OPI Holiday! Holiday Glow!!!

Holiday Glow is pretty if not necessarily the stand-out of the OPI Holiday 2009 collection. It appears to me to be a chocolate brown containing tons of tiny silvery glitter. You won't get the bling of bright colors and large flashy glitter, but instead a sophisticated dark polish that has a ton of sparkle. Perfect for winter!


The first coat goes on really sheer, and you can see the silvery glitter.

Holiday Glow reaches it true potential once you get the second coat on. It's got a nice glossy dark coverage, and you can still see the little silvery sparkle. Another coat can improve the coverage but may not be completely necessary. I put a third coat on my ring and pinky fingers to see how much difference it would make.

In shade, you can see the glitter reflecting, below:

Again, this is a pretty polish and fills a need in the winter dark polish wardrobe. If you want to wear dark drown polish, and want a bit of shimmer and sparkle, Holiday Glow is a great choice. Is it unique? I don't have a lot of expertise, but it does seem quite similar to one of my limited edition mini-polishes in my Borghese holiday set (review to come!).
