Smitten Polish Winter/Holiday 2014

Good (very-late) evening!  I've got a gorgeous collection to share with you tonight.  This is the Smitten Polish Winter/Holiday 2014 Collection.  Noelie has stolen my heart yet again with her holo micro glitter and linear holo wizardry.  Well she threw a curve ball in this collection too and I hope to see a plethora of amazing flakie creations from her in the near future because this one is a stunna.  The Winter/Holiday 2014 Collection will be available for PRE-SALE for 24 hours on Saturday 11/15 at 2pm Central.  So let's jump in and check out these beauties!

Up first are the micro glitters.  This is Ghosts of Christmas, a vampy, deep burgundy jelly packed full of micro glitters.  Ghosts of Christmas had a superb formula and applied easily.  It was very opaque.  I used 2 coats of Ghosts of Christmas.  It does dry with a matte and slightly gritty finish but nothing a nice layer of topcoat can't gloss up!

Taking a turn to the icy shade Jack Frost.  This is a gorgeous light blue jelly packed with holo micro glitters.  It makes me think of snow and ice and brrrrr now I need a sweater!  Formula and application were both great.  Jack Frost had perfect coverage in 2 coats.  I used 1 layer of topcoat to shine things up.

Snow Day Sunrise is exactly the soft rosy shade I'd expect to see reflecting off the snow during a sunrise (if I actually lived in the snow).  This is a beautiful pink-rose jelly with holo micro glitter.  Snow Day Sunrise is ultra sparkly and feminine.  Formula and application were perfect.  I used 3 coats of Snow Day Sunrise for full coverage and finished with a layer of topcoat.

I saved my favorite micro glitter for last (why do I always do that?).  Maple Sugar Candy is a soft golden/tan/butterscotch jelly with loads of holo micro glitter.  It actually makes me long for pudding (probably because I don't care for the true maple flavor - give me a bottle of fake maple syrup any day though).  Formula and application were both flawless.  I used 3 coats of Maple Sugar Candy and 1 layer of topcoat.

And now the surprise of the bunch!  Figgy Pudding is a purple based jelly full of gorgeous red/copper flakies.  I honestly wasn't expecting this one.  It's amazing.  The shifty colors of the flakies against the base is a work of art.  The formula and application were both fabulous.  I used 3 coats of Figgy Pudding and 1 layer of topcoat.

And now we've arrived a the linear holos.  This is Between the Baubles.  Between the Baubles quenches ever desire I've ever had for a beautiful, deep evergreen holo.  The formula and application were both wonderful - like buttah.  I used 2 coats of Between the Baubles and no topcoat.

Yup, I saved my favorite for last again.  And who wouldn't love this one the most?  Nose So Bright is a perfect, true red linear holo.  Nose So Bright was smooth, creamy and opaque.  The formula and application were both perfection.  I used 2 coats of Nose So Bright and no topcoat.  Can't you just picture this being the actual shade of Rudolph's glowing nose?!
