Urban Decay Ziggy

 - by Playing with Polish

Ziggy is a very sparkly gold and blue glitter polish from Urban Decay’s holiday kit. Although it is probably dense enough to stand on its own, I decided to use it as a top coat over other colors. I feel like it is not that unique, but it is fun and festive.

Urban Decay Hot Mess

Hot Mess is a deep pink glass fleck polish from Urban Decay’s 2011 holiday set (a set of 6 mini polishes retailing for $28). It has great sparkle! My camera was a bit overwhelmed by the combination of the bright color and the sparkle. Good stuff!! :-D It is quite similar to OPI’s Let Me Entertain You from last year’s Burlesque collection. They are not exactly the same, but awfully close.

In the comparison shot it looks like the OPI (on the left) is less glossy than the Urban Decay, but I did not see this in real life. Both comparison shots were taken using two coats and shown without a top coat.

Application was excellent. Two coats and a top coat shown.

Urban Decay Apocalypse & CND Effects Copper Pearl

Urban Decay Apocalypse

Apocalypse is one of the minis from Urban Decay’s Apocalyptic Nail Kit. It is a deep eggplant purple crème. It is a nice winter color, but not very unique.

Application was good. Two coats and a top coat shown.

CND Effects Copper Pearl

Copper Pearl is my second CND Effects. In November I reviewed Ice Blue Shimmer. I am looking forward to trying more of these top coats! They really change personality of the polishes you use with them. Copper Pearl over Apocalypse yielded a much warmer reddish Burgundy shimmer. Pretty!!! My husband did not seem too impressed by Apocalypse, but he loved it with a top coat of Effects. :-D

Application was excellent. Two coats of Apocalypse and one coat of CND Copper Pearl shown.

Urban Decay Apocalyptic Nail Kit

 - by Playing with Polish

Priced at only $13, Urban Decay’s Apocalyptic Nail Kit is a fun holiday gift or stocking stuffer for the nail polish lover in your life (or maybe a holiday goodie  for yourself :-D )! It looks like the kit is a Beauty.com exclusive. It contains 7 mini polishes: White Widow, Gunmetal, Apocalypse, Grunge, Meltdown, Big Bang and Fbomb.

Big Bang

Big Bang is a bright raspberry pink foil. It looks more red in photographs than it did in real life. IThis bring pop of shimmery color is just what I need for dreary overcast days! :-) I have been wearing this one for three days, and it is holding-up quite well. I often find that foils do not wear well on me, but this one is a wear winner. :-)

Application was good. Two coats and a top coat shown.

I will try to get swatches of the other colors soon. I also have some other well-priced kits to review as I think they would make great holiday gifts! :-D
