nail polish swap

today i am so excited to be bringing you a post all about the nail polish swap i entered with some lovely ladies; jessica from my beautiful life, kristen from the wright stuff, melissa from the life of a not so ordinary wife and katlyn from the dreamy meadow.

i was partnered with the lovely ruth from superfluous ambitions and boy was i spoiled by here. when filling out the description box for which type of polish we were loving at the moment i said glitter as i cannot get enough of them right now and she hit the nail on the head. i got a lovely christmas miniatures set and 2 individuals all packed with glitter :D

china glaze merry berry - this is my absolute favourite out of the bunch and am definitely going to be buying the full size bottle once i have used all this mini up which will probably be pretty soon a i have worn it loads already. its a gorgeous darker red with berry tones that is perfect for fall.
china glaze red satin - this is the most festive colour of the set it is a typical red, think holly berry red. unlike some other reds i have tried it is very bright and also as with merry berry you could get away with only one coat, which is great is you are in a hurry. the drying time for these polishes is amazing, i will definitely be trying some more colours from china glaze :D
china glaze winter holly - this glitter polish is lovely, it contains gold and green glitter that has been milled so finely that the polish itself looks like it is a green polish with glitter when in actual fact the polish itself is clear. 
china glaze glitter all the way - i cannot wait to wear this colour for new years its, i think its perfect!! this nail polish is all about the glitter. its a clear nail polish that is packed with so much glitter that after a few coats the nails look like you have just poured multicoloured glitter onto them :)
finger paints laugh my art off - this one is really unusual, it has an almost blue tinted clear polish with lots of blue glitter. i love the effect it creates and the colour its self is really different from any thing else i have so is a great addition.
nina ultra pro boys n berries - i love the colour of the glitter in this polish. i would probably use this layered over another colour as it didn't build well, the photo below seriously took about five coats to make the glitter look opaque. but i would love this over darker polishes, can't wait to play around with colour combinations.

a huge thank you to ruth for these amazing additions to my collection!!!
