Snowman Holiday Nail Polishes 2012!

Holiday Snowman Nail Polish

Around the holidays each year you might spot these cute Snowman Nail Polishes at your local drugstore for an average of $2 to $3 a bottle. They're only around for a couple months, and they're totally adorable and make for great stocking stuffers.

The Snowman Nail Polishes are available in a fairly large selection of fun holiday colors and some really pretty glitters. Although I see these polishes every year, I've never used them. I know some nail polish junkies love these, so I picked up a couple bottles to give them a try.

The odd thing is that neither bottle is labeled with an actual name or color, so I couldn't tell you the name of these, but I thought I'd share with you a couple of photos.

The pink polish is a raspberry pink filled with purple shimmer. It reminds me a lot of Essie Jamaica Me Crazy. The formula is really easy to work with. It's thin, yet it's not very sheer. I found that it dries very quickly and I don't have to wait much time at all to apply my next coat. It's opaque with two coats. It has a dull finish, so I applied two coats of a shiny top coat (Seche Vite).

The glitter polish is a festive combination of chunky silver, gold, blue, red, purple and green glitters. It's sheer with one coat, but the glitters get distributed pretty evenly across the nail. It's a really fun polish to top off your nails with.







The polish is a little more purple toned in person - it photographed rather red-toned on my nails.






I apologize for the weird lighting and my dry hands. I had to take these photos indoors and the lighting wasn't cooperating.

I really like both polishes. The lasting power is average. I'm hard on my hands and I had chips in a couple of days. I've had the pink on my toes for a little over a week, and they're holding up perfectly.

I purchased these from Jewel-Osco for $2.99 each. I haven't popped in my Walgreens to see if they have them, but I've read that some people spotted them at their local Rite Aid.

  1. They look great on you and super festive! I'm not a big fan of glitter polishes because I find that it takes forever to get it off, even after soaking in acetone. I just recently purchased Illamasqua Scarab polish on recommendation from a wonderful Sephora employee and I am in love. It almost gives the appearance of Shellac after two coats and a top coat (I use Nails Inc). If you haven't tried it, I would recommend it.

  15. Is it just me or does that pink polish look nothing close to the color in the bottle? In the bottle it leans more on the purple side. It's still pretty though, very festive!
