All the Way from Italy

My niece has been studying in Italy for the last few years. Every time she leaves I ask her to bring my back some Italian nail polish.
This time she finally remembered! I loved everything about Collistar! The bottle is cute, the color was great, the polish strong.
I'd definitely love to know more about this brand!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
I couldn't decide between all the Christmas polishes I pulled out what I wanted to wear, so I gave my basket of polish to my husband. He pulled out the China Glaze, "Party Hearty". I told him it needed something under it, so he pulled out the Nfu-Oh silver.
I think it turned out really nice!

Just the right amount of Christmassy for me! What colors did you pull out for the holidays?

I finally got my hands on one of these! I picked up Houses of Parliament at Sephora. I chose the purple over the grey because all the grey ones looked like they had already been opened and tried on.
This works great! The magnet is easy to use. There's a little guard so you don't accidentally bump your wet nails against the magnet. Drying time is fast! I tried painting one hand and then going over with the magnet and that did not work. I needed to polish a nail, use the magnet and then do the next one. Worth it though!

I definitely need more magnetic polishes! I hope they are going to become more available. And as they get more popular, I hope the price comes down a little $16.00 is steep (to me) but worth it for something so interesting that works really well!
