I'll be Back Again Someday and Holoday in Heels

Are you ready for the holidays? Not a fan of the holidays (like moi)? These You Polish lacquers will put you in the holiday mood (maybe hahahah)! These are the Core polishes from You Polish this holiday season. You can also find these polishes in You Polish's December Monthly Box - releasing tonight at 7pm EST. After the jump I have swatches of each of the polishes above!

Snow Mouse is a "clear base with matte and satin white hexes and squares, a holographic dusting and tons of silver holo Mickey heads".  How snowy, fun, and adorable is this polish? I also like that you could wear this polish all times of year over several different colors. This would be too cute over red and green nails for Christmastime!

I did 1 coat of Snow Mouse over Sweet Heart Polish O'Connell, no top coat. The application was good and the white glitter coverage was great. I did have to fish for the Mickey glitter, which is understandable. The dry time was also good. No big issues here!

[Excuse the random shorties! That's what you get for splitting up swatches and unpacking :( Sadday] Ice Cold has "baby blue hexes and squares, iridescent glitters, large and small stars with a light aqua blue shimmer". Iridescent glitter and stars, yes please! This is another versatile winter-esque polish. I bet this would look amazing over a black polish.

I did 2 of Ice Cold coats over Zoya Kennedy, plus 1 coat of top coat. The application was smooth, without issues, and the dry time was good to go. You had to fish to get most of the stars onto your nail, which I again find understandable. They do stick up a little even after top coat, but I'm sure more coats of top coat would make it less obvious. Focusing not applying the stars to the curve in your nail also helps too :]

This is one of my favorite holiday polishes thus far, plus it's blue haha. You Polish Let's Have a Party: "Celebrating Hanukkah, this polish is a deep blue jelly with tons of silver holographic hexes, bars and snowflakes with a purple shimmer throughout". The one thing I'm always happy about is that You Polish does jelly polishes very, very well. Some of the best jelly indie polishes I've encountered. The purple shimmer you can see in the macro, it's more obvious in person!

I did 2 coats of Let's Have a Party, plus top coat. The application was nice and smooth, great glitter coverage, and had an awesome dry time for a jelly. The snowflakes, like most shaped glitter, had to be fished out.

I'll be Back Again Someday is a mix of "snow white hexes, black hexes and squares, red squares, small rainbow diamond hexes and cute little snowmen sure to bring Claymation Frosty to mind". I can safely say I've never tried a polish with snowmen in it before! 

I did 2 coats of I'll be Back Again Someday over Bondi The Limelight. I didn't have any issues with the application or dry time with this polish. Like the others, it took a little fishing for the baby snowmen. This one took a little bit more fishing than the other glitters, but I was able to fish out 2 lol.

Holoday in Heels is a "dark pink with a strong linear holo". I actually wore this to my interview yesterday. I like how it's a nice pinky, shade with a little sass thrown in with the holo. You can also see the holographic effect in almost any light.

I did 2 coats of Holoday in Heels, no top coat. It didn't give me any issues. Some coats felt a little thicker than others, but it was easy to smooth out. The dry time was also great not giving me any problems.
