Hello hello! I have my last Celestial Cosmetics post for you for 2015. Sad but true! I’m brining you two limited edition polishes for this month; December LE 2015 and Christmas LE 2015. Let’s jump right in and look at December’s LE, shall we?
DECEMBER LE 2015
The December LE is a take on the December birthstone tanzanite, which is a gem only found in Tanzania and is very rare. It alternates between the colours sapphire blue, violet and burgundy. The polish is a bright blue scattered holo with violet shimmer. I really liked how he violet shimmer looked in natural lighting. I tried to capture it in the above picture but it didn’t come out to play! I applied two coats and a top coat of Celestial Cosmetics Solar Ray Quick Dry Top Coat. Even though I used a base, this stained my nails slightly at the edges so please do wear a base coat. The formula was wonderful to work with though, albeit the staining.
CHRISTMAS LE 2015
The idea behind the Christmas LE is a Christmas tree in a bottle, a concept I just love. I think the green crelly with green sparks is the perfect base for the variety of glitter it includes: pink dots, silver triangles, red holo glitter, green microglitter, blue squares and orange holo hexes. I will admit I had a bit of difficulty with the application. I found the glitter difficult to work with and I was unable to get any triangles onto my nails, which I actually don’t mind. In the end to get the application right I applied one normal coat as best I could and then dabbed a second coat over the top of it, as well as placing glitter in certain spots and fishing for glitter. I then gave it two coats of Celestial Cosmetics Light Year Quick Dry Top Coat as I found it definitely needed a heavier top coat to keep all the glitter pieces smooth.

So there you have them, my last Celestial Cosmetics swatches for this year. What do you think? Because of the break over Christmas I hope to have a couple more posts up before the New Year. I was even thinking of doing a New Year’s Eve “look” so we’ll see if I can get around to it. Thanks for reading!
