K*Sea Gale's Nails Winter Holiday Collection Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations!

*Press Sample*
Today I will be sharing the Winter Holiday Collection from K*Sea Gale's Nails.  The collection consists of 7 polishes, a glitter shimmer, 1 shimmers and 5 holographic polishes.  All are available now on her Etsy shop.

Now let's get to the swatches!

First up is Sleigh (you know, that vehicle the jolly dude drives), a deep red holographic polish.  It leans more burnt umber red and is perfect for fall and winter!  This is a perfect 1 coater, but photos show 2 coats for good measure with a shiny top coat.

Next is what pulls the sleigh - Reindeer.  Reindeer is a chocolate brown holographic that is completely opaque in 1 coat.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Family is a golden shimmer with hints of pink glimmer throughout.  For me, time with family during the holiday is golden, so this is the perfect name for this polish.  Family is lovely and a great work appropriate color if you need to stay on the professional side.  I was pleased that the formula worked well with my heavy hands it applied nicely in 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Eve is a dark midnight blue holographic polish.  When it's a clear cold evening, the sky resembles this color.  This stunner is also opaque in 1 coat like the other holographic polishes.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

One of my favorites is Wish List, which is a light pink holographic polish with gold shimmer and pink glitters.  I love the softness of this polish.  I think of wishes as soft whispers in the wind...and this polish really connects that image for me.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Next is the glitter shimmer called It's Snowing.  Somehow KC was able to get the formula to resemble the look of snow falling while looking out at the snow covered landscape.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

The last polish of the collection is called Evergreen, a dusty green pine colored holographic polish.  While I was swatching this, I had just turned on our wax melt warmer and the smell of evergreens and Christmas trees were in the air - it was pure perfection!  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Be sure to check out my YouTube channel in the next day for the accompanying swatch video.

Loves:  I love the imagery that this collection created.  I love that KC creates original holographic polishes in colors and hues that haven't been seen before.  Her formulas somehow always hit the nail on the head and every holographic polish was a one coater!

Wishes: I was in a rush to play with these polishes, so I do wish I tested stamping and water marble on them - all her other holographic polishes stamped and water marbled, so I'm hopeful and excited to try.  I will share once I find out!

So, what is your favorite part of the holidays?  The Evergreen trees?  The stories of Sleighs and Reindeers?  Looking at Wish Lists or creating your own?  Snow in the cold Eves?  Or time spent with Family?

Happy Polishing,
