Yes, it’s a bold claim to make, but I stand by it. I have waited all year to use this polish (clearly I can only use it once a year because WHAT IF I RUN OUT?!).
This beautiful, special gem of a color is China Glaze’s Party Hardy from their 2010 holiday collection, and it is pretty damn amazing. I really wish I could have had decent length nails on which to showcase this, but all of my nails up and broke so tiny glitter nubbins it is.
Let me explain this polish to you. The key to its amazingness lies in the proportions. Sooo many red/green glitter combos end up muddy because all of the glitter is the same size, or is too small. Party Hardy has a mix of large red glitter, medium green glitter, and small silver glitter, so it really appears vibrant and varied on the nail; like a Christmas tree or those cookies with the green sugar and multicolored sprinkles. Delicious.
I have seen it over red, black, white, etc, but I think it really shines with a green base, since green seems to dominate the mix. I used one careful coat of Zoya Ray, and then globby globbed on two big ass coats of PH. It did require some thinning, because, hey, old glitter polish. What are ya gonna do.
The result is worth any time, effort, or pain. It really is a polish with no equal.
LET’S LOOK AT IT AGAIN!
