Turtle Tootsie Polishes Elf Collection Swatch and Review and Day 3 of 25 Days of Polish Giveaway

**Press Samples**
It's day 3 of 25 Days of Polish Giveaway!! I've got the whole Elf Collection from Turtle Tootsie Polishes reviewed on the blog today, and you'll also get a giveaway from her!! Tis the season of Elf inspired collections. It's such a fun holiday movie, and I love seeing how everyone is inspired by it. This Elf Collection is a set of seven beautiful polishes. Some crellies, some jellies, some holo, some flakies, some glitter, but a whole lot of beauty. Ready to get a peek at this collection before it releases tomorrow?!


**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**
World's Best Cup of Coffee
World's Best Cup of Coffee is described as "a chocolate brown holo with brown and gold flakes".
Shown is two coats of World's Best Cup of Coffee with top coat.
World's Best Cup of Coffee is a beautiful color. It almost has a slight purple tinge to it. I love a good brown, but those of you who are borderline brown fans, this is the polish for you. First coat was a bit sheer, but a second coat will get you to full opacity. It's quite lovely!
$6 (mini)/$10 (full)

Passion Fruit Spray
Passion Fruit Spray is described as "a coral scattered holo with iridescent flakies".
Shown is two coats of Passion Fruit Spray with top coat.
Passion Fruit Spray is definitely not a conventional holiday polish. But who can deny a fantastic pink polish? No one. That's who. The color is vibrant and bright, but the holo is light and subtle. I don't know how it works, but they go together so well. I guess it is like the opposites attract sort of thing. Great application, almost a one coater, but would definitely do two to get the extra bit of sparkle.

The Yellow Ones Don't Stop
The Yellow Ones Don't Stop is described as "a mustard yellow with yellow-green holo micro glitter".
Shown is two coats of The Yellow Ones Don't Stop with top coat.
The Yellow Ones Don't Stop is such a fantastic shade of yellow. I don't know what it is about this color, but it just does something to me. When I saw it I thought it was going to be a three coater, but I didn't care because MUSTARD! After two coats, I couldn't have been more pleased. Great opacity, perfect amount of glitter. It definitely needs to be the base for some stamping or nail art.
$6 (mini)/$10 (full)

Buddy, the Elf
Buddy, the Elf is described as "a lime green scattered holo with green-gold flakies".
Shown is three coats of Buddy, the Elf with top coat.
Buddy, the Elf is a fun alternative to the normal pine and holly greens you see this time of year. It did apply a little streaky and thin, but after three coats you get an even finish and full opacity. This is a year round green for sure. I can't wait for it to snow so I can wear this together with Passion Fruit Spray. I love bright colors in the snow.

The Toilets are Ginormous!
The Toilets are Ginormous! is described as "a dark turquoise holo with gold shift".
Shown is three coats of The Toilets are Ginormous! with top coat.
The Toilets are Ginormous! is a stunning shade of teal. I don't know if the holo or the gold shimmer is the stand out aspect. They do work beautifully together. Smooth application, but a little thin. I did three coats to reach full opacity.

Smilings My Favorite
Smilings My Favorite is described as "a rose red holo with gold flakies".
Shown is two coats of Smilings My Favorite with top coat.
Smilings My Favorite was practically a one coater on my little nubs. I only did a second coat to get some more flakie goodness. The formula on this was incredible I was able to brush it over the nail flawlessly and didn't have to do any clean up. I love that the holo isn't too in your face. It would be a great polish to try to push the boundaries of a strict office nail polish policy. haha

Is There Sugar in Syrup?
Is There Sugar in Syrup? is described as "a blackened purple that shifts gold".
Shown is two coats of Is There Sugar in Syrup? with top coat.
Is There Sugar in Syrup? is my pick to be the fan favorite of this group. It's a crazy unique polish. Purple polish that looks brown in the bottle and black on the nail. Two buttery smooth coats will get you full opacity. Pictures don't do this polish justice.

Sugar Scrub is made using foaming bath whip so it is great in the shower.
Sugar Scrub ingredients are: foaming bath whip, sweet almond oil, kaolin clay, fragrance oil, and may contain either raw brown sugar, granulated sugar, or both.
Sugar Scrub comes in three scents right now: Pumpkin Spice, Spa, and Peppermint. But she will be adding five new scents on Sunday: Watermelon, blueberry, lavender, banana, and unscented.
I received the Spa scent. It is fresh and clean and reminds me of being in a spa. I love sugar scrubs for my hands and use them a couple times a week. I have a salt scrub I use on my face once a week and I love it. I haven't had one that is good for full body use though...until now. This is the perfect full body exfoliator. It leaves your skin soft and smooth.
$6$5 (while supplies last)

Christmas Bracelets
Christmas Bracelets is described as "a red and gold holo micro glitter".
Shown is three coats of Christmas Bracelets with top coat.
Christmas Bracelets is a fun and festive micro glitter. It is packed with glitter, but application is great.  If you're one who doesn't like multiple coats but would like full coverage, definitely do the sponging method with this one. One coat isn't overly concentrated, so it would make a beautiful topper as well.
$6 (mini)/$10 (full)
