The One With the Christmas Holly


Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  It is beyond freezing outside.  I cannot get over how cold it has gotten.  Nor can I get over the fact that it's December 15th.  Ten more days until Christmas.  I really do not know where the time has gone this year.

As promised, I am going to start bringing you Christmas manicures.  I came up with today's holly manicure.  I have done a few holly designs in the past, but I've never really liked them.  This one I liked better than the previous, but still not 100% my favorite.

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Zoya - Alicia
  • Zoya - Merida
  • Zoya - Blaze
I purposely got these Zoya polishes for Christmas manicures.  Right before Halloween, Zoya had an awesome promo.  If you made a $22 purchase, you would receive Alicia, Merida, and Finley free.  Of course I purchased three polishes so it basically was a BOGO deal.  How could you pass up a deal with those gorgeous scattered holos?

Alicia is a gorgeous silver scattered holo, which I have used a couple of times already.  I can see myself purchasing numerous back up bottles of this beauty because it's a perfect polish for an accent nail.  Two coats and full coverage.



Merida....oh Merida you are one gorgeous polish.  I really wanted to take off my nail art and paint this beauty on all 10 of my nails.  Two coats and full coverage.  A perfect green.  Look at that holo!!!!


Blaze is one of the original scattered holos.  I never owned it so I purchased it as part of my BOGO deal.  When the bottle came in the mail, it looked more pink than the swatches I had seen by other bloggers.  After applying one coat, I quickly saw that it was a gorgeous red shade.  I think together with all that holo in the bottle, it makes it look pink.  But on the nail it is clearly red.

What do you think?  Fan of these polishes?  Fan of this design??

I cannot wait to use these polishes for more Christmas manicures.  They're just so perfect!!  I am beyond happy that I bought them.

Until next time, <3.
