The Hungry Asian Holiday 2013 Collection Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! I have some awesome new polishes from my friend Kae, aka The Hungry Asian. She's been making polish for a few years and I've shown you some in the past. She's just put out seven new shades for the 2013 Holiday season and it is my great joy to show them off to you!

First is Snow Sprinkles, a white jelly creme with teal, blue, red & pink glitters and baby pink stars. I love the combo of the glitters in this, it is holiday but also Americana! I love the stars in this, but you can just barely see the one on my middle finger, it's a little hidden. This is three coats. You could layer one or two over a white creme for a more opaque look, but I think the appeal of these is to see the layers of glitter, the depth, haha.

Next is Frigid Digits, which you might've seen a peek of last week if you follow me on Instagram. This is an icy teal glitter in all sizes with some white glitters in bars, squares, hexes, and dots in a clear base. The white glitters really make the blue pop huh! I layered two heavy coats over Zoya Natty.

Here is Evergreen, a squishy creme that shines like crazy. It's a dark olive green with tons of green microglitter and some subtle blue and gold multicolored pigment bits. I absolutely LOVE this polish. It's deep and not in your face Christmasy but nicely fits with the season I think. This is two coats.

This one is called Sleigh Bells Bling (such a cute name). It's a green and red glitter mix of all shapes and sizes with a gorgeous gold shimmer in a clear base. Another hit for me! This reminds me of a bag of ribbons and bows all mixed up and glowing from holiday lights or something. I used two coats over Evergreen.

Happy Blue Year is so excellent, just so fun and pretty. It's a dark blue jelly with red, purple, and silver glitters and larger silver holo hexes. I found it really easy to apply and spread the glitter on this one, which I wasn't expecting. This is three coats.

Next is Secrets, a scattered holographic dusty purple with tiny red sparkles. My camera kept wanting to make this more blue toned, so I had to correct it. I think it's pretty close to the true color. This one is really pretty and glows just right in the sun. Two coats here.

And last is Who Needs Diamonds?, a seriously blingy gold hex glitter and shimmer polish. Kae said she meant this to be a one coat layering polish but I used two here for more impact over a black creme. I love how reflective the glitters are, you need to see this baby in action! Also, the glitters lay flat, no curling. I freaking live for gold so this is right up my alley.
