Good evening! Are you in bed yet? No? Neither am I. Even thought I should hit the sack early because I have to get up at 6am again to get in a 10 mile run with my running buddy. I will do so but it will be grudgingly and I'll likely still be asleep for the first half hour. So since I'm still awake and you're still awake let's talk more polish! Another brand that will be releasing a fantastic collection on Black Friday is my beloved Smitten Polish! The Christmas In Hollows Eve is a fun collection, inspired by Gilmore girls and it's full of a variety of finishes; glitter, shimmer, holo - they are all FANTASTIC. And let me start by saying I'm sorry, I didn't watch this series so I can't comment on how any of these actually relate to the show. Maybe one of you fans can let me know! Christmas In Stars Hollow releases on 11/27 at 2pm Central. The pre-order will be open for 24 hours. Since it's Black Friday there's a code for you to use! THANKS2015 will get you 20% off your entire order (excluding the new Christmas In Stars Hollow collection). This code is also only for 24 hours. So happy shopping and buy all the Smitten!

The first beauty I have to share with you is my favorite of the collection. This is Monkey Monkey Underpants. It's a nude crelly full of red shimmer. Be-still my heart! So much gorgeousness! Everything about this polish is awesome. The crelly finish is really fab. The neutral color with the pop of red shimmer is stunning. Formula and application were both great. I used 3 coats of Monkey Monkey Underpants and finished with a layer of topcoat.
I Ate The Fuzzy Certs is a wintry white full of metallic green glitters and a touch of holo sparkle. Even though I don't get the meaning behind the name I can totally appreciate that this looks just like a Cert breath mint! It's so refreshing and minty looking. My breath feels cleaner just from looking at it. The formula and application of I Ate The Fuzzy Certs were both great. I used 3 coats for full coverage and finished with a layer of topcoat.
I Smell Snow is a very soft blue scattered holo. This color reminds me of fleece (probably because I have 2 sets of fleece sheets in this color). It definitely has a soft, cozy appeal. Formula and application were both great. I used 3 coats of I Smell Snow for full coverage and finished with a layer of topcoat.
I've got a comparison of some blue Smittens to share with you now. I compared I Smell Snow to Jack Frost and A Bouquet of Warblers.
I have I Smell Snow on my index and ring. Jack Frost on my middle. A Bouquet of Warblers on my pinky. None are identical in color or finish.
It's always the season for pink! Big Head Want Dolly is a vibrant and lively bright pink loose scattered holo. This shade is really fun and it'll be perfect for all seasons. The formula and application were both stellar. I used 2 coats of Big Head Want Dolly for full coverage and finished with a layer of topcoat.
I've got another comparison for you! Here are some of the pink Smittens I have in my collection; Big Head Want Dolly, In October We Wear Pink, Her Name Was Rose and Frangipani.
Index is Big Head Want Dolly. Middle is In October We Wear Pink. Ring is Her Name Was Rose. Pinky is Frangipani. All are very different. If pink is one of your favorites, like it is mine, then it's safe to say you will want them all.
Rounding out the collection is Buy Me A Boa And Drive Me To Reno. This is a bright red-pink jelly with a scattered holo finish. Love this color! The finish is so squishy and shiny too! I used 3 coats of of Buy Me A Boa And Drive Me To Reno for full coverage. Finished with a layer of topcoat. I didn't do a comparison here because I held this up to some of my other red Smittens and they weren't even close to being similar!
