It's Christmas Week!!!!!

Ok,I give up. I'm totally into Christmas now! While I'm not decking the halls just yet,I am deciding to embrace the season for what it is; a time to eat,spend time with my family, and be merry. To honor my rediscovered Christmas spirit, this week will be dominated by Christmas-themed manis. I'll only be swatching polishes that are green,red,gold,silver,or burgundy. I promise it won't be boring.

Today's colour is... green!

I like this green because it is different from the others in my stash.It's slightly frosty,slightly shimmery and is a bit more blue in real life than it is in pictures. Another great thing? This is just 2 coats! The only thing I didn't like is the bottle,which is oddly shaped and difficult to store. I hate them.

I went a bit oddball with this selection.Technically this is a summer colour, (released as a part of China Glaze's Kicks collection). But I don't follow colour seasons so I'm making it a winter one. It's a vibrant astro-turf green that should off-set any red nicely. The only problem with this one is the opacity,I still had visible nail lines at 3 coats. Bah!

And if you have 10 minutes to kill you can watch this video featuring one of the most elaborately decorated houses I have ever seen. I shudder to think what their electric bill is.

Merry Christmas!

Ginger-who actually has a Christmas tree now! I'll be leaving it up until February :)
