Anchor & Heart December Trio

***Press Sample***

Anchor & Heart has been a favorite indie of mine since she first opened, not only because she makes amazing polish, but also because she is an amazing person!  I'm always delighted when she asks me to swatch some of her polishes, so when she asked if I'd do her December Trio, it was a no-brainer to accept :D


Let's jump right in!!



First up: Sugar Plum Sweetheart





Sugar Plum Sweetheart is a lovely pink crelly with various glitters throughout and a subtle gold shimmer.  Opaque in 3 thin coats.

Next up: Winter's Shimmer





Check out that shimmaaaaaaaah!!!  Winter's Shimmer is a beautiful dusty pale blue with small black micro flakies throughout and a lovely orange/gold shimmer.  Opaque in 3 thin coats (my nail line is super strong, which is why you can still see it here).

And finally: All That Glitters is Coal





I just can't with this one.  All That Glitters is Coal is a gorgeous black jelly with gold flakies throughout and a holographic shimmer in direct sunlight.  Opaque in 2 coats - SUCH a stunner!!!

This lovely trio is available now for $10 each or a discounted $28 for all three!  You can find them here:

I hope you all are enjoying/enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday!  Who all is prepping their fingers for some online Black Friday shopping??

Ella Ann Cosmetics is releasing their four Octopus Party Nail Lacquer polishes for pre-order at 10:00pm EST and it will run till Sunday, November 27th at 10:00pm EST.  I've got the swatches of those pretties to share with you tonight!

Amulet is a beautiful gold microflakie and holo glitterbomb, opaque in 2-3 coats (I'm wearing 3).

Next up: Edge of Velveteen




Edge of Velveteen is a lovely berry plink holo, opaque in 2 coats.

Next up: On the Frocks




On the Frocks is a fun blue iridescent glitter topper, shown here in one coat over "You, Me, and Daiquiri" by OPNL and "Cynthia" by Zoya.

And finally we have: Stag Party




Stag Party is a very deep, dark chocolate brown holo, opaque in 2 coats.

These are all so gorgeous!!  Though On The Frocks takes my heart, as the glitters reflect in a way that reminds me of bio-luminescence in the waters of Puget Sound :)

You can get these HERE right now!!  Will you be snagging any of these pretties?
