On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
How I love nail polish!!!
It's been a long, long time since I did a Mad About Nails post. I've had issues with my nails being weak and brittle since the summer, and they've been breaking as soon as they start growing out. So why show you gross nails? But they're slowly growing back. My pinkies and thumbs are long right now!
This holiday season, I looked at all of the holiday collections in Nail It Magazine and Nails Magazine and thought, "Nope, nothing I really need except maybe two of these." THEN my mom and I went to the store and saw them in person. SO MUCH PRETTY.
Between my mom and I, this has been our holiday haul (From Sally's Beauy Supply, Flirt Beauty, and ULTA. Thank goodness for coupons!!!):
|(Sorry for the EOS in the picture [From BJ's]. I took this a while ago before I ever heard of Softlips Cube|
or came up with yesterday's lip balm post!)
We picked up dark gray "Out Like a Light," metallic blue "December to Remember," and a boxed trio featuring "Define Good...," "Dancing and Prancing," and "No Peeking!" The kit also came with a free purse!
I love the formula for Zoya products, so I was excited to see the Wishes collection. I wound up scooping up pixie dust colors "Thea" (A beautiful deep purple) and "Imogen" (A stunning, glittery black). I've used these two in alternating nails a couple of times already, and let me tell you--they look good together!
I also picked up "Willa" because I've been looking for a good solid black from Zoya, and my mom continued her metallic blue trend with "Prim."
Brilliant red "Cinnamon Sweet" and dark shimmery "First Class Desires" were the two we picked up from the Gwen Stefani Holilday Collection. Most of these colors were very traditional. I didn't see any true standouts (Though I may borrow "First Class Desires" from my mom every once in a while!)
This was the collection I was waiting to see in person! The nail bloggers had me SO EXCITED to see "Mirrorball," a shining holographic silver, and I already knew I wanted it. I also wanted to check out "Tinsel," because it looked fun and festive. The Sparkle Collection was the one nail polish collection I genuinely thought I'd be buying things from this season. I wanted two polishes. TWO.
And yet....look what we wound up with!
