So first up we have Everybody Loves Penguin. This one is really unique. It has a semi-opaque white jelly base with medium black and yellow hexes, plus gigantic black hexes. The glitters aren't super densely packed which makes for an interesting final effect. I was surprised to learn that this polish actually wasn't too difficult to apply! With the jellylike base and the large glitters, I expected it to be a nightmare, but it really wasn't. This is three coats.
The next two polishes are from the Happy Holodays Duo. This first one is just called the "glitter topper" and consists of small and medium size red and green glitters. The green glitters are kind of lime-y instead of the usual Christmas forest green, which I actually loved. The tone of the green really made this polish fun and youthful instead of too serious. This is two coats over white.
The second polish in the duo is called Ruby. A little darker than I've been able to capture here, Ruby is a rich red with holographic sparkle that dries smooth and flat. This is two coats alone.
Here it is in direct light. The jelly base gets lit up and lightens a bit, and of course the sparkle comes out in full force.
Finally, we have Love Always, Candy Cain. I have shown this glitter topper layered over Zoya Veruschka. It has micro, medium, and large red and white glitters, plus red and white hearts! It's really cute and festive. I did find myself having to dip the brush a couple of times to get the heart glitters to come out, but not so many times that it was aggravating or anything.
So what do you think? Which ones are you liking the most? I think I gotta give it to the Happy Holodays glitter topper, personally, but Everybody Loves Penguin is so unique, too...!
