NailNation Peppermint Swizzle Stix is a complex pinky polish

I really like complex colors like this one.  It has holographic dust, some gold shimmer, and beautiful small pink/reddish glitters.  It's a really nice take on the shimmery reds that are traditional to this time of the year.

NailNation has had some really good sales lately, and I was stocking up on them, as I love this brand.  On the week that this arrive, I also got some Peppermint stencils as a gift with my Painted Polish order (from yesterday's post), and I thought they would make a perfect pair.  I've been running around lately, and have very little time for nail art, so accent nails are a life saver, and I can see myself getting into stencils like these, they work really well.

As a side note, Seche Vite really does "kill holos", or at least some of them.  I thought that my Fnug Psychedelicwas blinding even with topcoat, but the holographic effect completely disappeared on this one.  I've used Seche Vite before, on other types of holographics, but it didn't dull them this bad.  Oh well.

Happy Holidays!
