Tonight I have 4 polishes from Spellbound Nails 'Twas The Night Before Christmas collection!
Let me start off by saying that while I love very a many indie polish brands, none inspire nail art, like Ashley's do. Maybe it is the collection or polish names or the colors or whatever, but I am always itching to get one of her latest on my fingers with some cutesy nail art.

Tonight I will show you the latest nail art inspired swatches!
I will show them in the same order they appear in the poem:
First up is Visions of Sugar Plums.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar plums danc'd in their heads,

VSP is actually a bit of a softer, lighter purple in person. It leans more dusty lilac than the purple in this photo. Suspended in the jelly are pastel pink hexes and stars, that really give it depth! 
Shown here is 2 easy coats, with base and top coat used. You can see that it built up nicely. There is not much visible nail line at all. Unfortunately, I don't think I mixed it well enough because I wasn't able to get any stars out :(
On my accent nail I used one of the L'oreal Nail stickers from their summer candy collection.

Next up is Eight Tiny Reindeer.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a minature sleigh, and eight tiny rein-deer,

Eight Tiny Reindeer is a red-brown jelly with dark brown and light brown hexes suspended throughout.
Shown here is 2 coats with base and top coat used. I think is built up nicely and while there was a bit more VNL on this polish than VSP, it still isn't very noticeable. I tried my hand at a Rudolph accent nail, but was kind of meh about it. Eh, I tried!

Next up is my favorite one of the bunch!
Bowlful of Jelly!

He had a broad face, and a little round belly
That shook when he laugh'd, like a bowl full of jelly:

I used 2 coats here, with a base and a top coat. I loved how squishy this one appeared. It is filled with red hex glitter and gold holo glitters. I will gladly put up with the VNL for this red. 
Everything about this red is just perfect!
I made a Santa Accent nail to go with this awesome polish!

Last but not least is
And to All a Good Night.

This is a deep blue jelly with blue holo glitter and even holo moons! I had a bit of trouble getting the moons out but other than that it built up nicely in 2 coats. It is dark enough that no VNL is showing. This one was a surprise like for me. The first coat went on kind of murky and it wasn't until 2 coats that the blue really came out.
I added a Rudolph and another reindeer as accent nails. Santa is heading home!

Ashley also has a ton of scents that she offers for her polishes! For these 4 I chose Hot Cocoa, Red Hot Cinnamon, Peach and Christmas Tree! I loved all the scents. They are nice and light, not over powering, but truly smell like the description.
