Orly 'Tis the Season Part II: Naughty or Nice, Glitz & Glamour, Winter Wonderland

Here are the other 3 shades in Orly's 'Tis the Season Holiday collection. If you're interested in the additional three shades, you can find those here. First up--Naughty or Nice, a deep raisin creme shade that looks purple on the first coat, but darkens significantly with a second coat. The high gloss on this one picked up every reflection it could!

Below: A layer of Winter Wonderland over Naughty or Nice somehow gives the illusion of a gradient look upon movement of your hand.
Below: Glitz & Glamour is the brightest and foiliest gold in my collection now. This covered nicely in 2 coats and is packed with gold foil micro glitter.

Below: Winter Wonderland over Glitz & Glamour adds an interesting silver & gold mosaic look.
Below: I used 2 coats of Winter Wonderland on it's own in these photos, and there's something in this polish that gives it a little shifting action. The areas that look thinner in color on my nails aren't noticeable when I look at them straight on.

Winter Wonderland is the one I was most curious about of these 3, and it's an interesting polish. On it's own it isn't terribly exciting, but the silver added with the white gives a subtle yet sparkly look. Experimenting with it over other colors will be my primary interest in this one. Glitz & Glamour is definitely eye-catching and considering it has such a bright foil look, I thought it may apply in a less than desirable way, but I was completely happy with the application/formula. Naughty or Nice is one of those shades that others would consider black, but it is a very deep eggplant shade on the first coat, and then darkens and becomes a little more brown--again, a raisin reference to the color--on the second coat.

  7. Layered these are gorgeous. Otherwise I think I'll give them a miss. Nothing I don't already have. Does anyone make a red with white glitter? Maybe white hex glitter?
