If you're not familiar with the concept, the Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. As I mentioned before, the theme that was voted for December is Holiday's Around the World. This month Carrie found her inspiration in this photo of the Northern Lights as viewed from Finnish Lapland.

A Lapland Christmas can be described as a greyed navy holo (mix of linear and scattered) with color-shifting shimmer (shifting from green to pink/red). Another favorite of mine this month, the shade is the perfect combination of vamp and shimmer. Photos don't do the color shift any justice, it's much more vibrant under direct lighting. Not to mention, the tone of the shade meshes so perfectly against any skin-complexion. Needless to say, it's a must-have!

The formula has a really nice opaque application, though not enough to be a one coater. Consistency is well balanced, not too thick or too thin. It's very smooth throughout and easy to work with. It dries down to a high-shine finish on its own. I experienced no staining to my cuticles or nail beds during removal. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
