Winter 2012 Nail Polish Collections

We're only one week away from Thanksgiving, and you know what that means...winter nail polish collections have been and are currently being released!

China Glaze has a few Winter/Holiday 2012 collections. I've listed them and their promotional pictures below:

The Holiday Joy collection will be released in mid-November, so you can find it in your local beauty/drug stores now!

China Glaze also released "13 seasonally-inspired gift sets" with the collection, which contain 2-5 full sized nail polishes each. The sets range from $8-$21 and those with a smaller number of polishes come with stocking stuffers. Below are the thirteen sets:

The Cirque Du Soleil Worlds Away collection is inspired by the Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away movie coming to theaters in the United States on December 21, 2012. The collection's official release date is on December 1, 2012, but I've read on some blogs that people have seen the collection in-stores since mid-November.

The Glimmers collection will be released in December 2012. China Glaze calls these "collage glitters" and all of the polishes contain reflective glitter with multi-sized and shaped particles.

Lastly (for China Glaze), is the color-changing Tranzitions collection, which will be released in December 2012. The polishes are supposed to change color once the special top coat - provided with the collection - is applied.


L to R Without Top Coat: Metallic Metamorphosis,  Duplicityy, Split Perso-Nail-ity
Modify Me, Altered Reality, Shape Shifter
L to R With Top Coat: Blue Gray, Deep Mint Green, Deep Dusty Pink
Indigo, Chrome Turquoise, Deep Blue Purple

Essie's Leading Lady collection is not what you would think of when imagining winter nail polishes. However, I like the bright hues, and thinks it's a nice change to the typical dark colors you see this time of year. The collection was released in mid-October.

The OPI Skyfall Holiday 2012 collection celebrates the 50th anniversary of James Bond, and is "Inspired by the film's blend of glamour and danger [...] these lacquers capture the film's sophisticated and glamorous look." The collection contains cremes, glitters, shimmers and metallics. It was released in October 2012.

Similar to China Glaze's 'mini-sets,' ORLY has three gift sets to accompany this collection. The sets are $12.75 each, and contain three full sized lacquers along with either a satin face mast, lace bag or black lace gloves. The gift sets are below:

L to R: Halo, Devil May Care, Torrid

L to R: Devil May Care, Miss Conduct, Unlawful

L to R: Halo, Miss Conduct, Angel Eyes

The Zoya Ornate Winter 2012/2013 collection is a combination of "six liquid metals (foil finish), one silver holographic/bar glitter and three holographic crystal beauties." This is the first time Zoya has released holographic polishes! Available in beauty/drug stores now.
