When I first got into nail polish I was only familiar with drugstore brands and OPI. I didn't know China Glaze existed. I started visiting the nail board on Makeup Alley (haven't been there in years) back then, and heard that a must have polish was Emerald Sparkle by China Glaze. Emerald Sparkle became one of my first China Glaze polishes, and definitely igniting my already growing love for nail polish.
Collection: Sleigh Ride Holiday 2008
Color: This is a beautiful squishy green glitter. This is so richly pigmented and sparkles beautifully. I haven't come across a green in recent years that can compares to the awesomeness of Emerald Sparkle.
Formula: This a nice and smooth formula. I do find this requires 3 coats for full coverage.
Price: Unfortunately, this has become a little harder to find, but not impossible fi you're will to splurge. If you search it on eBay you can find some listings in the $14-$15 range.
Overall: This is classic favorite for me, and it definitely has some sentimental value. That being said, it is a beautiful polish, and one I haven't seen replicated or beat in 6 years!
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters

Emerald Sparkle is one of only two nail polishes that have ever lived up to every good thing written about them - and exceeded them. I wish they'd bring this color back permanently - it's really that good. My favorite green ever!ReplyDelete
China Glaze makes so fine glitter polishes and this is a great example. I love that dark rich shade of pine green.ReplyDelete
