Each polish has a base color glitter with different colored accent pieces mixed in. The bases of the polishes are clear, so what you see in the bottle is what you get on the nail. I used two coats for each swatch and no topcoat. If you're going to wear these, definitely use a topcoat, though. They dry quickly, but rough. Observe:
Glitter In My Stocking reminds me of Thanksgiving. It's mostly bronze gold with red and maybe some silver mixed in (it's hard to tell. Enlarge and see what you think, because I'm just not sure.) The two coats provided adequate, opaque coverage.
My Sleigh's In The Shop is a name that really makes no sense to me, but I like the color. It's a nice purple glitter that flashes warm or cool, depending on the light. There's a little bit of silver mixed in, too.
Two medium coats was just barely enough for even coverage, so you might need to use three, depending.
Ornament For Each Other is a holiday version of one of my favorite polishes, BB Couture Sex on the Beach. The rich cherry red looks great against the accent gold pieces.
Two coats easily covered evenly. This was my favorite out of the collection.
I thought Snowman Of My Dreams was going to be my favorite, but it left a little something to be desired. The light icy blue is the base, but unlike the other colors, the accent colors was a mix of all different colors. There's purple, red, silver, maybe gold? I like it better in the bottle than on the nail.
I used two coats, like all the others, but I could still see some nail underneath. While the first three are probably too opaque for layering, you could probably use one coat of this one as a nice glitter topcoat.
All in all, I really enjoyed this collection. The polishes definitely require a topcoat, but if you're into this look, it's worth it. I just wish Nicole by OPI would change that ridiculous bottle. I know some people like it, and it's certainly recognizable, but still. It's weird. Now I'm just nitpicking, though.
So what do you guys think? Any you have to have?
