These nail polishes are just so cute & the idea of Christmas scents is just lovely! They come in a set of 6 bottles, 7.4ml each. The design of the bottles is nothing too quirky & let’s be honest, they do feel a bit cheap (well, they are really cheap after all). Especially the lids on some of them are somehow dried out, so they are a bit tough to open – for the price it’s nothing I should really moan about though & overall they do look cute bundled up together on my dressing table. The formula is nothing too amazing either, if anything it’s a bit strange. I absolutely love that they are 100% opaque in one coat (I don’t think I’ve ever seen a nail polish so opaque & vivid to be fair) & they dry almost immediately. On the other hand, you need a really good base coat & top coat, because otherwise they almost ‘rub off’ when you touch your nails – really odd!
The main point though is that each of these little bottles has got (or maybe should have?) a specific festive scent to it when dried. I love the idea of having nails that smell like gingerbread or candy cane (although my boyfriend pointed out that sniffing your fingers for whatever reason is beyond gross – pffft!). I have to say though, I’m not sure about this whole scented factor. The wet nail polish has got a really strong strange scent to it & when it dries, it’s just… odd. It’s not unpleasant, I’d say it’s sort of sweet, but it definitely doesn’t remind me of gingerbread, snow or berry frost. It’s just sweet & inoffensive, nothing more.
I bought this set of 6 nail polishes for £4.99 in TKMaxx when I was out & about with Terri the other day. The fact that the bottles are a bit cheaply made & the scents are not actually matching the description is a bit disappointing, yet for the price – 80p per bottle of a seasonal nail polish with absolutely amazing opaque pigmentation in great festive colours makes it a bit less of a fail.
