China Glaze Phat Santa

 China Glaze Phat Santa from the 2010 'Tis the Season to be Naughty and Nice collection.

So, I believe that this was 3 coats; this color is more sheer than you would think that it is. It's almost a jelly, but not quite, and it only really seems like one just because it takes more coats to be opaque than you would think.  It's a medium-deep red with brown tones to it. Definitely more of a winter color, and little more color accurate to the lower picture.  It's relatively shiny on it's own, but as always, wear a top coat!

Ultimately... I don't like this polish that much. It's not as opaque as it should be, it's a wee bit watery, and I honestly always think that the color is going to be less brown than it actually is when I put it on. But if that's your type of red, then go for it.

What's your favorite red creme? Blue-based, orange-based, bright, dusty, etc?

  1. I don't really like this color either, I thought it would be a more brighter red like Santa's suit or something to that effect lol.
