NOTD: china glaze Pure Joy

Try and tell me that this isn't the most gorgeous holiday nail polish you've ever seen.

I popped into Ulta the other day to bank in on BOGO NYX products as well as a 20% off of my total purchase coupon that I had. However, I am almost convinced that Ulta knew I was coming, read my emotions, and knew I was a nail polish hoarder (or should I say: WHOREder?); so they strategically placed the nail polish near the check out isle (I couldn't ignore it in that long holiday shopping line wait) and made sure that there was only one of these polishes left to make it feel like fate for me. 
You got me... 

Take the jump (like I did) to see more dazzling photos and verbal expressions of pure joy (see what I did there?)!

While Pure Joy is a stunner on its own, I started off my nails with a coat of bright red polish (O.P.I.'s The Thrill of Brazil) to make sure the the glitter really had a chance to shine. These polishes were MEANT for each other; the color of the red polish is spot on for the color of red glitter in china glaze's Pure Joy.

Since Pure Joy is nothing more than glitter on glitter on glitter, it ends up as kind of a scratchy feeling polish once dry but that's nothing that a nice thick top coat doesn't fix! It does, however, go on effortlessly and there is no need to worry about pieces of glitter sticking up off your nail.

I don't know how else to convince you to go out and nab this polish for yourself other than bombarding you with glitter p0rn. 
The fact that this is red and gold glitter as opposed to red and green makes this the perfect touch to anyone's nails for this holiday season without being oriented towards one religious tradition. 

What are you waiting for???
Don't you want your nails looking fabulously festive this holiday season?
Maybe I'm the only one... (even Galileo finds my obsession over nails a shnooze fest)...

Have you tried china glaze's Pure Joy polish?
Love it? Hate it?
What's your favorite polish for the holiday season?
Do share!!
