Hi there, my darlings! As if the sales and deals and discounts for Black Friday weren't enough, one of my favorite indies is also launching ttheir Christmas/Holiday collection for preorder on that day--Smitten Polish's Christmas in Stars Hollow collection for 2015 will be available! Set those alarms because this is a GORGEOUS collection!
Before we get to swatches, let's quickly discuss the formula and application of these polishes. Across the board, regardless of finish and unless mentioned specifically, all of these polishes applied fabulously--Noelie certainly knows how to make a beautiful polish! The swatches below show just 2 easy coats, topped with 1 generous coat Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to finish the look. Now, with that out of the way, on to swatches!
Monkey Monkey Underpants is a neutral sand-toned crelly with tons of intense but oh-so-hard-to-capture red and gold shimmer. I did use 3 thin coats for full opacity and it is a bit streaky on the first coat but self-levels nicely with subsequent coats. This is a neutral that I would actually reach for and that shimmer is to-die-for!
I Ate the Fuzzy Certs is a bright white crelly filled with small green glitters and holographic sparkle. The formula of this crelly is one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of swatching--just buttery smooth! And that touch of holo just makes it even more special!
Big Head Want Dolly is a bright Barbie pink holographic with added holo microglitter. Such a bright, fun shade and yes, even for Winter! How can a cold day get you down with a beauty like this on your nails?
I Smell Snow is a pale, pale blue holographic polish with added holo microglitter. Just perfect for the season, it reminds of its namesake--snow!
Buy Me A Boa and Drive Me To Reno is a bright, true-red jelly polish full of holographic microglitter. Hands-down my favorite of this collection, this red is just stunning!
So there you have it, my darlings! This collection is launching for pre-order this Friday, November 27th at 2 pm CST (3 pm EST) in Noelie's store HERE!
