Hi everyone! I'm so excited to show you all some gorgeous polishes from Pretty & Polished's holiday collection + an awesome polish from PJ's polishes! All these indie polishes coming out with their holiday collections are putting me into mood for Christmas lights, family time and snow!

XMas Wreath, Everybody Loves Penguin, Forever Young and Mannequin Hands

Forever Young is a clear base with white, pink, red and blue hearts with rainbow micro glitter. This polish was made by Phoenix, Chelsea's daughter for her own collection named PJ's Polish for Kids. Ah, so adorable!

I really like this polish! I had no issues getting the hearts out which was a pleasant surprise. This is such a fun polish! This is one coat over China Glaze For Audrey and Essie Bikini So Teeny. 

Everybody Loves Penguin is a creamy white base with small yellow hexes and black hexes of various sizes.

Unfortunately, I had some issues with this polish. I could barely get out some of the black hexes nonetheless the large black hexes that sat teasing me in the bottle. I think it was honestly just because it was in a mini bottle but it was still a bummer.  This is three coats and there's a tiny bit of VNL. One more coat or even layering this over a white base would easily solve that.

Mannequin Hands is a soft light skin color with light pink hexes.

First off, I LOVE this name! It describes this polish to a T. Granted, my hands are little darker (shocking because I'm pretty pale) than the polish, but I still love it. The pink hexes mixed in give it such a twist yet are still subtle. This is three coats.

XMas Wreath is a sheer shimmery green polish with red, green and gold holo hexes and green shards.

This one was my favorite! The green shards really give this polish the feel of a Christmas wreath on my nails. It's just Christmas perfection! This is three coats and is still a bit sheer. An easy fix would be a few more coats or layering this over black or a green. Love it!

Overall: Pretty & Polished holds a special place in my heart because Jawbreaker was one of my first ever indie polishes purchased! Basically, P&P was my gateway to my indie addiction. Thanks, Chelsea! ;) That being said, my favorites were Forever Young and XMas Wreath.
