Holiday Mani-Fest: China Glaze Champagne Bubbles

You want to talk about a nail polish that’s hard to photograph? Ladies and gentlemen, let me present: China Glaze Champagne Bubbles.

Another selection from the Let It Snow collection, Champagne Bubbles is a gold frost with small silver glitter. The application is a little brush stroke-y, but the color is vibrant and the glitter adds a little something special.

I wish the photos did Champagne Bubbles justice, but no matter how I photographed it, the light seemed to pick up on every surface imperfection, so you lose the lovely satiny gold effect. So I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it when I tell you: This polish is terrific in person.

This polish makes me wish I lived someplace where I could wear open-toed shoes during the holidays, because it really is lovely and festive, but I think I’d like this color better on my toes (say, peeping out from beneath some dark jeans) than I like it on my fingers. Although I like it plenty on my fingers.

As of Wednesday, there was one bottle of Champagne Bubbles left at my local Sally Beauty, part of a gift set. If you’re fortunate enough to live near an Ulta, you should be able to find it there (and tell them to open a location in Alaska!); China Glaze is also available online at TransDesign and 8ty8beauty.com. Anchorageites, check out Marie’s Beauty Salon and Supply, which had a great selection of China Glaze holiday polishes last time I was in.
