Hi everyone! Happy December :)
For the remainder of the month my nails will be donning seasonally-appropriate shades. And almost all the ones I have are from indie brands. I feel like indie brands have been KILLING it all year but really did an awesome job with the Christmas collections. I have spent far too much money on Christmas polishes! And I probably have more than I can wear for the rest of the month (this coming from someone who changes their polish three times a week).
Anyway. Today I have Trimming the Tree from 365 Days of Color. Let's take a look...
Base coat: 1 coat of Nail Tek Foundation II
Polish: 2 coats of OPI Jade is the New Black, 2 coats of Trimming the Tree
Top coat: 1 coat of Seche Vite
Trimming the Tree is a wintergreen jelly filled with emerald, brown, and gold glitter. This polish seemed like it would be too sheer for my liking, so I decided to layer it over the OPI color.
It's a very pretty glitter but more on the subtle side. I didn't get much glitter, nor did it spread over my nails nicely. But it doesn't bother me too much because I'm content with the end result.
You know what's cool about this polish though? It's SCENTED! Normally, that doesn't do much for me but I loved that aspect of this polish. It smells like a pine-y soap or cologne or something. Definitely not straight pine. Typically, I hate pine scents...like can't stand them! But I really enjoyed this scent. And when I was actually painting my nails with this polish, that's all I could smell. Which I guess is better than the normal chemical smell.
I'm not sure how long the scent lasts cause I'm still wearing it and it still smells nice and strong.
You can find this polish on the 365 days of Color website here. I got the mini which was $4.50. I would like her Facebook page or follow her on Twitter because she often has promotions and deals!
Thanks for stopping by!
