Hi everyone! Today I'm showing you a beautiful nail polish called Poinsettia (H) from the Christmas 2014 Collection by F.U.N Lacquer. As you know by now, F.U.N Lacquer is one of my favorite indie brands, and I think one of the many reasons is the originality and uniqueness of every single nail polish. The Christmas 2014 Collection consists of 8 nail polishes in total :) There are 4 different shades each with their own holographic version, and today you'll see the holo-fied Poinsettia. Find the final verdict and buying info at the bottom of the post :)
Poinsettia (H) is a multichrome ranging through vibrant hues of red, copper, gold and green. There's been added fine holo particles and small holographic glitter for that extra special sparkle! Now this is amazing - all the multichromes in this collection has been formulated to be worn alone and applied in 2-3 coats, but it can also serve as a multichrome top coat on a dark base color. Remember to still top it off with regular top coat for a shiny finish.
This color is so unique to me, and I fell in love with it instantaneously. The base is flawless and application is a dream. The color scheme is brilliantly capturing the main colors associated with Christmas - green and red - and manages to show off two contrasting colors with ease, uniting them in a way that doesn't seem forced and doesn't result in a mushy brown mess. Against the base color(s) the added holo glitter looks like lights on a decorated Christmas tree, and it gives such a cozy, homey and magical feel to it. It fits so well with the source of inspiration being a Poinsettia flower, also known as a Christmas Star - a beautiful red flower with contrasting green leaves. I LOVE when it all comes together like this! I'm absolutely hooked, and I think you will be too.
To conclude this blog post I must say I'm yet again impressed by the talented and creative Yuin Ying; I can't do anything but love her for being such an incredible, sweet person and a very dear friend :) She manages to amaze me every single time she releases a new collection! This Christmas collection is yet another hit in my eyes. Poinsettia (H) is so special; it flaunts its perfected transition between opposing colors with ease, which may sound like an impossible thing to do.
The Christmas 2014 Collection consists of 8 nail polishes in total, 4 different shades each with their own holographic version: C'est Noël, C'est Noël (H), Poinsettia, Poinsettia (H), Mistletoe Kiss, Mistletoe Kiss (H), Royal Chapel & Royal Chapel (H). Please note that all F.U.N Lacquer nail polishes are 5-free and cruelty free YAY! :)
