Grace-Full Nail Polish Christmas Memories Collection 2016

Grace-Full Nail Polish is the best for sparklies. I know I say that a lot...and I always mean it. Ms Theresa really goes all out for Christmas, and this year is no exception. Come see what she's giving us this year. There are definitely a few must-have shades here.

Grace-Full Nail Polish Christmas Memories Collection 2016



(promotional samples ahead)

Pavlova Roll
This is a deep mulberry jellyish shade filled with holo glitter and holo shards. It is firey and squishy and delicious. It applies so smooth and glossy, and I only needed two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.

Cherry Best Friend
Reds make me happy. They are my go-to "glamvampazon" shade. Doesn't matter if it is a bright cheerful cherry like this or a deep dark wine...I love them all. And this shade is right up at the top of the list. It is full of fine holo, holo glitters and a delicate gold shimmer at certain angles. It has a luminosity like a jelly, but it applies like a good cream. I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.

Family Tradition
This is an electric coral with a hot pink underbelly. It has a dusting of pink and gold flakes and an alluring squish. I admit I was a bit worried when I first unwrapped this shade. Corals + Me don't always equal "happily ever after". But that hot pink cools the shade just enough that I find it flattering. The formula was great, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.

Nan's Copper
Oh, how I love neutrals. You guys know how I love them. This is the perfect shade of copper. In daylight, it has a faint blush to it, like a freshly polished pan. My fancy lights washed it out, but I promise you'll see it indoors and out. The holo is just gravy here. I could wear this color everyday and never tire of it. It has a soft metallic glow that brings it to a very modern place. The formula is exactly what you want from this brand, and I used two thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite.

Zibibbo
Hello, amazing glitter. Hello. This is a crazy holo gold holo glittery holo holo holo. Did I mention holo? Because yeaaaah. This is wonderful. It is molten stardust on my nails. I can't even begin to imagine how this would look in the sunshine, but I am fairly sure that I could signal aliens with it. For a dense glitter like this, the formula was stunning, and I used two normal coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for an opaque, smooth finish.

Grown Up Christmas Tree
If my grown-up tree looked this good, I would leave it up all year round. This warm green is full of multichrome flakes and holo sparkle. I love that this is a departure from the normal green  that one would expect this time of year. I used two coats here, but I think next time I will try a third. Oooh, or maybe over a deep forest?

Christmas Eve Magic
This is Pavlova's moody sister. This deep cerulean blue squish is filled with holo sparks and sparkle. It has a brilliance that is hard to achieve in such a deep, dark base. The formula was magical, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here. I can't wait to use this as the base for a sky-themed manicure.

Childhood Wonder
It would not be Christmas without a silver. Bonus points for the red and green glitters floating around with the tiniest of silver flakes. This is one of those shades that looks alive when you apply it. It does dry with a slight texture, and I think I might use a layer of Gelous next time. It is totally opaque in two thin coats, which is awesome.
