Christmas Nails!

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!).

Zoya Nail Polish - Mosheen

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.

Revlon - Wintermint

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.

Liquid Sky Lacquer - Great White

Let me just start by saying that Great White Sharks are probably my favorite animal of all time.  They are beautiful, majestic animals that are a huge part of watery ecosystems all over the world.  If I could, I would have my life's work be in shark conservation, because it's WAY more important than a lot of people think it is.  That being said, this polish, fittingly called Great White, is something I had to own.

Revlon - Coast Is Clear

In Rhode Island (and there are a few in other states... why?), we have this great (and I use that term loosely) store called the Ocean State Job Lot.  I have no idea what the name even means, except for the "Ocean State" part, but sometimes you can find some diamonds in the rough.  One example is this great Revlon polish called Coast Is Clear that I got for $1.49!

Liquid Glam Lacquer - Fancy Huh?

Liquid Glam Lacquer Fancy Huh? is a multitude of hot pink, purple and black glitters in a milky pink base.  It kind of reminds me of cupcakes, or frosting.  Or maybe cupcakes with frosting.

Zoya - Payton

Oh man, Zoya has done it again!  Payton is a beautiful deep purple-y red (it is described on the website as "galactic cranberry" and I have to say that's quiet accurate) with tiny holographic glitters.

Euphoric Lacquer - Senter of the Universe

 Here I have my very first Euphoric Lacquer nail polish!  It's called Senter of the Universe, which was named after @senteroftheuniverse_nails on Instagram.  (If you don't follow Blair, you really should -- she has awesome nail art and great swatches.)

Liquid Afterglow Lacquer - Oddviously Vintage

Oddviously Vintage is a polish like I've never seen.  It's a clear base with pastel glitters -- round, light yellow circles, and blue/yellow/pink squares/hexes.  They're also kind of metallic.  And it's AWESOME.
