The collection also includes a special, large-particle hologram glitter called I Snow You Love Me. I find that it's too sparse to apply directly from the bottle as a topcoat, but works very well as a jewel accent when you place the glitter on the nail with a toothpick or nail art brush:
You can do something quick and simple like this,
Or add more pieces for something a bit flashier. The clear polish base acts like glue so the pieces stay right where you put them. Just be sure to let the clear polish on the dots dry before adding topcoat or else they might slide around a bit.
The formula on all of these was perfect. Application was so uneventful that there's nothing I can really say other than that they all apply exactly how polish should. I did three coats of each polish (only the glitters and Ski Slope Sweetie actually needed three) and dry time was very fast.
My favorite of this collection is My Favorite Ornament, but I'm also really into Ski Slope Sweetie. It's a lot like China Glaze White Cap from a few years back. It's sheer enough at one coat to use as a color-transforming topcoat over various base colors (it adds gold, yellow and green iridescence and glass fleck shimmer), but I love how it looks all by itself at three coats.
This collection also includes six new shades of OPI Liquid Sand textured polish, which you can see swatched here.
