Hey, Swatch It! OPI Red Fingers & Mistletoes

Hey y'all!

Happy Saturday!  Since the currently-running "12 Days of Christmas" challenge is running all month and falls every other day, this will be December's only Swatch It, which I had to post because it's so seasonally appropriate.  I thought I'd show you a pretty little polish that I picked up from the Gwen Stephani Holiday 2014 collection, which called to me from the bottle with its fire-y orange shimmer - I just couldn't walk away!  While most of the collection was easy to overlook in the store, Red Fingers & Mistletoes definitely wouldn't let me!

Swatch and review of OPI Red Fingers & Mistletoes.

Application was pretty standard for an OPI - in other words, pretty easy.  Shown here is 2 coats with SV, although I think 3 coats would really help it, because I can see some thin spots in these pics that I didn't notice on the nail.

I've included this bottle shot so you can understand why I had to pick it up.  It's also worth noting that this shimmer must be super heavy, because it sinks to the bottom really quickly.  I had to give mine a good shake to get it remixed properly.

Since I didn't get as many pics as normal on this polish (because for some reason it didn't want to focus!), I went back to get some macros.  I managed to get one decent macro shot, so here it is.

Did you pick up anything from this collection?  Are you planning to?  Let me know down in the comments.

As always, have a great weekend, and I'll see ya Monday!
