ellagee: The Holiday Wishes Collection

Press Sample

Good morning, dear readers! This week seems to have drug on forever, and I am so glad today is Friday! My in-laws will be arriving later today and will be spending time with us all next week leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday. My boys adore them, and I am excited to see their faces when they arrive.

For today's blog post, I have a beautiful collection by ellagee to share with you. The Holiday Wishes Collection is a five-piece collection with a special sixth colour that is a limited edition bonus shade added to all purchases of the full collection during Black Friday weekend only.
This gorgeous collection boasts holographic nail lacquers in holiday colours but with a softer vintage feel. It reminds me of Christmases of yesteryear, especially those from the old A Christmas Carol and A Christmas Story films. Let's check out the colours, shall we?

Hearth and Home
A sparkling rose gold / soft copper with intense linear holographic shimmer

It is impossible to pick a favorite polish from this collection, but Hearth and Home is definitely in my top five picks (see what I did there?)! It is a fabulous choice for when I want to wear a very toned down colour that isn't nude! I enjoy true bright golds, but this softer version has stolen my heart. The formula was fantastic, and I used two coats for these photos.

Health and Comfort
A sparkling royal blue with intense linear holographic shimmer

There are blue holographic polishes, and then there is Health and Comfort. I've see a lot of blue holo shades, but something about the vintage twist on this shade really sets it apart from the rest. I used two flawless coats for these photos.

Happiness and Love
A sparkling rosy coral with intense linear holographic shimmer

I LOVE Happiness and Love! This softer red shade is so beautiful! There are so many classic bright red shades this season, and Happiness and Love is a refreshing change. I had no issues with the formula- it applied nicely for me; I used two coats for these photos.

Family and Friends
A sparkling purple with intense linear holographic shimmer

I hope everyone has "Family and Friends" as glorious as this shade! I wasn't sure how I would feel about a vintage purple hue, but I dig this! The formula was great, and I used two coats for these photos.

Peace and Joy
A sparkling sea green with intense linear holographic shimmer

Peace and Joy is definitely another favorite from this collection. I love all things that remind me of the ocean, and this fabulous blue-green shade is perfect! The formula was fantastic like the rest of the collection,; I used two coats for these photos.

Customers that purchase the full five-piece collection shown above over Black Friday weekend will receive the bonus shade, Holiday Wishes 2015.

Holiday Wishes 2015
A sparkling silver with intense linear holographic shimmer

I definitely need more silver polishes in my collection! It's a shade that always seems to fly under my radar, and I put on something like Holiday Wishes 2015 and I wonder how that is even possible. This shade is amazing! It is only available as a limited edition gift with purchase of the full collection Black Friday weekend, and you don't want to miss out! The full collection is strikingly beautiful, and I definitely encourage picking all of these up for your collections!

The Holiday Wishes Collection launches Friday, November 27th at 12am CST on the ellagee website here.
