Twenty Seven Polish: Merry Mistletoe

It's the most wonderful time of the year! The mall downstairs is decorated with greenery and bows, the buildings downtown are covered in light displays 20 stories tall, and I can finally leave my windows open without turning the apartment into a discount sauna. Truly a Christmas miracle!

Now that we've hit December I'm ready to break out some holiday nails, starting with Merry Mistletoe, a glitter topper from Twenty Seven Polish.

This is about a coat and a half over Bandi F706, City Green; I applied one coat of Merry Mistletoe as usual, then dabbed a bit over some spots to fill it in just a little, rather than apply a full, second coat. Merry Mistletoe isn't as dense as most indie glitters, which I think works in its favour. I really enjoyed all the colours and shapes in it, and with this slightly scattered application, they show up nicely against the deep, green base.

Merry Mistletoe contains several types of matte glitters. There are medium green hexes, small white hexes and bars, and bright, beautiful shards of red. As a general rule, I don't like bar glitter, but I think it works well here, making Merry Mistletoe just that little bit more festive and contrasting nicely against the other shapes without pulling too much of the focus. I love it with a glitter comes together!

    1. Thanks, Estivalia! I've almost always lived in warmer climates, and you're right--it definitely makes it harder to get into the spirit when you're still wearing sandals. ;)

    1. Thanks! Fortunately the heat has finally broken--we went from mid-80's to mid-60's pretty much literally overnight, thanks to (and I use the term 'thanks' loosely here) the fact that it's been raining for about a week straight. >_<

    1. Thank you, Maria! Husband didn't get that it was a glitter polish, since it doesn't sparkle, so I had to introduce him to the idea of matte glitter...I think he's intrigued yet baffled by the concept. ;)
