Holiday Snowman Nail Polish
Around the holidays each year you might spot these cute Snowman Nail Polishes at your local drugstore for an average of $2 to $3 a bottle. They’re only around for a couple months, and they’re totally adorable and make for great stocking stuffers.
The Snowman Nail Polishes are available in a fairly large selection of fun holiday colors and some really pretty glitters. Although I see these polishes every year, I’ve never used them. I know some nail polish junkies love these, so I picked up a couple bottles to give them a try.
The odd thing is that neither bottle is labeled with an actual name or color, so I couldn’t tell you the name of these, but I thought I’d share with you a couple of photos.
The pink polish is a raspberry pink filled with purple shimmer. It reminds me a lot of Essie Jamaica Me Crazy. The formula is really easy to work with. It’s thin, yet it’s not very sheer. I found that it dries very quickly and I don’t have to wait much time at all to apply my next coat. It’s opaque with two coats. It has a dull finish, so I applied two coats of a shiny top coat (Seche Vite).
The glitter polish is a festive combination of chunky silver, gold, blue, red, purple and green glitters. It’s sheer with one coat, but the glitters get distributed pretty evenly across the nail. It’s a really fun polish to top off your nails with.
The polish is a little more purple toned in person – it photographed rather red-toned on my nails.
I apologize for the weird lighting and my dry hands. I had to take these photos indoors and the lighting wasn’t cooperating.
I really like both polishes. The lasting power is average. I’m hard on my hands and I had chips in a couple of days. I’ve had the pink on my toes for a little over a week, and they’re holding up perfectly.
I purchased these from Jewel-Osco for $2.99 each. I haven’t popped in my Walgreens to see if they have them, but I’ve read that some people spotted them at their local Rite Aid.
