Pixi Holiday Nail Colour Trio!

after yesterday's overview of the Pixi Holiday Kits, i wanted to bring you swatches of the Nail Colour Trio today! there are two glitters and one shimmer that can all be used alone or combined for different looks. it retails for $12, which is an amazing deal since one Pixi polish usually retails for $8!

i took another picture of the packaging, this time there is no reflection so you can more see the actual colors :) i just love the little bird!

first up is Gold Glimmer, a dense gold glitter with holographic silver pieces. the glitter is so dense that it is opaque enough to wear on its own in two coats! it also dries quite smooth, so i didn't even add a topcoat... but adding one would help out the longevity of your mani. since glitter polishes are made up of separate piece, it makes it easier for bits to chip off. Gold Glimmer makes your nails look like they are covered in gold gilt, and the holographic particles add extra visual interest. this is a perfect party polish!

two coats Gold Glimmer.

next up is the other glitter, Diamond Glimmer. this one is chock full of iridescent glitter pieces! i think it would be nearly impossible to get it fully opaque on its own; however, it make for a really elegant mani all by itself. for this swatch i used two coats, which was enough to obscure my natural nails, but not cover them. this would be stunning over french tips! it dries slightly dull, so you'll want to add a shine topcoat.

two coats Diamond Glimmer, one coat Seche Vite.

last up is the red shimmer Ruby Glitz. it has a cherry red almost jelly-like base with loads of brighter cherry shimmers... it looks like Dorothy's ruby slippers from Wizard of Oz!  i was really impressed with the opacity, it only took two coats for full opacity and had excellent coverage at one. it dries quite dull, so definitely add a shine topcoat to bring out all the beauty of this polish! a picture cannot do this one justice, you definitely want to see it in person :D

and here's what it looks like to combine the polishes! Diamond Glimmer definitely gives a more subtle effect than Gold Glimmer over Ruby Glitz.

one coat Gold Glimmer on pinky and middle, one coat Diamond Glimmer on ring and pointer, everything finished off with one coat of Seche Vite!

these beauties and other Pixi products can be found at Target stores and, and also! Pixi polishes are free of DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde :)

the other Pixi Holiday Kit swatches should be up tomorrow... if i can figure out how to get them photographed! these will be my first time swatching anything but nail polish, so i'm a bit nervous. i hope you've all had a great weekend! Ria :)

:: these polishes were sent to me for review, these are my honest opinions! ::
