I recently had the pleasure of sharing my very first Naild’ It polishes with you, and today I bring you a couple more from her recent Holiday 2012 collection!

First up, a fun and gorgeous polish, Light Show, described as a  lavender “jelly base with neon lights and black wire/bulb bases.” And once I read that description, it totally reminded me of Christmas lights! I could even imagine the black “bulb bases,” lol. The base colour is a faint grey-lilac, with tiny holographic particles that are visible in direct light. And the neon and bright glitters! Love!!

Here are two coats over base coat, topped with a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat:


Look at this slightly blurry pic to see the holographic shimmer that I mentioned:

NaildIt_LightShowSee them dance against the neon glitter pieces? I love the complexity of this polish!


Up next I have Snow Queen, an aptly-named polish that could almost have been part of a Disney Princess movie. Naild’ It describes it as a “white shimmer base with fierce blue eyes and black crows.”  I really see a bright, shimmery silver base polish, perfect for winter and totally reminding me of a Snow Queen.

Here are two coats with base and top coat:


Snow Queen could totally be layered over base colour if you wanted to brighten its effects, but I love the silver sheen the two coats provided here…

Naild’ It polishes are available on  Etsy, as well as from Llarowe, Overall Beauty, and MeiMei’s Signatures.

Nicole by OPI has collaborated with the Kardashians again for six new limited-edition Kardashian Kolors! These are being released just in time for the holiday season, hitting store shelves in November 2012. They are gorgeous!

“Whether celebrating the holidays traditionally at home with the entire family or jet-setting the season away, the Kardashians spread cheer with glitz and glamour, starting with their nails!” declares Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The six captivating Kardashian Kolor Holiday shades offer the perfect way to add lots of color to this joyous time of year. Wear vibrant red, purple and teal for a jewel-toned look, or glittery gold, silver, and blue glitter for a classic holiday sparkle – both important trends for the season.”
