Starlight Polish Spruce
Spruce is described as a blue-toned green holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two coats. Spruce is named for blue spruce trees, with their beautiful blue-tinged needles.
Holly Berry is described as a warm true red holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two coats. Holly Berry is named for the bright red berries of the holly plant. The berries ripen in winter and stand out vividly red against the dark green leaves, especially in the snow.
This is 2 coats with glossy top coat.
From the maker ~ Poinsettia is a cooler, more pink-toned red than Holly Berry, which is more of a true red. In real life, the two polishes are very close in color, but I wanted to include two different reds so people who prefer warmer reds and people who prefer cooler reds both have a shade in this collection that will work for them. It’s easiest to tell the difference between the two in slightly dimmer indirect light, because the holographic effect obscures much of the subtle difference in shade.
Starlight Polish Smoke and Ashes
Smoke and Ashes is described as a shimmering charcoal holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two to three coats. Smoke and Ashes is named for the smoke from winter fires, and the ashes that remain once the fire has burnt out and the embers have cooled.
For my swatches I did 3 coats with glossy top coat, although 2 would have been enough.
Golden Rings is described as a shimmering gold holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two to three coats. The holographic effect in this polish is dispersed, and has the weakest holographic effect of the polishes in the Winter Holodays collection. It has a very diffuse linear holographic effect. In dim light where normal holographic polishes wouldn’t show the holographic effect, Golden Rings is still a lovely shimmery gold. Golden Rings is named for a few things – golden holiday decorations, the five golden rings from the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, and a tendency for people to propose during the winter holidays!
This is 2 coats with glossy top coat.
Golden Rings is more of a gold than yellow and the holo is not as strong. Candle Lights is a classic yellow with strong holo.
Winter Skies is described as a rich blue holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two coats. Winter Skies is named for winter skies at twilight, the deep blue that lasts for so long during winter evenings and tints the world blue.
This is 2 coats with glossy top coat. I didn’t have any staining, but I always recommend a good base coat regardless!
Starlight Polish Fireside Glow
Fireside Glow is described as an orange holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two to three coats. Fireside Glow is named for the orange glow of a lit fire, flickering and casting light over anyone and anything near.
This was slightly more sheer so I used 3 coats for these swatches. Sealed with glossy top coat.
Starlight Polish Sparkling Bows
Sparkling Bows is described as a fuchsia holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two coats. Sparkling Bows is named for the brightly colored, sparkling, holographic bows that are put on presents during the winter season!
This is 2 coats with glossy top coat. Ignore that bubble on my middle finger, my top coat was not cooperating.
Starlight Polish Candle Lights
Candle Lights is described as a yellow holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two to three coats. Candle Lights is named for dancing candle flames, lit against the dark of long winter nights.
This is probably the most sheer out of the bunch, I used 3 coats for these swatches. I do still have some VNL (visible nail line) but that’s mostly due to my crazy opaque free edge.
Starlight Polish Longest Night
Longest Night is described as a black holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two coats. To make this a black holo polish (instead of a grey), the opacity of the black is such that it does impede the holographic effect to a degree. This is still a linear holographic polish, but it isn’t as strong as the majority of the Winter Holodays collection. Longest Night is named for the winter solstice, the longest night of the year.
My swatches are 2 coats with glossy top coat.
Starbright is described as the amped up version of Starlight! Starbright can be used as a holographic top coat, and can also be worn alone at approximately three coats. Holographic top coats tend to silver out and holo over the colors they are layered over, and Starbright is definitely all about the holo! As this does have such a strong holographic effect, it does tend to drown out the color it’s placed over, leaving only a suggestion of the original color.
The holo on this was so incredible that I really just wanted to wear it alone, which I did – for 3 days. I only took it off because I had to finish swatching. This is 3 coats with glossy top coat.
Silver Bells is described as a sparkling silver holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two to three coats. The sparkling silver does slightly decrease the holographic effect. This is still a linear holographic polish, but it isn’t as strong as the majority of the Winter Holodays collection. In dim light where normal holographic polishes wouldn’t show the holographic effect, Silver Bells is still a lovely gleaming silver. Silver Bells is named for silver holiday decorations and jingle bells!
This is 2 coats with glossy top coat.
Poinsettia is described as a cool pink-toned red holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two coats. Poinsettia is named for, of course, poinsettias!
Check out that pink flame! This is 2 coats with glossy top coat.
Evergreen is described as a vivid green holographic polish. It is opaque in approximately two coats. Evergreen is named for evergreen plants, which are plants that maintain green leaves throughout the year. In the US, the most widely recognized examples are various conifer trees like pine, spruce, and fir, as well as things like juniper and holly.
Again always use a base coat, just in case! I used 2 coats with glossy top coat.
Starlight Polish Make it Sparkle
Make it Sparkle is described as a scattered holographic flake top coat, meant for layering over other polishes. This top coat was originally limited edition, but is now a permanent part of the Starlight Polish line!
I love love love this topper. And I rarely use toppers, but I want to put this over All. The. Polish.
If you haven’t seen my previous posts about Starlight Polish here is what you need to know: I adore her holos, there is no shortage of holo and you’ll always see that beloved rainbow sparkle bright in the light. The formula is honestly top notch. I would rank it up there among the best. Super smooth with just the right viscosity, never too thin or too thick. They apply like a dream and I almost never need any clean up afterwards. You simply won’t regret anything about them. I totally love every polish I have of hers. I always try to give you my true and honest opinion, so when I say these are exceptional I really mean it.
The Starlight Polish Winter Holodays Collection is available now, so no waiting! They retail for $12.50 each for the 15ml full size and $5.75 for the 5ml minis; with the exception of Starbright and Make it Sparkle which are $11.50 for full size and $5.25 for 5ml minis.
