We’re rounding out the last of the Winter 2021 collections, right before we dive deep into Spring collections! Crazy to think about, but it’s the TIME (after this post).
Anyways, today we’re looking at the final winter collection I have to swatch up! This is the ‘Dazzle’ collection for Zoya for Winter 2021. I grabbed this up in a bundle, with the 5 polish shades, as well as a Hot Lips – Zoya’s brand of lipgloss, and 5 wide brushes (really any bundle with wide brushes I snatch up, Zoya please make them the default already). This bundle is still available on the Zoya website now, and does save you a little bit of money if you’re looking to add on the wide brushes. Otherwise, each shade is available individually for $12.
This collection is 5 shades with a jelly base with tons of glitter and sparkle within. Most of the bases are opaque in 2-3 coats with one being more of a sheer look.
Does it not feel like winter or Christmas-time to any of you? Maybe it’s the 60 degree weather we’re about to get in December or the absolute LACK OF SNOW, absolutely unheard of here in Chicago. But I’m not feeling the true holiday mood.
And well if you’re looking for some untraditional holiday colors, well look no further! Today we’re looking at the Essie Winter collection for 2021. This features 6 shades as always, with 4 creams and 2 metallics. And we have some BRIGHT cream shades to look at, with a coral read, a peachy orange and a warm pink. Like I said, untraditional here, but if y’all want to wear orange in the winter, who am I to ever stop you.
I grabbed these from my local Ulta – I can no longer find them on my love Polishpick.com, as I believe they’ve changed up their distribution. Curse you Essie and making me pay full price. IT’S FINE. Anyways, why don’t we get on into the swatches, eh?
It’s time to look at MORE WINTER RELEASES, Y’ALL. More SPARKLE, more SHIMMER, more GLITTER, my FAVORITE THINGS.
Okay I’ll stop now.
Anyways, trying to get better at updating my blog more regularly. As I always say I post these polishes and swatches first on Instagram so I definitely recommend following there to see things! But I’ll always get the accompanying blog posts up so you can reference them whenever. Now let’s get the rest of these winter polishes reviews up shall we!
Today we’re looking at the China Glaze release. This is the ‘Jewels Royale’ collection for Winter 2021. They describe this collection as “Sparkle like a jewel. Lavish yourself with mesmerizing holiday hues that capture the brilliance of the most luxurious gems.” And I have to agree. We have a lot of rich jewel tones here and no end to the sparkle.
This is an 8 bottle release – I would say that’s becoming the norm for them, but the summer and fall collections were 6 polishes, so I know nothing. BUT what I do know is that I always buy China Glaze from my absolute favorite polishpick.com. Always the best prices on their polishes and incredibly fast shipping! I’ve talked about them 17 million times in other posts, so clearly I trust them and use them regularly.
We’re continuing right along with the holiday collections here, we’re DEEP into winter polishes now and there’s no going back.
Today we’re looking at the Orly release! This is the ‘Momentary Wonders’ collection and it features 6 super shimmery and sparkly shades. I got this with my Orly Color Pass which I’ve talked about a million times before. But if you’re new here, the Color Pass is a deal where you pay a full cost up front (or they recently added where you can pay for each box separately as well! Exciting!), and then throughout the year, the 4 seasonal Orly collections get shipper to you. Each box also always contains extra goodies as well – this box came with a nice sturdy hair clip and an extra polish!
Normally I always say these boxes are fantastic if you’re like me and looking to purchase all of the polishes anyways – it’s a great deal for that. But now especially that you can order one box at a time, that’s even better and you can try it out and see how you like it without the commitment!
Alright, that’s out of the way, let’s get into the swatches!
IT’S TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS! Well, at least nail polish. It’s time for holiday nail polish. I’m a person who doesn’t allow full Christmas until December 1st, but you know, the nail polish world doesn’t wait.
But that’s right, we’re diving into our first holiday collections here on the blog! We have a lot of glitter and sparkle and shimmer on the way. And as always, we have to start out with my love, OPI. This is the ‘Celebration’ Collection for Winter 2021. It features 12 shades in a “core” release, and then 3 glitter toppers, so 15 polishes total. That’s right we have 15 polishes to talk about today, so I’ll keep it short up here.
As always, I purchased this whole lot from my favorite place, polishpick.com. You know the drill, they have the best prices for OPI and always super fast shipping. Definitely check them out, and put my name in to let them know I sent you!
In this release, we have 5 creams, 1 pearl, and 6 scattered holographic shades. I know everyone has been so excited for those holographics, so let’s dive right in.
