OPI Holiday Wishes 2009: Shim-Merry Chic, Holiday Glow and Sapphire in the Snow

 OPI brought out a great holiday collection in 2009, and I'm so sad I missed out since I wasn't into collecting nail polish at that time. I have only been able to acquire three of them so far, but I'm glad to at least have these in my collection. I found Shim-Merry Chic and Holiday Glow at aveyou.com for 8.50 each, but I have no idea if they are still available there. I think Sapphire in the Snow was 7.00, but I found it on a blog sale.

Shim-Merry Chic has flakes and holographic glitter in a light brown base. It's a bit similar to Sephora-212, but this is lighter and the holographic glitter is smaller. I used three coats to get full coverage.


Holiday Glow seriously glows with all the gold microglitter it has. The base is a shimmery almost chocolate brown color. I really, really loved this one. I used three coats with a coat of topcoat to bring out the glitter.


Sapphire in the Snow is almost as multi-faceted as a gem can be. Sometimes you see this color and it's a dusty navy blue and other times it comes off as a dusty dark purple. I have heard this is similar to OPI Roadhouse Blues, but I haven't compared them. I used two coats on the swatches below.


 There a few more polishes I want from this collection, but I doubt I'll ever find them as cheap as I found these three. Merry Midnight alone goes for over $20 on blogsales. Oh well, like I said I am happy to at least have these in my collection. ^_^

  2. Gosh I know.. I kick myself ALL the times for skipping out on tons of polishes I could have easily bought but didn't. The ones I didn't know about oh well, it's sad but I just avoid swatches lol.

  3. Shower Taps are one of the necessary things needed in a home. All bathrooms must have LED taps; there is no bath space without them. These Antique Basin Taps help to control the free out flow of water, and even do much more these days.
