Sure I Like Mistletoe Kisses

First, if you haven't entered my latest giveaway, you could be cheating yourself out of a good massage!  Click here and enter the 'Just Chill' giveaway for an electronic muscle massager.  Oh, and due to a discussion with a fellow European blogger, you can recharge this device using your USB port on your computer!!!

If you follow as many nail/makeup blogs as I do (just check my blog roll; all of them are worthy of your time), we have been discussing our Christmas/Holiday manicures.  Here is the ONE that I'm going to wear for better than a week. 
 This is China Glaze's 'Mistletoe Kisses' from their current Holiday collection.
At the sunny window, I am loving this more and more with each gaze. 

I was rummaging around my stash looking for any Holiday polishes I wanted to swatch and get in before Christmas.  Looked like I had pretty well got them all but then ran upon this one. 

I guess I saved the best for last; this one ROCKS me!!! Mega-tons of glitter for Mega-tons of sparkle-topia.  I'm flying to Denver on Wednesday and staying a week with my brother and his family.  This is the manicure I'm taking with me.
It's overcast and a tad chilly today in Orlando.  But even outside you cannot miss this over the top shine and glitter.  The polish was a bit gritty.  However, I have put on 2 coats of Seche Clear, one coat of Seche Vite, with another coat of Clear and another coat of Vite.  I want to 'secure' this mani for as many days as I can.  My niece and brother are highly sensitive to odors so if I wish to change my polish, I will have to go to a salon.  But, I'd like to keep this the entire time.
A green polish with so much green micro-glitter in it that I'm sure to get extra attention with the TBA on Wednesday. 

And on that note, I have always been pulled aside and get the extra 'go over.'  Not sure why and the officer always apologies for it.  I don't have a cow about it.  Seriously, I WANT them to check my flight carefully!  And now, I can always expect it because I had my hip replaced almost 3 years ago.  I have a card that I carry stating that I have had a replacement, but they still check me over.  I'm surprised at how heavy a fake hip is, so that's a lot of metal.

My opinion is that this is a small price to pay for me and my fellow travelers to stay as safe as we can.  And it's worth it to see my little brother and his family. 
I hope it wears like IRON!!  The photos don't even come close to representing the twinkle and sparkle of this polish and that's a shame.

Do you have this green?  How do you like it whether you have it or not?

Yup! I LOVE this color!! I have on a Color Club Red glitter right now (Yule Love It) which is very festive. But tomorrow I change for the official Holiday mani and this is what I had planned to wear. There is nothing more appropriate for this coming week, I think. Happy Holidays, you have beautiful nails!!

This polish single handedly began my love of glitter polishes.
