China Glaze Tinsel Town

   Multi-size glitters seem to be everywhere right now.  Some have only one color, some have two or three, and others have a full rainbow of colors.  Personally, I love this trend.  The more glitter the better for me.  In their Let It Snow collection for Holiday 2011, China Glaze brought us three of these.  Today I'm going to show you Tinsel Town.

   Tinsel Town is silver hex and micro glitter in a charcoal base.  If you remember my review of It's Alive from China Glaze's Halloween collection, this is the silver version of that polish. The formula was a bit thick and kinda goopy, but a little nail polish thinner will probably fix that.  Tinsel Town dries matte so if you want lots of sparkle, a shiny top coat is necessary.  The matte look of the polish is very nice as well though.  However, because of the glitter the texture on your nail is rather rough, so to keep the matte look, I would actually recommend a nice thick coat of gelous and then a matte top coat to smooth out your nail.  I used top coat on my ring and index fingers only to try to show you the difference.  My base coat was China Glaze Strong Adhesion and I believe I used 2 coats of polish, but I forgot to right it down.  
   The sparkle and texture of this polish really freaked my camera out.  So I apologize for the less than great quality of these pictures.  They really were the best I could get though.

Shade/Indirect Sun


   I really liked this polish.  The formula was a little thick, but that's not overly unusual for dense glitters like this one.  On the nail, Tinsel Town reminds me of malachite jewelry, which I always loved when I was younger.  Please click on the photos to enlarge them and get a better look at the polish, especially the shade/indirect sun one.
