Daphine Polish Holiday Collection, Part II--Review and Swatches

Hi there, my darlings!! As promised, I have the second part of Daphine Polish's Holiday 2013 collection for you--the previous post HERE showed you the holographic/shimmers and this post is devoted to the 5 glitter topcoats that make up this collection!

Before we get started, I have to say that the application and formula of ALL five glitters was phenomenal--I didn't have to fish for the larger glitters and the distribution of glitter per brush stroke was really even. I am super impressed with each and every one of them! That being said, if you're ready, let's get right to it, since I have many, many, MANY photos to show you! =)

First up, I have for you the very appropriately named Christmas in A Bottle--a clear topcoat with red, green and gold glitters, silver microglitter and gold holographic stars. The swatches below show 2 smooth coats over 2 coats of Sinful Colors Wisp, topped with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl to finish the look! Isn't THE perfect topcoat for a Christmas mani?! =)

Next, I have for you Frosty--a clear topcoat chock-full of white and iridescent glitters, including teeny tiny iridescent microslices. The swatches below show two smooth coats over 2 coats of OPI We'll Always Have Paris, topped with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl . Now I'm not usually a big fan of bars, but these microslices are pretty unobtrusive and I LOVE the iridescence of them! Look at that blue flash!

Next, I have my personal favorite of the bunch, Rosina Violet--a clear glitter topcoat with bright pink glitters, including bright pink holographic circles, with added pink shimmer. The swatches below show 2 easy coats over two coats of China Glaze Recycle, topped with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl. I love, love, LOVE circle glitter and this one does NOT disappoint! SO pretty!

Up next, I have for you Rudolph's Nose--a gorgeous clear topcoat with maate, metallic and holo red glitters and green microglitter. The swatches below show 1 coat of Rudolph's Nose on the index and ring fingers and 2 coats of Rudolh's Nose on the middle finger, all over 2 coats of Zoya Sailor. I absolutely love how this combination turned out--Zoya Sailor is the perfect undies for the bright red glitters!

Last but definitely not the least, we have Skatin--a clear glitter topcoat with blue and silver metallic glitter, tiny matte blue glitters and large holographic diamonds, along with tons of gold shimmer. The swatches below show show 2 generous coats over two coats of Revlon Royale, topped with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl to finish the look. Seriously...those diamonds!!! OMG!
