OPI's "Holiday Glow"

Happy Hump Day, everyone! I took a vacation day on Monday, so I keep feeling like I'm a day behind. But it's so nice thinking that tomorrow's Wednesday, when it's really Thursday!


I decided to try out an older color of mine tonight and share it with all of you. I purchased OPI's "Holiday Glow" in October of 2010. I found it at a Merle Norman store in Bettendorf, Iowa while I was traveling for work. I guess you could say I was kind of "dusty hunting". I had never seen or heard of this color before, so I thought I better snag it while I could! This color was part of OPI's 2009 Holiday Wishes Collection. Also part of that collection were some of my all-time favorites: Merry Midnight and Sapphire In The Snow (That reminds me...I need to swatch SITS for you all, too!).


I don't know why I've never worn this color before tonight (or the other two hundred or so of my un-trieds!). It's so pretty! Probably not the best color for summer, but I WILL be wearing it again in the fall! It's a beautiful chocolate brown with gold (and a little bit of red and dark pink!) glitter. And in certain lights, you can almost see a reddish-purple glitter, too!


Application:
Deborah Lippmann 2 Second Nail Primer
1 coat Seche Clear Base Coat
3 coats of OPI's "Holiday Glow"
1 coat of Gelous Top Coat
1 coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
1 spritz CND SolarSpeed Spray

  8. I agree, this IS an awesome polish! But then again, I'm a huge fan of vampy colors, and it's not very often that I meet one I don't like! And the fact that it's OPI (probably one of my favorite brands) makes me love it that much more!
    Thanks, everyone, for your awesome comments - I appreciate them all!
