MAKEUP YOUR FACE: 2012 Winter Collection [Part 1]

Pin It All these holiday themed polishes are starting to make me want to put my Christmas tree up...and I don't even like holidays! Especially before Thanksgiving! xP BUuuuuuuuuuUUuuuuuT...

L->R: Makeup Your Face Entice Mint, Ornaments Wreaths & Christmas Treats, and Winter's First Frost

...That's not going to stop me from sharing some glittery holiday polish goodness! Today I have 3 polishes from Makeup Your Face's Holiday 2012 Collection! All are available now in her shop :]

The one thing that has impresses me about Indie polishes, especially holiday polishes, is that they all can be similar yet look entirely different. I love it!

Here's the bottle shot of the 3 I have for you today!

Top: Winter's First Frost, Left: Entice Mint Right: Ornaments, Wreaths & Christmas Treats

Enjoy the swatches!

SQUARES! AND IRIDESCENT PRETTINESS! :D They make my heart happy lol. Entice Mint is "reminiscent of a crushed candy cane with white & red glitter in squares & hexes with a hint of snowy iridescent glitter". The perfect holiday polish.

I did 1 coat of Entice Mint over Sinful Colors Envy. No application issues, no need to dip and dab and it dried pretty fast. I would recommend a thicker top coat or 2 layers of a thinner top coat.

Next is Ornaments, Wreaths and Christmas Treats:

This is super glitzy, and it lives up to it's name. OW&CT is "scattered full or red, green, and gold glitter in a variety of sizes". I love the large holo gold hex, I think it's my favorite part!

I did 2 coats of OW&CT over Maybelline Color Show Bold Gold. I layered it over a gold to bring out the gold glitter, you can do the same with a red or green polish to enhance those colors more. Again, no application issues, good dry time, and no dipping and dabbing. Again, I'd go with a thicker top coat or 2+ thinner top coat. I used 1 coat of Butter London Hardwear, I think it would of been alright with 2.

Next is Winter's First Frost:

Winter's First Frost contains holo silver micro glitter, silver shards, diamonds and hex, white hex, bar and shards all in a clear base. A very winter inspired polish! 

I did 2 coats over Essie Aruba Blue, I love how it popped against the blue color. WFF had great application, no dip and dabbing, and dried decently quick. I'd go for a thicker top coat, mostly because of the bar glitter but, it wasn't too bad with a thin one. 

You can only own Winter's First Frost if you purchase the full Holiday 2012 set by Makeup Your Face. You will get 4 polishes plus a mini of WFF and free shipping!

  1. I have to agree, not my favorite "holiday season". It's not even winter until December 21/22!! -_- Maybe if you put off swatching these 'til December you can remain strong? LOL They are pretty awesome glitters, though....

  2. I LOVE holiday collections. Our tree will be put out on Black Friday, but I am still excited to see all the red and green glitters. My fave is the Winter's First Frost. We had our first frost over a month ago.
