Hello my lovelies! I have three AH-Mazing polishes from Big Spoon Lacquer’s Holiday collection to share with you. I am super excited to show them to you! Big Spoon Lacquers is a brand new indie polish line and so far I have been uber-delighted with Pauline’s lacquers! I could not pick a favorite from these three!
I’m going to cut right to the chase and show you these pretty polishes! First up we have Meet Me Under the Mistletoe!
Meet Me Under the Mistletoe is a delightfully delicate and feminine polish. It made me feel all kinds of girly! The polish is a sheer white crelly with a sprinkling of metallic magenta hexes and metallic lime green dots. It does go on sheer as I mentioned but it does build up nicely or it could be paired with undies. I do not tend to like using undies for jelly or crelly polishes as it causes them to lose some of their squishiness (which is the reason I love them).
Picture shows four thin coats with topcoat. As with the other Big Spoon Lacquers I reviewed here there was no need for glitter food and the glitter spread is very nice and required no manipulation or fishing.
Polishes used in manicure: Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu, Big Spoon Lacquers Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, Glisten & Glow HK Girl Quick Dry Topcoat.
Next up we have a BEAUTIFUL jelly based polish. I have to tell you I knew when I saw the pictures of it that I would need to own it. Kiss Me at Midnight is a lovely polish that I can see working for the Holidays or all year long!
As with all jelly polishes this one is another sheer polish but it does build up to opacity or it can be paired with undies. Kiss Me at Midnight is a squishy denim blue jelly polish and it is packed with aqua and magenta micro glitter. I LOVE it!
I actually would have done just two coats but there would have been a little more VNL which I would have been ok with but I did three which shows only the tiniest bit of VNL and four coats would have reached full opacity. It was a dream to apply.

Finally, my favorite of the three that I received. It is simply to die for.
This lovely polish is Christmas Tree In a Bottle. It literally LOOKS like a Christmas Tree in a Bottle. I was giddy with excitement that I received this polish in my review package. It is a real stunner of a polish and one that I foresee being one of my all time favorite Holiday polishes.
Christmas Tree In a Bottle is lovely green jelly based polish with tiny matte yellow and medium sized matte blue hexes, tiny metallic magenta hexes, teensie tiny holographic dots, and holographic gold bars. It catches the light so beautifully and just sparkles and glitters like crazy!
It is a jelly based polish but builds up to opacity in TWO coats – all of the squishiness that you could dream of in a jelly based polish and as with all of Pauline’s glitter polishes is it packed to the brim with all kinds of glittery goodness, no fishing, digging, manipulating, or otherwise messing around just easy breezy application!
