TGIF! It's finally the end of the week, what are your plans? This weekend temperatures are going to drop even further in Jersey. It's mid-February and it's very much winter, unfortunately. For today, I have some beautiful polishes that hit close to home in this winter weather. The swatches I'll be showing are part of the Winter Collection by MTL Creations. Let's take a look.
The Winter Collection by MTL Creations is available for purchase individually for full and mini sizes. Each full size retails for $7.38 and each mini is only $2.95.
Deck the Halls
Deck the Halls is a white crelly filled with red glitters of different sizes. Surprisingly I didn't get to pick up a similar polish during the holidays, so I'm excited to be able to try it now. While it's meant for more of the holiday season, it's still a good combo for other occasions. The red isn't too vibrant so it ends up reminding me of speckled eggs for the Spring. Good formula and consistency, but it does require a few thin layers to order to even out. For these swatches, I used three thin coats and sealed it with a top coat.
Sugar Plum Gumdrop
Sugar Plum Gumdrop is a clear glitter topper filled with different shaped purple and holo glitters. This is not intended to be a full-coverage glitter, but I wanted to show you how it looks both ways. I used three thin coats over a clear base coat and then two thin coats over a white base. I definitely suggest using it over a base as opposed to building up alone. The formula is pretty good and does not clump up as you add each layer. Shown here with a glossy top coat to smooth down the glitters.
Frost Bite is a white crelly filled with blue glitters in different sizes. This beauty does the talking for itself and I'm completely in love. Definitely my recommendation for must-have. Great formula and consistency, like the previous one it requires a bit of layering for an opaque finish. The layers apply very smoothly and without any issues. Shown here is three thin coats and sealed with a glossy top coat.
Overall I really love both the crellys, especially because I'm a long time fan of white based crelly polishes. Frost Bite is my favorite and I recommend it hands down. Not all of us are going through the cold weather right now, but the polishes are actually versatile all year round.
As I mentioned before, the Winter Collection by MTL Creations is available for purchase individually in both full and mini size. There is also a listing for the full collection, which is a total of five polishes.
