Okay... maybe they aren't just yet! But all this week I have been in quite a Christmassy mood, ever since these babies arrived!
Each year out of all the nail polish sets, from Orly to OPI, I go for a China Glaze Holiday set as I love the shades and of course their cute festive names. But this year I decided to get a mini set as they are cheaper and I know I won't use all of the shades after Christmas... which is why I sold the set I got last year as the full sized bottles never got used!
I don't actually know where the China Glaze sets can be bought from in the UK, so I always buy them from eBay - This set can be found here for £14.50 inc p&p and is a UK seller so no waiting ages.
The Santa's Little Helpers set contains 4 x 9.6ml polishes in...
Tinsel Town, Icicle, Ring in the Red and Velvet Bow.
My absolute favourite out of the 4 polishes is Tinsel Town, which I know I will wear a lot and not just in December... it is so sparkly but in such a wonderful gunmetal shade - this alone was worth buying the set for! My next equal favourites are Ring in the Red for being so red and glittery and Icicle because it reminds me of silver wrapping paper..... oh it's making me wish it was December already.
Did I tell you I'm a massive lover of Christmas?!
But sadly it isn't the holiday season just yet, but I'm still wanting to wear some of the polishes. So this was what I was wearing on my nails before I had my little fingers caught in the drawer accident!
Ring in the Red is quite an opaque glitter polish so I decided to just paint one thin coat over Zoya Jem and I kind of think it looks a bit Halloween meets Christmas! It's a bit two tone and slightly dark but with that little glimpse that Christmas will soon be upon us!
I really can't wait to show you what Tinsel Town looks like on the nails as it's just so pretty and oh so sparkly!
So pleased that I got this set.
