Milani Cosmetics has twelve new polishes out for Spring 2013, creams and glitters. Since I work at CVS, I got first dibs and grabbed all the new glitter polishes. These polishes are unlike any I have and I really liked the way they applied and wore.

Aside from creams, the This Is The End collection also has three sparkly polishes: Deep Magic, Stone Table and Always Winter And Never Christmas.
Deep Magic is full of blue holo glitters in a clear base.
This is two coats -- one is put on regularly, and the other is dabbed on -- over When He Shakes His Mane.
I absolutely love this glitter. Shades of blue and teal are my favorite to wear.
Here is a shot of Deep Magic in the bottle. It's like a pool of sparkles.
Stone Table is a white crelly with the green/purple/blue shimmer (as seen in the other creams) and iridescent glitter. I really love how this polish ties together the creams and the glitters in this collection. It kind of reminds me of that shiny cement that can be made a counter top, if that makes any sense.
I did three coats of Stone Table on its own and it was not opaque, but I imagine that one or two over white would do the trick, if that's the look you are going for!
Here it is in direct sunlight. I like that it almost melts into my fingernails.
Stone Table in the bottle. This picture gives a really good feel of the different colored shimmer and sparkles.
Look at this! Always Winter And Never Christmas is a glitter bomb made up of various shapes and sizes of holo glitter, aka TOTALLY AWESOME.
I didn't have black (or other dark-colored) polish with me at the time, so I decided to just put it over Essie In The Cab-ana. I love the way the bar glitters catch the light.
I did two coats, but you could do more or less depending on how sparkly you want to be!
These polishes are available from Love, Angeline Polish!
For those of you who do not know (which may be all of you reading this!) I am a huge fan of The Chronicles of Narnia. I've read them all more than once and I even own one big, fancy book that contains all seven novels. I am fairly new to the indie polish world, so I was excited when I came across Love, Angeline Polish and saw that there was going to be a Narnia-themed collection. Here are the four creams of the collection: Sons of Adam, Daughters of Eve, When He Shakes His Mane and For Aslan!

I'm really terrible at doing themed nails, only because when I paint my nails I'm not usually thinking about it! But this year, I tried to do some Christmas-y nails, if only because anything sparkly reminds me of Christmas. It works out in my brain. Anyway, this post is of all the nails I did around Christmas time (so be prepared for many pictures!).

I came across Mosheen a while ago while at Ulta, and ended up buying it and a few other things because I had a 20% off coupon. Mosheen is made up of shiny, blue bar glitters and little round iridescent sparkles in a sheer, blue base.

I work at CVS, and when nail polish goes on sale, I buy it. I got two of the new Parfumerie polishes from Revlon. The first one I wore is called Wintermint, and it smells like a nice, sweet peppermint. I couldn't stop sniffing my nails!
These pictures were among the ones in my last post that were corrupted files, so I only have a few.
