China Glaze Sugar Plums

Oh geez, I absolutely love this color.  China Glaze Sugar Plums from the 'Tis the Season to be naughty and nice collection (okay seriously? Longest name ever....) is listed simply as a plum shimmer but this is nothing but simple.  Along the same lines of Grape Crush and Crystal Ball, this is a color with tons of tiny multiglitter, but isn't a holo.  Actually, I'd LOVE for someone to do a Sugar Plums/Crystal Ball comparison!  Anyway back to this.

I used a base of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Sugar Plums and a top coat of Seche Vite.  I absolutely love this color and really didn't want to take it off.  The formula was excellent and it was so super shiny.

Rawr - look at that dark plum goodness.  In the sun, you don't see the glitter as much but it's just a nice vampy color.

Sadly the glitter is pretty gone in the shade as well but hold up, I got a sunny blurry shot.

BAM!  Multicolored goodness.  Mmmm.  Love it!  This is a must have color for me - have you picked up yours yet?

  1. This one is just so pretty! The little holo pieces are amaaaazing! Normally this kind of plum I would pass up, but I can't wait to buy this one!

  2. Ohh I love this one! Very rich and plummy ! I have so many must-haves... I wouldn't know where to start!

  3. Oh darn...I passed this one over thinking it was just another wine-ish color...else I would have done that comparison for you!

    *commences eBay hunt*

  4. Actually it's your fault I own both of the aforementioned polishes....not that I'm complaining or anything! :D

  5. I really love this one. It's so pretty.

  6. So, I'm pretty much swiping that for use with my Holiday manicure... Just sayen'!

  7. OMG! This is an awesome color! I am definitely purchasing a bottle or two. It reminds me of OPI La Boehme, which I loved, loved, loved but alas, it is too expensive to purchase anymore. This is a wonderful surprise substitution, plus I love that it has a bit more purple tones than La Boehme did. So glad I saw it today at my nail tech's!
