Pixi Color of the Month... God Jul!

i got up this morning, planning to head out to the barn around noon. checked the forecast and it called for flurries and a windchill in the 20s... decided to get groceries instead. that turned out to be the right call because instead of flurries it full on snowed! just to keep life exciting, somewhere along the way my mom's house key fell off her key ring (how does that happen?!) so we were locked out, in the snow! i eventually got Mr. Pawlish on the phone and he came and rescued us... what a guy :D

today i have Pixi's December 2014 Color of the Month to share with you all... God Jul! (it's a press sample, kindly provided to me for review). i had to use Google translate because i wasn't sure what God Jul meant... it's Merry Christmas in Norwegian, how cute is that?! God Jul! is red creme that has a somewhat squishy look to it... not even enough to call it a crelly, but there is a hint. it's a really interesting red that looks cherry in some lights, more coral in others, and sometimes it's more of a true red! the formula is good, two medium coats will give full opacity... you could probably do one thick coat, but i prefer to use a less loaded brush than usual with Pixi polishes. somehow i did really thin coats on my pinkie and ring fingers, so those actually have three coats... but they are the only ones on both hands that i painted differently! very strange. i recommend a glossy topcoat over this one, it's really brings it to its full potential and accentuates that slight squishiness.

two coats index and middle, three coats pinkie and middle fingers. finished off with one coat Salon Perfect Crystal Clear Top Coat. (both are press samples).

Pixi polishes retail for $8. you can find Pixi products at Target stores,, and!! God Jul! is a limited edition shade that will only be available at while supplies last... so make sure to order soon if it's something you're interested in it :) this is the direct link to the Pixi Beauty Nail Colour page!

next up... December's Pixi makeup blogger sample swatches... and they are good ones! Ria :)
