China Glaze Poinsettia

A. Ma. Zing.

That, in a nutshell, is Poinsettia.


My polish angel, Nory, sent Poinsettia to me in our December swap because she knows my love for all things red polish.  But this is just not your average red polish.  From the China Glaze Let it Snow Collection, Poinsettia has a really magical quality that makes me giddy when I wear it.


Poinsettia embodies this season's red: jolly, luscious, and whimsical.  The color of snow berries, this semi-jelly is a juicy red with a slight coral pink undertone that applies smoothly and beautifully.  On my fair skin, I really see this color pop, quite like the snow berries below.

So with that picture and description in mind, how perfect is this red for the holiday season?


While I can see myself wearing this CG to death through spring and summer, there's something about this red that resonates this winter.  Ugh, I can't wait to wear this again!  

How do you ladies feel about this red?  Same ol', same ol' or something special?
