In the package I received from Indie Polish there was a little party in a bottle waiting for me. Named Santa’s Disco Suit, this was the one holo I received. A pinkish-red, it really does remind me of what Santa might wear for a night out on the town… New Year’s Eve outfit, anyone?

This month’s Ipsy bag theme was ‘Girl Meets Glitter’ so I was expecting to receive Holiday party themed items in my bag… Did Ipsy deliver on the theme this month? Come along to see what I got!
I’m slowly working my way through the Indie Polish package, and today I have another one to share. This is a pink polish with a mix of shimmers and glitters throughout. Called Sugar Plums, it’s a fun festive polish without being too ‘traditional’ in the colours and glitter mixes.

Continuing with the Indie Polish swatches… here’s another glitter topper with a name that cracks me up. Hipster Please is a mix of yellow, white, and grey microdot glitter. It can be layered to achieve a more full coverage look but I like wearing it over a base and letting my nails look really speckled.

Yesterday, I shared with you my first Indie Polish – a gold, glitter topper that’s perfectly festive for the holiday season. Today, I have Sandals in the Snow, which I think is the perfect name for it! This polish is bright and cheery with a mix of neon glitters throughout that make your nails feel rather out of season at this time of year. That’s why I love it! Don’t get me wrong, I love my glittery, vampy nails this time of year… but sometimes even our nails need a vacation!
Can you guess which one it is?
I haven’t tried Indie Polish before, but I know some people who are huge fans and always urged me to grab a few. Unfortunately, the polish budget isn’t an endless one (as much as I keep wishing), so even though Indie Polish was on my radar… it wasn’t on my nails. Until now!
Tanya (the maker behind Indie Polish) sent me a package with some of her new polishes to test out, so I’m lucky enough to share these with you today! When the package arrived, I was wearing a red polish (X ♥ Rouge) so I immediately reached for the gold glitter topcoat.
My wishlist this week is short! Does that mean I’m getting better at whittling my list down… or I’ve just been buying too much. Let’s not discuss any further.
This week, I’m after some good skin care. My real life as a teacher means yard duty in the frigid school yard, and it’s horrible for my skin! My normally oily skin doesn’t know how to react to the drying winds and it’s freaking out! Since I’ve tried (and loved) Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask before so now I’m thinking an awesome moisturizer from Boscia would be just what I need. Enter Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel!
Sephora says “This hydrating gel refines skin texture and brightens and clarifies the complexion while minimizing the look of pores, both instantly and over time.” Clarified complexion and minimized pores? Yes, yes, and yes. Sign me up!
