China Glaze: Tinsel Town (Let it Snow Collection)

Another Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend! Let me say, at the risk of sounding like everyone else out there, where has this year gone? Can it really be December already! I am shocked at how fast this year went for me!!! 

Today I have a color from China Glaze's Let it Snow collection. This is Tinsel Town which China Glaze describes as: – "Bold silver, metallic glitter and the perfect match for sparkling night on the town." The bases is not so much silver as it is charcoal if that's not a nit-picky distinction. It's jam packed with silver metallic glitter and then larger pieces of silver glitter as well.  This color is very similar to the Kardashian Colors by Nicole By OPI: Follow Me On Glitter except the Nicole by OPI version's larger particles are rainbow colored instead of just silver. They're incredibly close though.  The smaller particles of glitter in this one make it really sparkly and fun to wear.  It's a little darker than what'd I'd expect to see around the holidays but it's festive enough. 

I am surprised that I like how this one applied. Sometimes glitters are too gritty for me. This one is fine and I only needed two coats for the opacity shown.  Don't get me wrong it still has the glitter texture but it's nothing a good coat of Seche Vite can't tame! 

Overall I like this one and I think it works for any time of year. What say you?
