Indie Review: Daphine Polish Holiday Collection

*Press Sample
*3 Free & Cruelty Free

Hello! I just had my after dinner snack. I was going to munch a Swiss Roll, but I opted for a yogurt instead. I am trying to make healthier choices. My nephew happily shared it with me. He just recently started eating solid foods and he sure loved my peach yogurt!

Tonight I have 3 lovely Holiday polishes from a new-to-me indie, Daphine Polish. I really loved these. I swatched each of the 3 over 2 different shades of polish, so you could really get a feel for them.
You bet your butt this post is photo heavy!

First up is Skating, swatched over 2 coats of Essie Turquoise & Caicos with 1 coat of NYC Top coat.

Skating is an awesome glitter topper made up of metallic, matte and holo blue glitters in 3 different shades, metallic silver glitter and silver holo diamonds. It is all in a clear base with a nice subtle gold shimmer.
The above macro gives you a good look at all of the different glitters and the
gold shimmer.

This is 1 coat of Skating. Shown here in the shade.
The formula on this polish was awesome. All of these polishes were packed with glitter and are well suspended in their base. There was no sinkage what so ever. I gave the bottle a good shake before use and using the glob and spread method, I still got plenty of the diamonds out.

Next, I swatched it over Sinful Colors Hot Spot. I used 2 coats  of Skating for this swatch. 1 coat of NYC topcoat over all. I used a BM stamp plate for my accent nail.
I like it over the mint polish the best!

Next up is Rudolph's Nose. I swatched 1 coat over 2 coats of SH Pink Satin, with 1 coat of NYC topcoat over all.

Rudolph's Nose is made up of red metallic and matte glitters, with a sprinkle of holo glitter and a green iridescent glitter, all in a clear base! I enjoyed this over the metallic pink.

Here is another shot in the shade. I like how this glitter will be able to be used for several different holidays. I love a versatile glitter!
The formula on this one was also great. It went on smoothly and I felt I got plenty of glitter out of the bottle, even with just one coat.

Next I swatched this over a nice Christmas green, for a super holiday feel! The green polish I used is a Maybelline Express Finish, which I don't think exists anymore.
I used 2 coats of Rudolph's Nose for these swatches! ! coat of NYC topcoat over all.

I think the next one, might have my favorite swatches. But you can decide which you like best!

This one is called Christmas in a Bottle. I am not sure how the name could be any more appropriate!
This glitter is made up of green and red matte glitter, gold and silver holo glitters and even gold holo stars. 
Shown here is 1 coat of CiaB over Loreal Charmed, I'm Sure in the shade. 1 coat of NYC topcoat over all.

I am dying. I loved this combination. I used 2 coats of CiaB over Julep Misti from the December Maven box. 1 coat of NYC topcoat over all.

So pretty! The formula on this one was just as good as the others. It was a little difficult to get some of the stars out, but I did just a little fishing and I was able to get at least one for each nail.

On my accent nail, I painted a small silver Christmas Tree and I placed one of the stars at the top of it.

Overall, I absolutely loved these polishes from Daphine Polish. I can't wait to see what polishes and collections she comes out with next! She is a an indie maker to watch, that is for sure!

You should follow Daphine Polish on Facebook and check out her Etsy for more looks at her polishes!

Did these polishes get you in the Christmas spirit? I keep hearing Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree in my head. 

See you soon!
