A "Spellbound"-ing Christmas Giveaway!!

Hello, dolls!

I have a very special post for you today.  One of my all time fave indie brands is hosting a giveaway and I was invited to be one of the bloggers participating :D (*disclaimer)...

Ashley, of Spellbound Nails,  has put together a lovely Christmas collection based on the poem 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.  Here's what Ashley has to say about this collection...

 "I think this poem is one of the most well know things about Christmas. Children learn the basics of it at an early age and it sticks with them into their adult lives. Do you not immediately, upon hearing 'twas the night before Christmas, finish the line?? I thought it was the perfect inspiration for a holiday collection. And how could I create a Christmas collection without giving a slight nod to the Twelve Days of Christmas? I did this by having 12 polishes in this collection."

I have 3 of them to share with you today :)

Not Even A Mouse

This polish "is a white crelly with red and green hex glitter and red mickey mouse shaped glitter. Inspired by 'Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse'."  I applied 1 thin coat over a white base and loved it!  I did have to fish for the Mickey's to get them on the brush, but that's pretty typical with large/chunky glitters.  My plan is to wear this polish to Disneyland when I go.  Maybe next week-ish?

 Happy Christmas To All

This beauty is "an evergreen jelly base filled with red, green, and gold dots that act as both lights and ornaments, silver holographic micro-slices for tinsel, and for the top of the tree beautiful gold holographic stars. Inspired by 'But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, "HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL ..."  I was surprised by how much I loved this polish!!  All of the pieces picked up rather well and the tinsel was an awesome touch.  This is one thin coat over a hunter green base.

 Ashes & Soot

Last but not least is the polish i saw and had to have a big bottle of!  I feel like I love Ashley's black jelly/crelly/glittery polishes more than is normal lol.  They're so stinkin gorgeous!!!   This stunner "is a black jelly polish with tons of navy and purple holographic glitter and a really lovely rainbow shimmer. Inspired by 'And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot'."  Gah!!!  I'm in love <3  This is 1 coat over a black base.

(If you've made it this far I commend you!  Hahaha onto the giveaway we go :D)

Ashley has graciously decided to giveaway 6 mini's from her Christmas collection.  Swatches were also done by my fellow bloggers Varnished Reputation, Painted Nubbs, Over the Top Coat and Possibly Polished so be sure to take a gander!

May the Christmas Elves be in your favor!

Until next time!
