So I’m super excited for this post – I’ve been seeing sneak peeks of these for awhile now and I couldn’t wait to get my grabby hands on them! I have four polishes that are just perfect for the holidays. One Christmas and two Hannukah polishes plus a 2.0 version of a classic Alchemy Lacquers Polish. We don’t get to see a lot of Hannukah polishes so I’m pretty happy to see them in this collection!
Up first are the gildeds. I’m going to start with Gilded Holly:
Another win Alchemy Lacquers. I am in total love with all the gilded polishes and there is nothing else like them out there. This is a green based polish with a gold/silver shift and bright red and green metallic and holographic glitter.
Application is as perfect as I’ve come to expect. I’ve been following and reviewing for Alchemy Lacquers a long time and there is a level of excellence that I’ve come to expect. Glitter spread is perfect and opacity is easily achieved. Pictures show two coats with topcoat.
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Alchemy Lacquers – Gilded Holly; Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That
Next up is Gilded Dreidel, one of the two Hannukah polishes:
Again loving this one. This addition to the gilded collection is a blue based polish with the characteristic silver/gold shift. I’ve noticed that depending on the base color sometimes the silver or gold is more prominent. In Gilded Holly the gold came out to play more but in this one the silver seems to be more prevalent. Despite all the sparkly goodness of the gilded part of the polish she packed it with shades of blue and silver metallic and holographic glitters. Total sparkle city!
Perfect application. Opaque in two coats. Glitter dispersal is great. I often feel like a broken record on this issue so I’m going to keep it short and sweet this time.

Next up is Tekhelet
Tekhelet is a Hebrew word that means turquoise or blue and refers specifically to a sacred dye that was mentioned several times in the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh. This is a super sparkly mix of blue and silver metallic and holographic microglitters. It’s like a blue discoball of sparkly fun on the nail!
Now you’d think hmm microglitter in a clear base that sounds like a nightmare to bring to opacity if it’s even possible but I assure you that with these it’s not only possible but EASY. These pictures show two coats NO undies. That’s right all that sparkly goodness doesn’t even need undies and even with my prominent VNL I didn’t need more than two coats!

Next up is Snowberry a classic Alchemy Lacquers that has been revamped so I’m fondly calling it Snowberry 2.0:
Snowberry is a silver foil holographic base with royal blue holographic glitters. It’s like she took all the holo that one could want and stuffed it into one magical polish. I often find that I’m bored with linear holographic polishes because they are so one note and no one ever seems to put glitter in them and I admit I’m addicted to glitter. But every so often a maker gets the urge to buck the status quo and put glitter in linear holographic base and I love it every time. I’ve already worn this one twice. Yeah I love it that much.
Just look at the holo in that and this is under artificial lighting. In the sunshine it’s downright distracting! Two coats perfect application. I had no problems with consistency or glitter dispersal. Two coats plus topcoat!

As per usual this is where I can tell you where to find your own Alchemy Lacquers polishes. You can check out their Website or Etsy Store to learn more about all the available polishes. You should definitely also check out her Facebook and Instagram for sneak peeks and swatches of all these amazing polishes and things coming up in the future. As a fun thing this season you can order a Secret Santa or Hannukah Harry gift that can be sent anonymously to a gift recipient. This is a lot of fun and takes the guesswork out of what to get that hard to buy for person!
