You Polish Limited Edition Advent Polishes

I will be bringing you 24 different polishes by You Polish throughout the month of December. These polishes are apart of her limited edition advent! Be sure to tune back here if you're interested in this! I'll have you first look at these polishes as they are released :] If you want to stay up to the minute on when these polishes release, I suggest following You Polish on Facebook. Let's have a look at today's polish, #3, and tomorrow's polish!

Snowed in is a "shimmering rainbow diamond micro glitter base filled with snowmen and snowflakes". IRIDESCENT GLITTER FTW! If you like shaped glitter, this is the one for you. I think I left this tip in my last shaped glitter review, avoid placing the glitter on the curvature of your nail to make sure nothing is sticking up. This is a very versatile glitter for anyone who loves winter!

I did 2 coats of Snowed In over Zoya Monica, no top coat.  If I was going to apply top coat, I would of made sure the placed glitters were better placed on my nail. The ones coming up... top coat wouldn't of kept them from popping off. The dry time was great and the general application was fine. There was some fishing for snowflakes and snowmen, but they are quite large so it's to be expected.

Minty, festive, snowflake-y delight! Mint Kitten is "aqua and white hexes and squares in multiple sizes with pink, black, and green holographic accent glitters and white winter snowflakes in a minty green shimmery base". I love the mixture of colors in this polish, they work out so well together while still standing out. Four of the polishes will come with a kitty cat ring! Get it? Mint Kitten. Maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones? :D

I layered 2 coats of Mint Kitten over China Glaze Keep Calm Paint On, no top coat. I really wanted to build up this polish but it was too sheer for my tastes. Keep Calm Paint On worked perfect as undies! Application was great, glitters covered well too. I did have to fish for the snowflakes since they were larger. The dry time was without problems, no issues.
