Hehe good catch! I think they had a misprint. The official press release said "your", which makes more sense than "you". :) Yay I'm really glad you like this!

  3. Love it. I think it would look really good as a top coat on a dark blue or black base too :)

    1. Hehe good eye! I'm surprised anyone noticed that. I'm guessing they had a misprint. It says "your" on the official press release, which makes more sense. :) Thanks, I'm really glad you like this. I'm an especially big fan of the peach glitters too. :)

  10. It's very pretty, but for me to buy it the glitters should have been smaller :)

  13. This is a pretty strange mix! The colours just seem a little incongruent. But it's festive and super glittery at least :p I like the gold glitter that seems to make up the majority of the base.

    1. I really like this glitter too... the combination of colors in here is really interesting. :) It's really unusual for it to be so sunny here this time of the year. But it looks like that trend is ending starting tonight lol. Bummer about the lack of sun where you are... maybe my sun is moving over to your neck of the woods. <3
