**Press Samples**

Well, Pretty & Polished has done it again! I've got the entire 12 piece Winter 2016 Collection to show you all today. Let me tell you, she didn't leave anything out. A little something for everyone...crellies, glitters, holo, toppers, jellies, and shimmers. Even better...they're all under $10!! Yeah, I know, good stuff! Everything Chelsea puts out is wonderful, but I love that this collection is a bit unconventional. Not the normal reds and greens you're used to seeing this time of year. She had a blast with these! Just keep reading to find out for yourself!!
I Need a Taupe-ical Vacation is described as "a soft taupe dusty creme".
Shown is two coats of I Need a Taupe-ical Vacation with top coat.
I Need a Taupe-ical Vacation is such a fun take on a neutral taupe polish. There are hints of grey and purple in it. Be prepared to fall in love with the gorgeous formula and application, as well as the color!
$4.25 (mini)/$7.50 (full)

I Busted My Glass is described as "a glitter topper packed with metallic and holo glitters in different shapes, sizes, and colors".
Shown is one coat of I Busted My Glass over I Need a Taupe-ical Vacation with top coat.
I Busted My Glass is breath of fresh air! The mixture of glitters, flakies, and colors is incredibly playful. No need to fish for glitter, pull the brush out and you're good to go! At least if you're using it as a topper. If you want to try to get this to full opacity I'd try the sponging method. That is definitely your best bet. It does apply well though. No issues whatsoever. Have some fun with it! This is wonderfully versatile.
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Obligatory Christmas Polish is described as "a white crelly polish packed with red and green metallic glitter, and gold holo micro glitter".
Shown is two coats of Obligatory Christmas Polish with top coat.
Obligatory Christmas Polish is a favorite of mine from this collection. It is a white base, but it comes off as an eggnog shade to me. Maybe it's because I've got eggnog on the mind lately. The gold, red, and green combine perfectly to give you the ultimate Christmas polish. Two coats gave me full opacity, and it wasn't streaky. You can thank all the glitter for that. 
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Rocks in My Snowballs is described as "a white crelly polish packed with white, black, and grey glitters".
Shown is three coats of Rocks in My Snowballs with top coat.
Rocks in My Snowballs is another fun white crelly! Although, because of the glitter in it, it does give off a more grey feel. This one is cram packed with glitter. It was slightly difficult to apply because of the glitter, BUT WHO CARES?! Look at how awesome it looks!! It makes me so happy! Reminds me of decorative concrete. I recommend three coats with this one, but if you can manage it in two then I commend you!
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Spike My Cider is described as "a light brown holo polish packed with brown holo glitter".
Shown is two coats of Spike My Cider with top coat.
Spike My Cider is a must have for all!! Two flawless coats will have you singing for joy! This is one you'll be using year round, so make sure you go ahead and buy a back up bottle. No need to even talk this one up. It speaks for itself.
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Shameless Sugarplum is described as "a light pink crelly with a soft gold and pink shimmer, and packed with blue, pink, and purple glitters".
Shown is two coats of Shameless Sugarplum with top coat.
Shameless Sugarplum is another must have crelly. The color is flirty, and the glitter makes it playful. Another year round beauty. This would make a fun base for some stamping. Whether it be nutcrackers, ballerinas, fun patterns or flowers. Application was fantastic! Crelly to glitter ratio was spot on!
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Throw Some Glitter On It! is described as "a glitter bomb packed with pink, purple, orange, blue, and copper glitter, and color shifting flakes".
Shown is one coat of Throw Some Glitter On It! over Brisky Business with top coat.
Throw Some Glitter On It! is another fun and versatile glitter polish. This one is a bit more dense than the other one and could more easily be made opaque. I love the colors in this one. The copper gives it a beautiful dimension. 
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Sleighing It!
Sleighing It! is described as "a red to orange multichrome polish with a linear holo effect".
Shown is two coats of Sleighing It! with top coat.
Sleighing It! is the most amazing holiday red. The red to orange multichrome will instantly put a smile on your face. It practically glows. The holo isn't incredibly visible in my pictures, but trust me, it is there! I'm going to need someone to try to stamp with this. Holy moly, is it stunning!
$5 (mini)/$9 (full)

Blue Balls is described as "a light blue crelly with round blue glitters in different sizes".
Shown is three coats of Blue Balls with top coat.
Blue Balls...yes...I dare you not to giggle. I'm having a hard time not giggling just typing this. Not streaky, just a little sheer. Three coats gives you the perfect amount of glitter and opacity. Those of you who have this polish, or are planning on getting it, and do amazing freehand nail art, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE use this and paint a Bubbles from Finding Nemo on it. It would be so good!
$4.50 (mini)/$8.50 (full)

Yule Thank Me Later is described as "a blue to green multichrome polish packed with golden shimmer and color shifting flakes".
Shown is two coats of Yule Thank Me Later with top coat.
Yule Thank Me Later for telling you about this polish and just how much you need it. I mean for real. Two smooth coats, flawless application, perfect use of flakes. I can't rave about this enough. Use this polish in some Christmas tree manis. It will be absolutely perfect! GET IT NAO!
$5 (mini)/$9 (full)

That's Just Plum Dandy is described as "a dark plum dusty creme".
Shown is two coats of That's Just Plum Dandy with top coat.
That's Just Plum Dandy is an enchanting shade of purple. It has the same amazing formula and application that all of their dusty cremes have. Honestly, you need every last one of them. I'm heartbroken that there are so many that I don't have. 
$4.25 (mini)/$7.50 (full)

Brisky Business is described as "a dark blue to purple multichrome polish with color shifting flakes".
Shown is two coats of Brisky Business with top coat.
Brisky Business is the mysterious beauty of the group. The shade of blue is amazing, and the purple shimmer will, in fact, smack you around a bit once it comes out to play. Then you add the flakes, and you have one perfect blue polish. The application is so good, I didn't even have to do clean up. Flawless!
$5 (mini)/$9 (full)
