OPI ~ Sending you Holiday Hugs

OPI ~ Sending you Holiday Hugs
Dark red shimmer

“Sending you Holiday Hugs” is is from OPI’s holiday collection 2017; “XOXO”.

I used two coats for full opacity and the drying time was good. It’s a really nice red, I like it a lot.

I wore it with glitter on top. I was rummaging through my box of shame recently and found this gorgeous looking holo glitter topcoat from Sally Hansen called “Wink”. I wondered why the heck that ended up in the box of shame and decided to rescue it and wear it today. I applied one coat of the holo glitter over the red, and now I know why the glitter ended up in the box of shame: It’s not easy to apply evenly! O_o

So here’s two coats of “Sending you Holiday Hugs” and one coat of “Wink” on top of it. There’s also a layer of ordinary topcoat to seal it all up.

This is “Sending you Holiday Hugs” on its own. Two coats and no topcoat yet.
