Polish Me Silly - Winter 2014 Collection + Keychain: Swatches, Review & Nail Art

Press Sample

Hello, all! Today I have a selection of polishes from the forthcoming Polish Me Silly winter releases! Today, November 20th (at 5pm PST), Polish Me Silly will be releasing 10 new holographic polishes, 8 flakies, 4 multichromes, 4 Christmas polishes, and a leopard spot glitter polish! In addition to these lovely new shades, they also have a series of fun new key chains that every polish lover will appreciate ;)

I have 4 of the 27 shades to be released tonight to share with you so I'll start with 2 from the Christmas collection, then one of the holos, and finally that leopard spot glitter!

Claus I Love U is a white based crelly with red, black and white glitters ranging from small to large hex, circle and bar glitter. This one is inspired by the big jolly guy himself, Santa Claus, so I love how the mix of these glitters really create some imagery of the classic holiday gift bearer (can't you just see the belt, and buttons and red suit??) :) The formula on this one is nice, and I really didn't have to fish to get the larger glitters which is always appreciated. Shown is 2-3 coats with top coat.

X-mas Me Silly is a slightly green based glitter topper PACKED with green and gold micro glitters, multi-colored hex glitters and large star and circle glitters. I wasn't convinced by this polish in the bottle...but I loved it on the nail! I've shown one coat over Polish My Life's Money Tree and I'm in love with the fact that I had instant Christmas trees on my nails! There was also minimal fishing for those large stars which makes this girl happy!

Teal Me the Truth is a bright turquoise holo that, due to the nature of the holo, shifts in the light to show some lovely golden green tones. It's very pretty! The formula on this was easy to work with, though I did experience some brush strokes in the polish on some nails. Shown is 3 thin coats and top coat.

And just because, I did a little bit of free-handed winter-y nail art over this. I forgot how much I love painting snowflakes!

Last, but not least, Can U Spot Me? is Polish Me Silly's leopard spot glitter polish! I'll be honest, I was skeptical about this to begin with...but once I had it on the nail I really liked it! This has the signature PMS neon, semi-transparent hex glitters with a few of the leopard spots and it's much more tasteful and wearable than I was expecting. Really like their take on the leopard spot trend. Shown is 1 coat with fishing for the leopard spots over Polish My Life's Nude Lace.

Not to be forgotten are the I <3 Polish Keychains, which are a recent addition to the Polish Me Silly line and they are adorable! They are handmade large dog tags that come in various designs and color combos and I plan on putting this baby on my keys, stat! They come with a 9" chain that can be cut down in length and these would be perfect for hanging on your review mirror or your keys.

Overall, I'm really liking these polishes! The Christmas ones are very obviously seasonal, though I could see Claus I Love U working nicely for Valentines day. The other two are wearable year round which I love and all of them had an easy enough formula to work with (though there was some fishing).

You can purchases these shades starting this evening (5pm PST) from the Polish Me Silly etsy shop for $9.50/bottle. The cute tags are available now. Be sure to follow Polish Me Silly on your favorite social media site to stay up to date with the latest collections and promotions!
