China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses

Christmas is almost here! It's my favorite holiday by far. I love everything about it. So it's only appropriate that I show a holiday polish today. I have Mistletoe Kisses from China Glaze's 2010 collection, 'Tis The Season To Be Naughty And Nice.

It was my first time using Mistletoe Kisses and I must say, I love it. It's a beautiful silvery green glitter in a tinted green base. It's not dark like most greens I've seen released during the holidays, but it's still perfect for Christmas.

This beauty is a full coverage glitter, so only three coats were needed. It was mainly opaque by the second but some bald spots were showing. The formula was also really great, not too thick or runny. It dried fairly fast and it wasn't very gritty when it did. One coat of top coat was all I needed to make it completely smooth.

I'm so glad I didn't wait any longer to wear Mistletoe Kisses! It's a great polish for the holidays. I recently got the new China Glaze holiday polishes, so look out for those in future posts!

Sinful Colors Neptune

When Sinful Colors put out their Cast Away collection this year, I was excited. It was nice to see new colors since most of their "collections" re-promote their core line. I ended up getting Zeus and the one I'm showing today, Neptune.

Neptune is a denim blue packed with gorgeous silver fleck like shimmer. I really, really love it. It's beautiful and has definitely become a favorite blue.

The formula was so awesome. It applied easily and only two coats were needed for opacity. It has great quality and you don't have to break the bank for it, which I love. Literally the only downside was the clean up which took some extra time since it's so saturated.

I'm very satisfied with Neptune! It's a fantastic blue that doesn't disappoint one bit.
