The 12 Days of Christmas Polishes: Day 2
Happy Tuesday and welcome to Day 2. On the second day of Christmas Polishes, the spa mom swatched for me Essie's Loophole layered with China Glaze's Tinsel Town. I had two different inspirations for this look. I wanted something silvery in keeping with the Christmas theme (think Silver Bells), and I also got a great bracelet from New York & Company to wear to a Christmas party. The hue of Tinsel Town looked exactly like the bracelet.
Loophole is my first Essie purchase. I LOVE this polish! The first coat went on so smoothly that I really didn't need a second one. Out of habit, I applied that second coat and the finish was amazing. The silver color is beautiful and the polish is really high quality. I wanted something sliver and festive, and couldn't find any other color at the beauty supply store that I liked as much. Now that I have an Essie product, I plan on purchasing many more!
I applied Tinsel Town over Loophole to achieve that holiday look. This glitter polish looks like it is silvery-black in the bottle. However, when I applied it to my nail, it appeared icy-blue. While I thought the polish was very pretty, it wasn't what I expected at all. I applied a few coats of Tinsel Town to my nails so that they would look similar to my bracelet. I do like this color, but I must admit that I think Essie's Loophole looked better by itself. During these 12 days of Christmas Polishes, I am going to try to incorporate the beautiful silver polish to another holiday look.
Thanks so much for reading! Come back tomorrow for the 3rd look. Have a wonderful day!
