Potion Polish Holiday 2015 Festive Fancies Collection Swatches & Review

Hi there! I have a new collection from indie brand Potion Polish to share with you today called Festive Fancies. This nine piece Holiday collection features lots of glitter, with a mix of jelly, crelly, holographic, and clear bases.

Let's Get Elf'd Up is a deep burgundy holographic mixed with tiny blue glitter throughout. This is an intensely pigmented shade, a little thin but really opaque. The holo aspect has a nice mix of linear and scattered bits. This is two coats.

Silver Skates is a dense combination of silver flakes, silver and light blue holographic glitter in various sizes and shapes. This is substantial enough to be a stand-alone polish, and though you probably could layer it, it would most likely cover up the underlying polish a lot. It was a little thick, but wasn't difficult to use and it dried quickly. I used two coats but you might need three.

Mistletoe Smooches is a "Christmas Tree" green linear holographic with a bunch of gold holographic glitter added. I am head over heels with this, green and gold is one of my favorite combinations! Great opacity and easy to apply. This is two coats.

Snow Day has a bright white crelly base with blue metallic flakies, blue shimmer and light blue glitters hexes and squares. This had a pretty opaque white for a base, more so than most white crellies I have. It was a little thick but not too difficult to manipulate. This is three coats.

Pretty Pink Tree is a light pink linear holographic with a touch of lavender, with rose gold holo glitter added in various sizes. Another more unique combination, and so beautiful. This was great to apply and very easy, two coats here as well.

Reindeer Tracks is a holiday glitter mix of circles and hexes in red, gold and green glitter in various sizes and a sprinkle of gold and silver dust in a clear base. I put one coat over OPI Christmas Gone Plaid. This was easy to get a lot of glitter on the nail without trying and was nice to apply without having to manipulate the pieces. I like the addition of gold in this festive glitter topper!

No Peeking! is a deep eggplant purple crelly with a splash of scattered holographic glitter and a pinch of blue iridescent glitter. I found this one on the thicker side and a little difficult to spread. This is two thick coats. If you can manage thinner coats, you may need three.

Treetop Angel is a pale gold holographic with gold metallic flakies. This went on really easily and dried super fast. I only needed two coats for this. This is a unique combination that I haven't seen before. I love gold!

On the Nice List is a lustrous sapphire blue with a strong gold shimmer and gold holographic glitters in varying sizes. This applied well, but was a teensy bit brushstrokey. I feel like the glitters get out shown by the in-your-face shimmer, but I liked the night sky effect it has. Two coats here.

This collection will be available for purchase on Friday, December 4th at 3pm EST on the Potion Polish website. They will range in price from $8.50 to $9.00 each, with the complete collection selling for $70.00. I'm glad to have found Potion Polish, they are a great indie brand! I really like the set as a whole, it feels very cohesive while providing some uniqueness for the holiday season. My picks are Mistletoe Smooches, Pretty Pink Tree, and Reindeer Tracks. Tell me which ones you would pick!
