China Glaze – Glittering Garland

Glittering Garland is from China Glaze holiday collection 2011 Let It Snow. Sofie said todays color should be christmas-y and that is what this color is. I’m actually wearing it right now and loving it.

Glittering Garland is a green jelly with gold shimmer particles. I’m wearing two coats and the opacity is great. It reminds me of christmas trees.

Glittering Garland er fra China Glaze julekollektion 2011 Let It Snow. Sofie sagde at dagens farve skulle være julet og det er lige hvad denne farve er. Jeg har den faktisk på lige nu og elsker den.

Glittering Garland er en grøn jelly med guld shimmer partikler. Jeg har to lag på og dækkeevnen er god. Den minder mig om juletræer.

  1. Hi!
    Thanks for your comment on our blog. I’m not from Madrid and seldom go there, but besides the places I mentioned on my Madrid haul post (Kiko, Primor, H&M), you can check any Mercadona supermarkets and take a look at their own line of low-cost cosmetics, which has some nice polishes. Some Bodybell as well as Juteco drugstores & perfumeries carry Essence and even Catrice cosmetics, which are very popular and purse-friendly. Check Subflava’s blog for un updated list of sales points.

    Beautik makeup chainstores opened their first store in Madrid recently. That’s a great place to get Essence and Catrice, as well as Nyx, Sinful Colours, Sally Hansen and Konad.

    Primor at the Principe Pío shopping mall (where you also have Kiko and Claire’s) has both Essence and Catrice.

    Douglas perfumeries in Spain also have some nice stuff. They have just released their own line of polishes and have several Chanel dupes for 4.95 EUR each/11ml. Some Douglas stores have started selling Catrice too.

    In addition, fellow blogger Teufeu gets her China Glaze polishes -for 4 EUR- from a beauty supply store in Madrid called BOB, located at the Parquesur shopping mall. Check this link:

    Cosmetics here in Spain are not as cheap as in other European countries (i.e. Germany), though. Perfumeries usually discount only high-end brands or if you spend a minimum of, say, 50 EUR.

    You should check store locators for places near your hotel and sights you intend to see. Btw, the Prado museum is free on Sunday (morning, I think).

    Hope the above helps.

  2. Parquesur shopping mall is located not in Madrid city but in neighbouring Leganés (public transport takes you there but may not be very convenient as will take some time getting there).
