Hello lovelies! I finally managed to get photos uploaded and edited! It's looking like I will be posting twice a day for awhile in order to catch up. Today I'll be swatching away though!
I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday. Christmas is a huge deal in my Family and we spent 3 days celebrating. I only wanted one thing for Christmas this year - I wanted my kids to have a wonderful Christmas and have a day where they were spoiled and happy. My wish was granted and by the end of the day I had two incredibly happy and worn out kiddos. It was one of the best Christmas days ever and so much more than I could have hoped for. The only thing that wasn't great was the beating my hands and cuticles took! Wrapping paper, removing toys from boxes, and a dog bite (my niece's dog had a scaredy dog moment and chomped on me while I was holding him. Better me than one of the kids tho!) tore my hands up. Between all of that and the cold, dry weather and forced heat with zero humidity, my hands are angry. Time for some pampering!
Before I show you some awesome polish, don't forget to enter the giveaway! Less than a week left to enter, and there are some daily entries that you don't want to forget!
I am also finally mailing out packages today. Long lines at the post office and a cranky toddler delayed things a bit. Sorry about that folks! Rest assured your polishes are all on their way now!
Today I am (finally!) sharing my Xmas manicure with you all! I purposely saved this polish for Xmas, since it is my very fave Holiday polish from 2012, and perhaps my fave holiday polish of all time. It's from one of my top 3 Indie Brands, Polish TBH and it it's called "Reindeer Vomit". This polish is aptly named, since it literally looks like Rudolph had a few too many margaritas and upchucked all over my nails! I have a pretty twisted sense of humor so this is right up my alley!
Reindeer Vomit (hehe) is a mix of fuchsia, blue, silver, gold mutli-size and shape glitters and microglitters with some large Red Hex, Gold Hex,and Silver Stars in a sheer green jelly base. I'm sure I'm forgetting something in there - this girl is just LOADED with glitter! The sheer green base is what really makes this for me. This particular shade of green looks alot like maybe Rudolph was drinking some Midori Sours as well!
This is 3 coats of Reindeer Vomit, no undies, topped with SH Mega Shine. Be sure to click to read more....you want to check out the macros of this polish!!
I LOVE this polish! The green jelly base is a bit more vibrant IRL - my lighting just kind of goes through it since it is a sheer jelly. Although this is meant to be a Holiday Polish, you can bet that I'll be wearing this year round.
As with all Polish TBH creations, the formula on this girl was wonderful! Usable right out of the bottle with no thickening during use. No glopping or gooping at all, and no clumpy glitters.
Superb! Reindeer Vomit applied smoothly for a super chunky glitter bomb. No dragging, balding, clumping at the nail tip here! The brush delivered the perfect amount of glitter for each coat, and I did not have to fish for the larger hexes or star glitters at all. The green jelly base is pretty sheer, so if you don't like VNL I would suggest 3 coats (no VNL IRL), however this looks awesome at even 1 coat. RV would also look amazing layered.
I'm not sure if Reindeer Vomit is going to be available as part of Christian's new collection - it may have been an LE - but if you can get your hands on it I highly recommend it. You can be I will be cherishing my bottle!
Polish TBH is available via the Polish TBH shop on Etsy. All polishes are 3-free, and full sized bottles retail for $8, minis for $4. The Fantasy Collection is available now, and be sure to keep an eye out for the new collection!
What do you think of Reindeer Vomit? Are you loving this glitter as much as I am?
I'll be back tomorrow with a couple of posts including Laquerlicious and Tip Top Nails South Africa!
Until then....thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
