Jindie Nails Just Elfing Around, Mrs. Claws and Silent Night Reviews & Swatches

There should be no doubt, that I love Jindie Nails polish! For a week or so, her polishes took over my blog! :P I'm super excited to share with everyone her new "Santa Claws" collection. Normally, I would make each polish it's own post but, I wanted to get them up quickly so everyone could see them and run over to her etsy store and buy them for the upcoming season! Have no fear though, I will be splitting the collection into 3 posts, there is only so much swatching and acetone I can take in one day!

Jindie Nails Just Elfing is pastel green, white and cherry red hex glitter mixed with silver and lime holo hexes all in a clear base. 1 coat of Just Elfing around was used over 2 coats of Orly Glitz. No base or top coat was used.
This polish is a ton of fun! It dried quickly and even with no top, only had a slight "gritty" feeling. I didn't need to "fish" for any glitters and love that I got all this with just one coat! Anyone else see Pac-Man on my index finger? :P
Mrs. Claws is described as a berry pink linear holographic. All nails are 3 thin coats of Mrs. Claws with no base or top coat.
The formula of this was great! It dried very quickly, was the perfect consistency and was shiny without a top coat. A top can be applied to this polish without dulling the holographic though! The color is a beautiful berry color that makes it perfect for the holidays, or really any time of the year. :P
Silent Night is a dark blue jelly base that has a purple/pink shimmer with various silver and blue glitters and silver holographic moons and stars. I used 2 coats of Silent Night with a top coat of Seche Vite and no base coat.
Formula of Silent Night was thick and Jen, the creator of Jindie Nails, does note this is normal for this polish. I recommend if you haven't tried a lot of thicker jelly based polishes to practice on a nail wheel first to get better at it before applying it your nails. After a good shake of the bottle, I was able to get a few stars and moons out, again Jen notes the larger glitters maybe harder to get out. Since the formula was thicker dry time was longer than average, a coat of Seche Vite helped the dry time along quickly though. The color is a lot of fun and "squishy" because of the jelly base. :P
