Holiday Nutcracker Collection - Mystic Muse Nail Lacquer

This holiday season Mystic Muse launched not only an entire winter collection but also a limited edition holiday collection. When I say limited, I mean extremely limited - only 100 sets were made.  The Nutcracker Collection has 4 colors, all with different finishes based on the classic holiday ballet. Additionally the bottles have special edition matching labels to the artwork for the collection created by Mystic Muse. This is one really sophisticated holiday collection.

I hope you picked one of these sets up because I believe they have already sold out! They arrived like a beautiful Christmas gift, individually wrapped with a holiday Mystic Muse themed packaging and a Mystic Muse pin and numbered card.  When I opened my box and saw that C. Lynn at Mystic Muse had sent me set #003 I was beyond flattered.  As a new blogger Mystic Muse has been such a great partner of my blog and my love of polish.


Nutcracker - A creally in a beautiful Nutcracker (tomato) red. Opaque in 2 thin coats with Mystic Muse top coat. I'm really looking forward to doing some holiday nail art with this classic color.

Sugar Plum - An ever so sweet purple polish iced with a gold frost. Any sugar plum princess is going to want to wear this delicate, feminine polish.  First coat will look a little thin but its totally opaque in 2-3 thin coats. I love the shimmer of gold this polish has, even in very low light.

Mouse King - A color shifting polish. Its base is a regal purple that shifts thru, Gold, Purple and red depending on the angle the light hits it. Apply 2-3 coats for opacity. I found that the "red" shift looks a lot like the Pantone Color of the year too - talk about being 'on trend'. This polish has a deep pearlesent purple hue in low light which is really pretty.  I found myself constantly looking at this polish in different lights 

Clara - an amped up, ever so sparkly micro glitter silver holo! Great as a top coat, or with 3 coats is opaque! The sparkle in this one just blows me away. It will look great with just about any color. The micro glitters were easy to spread and the base was not goopy. It also dried quickly in between coats, so use any many as you like for full out sparkle!! This one would be amazing for a New Years eve bash! 

So what do you think? Which is your favorite? Tell me below!

I can't wait to show you the special edition Silver Bells set and 24K next!
