You Polish Limited Edition Advent Polishes

Hiiiii! Since You Polish went ahead and released all the colors at once (instead of day-by-day), Lauren said it would be okay for me to post the last 6! So today I have days 19-24 to share with you. If you're interested in swatches of the days 1-18, you can check out the tag, here.

BOW GLITTAHHH! Do Not Open Until 12/25/2013 is a clear base filled with "bright pink holo, neon pink, matte purple, pink and white glitters with bright pink and white bows". A cute, super girly mix. Kinda reminds me of Minnie Mouse a little, too many mouse polishes on my mind! This is my first bow polish. I actually was surprised that I didn't mind this shaped glitter haha.

I did 1 coat of Do Not Open Until 12/25/2013 over Zoya Trixie. DO YOU SEE ALL THAT GLITTERGOODNESS IN 1 COAT?! Haha. It had an awesome glitter coverage and the application was good. There was a bit of fishing for the bows, but it's expected. No issues with dry time.

Pretty Little Green Thing is a "medium green crelly with a slight red/gold shimmer and lots of lime green micro glitter". A super sparkly, Christmassy polish. Reminds me of a Christmas Tree! I love the depth of this crelly when layered on its own.

I did 2 coats of Pretty Little Green Thing. I had no issues with application, this polish built up really well. The dry time for this polish was awesome. No issues at all whatsoever.
You Polish Merry Fairy Holiday (Day #21) and ORWAGCP (Day #22)

Merry Fairy Holiday is a clear base with 'matte & satin white, pink, purple & teal hexes & squares with teal & pink micro bars & silver holographic stars". I think this polish is super cute and I really like the mix of colors going on in this polish!
I did 2 coats of Merry Fairy Holiday over Zoya Seraphina. It had a good glitter coverage per coat, the application was great. The dry time was without problems. I don't have any complaints about this polish!

ORWAGCP (a.k.a. "Obligatory red, white and green Christmas polish") is a "red holographic glitter mixed with matte, holographic and neon green glitters in a white crelly base". You want a Christmas polish, you got yourself a Christmas polish! This polish has a nice white, creamy, base that stills allow all the glitters to stand out. I know I say this often, but You Polish makes awesome white based polishes.

I did 2 coats of ORWAGCP, plus top coat - it was a little thirsty. The application was without issues, nice and smooth. I could of done 1 coat, but I planned for 2 haha. The dry time was okay, not what I'm used to with her usual white polishes. I'd wait between coats if you're doing 2 to allow it to dry completely.

You Polish Mint Twist (Day #23) and Magi's Gift (Day #24)

Mint Twist is a "minty green cream base with silver, green and white glitters in a variety of sizes". If you like green - this is the polish for you! Like ORWAGCP this base is great at being creamy, while still allowing the glitters to show through. Something totally makes me want to wear this on St. Patrick's day lmfao.

I did 2 coats of Mint Twist. I didn't have any issues with the application, it was nice and smooth and covered well. The dry time was also without any problems. Besides regretting not putting a top coat on before pictures, I have no complaints :]

This is one of my overall favorites from the collection. Magi's Gift is a 'holographic turquoise and blue glitters in a variety of sizes including dots, stars and hexes with silver diamonds and gold dots and micro glitter". This is a super fun, chunky, shaped glitter polish. I FREAKIN LOVE THE COLORS.

I did 2 coats of Magi's Gift over China Glaze Exotic Encounters. This polish was packed with glitter, so there was no need for fishing for the shapes. While it was packed with glitter, the application was still great and smooth. I didn't have any issues with dry time either :]
