On the Third Day of Christmas, my nail art gave to me...Peppermint/Candy Canes!

I am so excited for today! All the lack of enthusiasm for Santa will be made up for in today's post. Today is a bit of a "two-fer" not only is it a theme day but I will also be giving a review on an amazing polish. I was introduced to Whimsical Ideas by Pam through awesome swatches of Seuss (I kinda need that color) at Chalkboard Nails. My reaction was I have to get my hands on those some time soon. I controlled myself and decided to wait until the holiday collection, Eight Whimsical Nights was released on Black Friday.

The first of the two shades that I ordered was Peppermint Schtick. This glitter coat is all kinds of awesome. It's a selection of matte red hexes, opalescent white hexes, and metallic red micro hexes in a clear base. The application is smooth and even. There is no need to dab this polish to hunt and peck for glitter or to place it on. I was so pleased and thrilled that I sent a thank you e-mail to Pam with pictures of this manicure. She is an extremely busy lady with the high demand for her collection, but guess what- she wrote back a lovely note and even posted the pics on her Facebook page. Cool nail polish and a cool chick. What more can I say?

So on to the mani... oh yes, lovelies, it's another trigger manicure. Not sure what this says about my attitude towards the holidays this year. *giggle* I started with a base of Julep's Delaunay- a warm chili pepper red. 

I striped my index finger and thumb with Stripe Rite's white to emulate a candy cane. Meanwhile, I added a coat of Peppermint Schtick to my remaining fingers. I really think the white hexes look like pieces of glossy peppermint candy. Yum!

So I leave you with two missions, check out Whimsical Ideas from Pam and visit the fabulous Kelly at Tuxarina. I know Kelly was super psyched for today's theme as well.

Also, a big shout out to Debra and all the "Whimsical Lovelies" who have stopped by after seeing my swatches!

On the fourth day of Christmas, my nail art gave to me...Snowmen ( and another review)!

Stay tuned...
