Out today for Preorder, here is the second part of the lovely Holiday collection from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics!
Up first is a frosty sheer light blue with sublte iridescent flakes, like snowflakes flurrying through the icy winter sky!
As I usually do with sheers, I used an undie of black to make the color pop. This is two layers of storm over black, and a thin layer of topcoat. Although my pictures are not doing them any justice, in person the flakes catch the light as your hand turns. I love a good "frosty" polish that doesn't resemble the eyeshadow polishes any beginning polish maker has tried - this applies without streaking and is very smooth. I do wish so much I could have caught the flakes better to show you their beauty!
Up next is one of my favorites from the new collection, Of Yule and Hearth. This is a clear base packed full of the most holo glowing micro glitter - or is it large pigment? - I've ever seen. In all lights it seems to be on fire.
Although this one is in a sheer base, I wanted to showcase it on it's own. This is 3 generous coats with a layer of Glitterslayer, not to smooth it as it lays flat, but to give it some depth. It really looks like a fire on the nail, and freely brings to mind flames from a yule log.
Here is a video of it's glorious sparkle, taken from my Instagram!
Last but certainly not least, Silent Night, a light blue sheer base with holographic glitter and twinkling stars!
These polishes are sure to get your nails noticed at parties this holiday season - and also make great stocking stuffers (or gifts for Hanukah!). Emily will be starting the preorder today, 11/13/13, at 4:30 EST, and the official release date on her shop will be November 27th. Thanks for reading!
