Here is Painted Polish Painted Pines- say that 3 times fast haha! A stunning forest green jelly full of holo glitter! It is no secret that I adore the formula of Painted Polish, and this one did not disappoint! Smooth, sparkly, amazing. This is 3 perfect coats.
For fun I decided to try and water marble over it. It was surprisingly successful, in my opinion. While the clear polish did dull the holo sparkle, it was still a stunning and sparkly manicure.
WOW!! That's really all I need to say about this. While I don't totally understand how this fits in to the OPI Mustang collection, I'm so glad they decided to release it. This is the most amazing polish, it is very similar to the VHTF OPI Catch Me In Your Net. While I cannot compare them, I do know that these are not at all dupes, just similar ideas.
SeaLore Polish released Aquaversary to celebrate their 2nd anniversary as an indie polish line. Sea Lore was the first indie line I tried, and they have a very special place in my heart. All of their polishes are inspired by sea life and mermaids. Aquaversary is a smooth sea glass toned polish with a slight holo effect.
Here are some KBShimmer swatches for your viewing pleasure! This is a brand that never ceases to amaze me. So many new colors every collection, but the formulas are always amazing!
3 thin coats, great glossy formula and wear time! Perfect, creamy, glossy black.
Touch Of Glass
3 thin coats. pale icey sea glass like blue, almost minty blue. slight silver shimmer.
2 thin coats. With slightly thicker coats this could easily be a one coater. Dusty medium blue creme.
Medium teal jelly base with purple, teal and orange/green iridescent hex glitters and tiny orange and green glitters. Ring finger 1 coat over Stonewashed. The jelly base is pretty sheer- this is 3 thin coats. I prefer the look of one coat over a matching creme.
Holly Back Girl
White crelly base and 3 sizes of red and green hex glitter.
Painted Polish is an amazing indie polish brand created by a lovely lady named Lexi. She rocks at making this super pretty holo glitters in different color jelly bases. Across the board, all of the polishes have flawless formulas, for being so glitter heavy all of them dry super smooth.

Painted Polish is having a restock tomorrow (11/30) at 5 PM Pacific Time! I don't know if all of these polishes will be available, but her stunning Holo-day collection will be. I know what I'll be doing at 5:00 tomorrow :)
Orly Mirrorball is a silver linear holo speckled with larger holo glitter. This polish is part of the Holiday 2014 collection and it already has quite the cult following. I am admittedly not the biggest linear holo fan, but this polish is AMAZING!!!

This polish should still be available at Sally's/Ulta, I highly recommend you add this to your collection. The addition of larger holo glitter particles really makes this a special polish.
I've never really been inspired by Zoya, but they recently had a great sale so I decided to pick up some of their Pixie Dust polishes to give them a try.
All swatches are 2 coats with no base coat, top coat used is Color Club.
Dahlia with top coat
Sunshine with top coat
Arianna with top coat
Noir with top coat
Overall I really like Sunshine and Dahlia and would love to try more of the original pixie dusts… Noir and Arianna, they are pretty and all, but didn't dry down to a very matte finish and just didn't wow me.
China Glaze Wait N Sea is a stunning bright turquoise color, it is slightly brighter and more green than it appears in pictures. I accented it with Sinful Colors nail tattoos and Painted Polish by Lexi Drunk on Holo. This was so fun and lovely to wear, and inspired me to order a ton more nail tattoos and water decals.
China Glaze released a train inspired collection for Fall 2014. Its a very interesting mix of neutrals and dusty colors. I purchased two polishes from this collection, because China Glaze usually makes amazing cremes for their fall collections. These two did not disappoint!!
