Champagne Kisses from the China Glaze Holiday Joy 2012 collection is an absolutely beautiful rose gold, dense glitter. It is chock full of champagne gold glitter and pink glitter giving off a rose gold effect. The polish throws off sparks of true gold and even hints of green when hit by strong light.
