INM Northern Lights- Limited Edition Silver

 Black topped with INM Northern Lights- Limited Edition Silver (2 coats)
 
Earlier this month I was trolling Instagram and was excited when I saw INM post with ordering info for two special holiday editions of their Northern Lights Hologram Top Coat. Of course I had to have them!
 


I first tried the Silver over black and ohmygosh I LOVE it!

 Here's a blurry pic so you can see what it looks like in the sun. LOVE!
 
It looks pretty cool in the shade too! The red and green glitter stand out a bit more.
 
Here's the ordering info from their Instagram if you are interested:
 
Northern Lights Limited Edition �� Get both for only $10+ shipping! All purchases will be made through pay pal, this is a non-international deal (we are located in the US), and please email sales@inmnails.com to place your order!

OPI Kiss Me- Or Elf!

Kiss Me- Or Elf!
(2 coats)
from the 2014 Gwen Stefani Holiday collection
 
 Kiss Me- Of Elf! is another shade featured in the Mini Holiday Stars set. It's a really pretty fuchsia shimmer. Two coats gave me pretty good coverage, but I later noticed there were some spots that looked like they needed a third coat to have complete opacity.

OPI First Class Desires

OPI First Class Desires
2 coats
from the 2014 Gwen Stefani Holiday Collection
 
First Class Desires was a shade I knew I needed right I saw the first swatches that came out....... it's so pretty! It's a deep deep purple that has tones of brown in it as well as a gorgeous golden shimmer. This is definitely my favorite of the entire collection.

China Glaze December To Remember

China Glaze December To Remember
3 coats
from the China Glaze Twinkle Collection for Holiday 2014
 
December To Remember is nothing special in the sun, just a medium blue shimmer. But in the shade, or on an overcast day, just look! It's got a gorgeous pink duochrome shift! It was a bit sheer and needed 3 coats, but the effect was well worth it. I absolutely love this shade!

Live Love Polish review- Seche Mischievous topped with Seche Vite

Seche Mischievous (2 coats)
topped with Seche Vite topcoat
 
Today I've got a review of some products I received from Live Love Polish. I was really excited to give a Seche polish a try! Even though Seche Vite has long been a staple in my nail polish arsenal, I've never tried their polish line.
 
Mischievous certainly lived up to the Seche name! It dried super-fast and application was great. Although one coat was somewhat sheer and streaky, the second coat evened it out, and darkened it to a gorgeous deep black cherry shade. I used Seche Vite as my topcoat (and there's nothing like a brand-new bottle of Seche Vite!) and got that fast-drying gel-like finish Seche is known for.
 
Live Love Polish offers free US shipping over $20 and stocks great brands like Color Club, NCLA, and RGB. They are on Instagram as @live.love.polish.

SinfulColors Galaxy-Sea

SinfulColors Galaxy-Sea (1 coat)
over Seche Mischievous (2 coats)
 
Today I had on a dark, vampy mani and thought this SinfulColors glitter topper might just make it pop and give it a bit of holiday flair. Galaxy-Sea is a clear base filled with green and gold glitter, and I love the way it looks over this dark color! I got great coverage just dabbing it on- my brush was easily filled with glitter, no need to fish around or specifically place. A coat of Seche Vite smoothed it out nicely.
 
Galaxy-Sea is part of the SinfulColors Holiday 2014 collection and is available for $1.99 each exclusively at Walgreens.

The End of the OPI Ulta Exclusive Holiday Sets?

Sadly, it looks like there won't be an OPI Ulta Exclusive set for 2014. I am so disappointed! I've collected these since 2006 and look forward to them every year. I've scoured their ads and checked in store to no avail, but if you know something I don't and have seen a set for this year, please let me know! (Note that the Mini Holiday Stars set is *not* an Ulta excusive, just a mini set for the Gwen Stefani Holiday collection.)
