Serum No. 5 Holiday13 Collection

Disclosure

Apologies for the late post, but I wanted this to coincide with Serum No. 5's grand opening.  They have been on maintenance, but have reopened for the Luna New Year with full stock, which means Day Glow is there too.  This post is pic heavy so let's begin.  Friendly Tiffs is a reformulated prototype from the very beginnings of Serum, this is a mice baby blue creme with tiny blue specks.  Final Countdown is a Glow in the Dark black jelly with glitter accents in various colors.  For this one, I couldn't capture the glow on camera, but in real life, it must be charged in the sun, and it has a really unique purple glow.  Luxe So Good is a matte silver holo that is easy to apply.  Snow in Love is to me, the star of the collection, because it glows really nicely and it is an easy to apply white with blue glitters.  Gild Free is a beige with gold circle glitter and gold hexagons, the circle glitter is nice, but it gets lost in the base.  I like it as an "office" color.  Holly Dazed was more of a Christmasy combo with red and green glitters in a clear base, I had already swatched it here.  Girls Gotta Eat and Girl's BFF are repromotes (swatched here and here respectively), and they are actually one of my favorite Serum No. 5 colors, since they make great glitter toppers.
