Glitter Lambs new 2014 Christmas glitters, first set!

Aaaand the holidays are upon us, and so are the wonderful Christmas nail polish collections. It’s a great time of year to collect indie polishes as they are SO creative! Glitter Lambs polishes never disappoint and Jamie’s 2014 collections are amazing. Since I have eight to share with you and a lot of graphics, I’ll break this up into two posts with four polishes each. These polishes can be ordered now for a mere $4.94 each! Wowza πŸ™‚

Here are the first four I'll be sharing with you! From left: SnowBall, Christmas In The Desert, It's Snowing Cotton Candy, Christmas Jelly Roll

You HAVE to have snowy glitters in your winter polish arsenal, even for the simplest holiday mani. First up is SnowBall!

SnowBall! I used this one over OPI's Ski Slope Sweetie on the ring finger, and Sinful Colors Amazonian on the others.

SnowBall is a clear based glitter topper of very concentrated white matte micro glitters. Perfect for adding a snow effect to that wintery mani! I’d say it’s an essential!

Here is a macro of Snowball on my nail:

I’ve never spent “Christmas In The Desert” but if I did, it’d be cool if it looked like this!

Christmas In The Desert inspired me to decorate a few Joshua trees!

Christmas In The Desert is a multicolored glitter topper with various sizes of glitters from micro to large hexagons, in shades of red, silver, holographic, green, gold, light blue. It is stunning and perfect whether used as a gradient or for special effects.

Here is a macro!

Very verstile! I used CITD over Zoya Godiva (sand), Zoya Veruschka (trees) and Finger Paints Degas Look At This! (gold underneath).

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it really DID snow cotton candy? “It’s Snowing Cotton Candy” must have been inspired by Jamie’s love for sweets! LOL JK Jamie, I crave it too! πŸ˜‰

It's Snowing Cotton Candy is so lovely and delicate it will melt in your mouth! Oh, wait, you can't eat it, it just LOOKS delicious.

It’s Snowing Cotton Candy is described as, “This is a clear base filled with mini pink stars and different sizes and shapes of iridescent glitter. 1 coat will give you very little stars. 3 coats will obviously be more. * If you would like a small baggie of pink glitter stars to come with this then please message me in the notes when you buy this. *You could easily leave the mini pink stars off and this could create a whole new look with just iridescent glitter on the nail. It’s up to you on how you do your mani but you can pull off two gorgeous looks with this glitter topper that is with or without stars. This is one stunning glitter topper!”

And the last of my first four Glitter Lambs Christmas polishes for 2014 is Christmas Jelly Roll!

Of course, although I’m not really an artist, but I gave it my best shot painting a jelly roll on my accent nail. I think it’s got raspberry filling!

I painted Christmas Jelly Roll over Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer in Sugar Plum.

And finally, Christmas Jelly Roll up close and yummy! Christmas Jelly Roll is described as, “a clear base filled with so many glitters. Every time you pull the brush out of the bottle you will get something different. This has pink hex in a .008 saturated throughout the entire bottle with some scattered silver dots, hex in different sizes and colors such blue, green, red, blue, then there is a gold and silver hex mix in different sizes. There is also a black and silver mix in many different sizes, lime green shreds, pink holographic squares, pink and red mix of many different sizes, and then some iridescent rainbow glitters throughout.”

A Zoya Candy Corn mani

Happy October 1st! Bring on the candy! πŸ˜‰ And speaking of candy…I’ve been wanting to create a candy corn mani this month but unsure which polishes I’d use. So there I sat this morning in front of my polish shelves (yes shelves, don’t judge) and pondered. My eyes fell upon a row of Zoya Pixie Dusts and the light came on. It’s almost like those bottles of Pixie goodness glowed to get my attention. Okay, that might be a little dramatic, but I was pretty excited with my vision πŸ˜‰

Halloween worthy mani, candy corn, just not the edible kind.

I settled on using Solange for the yellow, Dhara for the orange and a coat of Cosmo over white for the candy corn nails.

Solange is as described as a gold metal foil sparkle featuring a Zoya EXCLUSIVE GOLD PIGMENT in the best-selling Zoya PixieDust Textured, Matte, Foil Twinkle formula. Dahra is described as a firey orange copper with a matte, textured, sparkling metal finish. Cosmo, a Magical Pixie Dust, is described as a silver crystal sparkle, textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent particles.

A little history about candy corn you may not know! Candy corn, the little yellow, orange, and white treat has it’s root dating back more than a century. It is said that a candy maker, George Renninger, of the renowned Wunderlee Candy Company in Philadelphia, invented the tri-color confection in the 1880s. The Goelitz Confectionery Company brought the candy to the everyone at the turn of the 20th century. The Jelly Belly Candy Co., now owns that company and has the longest history in the industry of making candy corn, and it still uses the original recipe. There are of course other companies who make candy cone, but with varied ingredients.

Get your Pixie dusts at Zoya.com or Ulta Stores and see what you can create!

I did a bit of research on the candy jewelry craze. I found out the retro confections of candy necklaces and bracelets entered the market in 1958! I KNEW they go way back because I always remember them around my whole childhood. But enough with the trivia!
Today I’m showcasing another gorgeous glitter topper from Glitter Lambs. Just to show you how versatile this bountiful bottle of beauty is, I swatched it with a variety of shades.
