Bohemian Polish Adirondack Winter Collection Swatch and Review and Day 12 of 25 Days of Polish Giveaway

**Press Samples**
Happy Saturday, everyone!! I've got the gorgeous Adirondack Winter Collection from Bohemian Polish. For this collection, she found inspiration in stories her husband has told her about being from upstate New York. He shared fond memories of spending winter days and nights at Cranberry Lake. He’s told her stories of being stuck inside watching the snow fall, then later going snowmobiling around Cranberry Lake and marveling at the sparkling drifts. They have made their own trips to Lake Placid to see where the Miracle on Ice happened, they’ve gone wandering on and off trails underneath the boughs of pine, and they’ve sat by the lakeshore as twilight sets in. They’ve sat around the fire listening to the loons, even after the bonfire has faded to ash and gleaming embers. All of this is shown in the collection. Keep reading to find out for yourself.
**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**
Snowbound is described as "a sparkling white polish with slight holo and rainbow glitter".
Shown is three coats of Snowbound with top coat.
Snowbound dries matte and slightly textured. The color is fresh and captures the glistening snow perfectly!
$9

Cranberry is described as "a rich burgundy cream".
Shown is two coats of Cranberry with top coat.
Cranberry is actually a jelly, not a cream. It is the perfect burgundy color. Clean and simple, with that wonderful squishy look.
$9

A Cardinal in Winter is described as "red holo".
Shown is two coats of A Cardinal in Winter with top coat.
A Cardinal in Winter is bright and vibrant. It may be a jelly, but it is fully opaque in 2 coats. It's a perfect red holo.

Lake Placid Gold is described as "gold holo micro glitter".
Shown is three coats of Lake Placid Gold with top coat.
Lake Placid Gold is a refreshing glitter. I love that it is filled with the fine micro glitter. It's packed with glitter. I believe it would be opaque in two coats, but i did a third coat to be safe for the macro shots.

Boughs of Pine is described as "a forest green cream".
Shown is two coats of Boughs of Pine with top coat.
Boughs of Pine is another jelly, not a cream. I originally thought this beauty was black, until I opened it up and pulled the brush out. It was a pleasant surprise to see it was a green.
$9

Off the Trail is described as "a dark green holo".
Shown is two coats of Off the Trail with top coat.
Off the Trail is a-freaking-mazing! The shade of green is a great mix of olive and forest green. If you ask me...you need it!

Twilight is described as "a midnight blue holo with purple to blue shifting micro flakes".
Shown is two coats of Twilight with top coat.
Twilight is a stunning shade of blue, and the addition of the flakes elevates it and adds depth. This beauty almost glows.

After the Bonfire is described as "an ash grey cream with blue to gold shifting flakes".
Shown is three coats of After the Bonfire with top coat.
After the Bonfire is actually a crelly, not a full cream. It is the surprising one of the bunch. You know I love a grey, and this still wasn't the first one I was drawn to. Then I put it on and...BAM...holy flakie heaven. 
$9

These are gorgeous! If you've never bought from Bohemian Polish, know that her polish is on the thinner side. Don't try to do thick coats or your cuticles will need a floatation device. Not a bad thing, just make sure you use thin coats and all will be well. The Adirondack Collection is available now for $9 - $10 each. This collection is lovely and cohesive, and you can really the inspiration throughout. Be sure to follow her on all of her social media platforms (links below).

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
NOW, for the big news! How about a giveaway? How about 25 giveaways? Yes, I said 25. Let's think of it like an advent calendar of giveaways. We will have a different giveaway each day.

All the prizes (except the one I purchased) were generously donated by each brand, and will be sent to the winners by each maker. Let's have fun!
