Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers! I love Thanksgiving because I love spending time with my family. I also love mashed potatoes. So the holiday is a big hit for me! LOL. Although I do have some bad news. I woke up yesterday morning with a broken nail. How is that possible? *sigh* So anyway, you’ll be seeing some “sportier” swatches for the next several weeks.
Question: What’s better than an indie polish? Answer: THREE indie polishes! Today I have a special Holiday Collaboration Collection to show you. Polished by KPT, Lacquer Lust and Serum No. 5 have joined forces to create a sweet three-shade collection consisting of a glitter, a thermal and a holo. Perfect. This set will be available from all three indies (and internationally through Harlow & Co) on Sunday, December 1st at noon PST. Links at the end of the post.
First up is Yule Light Up My Life by Serum No. 5. This glitter topper captures all of the colors of the holiday in multi-sized hexes suspended in a slightly cloudy base. This is my first Serum No. 5 and I was impressed. The glitter spread easily and evenly. I’ve seen several swatches over white, which is stunning because you can really see each individual glitter. I decided to try it over a gold for maximum festiveness. This is one coat of Yule Light Up My Life over two coats of Zoya Ziv. I used two coats of topcoat. Many of the glitters are holographic, so this is really amazing when it moves.
Next up is Naughty and Nice by Polished by KPT. This thermal polish is a rose pink shade when warm and a deep berry (almost burgundy) when cold. It’s finished with a slight touch of shimmer. Katherine does thermals so well. I love this one equally when it’s hot or cold! My swatch is two coats and topcoat.
And last, but certainly not least, is Ho Ho Holodays by Lacquer Lust. This color is really spectacular and my photos don’t do it justice. It has a grass green holo base with a subtle fuchsia/gold shimmer. It’s absolutely beautiful. This is two easy coats plus topcoat.
I love this idea of an indie “sampler”!! I believe all of these shades are limited edition, so snatch them up while you can!
The Holiday Collaboration Collection will retail for $37.50 and goes on sale December 1st. You can purchase the set from Polished by KPT, Serum No. 5 or Lacquer Lust. International customers can purchase the collection from Harlow & Co.
