Jindie Nails *Santa Claws Collection*

Happy November girls and boys! I hope everyone had a safe Halloween. I spent mine finishing up all of the pictures for this post, so I hope you all like it! I warn you right now this post will be very, very picture heavy! I assure you though, it is well worth it! I now present to you the full Santa Claws Collection by Jindie Nails.

Santa Claws: White, red, green and black matte glitters in a clear base, made to look like Santa's suit, belt and all. 

All pictures of Santa Claws are 2 coats over L'Oreal Because You're Worth It.
Topped with 1 coat Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and 1 coat Sally Hansen Mega Shine

Any bubbling seen is from the top coat, sorry!

Santa Claws was very easy to use no fishing, no major settling. I really loved the look over gold, it completed the full Santa look for me. I'm also really digging the all square glitters! 

Mrs. Claws: Dark pink linear holo. 

All pictures of Mrs. Claws are 2 coats no topcoat.

Mrs. Claws has amazing application. It's so smooth and shiny that I didn't miss my top coat one bit! 2 coats was absolutely perfect for full opacity! The holo was strong in this as well, much more than I was able to capture in the photos, you can even see a slight amount of the effect in the indoor pictures as well! I was very impressed

Noel: Red, white and neon green ultra-fine matte hex glitters, plus metallic green sparkle.

All pictures of Noel are 2 coats no undies, topped with 1 coat of NPB Glitter Food and 
1 coat SH Mega Shine.

As I said I only used 2 coats and I thought it looked perfectly covered, looking at the pictures I see a 3rd coat would have been better for complete coverage. I prefer to use no undies with ultra-fine glitters, just my personal preference. This could just as easily have been worn over any color you would like and look amazing! With any glitter, like this especially, you need to make sure to let each coat dry thoroughly or you will have clumping and dragging, so it's not the polishes fault, you just need to be patient. :)

Holly: Green and white matte hex, larger red matte hex and dark green shimmer, giving you the look of a snowy holly bush! 

All pictures of Holly are 2 coats over Wet n Wild Break the Ice, topped with 1 coat of NPB Glitter Food and 1 coat Sally Hansen Mega Shine.

This just looks so much like Christmas! The small glitters paired with the larger red really captures the look of a holly bush! There were no problems getting any of the glitters out, application was easy peasy! 

Silent Night: Dark midnight blue jelly with purple-pink shimmer. various silver and blue holographic glitters including moons, stars and hexes.

All pictures of Silent Night are 2 coats topped with 1 coat NPB Glitter Food and 1 coat SH Mega Shine.

There is some fishing required for your larger glitters, moons, stars and large hexes, which is expected of any larger glitters. My recommendations for application of this beauty are to apply 1 coat then place your moons, stars and larger hexes, then apply your second coat. This will give you the squishy jelly sandwich look. :)

Blue Blue Xmas: Royal blue linear holo.

All pictures of Blue Blue Xmas are 2 coats no top coat.

In comparison to Mrs Claws the holo isn't as strong but it is still an absolutely stunning polish. It was just as easy to apply as Mrs Claws, the shine is amazing!

Kiss Me Under the Mistletoe: True red jelly with light and dark green holo hex and gold holo hex glitters.

All pictures of Kiss Me Under the Mistletoe are 2 coats topped with 1 coat of SH Mega Shine.

I know the pictures seem a bit orange and in the bottle, but it really is a true red. It is absolutely beautiful!  Application was a breeze!

Just Elfing Around: Pastel green, white and cherry red hexes. Silver and lime green holo hexes in a clear base.

All pictures of Just Elfing Around are 2 coats over 2 coats WnW Poison Ivy, topped with 1 coat of NPB Glitter Food and 1 coat of SH Mega Shine.

To me this is one of the biggest surprises of the collection. I had seen Jen (creator of Jindie Nails) post swatches on Instagram but to see this in person, WOW! Photographs can not do this bad boy justice! There is so much going on in this glitter bomb. The sparkle on top of all of the colors it's like Christmas puked and Jen bottled it up for us! LOL With one swipe there were a ton of different glitters on the nail, I'm sure this could easily be worn by itself with a couple extra coats! 

Candy Cane: White creme/jelly base with cherry red matte and metallic hex and a few metallic green hex glitters with green sparkle!

All pictures of Candy Cane are 3 coats topped with 1 coat SH Mega Shine.

This is the one I was most excited about, I'm a sucker for creme jellies! It certainly didn't disappoint! It was so easy to apply, no fishing, no streaking.

Overall the formula was consistent with each and everyone of these beauties. There was minimal settling, the only fishing that was needed was for the large glitters, and there was no pooling or flooding.
