Another holiday 2011 collection! I think this may be the last one, yay! Luckily you can still purchase these shades if you feel so inclined I liked that this collection had a good mixture of crèmes and glitters. Overall it’s a solid collection for more festive occasions, depending on your work I can’t see many of these being overly neutral or work appropriate. As always 2 coats with no top coat.
Blue Year’s Eve
A shimmery royal blue, despite appearances the finish is really smooth. I find the shade to have a very decadent feel.
Shimmery canary yellow gold with silver glitters, I would’ve never thought silver glitters would work well with yellow gold, but now that I see it, it isn’t half bad!
A rich moss green with duo chrome gold and green flecks, I absolutely love this! It is gorgeous, I am such a fan of anything with duo chrome and the finish on this is very smooth. But if you like this without the flecks try China Glaze’s Jolly Holly.
An emerald crème shade, Essie’s Going in Incognito has more of a bluer tinge to it.
A metallic silver shade, China Glaze’s Cheers to you is a more metallic version. Surprisingly I found Face of Australia’s Titanium to be a pretty spot on dupe!
A chilli red crème, I thought Zoya’s Sooki and Tamsen was a pretty close dupe to this.
Ring in the Red
Red glitter with large chunky red glitter, not my favourite of the collection and it leaves a rough finish.
Chunky light hologram glitters, a bit too gritty for my own taste but I do have a number of very similar dupes I can talk about. Color Club’s Snowflakes and Color Club’s Starry Temptress are much finer versions of this polish with a smoother finish. Or check out OPI’s Happy Anniversary which has even finer micro shimmers.
A gunmetal shimmer shade, packed with a ton of large and medium sized silver glitters. Even tho I wouldn’t deem my description as unique, I wasn’t able to find any dupes to this! And I actually really loved it, it’s edgy yet girly.
A mixture of antique gold, red and green glitters. A few more coats and this would look amazing, very christmasy. OPI’s Bring on the Bling is similar but with a more pinky hue.
A deep maroon red creme, not a hard shade to dupe! Try OPI’s Sariguite or even a light coat of OPI’s Black Cherry Chutney. Even OPI’s Pepe’s Purple Passion is similarish.
The perfect red, an essential in everyone’s collection… but I suspect most people already have it since it really isn’t that unique.
