Anchor and Heart Lacquer December Trio Swatch and Review and Day 8 of 25 Days of Polish Giveaway

**Press Samples**

This month, Anchor & Heart Lacquer decided to do something different. Where she normally does her monthly fan favorites duos, she thought doing a trio would be fun for the holidays. Not only that, these were all inspired by pictures that fans submitted, AND they were named by fans. She loves to interact with the people in her FB fan group, and she really listens to their input. If you haven't tried Anchor & Heart Lacquer yet, you need to! She comes up with some beautiful colors and combinations. The December 2016 Trio was released yesterday, but I've got my review and swatches to show you all today. Not only that, but she decided to give you all the chance to win a set for yourself! 

Sugar Plum Sweetheart is described as "a dusty rose pink crelly featuring holo, matte, and metallic glitter in various shapes, sizes, and shades of pink, as well as a sprinkling of rose gold/pink micro flakes".
Shown is two coats of Sugar Plum Sweetheart with top coat.
Sugar Plum Sweetheart is a beautiful shade of pink. It will have you dreaming of spring for sure. Smooth application and formula, and you always get just the right amount of glitter onto the nail. It was fully opaque in two coats. This would make a beautiful base for some simple stamping.

Winter's Shimmer is described as "a pale blue polish that will lean grey or lavender depending on the lighting, with a strong copper shimmer, tiny gray micro flakes, and a scattering of glass flekcks that flash bright blue in the right light".
Shown is three coats of Winter's Shimmer with top coat.
Winter's Shimmer is going to knock your socks off! This combination of colors is unique and quite stunning. It took me three thin coats to reach full opacity. Be warned. You'll be playing with that shift, try not to get distracted while driving! Everyone needs this polish. No ifs, ands, or buts about it!

All That Glitters is Coal is described as "a black linear holo with silver flakes, silver holo flakes, and a touch of silver micro glitter".
Shown is two coats of All That Glitters is Coal with top coat.
All That Glitters is Coal is a luxurious black filled with that beautiful rainbow from the holo pigment. The silver flakes and glitter add just the right amount of something extra without going overboard. I did two thin coats, but you might be able to get away with one coat if you wanted to attempt it. I like the dry time of thinner coats, so I personally wouldn't recommend it. This would make a fantastic base for a New Years mani!

Black Friday LE 2016
Black Friday LE 2016 is described as "a muted blue-green crelly with pink, olive green, and gold metallic glitter, and a lovely soft pink shimmer throughout".
Shown is two coats of Black Friday LE 2016 with top coat.
Black Friday LE 2016 is such a fun combination of colors. The base is a great shade of teal, and using the contrasting pink shimmer was such a great idea. It only took two coats to reach full opacity. I love how sporadic the glitter ends up being. She has such a gentle hand when adding just the right amount of glitter to the polish. It is just enough to really accent the color without overwhelming it.

Black Friday LE 2016 was only available as a gift with purchase over her Black Friday sale. It isn't available to purchase. For those of you who missed out, make sure you don't miss out on any more of these! Trust me, you'll regret it!
