Finding the Perfect Christmas Nail Polish
YAB Cosmetics Christmas Collection
I have been extremely lucky to sample YAB's four piece Christmas nail polish collection, and what a collection it is! These polishes are the same luxurious, high quality as found in their previous products and the colours are absolutely perfect. All of YAB Cosmetics products are cruelty free and vegan friendly, and hand blended here in the UK. They are a business to keep your eye on as they produce the most desirable and unique colours not so easily found on the high street.
Let's dive straight in and please tap on any of the photos for a live swatch of the products, I am very new to YouTube and have a lot to learn, but hopefully you will find these videos helpful...
I tried this beautiful, glittery gold over both a dark base colour and a natural base, and it looked stunning both ways. Just like Majestic from their last collection, by changing the base coat you can create a completely different look with the same polish. It dries to a smooth finish, there is no graininess from the glitters, but I would still recommend a topcoat just to really enhance the shimmer and sparkle.
It's the finishing touch for any Christmas party outfit, it will glitter away and look amazing as you dance the night away.
This badboy is my most favourite out of the collection. It is such a creamy formula, so easily applied and self-levelling which is great if you can be heavy handed on application like myself.
The colour is beautiful, and actually quite unlike anything I've come across before. It has a slight colour shift, under different lighting it can look quite dark like a chocolate minstrel, then under different lighting again can look light like a chocolate toffee! There is also a subtle scattering of glitter, just to add to it's uniqueness!
The colour shift in this polish almost makes it look a little metallic, though it dries to a super shiny high gloss finish. Again it is self-levelling and so easily applied and I must mention that with all of these products I had absolutely no staining around the cuticles or nails which can often happen with dark, highly pigmented polishes.
This purple is so elegant and very rich in colour, and would in my opinion suit any skin tone, even pasty pale skin like mine haha! But I do think it would look gorgeous next to a darker or tanned skin tone.
Another must-have! Kissmass is unlike any other red nail polish released for the festive season. It steers away from the typical deep red or glitter and instead offers something truly special. The colour shift in this polish is probably the most obvious than the others in the collection, as you move your hand under the light you can see a very pretty pinky/violet shift popping through the red.
It also has a very pretty shimmer, nothing too over the top to take away from the colour but just to add a little something extra.
The whole collection can be yours for just £23 or if you want to buy singles they cost £7 each. I know that when I'm buying from YAB, I'm paying for top quality, stylish, one of a kind pieces and I can whole-heartedly recommend this indie-brand and it's super glamorous products to you!
Thank you as always for reading,
