So there I am, feverishly making plans for all my December posts ... and 2 of my favourite indie makers release new collections! I hadn't planned for that lol !!
Here is the first, the Winter Collection from The Polish Bar, which releases tomorrow 1st December. It's a lovely collection of 5 colours - most of them intense and bright.
Starlight is the odd one out of the bunch, a delicate white holo which needs 3 coats to be worn on it's own.
I like that this has a frosted feel - like something the Ice Queen would wear in Narnia!
This can also be worn over other polishes BUT it's not a holo top coat, so it will change the colour of whatever polish you wear it over.
Star Voyage is just divine. Glorious. Stunning. Everything a Christmas polish should be.
This is a berry red holo. I love that Janice is still making super-fine holos when everyone else has veered towards "crunchier" ones. It's the super fine ones that really take your breath away.
This is port, cranberries and velvet rolled into one. Magnificent.
The final holo is Mystic Sky. Although this is described as navy, it didn't lean quite that dark for me, but sometimes that's just because the polish is "new" and thinner.
This is a dark blue with occasional petrol tones - this definitely bends oceanic green at the very edges.
A lovely blue - another rich, decadent colour.
The 2 glitters are very similar. I've worn them solo on the ring finger, and over a dark creme on the other fingers. Whilst I love them solo, I love how just one coat of them over a dark base really accentuates the holo.
Dream Galaxy has pink, purple, turquoise and green glitters, and is sitting snugly on top of OPI Siberian Nights.
I absolutely love the drama of this over the OPI. I dare you to tell me that's not a perfect midnight sky!
Cosmic Sea has pink, purple and green glitters and is sat on top of OPI Christmas Gone Plaid.
As I said, I love how the holo is more noticeable over the dark base. It looks so Christmassy.
These polishes were sent to me for an honest review and launch tomorrow. You can buy them HERE and need to keep checking Janice's FB page HERE for launch info.
