China Glaze Mommy Kissing Santa

   I think I might have my months confused.  Why you ask?  Well because this week is going to be dedicated to some holiday collection polishes.  These are the polishes I've had swatched and waiting to write up, but just haven't had a chance to because of work or various other reasons.
   First up is Mommy Kissing Santa from the China Glaze Tis the Season collection.   Mommy Kissing Santa is described as a deep cherry red shimmer.  And that's just what it is.

   Formula and application for MKS were both very nice.  Pigmentation was nice and only required two coats for even coverage and opacity.  I used 1 coat Seche Base, 2 coats MKS, and 1 coat Seche Vite.  Removal was pretty standard, no staining, no hard scrubbing required.  This is a very lovely dark red, but not so dark to be closer to black.

   I really like Mommy Kissing Santa.  It has nice depth and shimmer, can be worn to work with no problems yet still be fun and great for going out, and it's a color you can wear year round not just at the holidays.
   Because the Tis the Season was a holiday collection, you might have a hard time finding any of them in store anymore.  But they are still available online at various etailers.
