Comprised of 6 glitter nail polishes. All of these polishes are perfect for layering over your favorite cream nail polish. If worn alone they’re sheer with hex glitter bits and gold shimmer.

Here’s a closer look at Winter Blues over a bare set of nails.
I think my favorite shade in this collection is Bling on the Holidays. I really like the way the gold looks over a deep red.
These colors also look pretty cool over solid white nails. When worn over solid white nails the color of the hex glitter bits really stand out.
Here’s a peek at how the glitters look over white and over red.

They’re a little thick in consistency so they don’t spread as smoothly as I was hoping. If you’re planning on attempting a gradient with any of these glitters wipe the brush a few times to reduce the polish on the brush. Start at the base and gently glide and lift midway up your nail… using this dry brush technique makes it easier to attempt the gradient without using a sponge. (dry brush technique)
