Jindie Nails Holly, Noel and Santa Claws Reviews & Swatches

I swear I'm not trying to go back to late posting! Time got away from me today and before I really realized it, it was already the next day! :P I still have 3 more polishes from Jindie Nails' Santa Claws collection to share with everyone and then tomorrow, well today, will take a small break from posting daily to relax. ;)

Jindie Nails Holly has a clear base with matte white, green and red glitter and green sparkle. I used 2 coats of Holly over 2 coats of Tip Top Nails Jitterbug Lime (post here) and no top or base coat.
The formula of Holly was perfect! It dried quickly and even without a top coat only had a very small "bumpy" feel to it. I did have fish around for the matte red glitter, but the polish is supposed to resemble a holly plant and only have a limited amount of red. I love the color and it does remind me of a holly plant, so it's perfect for the holidays!
Noel is neon green, white and red matte glitters and green sparkles densely packed in clear base. All fingers are 2 coats of Noel with no base coat and top coat of Seche Vite.
Similar to most matte glitter polishes, it was a little thick but no trouble to work with at all. If you are used to using other polishes composed of matter glitters, think Floam or BeTrixed, the formula is the same. Noel dried quickly and I didn't need to "fish" for any glitter, in fact I to try not to get so much glitter on the brush a few times! :P Again with most matte glitter polishes, it will need a top coat to help smooth out the surface. The color is really unique, I love the added sparkle it added to it!
Santa Claws is described as a matte white, black, red and green square glitters in clear base. The polish was created to resembled Santa's outfit with black squares representing his belt buckle, how cute! I started with 2 coats of Tip Top Nails Bright spark and added 3 coats of Santa Claws. I used no top or base coat.
Again, another great formula! I only used 3 coats of Santa Claws to pack my nails with glitter, 1 or 2 coats would have sufficed otherwise. ;) Like Holly, there was small "bumpy" feel with no top coat but it's wasn't anything I felt need to be smoothed out with top coat. It dried quickly and as you can tell, no "fishing" for glitter was required. The color is great and I love that Jenn, the creator of Jindie Nails, used the colors of Santa's suit for inspiration! 

You can find all 3 of these great polishes on Jindie Nails' etsy store here. Make sure to like Jindie Nails on Facebook here and find her on Instagram here.
