Limited Edition Holiday Trio by Lacquer Lust, Polished by KPT and Serum No. 5

Thanksgiving is over and that means it is finally time for holiday and winter themed manicures. What better way to start than with a limited edition Holiday Trio of indie polishes. This trio is a collaboration between three wonderful indie polish makers, Lacquer Lust, Polished by KPT and Serum No. 5. Between the three of them, this set has it all... holo, thermal, glitter and glow in the dark. What more could you ask for?...

Lacquer Lust Ho Ho Holodays!
An olive green linear holographic shade with a gold shimmer. This is a really unique holographic shade because of that gold shimmer overlay. When the holo hides, the shimmer comes out to play. The photos unfortunately didn't capture much of the shimmer. I love, love, love this color! The holographic effect is just beautiful! It has a very nice formula that is easy to apply. It goes on smooth and provides full coverage at three coats. Swatches are with no top coat...

Oh how I love holographic polishes! I could stare at this all day...

Polished by KPT Naughty & Nice
A rose pink to deep berry red thermal shade with gold and purple flakie shimmer. It is a deep berry red when cold and a rose pink when warm. When the fingers are warm and the tips of the nails are cold, it results in beautiful transitions between the two colors. The formula is very nice. It is easy to apply and three coats provides good coverage in the cold state. It dries with a bit of a satin finish, so I used a top coat for these swatches...

In the cold state it is a deep berry red. The gold flakie shimmer is most visible in this state. Can you see the scattered purple flecks too? So pretty...

A state of transition. I've discovered that my ring finger takes the longest to warm up. Should I be worried? :)

This was a common resting state for me. The tips dark and the rest light. It almost looks a bit tricolor here with a red band separating the two colors. I really love how this looks...

In the warm state it is a beautiful rose pink. I had a difficult time capturing this state because I was cold while trying to swatch (or maybe I'm just cold blooded). No amount of warming my hands up seemed to help. You can see the tips of the index and pinkie nails starting to turn here...

So beautiful...

Serum No 5 Yule Light Up My Life
An incredible mix of over 30 different glitters in a clear, glow in the dark base. This polish is two in one for me. It is a powerful glitter bomb that can be layered over any base for a beautiful manicure during the day. At night it glows brilliantly in the dark. I used two coats over Lacquer Lust Ho Ho Holodays! The application was very nice. It was easy to apply and get lots of glitter onto the nail. Swatches are with a top coat...

This is the first glow in the dark polish that I have encountered which actually lights up enough to show off the glitter it contains. It isn't quite this detailed in reality since the eyes can't focus as well as the camera does. The glow of this, however, is amazing!

I also layered this over Polished by KPT Naughty & Nice. This time I used just one generous coat of Yule Light Up My Life glitter over the base. Again, the glitter spread nicely over the nails and I love that there is no fishing needed to get the larger glitter out. Swatches are with a top coat...

Although I couldn't quite see this in reality, it seems to be picking up some of the base color resulting in a slightly pink tinted glow. I'm wonder if this is due to the fact that I used one coat instead of two for this manicure. At two coats, as I showed above, it was glowing white...
