Gothic Gala Lacquers Holiday Collection!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am really hoping that you all had a fantastic holiday, and now that all of the hard work and overeating is finished this evening would not be complete without some new indies to swatch and show you.  Of course, I am thankful for my daughter Gia, my husband, family, friends, the roof over my head, my health and all of that good stuff but I am also thankful for some good polish and how can I end the night without giving myself a manicure?!  My nails have taken such a beating in the last few days with all of the cooking, cleaning, scrubbing, stuffing, you know all that fun holiday prep work (can you feel the sarcasm?) so I have trimmed them down to nubs, and have an awesome collection tonight so lets get started.

I was introduced to Gothic Gala Lacquers recently, many of you already know from my last post which was a custom made by the lovely creator Samantha, and tonight I want to show you her holiday collection which will blow you away.  It is a collection of five new stunners and a new top coat that will smooth over any glitter polish that you may have a problem with.

The first of the beauties I bring to you tonight is Winter Wonderland, a beautiful opalescent white polish that has an incredible shimmer to it when the light hits it.  This is such a pretty winter white polish and goes on so smoothly! The formula is amazing and I achieved full coverage in only two coats, opalescent polish will leave brush marks so just make sure to use a steady hand when applying but I promise the little bit of extra work is well worth it.

This holiday collection also includes a lovely blue jelly, glitter polish called Blue Christmas which will be on your ISO list for sure.  This is the perfect jelly sandwich, you have a mix of medium sized white and gold hex glitter along with micro silver and gold glitter throughout this amazing bright blue jelly base.  The glitter was a dream to work with, I didn't have to fish or worry about placement at all and only two coats did the trick and left me with a perfect sandwiched manicure.  I topped this mani with Gothic Gala Lacquers Smooth Me Over and my nails looked almost like stained glass windows, this is a great glitter smoother without the fumes or sticky mess.

This collection has it all and next up is an amazing glitter topper that will go with just about any polish you want to put underneath.  Snowfall is a clear based topper with micro and small sized hex glitter in silver, gold and peachy pink.  The application was a breeze, I didn't have to worry about pulling or glitter placement here at all and this will look incredible on top of almost an color.

This polish was one of my fav's out of the collection, Auld Lang Syne is another beautiful topper consisting of black and silver glitter, scattered holo, and OH MY is it lovely!  It is jam packed with glitter, but not to the point that it is too thick to apply, the glitter brushes on so evenly that I only had to apply one coat of this stunner.  Any shade will look great as an undie with Auld Lang Syne and I know that I will be wearing it year round.

Of course, I saved my favorite Gothic Gala Lacquer for last, It's Raining Glitter is the ultimate girly-girl topper.  This polish is packed with three different sized dots, diamonds and hexes in pink fuchsia, silver, purple and green, it also has a scattered holo and is pretty much everything that I love about polish packed into one bottle.  The application, again was dreamy, I had so much fun placing these pretty glitters on to my tiny nubs.  I cannot wait until I have some more growth so I can play with it again.

All of these were topped with Smooth Me Over and it did just that, the finish was perfectly smooth without feeling any ridges on my nails.  Gothic Gala is a beautiful polish that is very feminine and fun at the same time.  The creator also makes customs, like I showed in my last post, and is having an amazing Black Friday sale!  If you visit the Gothic Gala Etsy shop and use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY you will receive 30% off of your entire order OR you can use code FREESHIPPINGBF for free shipping on orders of $20 or more.  As if that isn't good enough any order over $16, after discounts and before shipping, will receive a free bottle of the LE Shop Teal You Drop which cannot be purchased.  These are some amazing Black Friday sales and you're not going to want to miss them!  You can check out the Gothic Gala Lacquers Facebook fan page to keep up with news, releases and upcoming promotions.
Thanksgiving is a special holiday to me because you don't have to worry about gifts, trying to
top someone and means that Christmas and the end of the year are approaching.  It is also a time to have your family and loved ones close to you, enjoy good food, good company and reflect on what you are most thankful for and what matters in your life.  With that said, I would like to say how thankful I am for you, yes YOU, the reader, the person who takes a minute to click that "subscribe" button or the link to my page and comes to visit.  This is a somewhat new blog, only a few months old, and every single one of you who click in means so very much to me so... THANK YOU!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and I'll be back soon with something exciting!
