Happy Friday, beauties!
Today I have the new 2012 Limited Edition Kardashian Kolors Holiday Collection. Here are some swatches!
First up, Kardashing Through the Snow. Cute name, eh? ;) It's a clear base packed with silver, gold, red, green, and sky blue glitters. This applied smoothly, but will require at least 4-5 coats for complete opacity. I would personally use this as a topper, since you all know I'm not a huge fan of 4-5 coaters. The image below was done in three, thin coats.
Next, A Gold Winter's Night. I'm loving the names! ;) It's a sheer, light gold base loaded with micro pink glitter, gold string glitter, and aqua holo glitters. I noticed that it's more dense when used as a topper(next couple of images) This was done in two coats and dried rather quickly.
All is Glam , All is Bright is a combination of silver, red, and light blue ultra fine glitters. This was the most dense of the three glitters only requiring one coat for opacity. Application was smooth and the formula was perfect! This was also my favorite from the three glitters .
Deck the Dolls is a vibrant, teal beauty. Another cute name! ;) To be honest, I wasn't expecting this shade in a Holiday collection, but I was pleasantly surprised! The first coat was a bit sheer, but evened out after a second coat. This is a must see in person to capture its true color.

Here We Kome A-Karoling is a vivid, deep eggplant that dries to a glossy finish. You all know that I'm a sucker for deep, vampy purples and this was no exception! With that said, this was my favorite from the three shimmers. This was perfect in two coats.

Lastly, Keeping Up With Santa. It's a luminous, cool toned red. When it comes to reds and pinks, I'm very picky, but I must say that Keeping Up With Santa has officially made it to my top three reds! I don't know what it is, but I couldn't stop staring at my nails! This was done in two, easy coats.

What's Holiday collection without green?! :(
Like most glitters, Kardashing Through the Snow and A Gold Winter's Night were a pain to remove. I recommend using the Elmer's Glue or foil method for ease of removal.
As always hope this helps & happy shopping!
Will you adding any of these to your stash? Thoughts?! I'd love to know down below!
