I am slowly getting in the Holiday season mood. I baked a truckload of cookies today, which is kind of my personal tradition to get me in the spirit for Christmas. Plus friends and family like to receive some selfmade gifts ;) Do you have all your presents together? I just need a few small things, but every year it gets harder to find something for the beloved ones.
One thing I got myself for Christmas this year is the Ninja Polish Holiday collection. I accidentally stumbled upon this collection while browsing their website. I was immediately drawn to these 10 polishes. I could not find any swatches of them, but they looked so pretty in their bottles, that I decided to just order them all. The first two I want to share with you today are Sapphire Dreams and Shattered Star. The first is described as "a metalic deep blue and covers opaque easily in 2 coats". It is a jelly blue base loaded with shimmer particles and flecks. To get it opaque and even, I used two thin coats. It dried a bit dull, but one layer of topcoat made everything nice and shiny again.
To spice this manicure up a bit I layered a gradient of Shattered Star from the same collection over it. This polish "is made up of many various sizes of holographic and metallic gold and silver glitters....and in all aspects looks like a shattered star! This polish can cover your nail in 2-3 coats, but can be fabulous as a layering polish!" The deep blue of Sapphire Dreams goes so well with the bright golden color of Shattered Star. It looks like a starry night sky to me. My camera did not capture the holographic sparks on the nails, but you can see them in the bottle.
After using these two polishes I cannot wait to wear all the others and share them with you. If you're interested in the Ninja Polish Holiday Collection 2012, they're available individually on their website. They also sell a bundle of all 10 polishes for a discounted price.
That is my two cents for today. I hope you enjoyed these polishes just as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by.
