Nicole by OPI I Love You Cherry Much

I have a huge backlog of nail posts to edit and write, but I just couldn't resist letting Nicole by OPI I Love You Cherry Much jump the queue. I used it on a whim last weekend and was struck by what a gorgeous and perfectly holiday-appropriate polish it is.

This is a bright cherry red packed with flakies that provide sparkle and dimension. Because the sparkle factor comes from flakies and not glitter, it's a little different and special from most red holiday polishes. It positively glows. I kept looking at my nails and thinking, "yep, this is the polish Mrs. Claus probably rocks year-round" lol.

One drawback is that it is pretty sheer. I've swatched it here with four coats, and I still get a slightly visible nail line, plus you can see a hint of the blue staining from Zoya Liberty underneath. The formula is also slightly thinner than I'm used to, so it flooded my cuticles, which was sucky super fun to clean up. But with four coats, you get quite a build up of flakies, resulting in a pretty, almost-foil look. My family doesn't really celebrate Christmas, but something about this polish makes me want to decorate a Christmas tree or something!

How are your holidays going? What are you wearing on your tips right now?
