Deck The Halls... I Heart NP Babes In Toyland

Today I am bringing you the next installment of the Holly Jolly Christmas challenge, today's prompt was 'Deck The Halls', I knew straight away I had the perfect polish for this. I just love being able to decorate the house at Christmas time, my favourite thing being of course the tree. I decided to try and replicate a decorated tree look through simply layering polishes together.


My base colour is two coats of Revlon Rain Forest, a dark green jelly polish full of yummy green glitter, to replace the Christmas tree. I then used one coat of I <3 NP's Babes in Toyland. This is a topcoat glitter made up of  pink, green, fuschia, blue and gold glitters. It reminds me of OPI Rainbow Connection but more thought out and precise.


Babes in Toyland is a very versatile polish, I have seen it layered over white, black and purple as well and each time it looks stunning. Over the dark (almost black) green polish the glitter really does pop! I love the fact the pink glitters are actually circular, they look like baubles and the blue aqua glitter are cute sqaures! I think it's great that a little bit more thought has been put into this polish. I wish my Christmas Tree could look this good.

I must do a quick mention of the packaging here, I have never received an 'indie' polish that arrived looking so professional.


Isn't the box just uber cute?



Also the lid has a rubber finish, which I love as it adds that extra bit of grip.


Application wise, this polish is great, there is no 'fishing' for glitter, I used the dabbing method here to create random coverage in one coat but you could easily build it up with a second coat. I purposely wanted the green 'tree' to be easily seen underneath.  Also this polish dries very smooth even without topcoat. I added one coat of Seche Vite just to get that trade-mark shine. 


I really love those pink circles! This really is a fun Christmas manicure, but this polish could easily be used over other colours that could be worn at any time. I can't wait to skittle this polish over some neons!

I have a couple more polishes to show you from I <3 NP later, in the mean time you should go look at the wonderful Barbra's Facebook page! You can purchase a 12ml bottle for $10 (did I mention they are also completely 3 Free?)  and you can purchase from her Etsy shop.

The inclusion of this graphic means that the product above was sent to me by review. All opinions are honest and all information is correct at the time of writing.



Here's a reminder of the Holiday Challenge:
