All I want for Christmas is OPI


Who else loves Christmas themed nail polishes?
Well I couldn't wait to paint my nails with this verry merry red lacquer for weeks now.

Nails of the day by Mariah Carey x OPI

All I want for Christmas is OPI
A deep, poinsettia red. 
I used two coats and it does get darker the more coats you add.

 
These are all three nail treatments I used.

Mariah Carey x OPI "My Favorite Ornament" & "All I want for Christmas is OPI."
Followed by a polymer top coat by Julep. The top coat dries in less than 5 minutes w/no smudges, I was able to wash the dishes without hesitation 20 mins later! It also has a gel like shine.
I got the topcoat using my Sephora VIB 100pts at checkout.


I also swatched "My Favorite Ornament" on it's own w/out a top coat.
Its UBER shiny and sparkly and has truly the texture of what a glitter dipped ornament would feel like! Although, I recommend putting a topcoat because it's a bit irritating when you feel it, just an odd sensation. Also the topcoat keeps it from chipping, otherwise this chipped in a day.


It's really a stunning shade of red and the glitter glistens like no other.
My favorite holiday mani!

Merry Christmas Everyone! 
I'll be back to posting after the holidays, I have a lot of moving to do (moving into my first home!). I'll be back.
 I promise.

  1. Gorgeous colors - your nails are all set for Christmas! I cannot believe you found time for a mani with everything you have going on, now I know I have no excuse not to paint my nubby nails, LOL.
