Viewer Review: Looking for Holiday nail polish?

Thanks to Makeherup reader Clare for the great review!

Green With Envy

With the holidays coming up, I was all set to show off my Christmas cheer with a trip to my manicurist and a fresh coat of NARS Zulu nail polish. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t act quick enough and Sephora is completely sold out and unsure if they will be able to re-stock in time for Christmas to meet the demand. I was devastated, but not as devastated as I was when I learned my treasured bottle of OPI-Jasper Park (now discontinued) was lost somewhere between London and Paris on a Christmas European vacation. So if you’re like me and you need finger-ly Christmas décor, have no fear, Zoya comes bearing gifts.

Zoya’s “Suvi” is an enchanting emerald green with just a hint of shimmer for some holiday glam. You better stock up now because it seems that quality green nail polish comes and goes as quickly as the holidays.

Zoya Nail Lacquer is sold in professional nail salons and specialty beauty supply stores.

A favorite nail polish brand of celebs like Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Britney Spears. I love Vinyl and Angel, this is a great nail polish collection it has the perfect mix of colors!

Hard Candy Delinquent Mini Nail Kit

What it is:
A super cute set of Hard Candy’s Vintage Nail Polish in mini-bottles.

What it does:
We know you always loved Hard Candy’s Mini Nail Sets, so for them coming up with a new set was a no-brainer. Why commit to one Nail Polish when it so exciting to have seven?! Each Polish was carefully chosen by their team of experts—a perfect sampling of upcoming trends in nail color. The formula is Toluene, Formaldehyde, and DBP-free, with technologically advanced plasticizers to prevent chipping. Plus, each bottle is still garnished with a matching Hard Candy jelly ring!

What else you need to know:
If that wasn’t enough, they all come housed in a unique metallic case, finished in distressed hot pink leather (faux, of course). When your polish is done, reuse it as a makeup pouch to hold brushes, liners, and glosses. Any long time Hard Candy fan will squeal with delight to receive this nostalgic gift. Or, introduce new friends to Hard Candy-give a bottle or two your best friends!

Shades include: Trailer Trash (silver sparkle), Angel (gold sparkle), Earth (nude shimmer), Stop (red sparkle), Scam (hot pink shimmer), Vinyl (dark purple), Vibe (black sparkle).

You have to love, or at least laugh at the new Divorcee collection from Orly. My personal favorite from the new line is Pawn the ring.

Breaking up is hard to do… But you can look fabulous doing it with the ORLY Divorcee collection. This array of 6 fabulous cremes and shimmers ranges from pale baby pink to a scandalous black with a subtle red flip. (Have we mentioned that black is back again this season?) So go ahead newly singles, paint the town—and your nails—red! The Divorcée collection: 50/50, Pawn the Ring, It’s Not Me, It’s You, One Night Stand, See Yah and Take Him To The Cleaners.
