Jindie Nails Santa Claws Collection - Part 1 (pic heavy)

I was feeling a little festive over the weekend and decided to swatch some Christmas polishes. I was lucky enough to recently acquire the entire Santa Claws collection from Jindie Nails. There are 9 polishes total in the set. I will show you 5 of them in this post! :)

First up we have Blue Blue X-mas. This one is a gorgeous royal blue linear holo. Keep in mind I didn't have the best sunlight for these pics. In the sunlight it shimmers like crazy!

This was VERY easy to was actually really covering with only one coat. I used two for the photos though.  Next we have Candy Cane. I have actually blogged this one before when I got a mini from Jen to swatch but the new bottle I got seemed to have a lot more of the large red hex. Which I love!  This is a white cream/jelly base with various sizes of red and green hex and with tiny red and green glitter. This is for sure one of my favorites of the collection.

So festive!! This polish was a little bit sheer when applying but 3 coats was fine for opaque coverage with no white base coat underneath. The only fishing I had to do was for the large red hex but a lot of glitter came out each time. Highly recommend this one!   The third one I have is called Holly. This one is a clear base with matte white, green and red hexes with tiny green sparkle glitter thrown in. I like the concept of the random large red hexes as the "berries". For these pics I layered 2 coats of Holly over 2 coats of Color Club Berry and Bright.

Once again, the amount of glitter on every swipe was more than adequate. I could have just used one coat of Holly, but I was trying to get the red berries out. Maybe next time I will do this one over white or grey to be able to see the red hexes better.  Next is Just Elfing Around. LOVE the way this one turned out. This one is so fun! There are both matte and holo glitters in this polish. I like the different shade of green hexes in this one. I layered it over Sinful Colors Mint Apple.

This polish was a little bit thicker than some of the others but once again....tons of glitter on the brush each time. With all of the colors in this one, I think it would look great over lots of different colors! Another of my faves!!!  And last.....we have Kiss Me Under the Mistletoe. This one is a really pretty shade of red. And I really don't even like red. LOL. This one is a jelly polish with red and green holo glitter throughout plus silver and gold hexes.

This one was also very easy to apply and these pictures were 3 coats. If you would like to go buy any of these polishes you can do so at Jen's etsy shop HERE. Also go check out her facebook page HERE and follow her on Instagram @jindienails.
