Below: Mulberry Madness is a perfect holiday red shade with loads of glitter. The foil glitter is primarily red, and flashes to a deep fuchsia glitter in brighter lighting. Both this shade and Winter Wishes dried to a slightly matte finish, so I used a top coat over them. Does this remind anyone else of a toned-down version of Massini's Slammin' Red?
Below: Winter Wishes is a new favorite of mine! This is much more pigmented than I thought it would be, and I initially planned to use this as a top coat over other polishes. It works fine all by itself though, and it's probably a little too pimented to use as a layering top coat. This pale gold glitter shade looks more silver in the bottle, but I love that it actually applies as more of a gold shade--a very delicate gold shade.
Below: Holly Good Time also surprised me with its level of pigmentation, especially for a glitter in an almost clear base. The abundant tiny glitter is colored in reds and golds. I am completely impressed with the coverage on this shade, not to mention its unique coloring. I also bought this one with the intention of using it as a top coat only, because I didn't think it would work well by itself. I guess I was wrong!
Below: That's not to say that the versatile Holly Good Time won't work as a top coat though. I used 2 thin coats over Winter Wishes, and I can only imagine how well it would perform over a darker shade to give it more contrast.
Below: Merry Mittens is much more conservative than the other 3 shades I chose, but it's pretty and a nice color for the holidays. This slightly burnt red shimmer has red and gold glitter mixed in, but the glitter is sparse in comparison to the others. Not a bad thing, but this one is definitely less complex than the others.
