Swatch: Pretty & Polished–Xmas Wreath

Hello all! This is going to be a quick post as for some reason, December has now brought on a sudden onslaught of busyness! I feel almost overwhelmed which is not good! Thank goodness for the calming effects of nail polish…(fumes?) Today I bring to you another one of the Christmas releases from Pretty & Polished called Xmas Wreath!

Xmas Wreath is what I would describe as a light, forest green metallic sheer with silver, red hex and green “shards” of glitter. What I have on is two coats with easy application. The glitter came out very easily, so no fishing was required.

I hate to say this, but this is an incredibly unique holiday polish that I don’t really like…I didn’t find the green to be very flattering on me and I don’t know how I feel about the green shards of glitter. This polish was a lot of fun to wear and did get a few compliments while I was out and about so I’d say for the Christmas novelty of it, it’s definitely worth the buy!

Pretty & Polished now has a new store where you can find Xmas Wreath and other holiday polishes!

  1. It is a very festive polish but the green is very dull and I don't find that the sparkles really twinkle or stand out:(

    1. Exactly! I don't know if it's the base, but I just wanted to take this polish off...

  2. I looks kind of.. rough? I also feel like the green is more 'army/camo' than it is Christmas. It's still a neat looking polish though!

    1. I took it off the same day I applied it...this polish just wasn't for me. It's rough, the glitter shards weren't smooth at all.

    1. I would have liked it more if it were a forest green maybe?
      I think it must be the fumes too! Things just always feel better with nail polish!

    1. This green definitely doesn't work for me either! It's too bad though, this is probably the first P&P polish I don't like...

  6. I'll be the first to say it. :P I think it looks yucky. It looks like a wreath that has been pulled out of the attic every year since 1973. :P It looks dry and faded.
