It’s not really the holidays until there’s glitter on EVERYTHING. I love glitter so I subscribe to the glitteroneverything rule year around. But for some reason it becomes completely acceptable around the holidays.
Sally Hansen released 2 sets of glitter polishes for the holidays; Signed, Sealed and Sequined and Bling In The New Year. Fa La La Lavender is from the Bling In The New Year collection and basically, if you’re a girly girl like me, this polish is you….in a bottle.
Fa La La Lavender has light pink and jewel toned purple glitter suspended in a clear base. Seriously…pink and purple glitter in the same bottle!
The glitter is quite sparse. Fa La La Lavender is a glitter top coat, not a glitter polish that can be worn on its own. That being said, I found the formula to be easy to work with. I didn’t have to dab on the glitter. I used 2 coats of Fa La La Lavender over Sally Hansen Gorgeous Grape in my swatches.
I ended up really loving this polish (almost as much as I love Chris Davis…). I have nothing like this in my collection and I can see getting use out of Fa La La Lavender year around.
I’ve seen this collection in several drugstores (including CVS) though it’s not yet available anywhere on the web (that I could find).
There are oodles of swatches under the jump!

Zoya isn’t a brand I pay much attention too. And that has nothing to do with the quality of Zoya polishes. The ones I have tried I quite like. The brand generally just doesn’t excite me. This polish landed on my doorstep via my fellow TDVer, Katie. She sent it to me along with some […] Continue reading →
Remember when I said I wasn’t ready for sparkly greens? The time has come! I’ve caught a touch of Christmas fever! The baking, decorating, and holiday party rotation has begun! Yesterday was dreary, cold, and wet so I knew as soon as I woke up which polish I’d be choosing: This is Tree-mendous! This is […] Continue reading →
Lately I cannot stay away from the glitter. I’m loving it. My nails hate me! Once again I found myself reaching for OPI Polka.com. While it was a late addition to my collection it’s turned out to be one of my most used glitters and definitely the polish I’ve gotten the most use of from […] Continue reading →
Oh my gosh, y’all. If you caught my post last weekend then you know I went to the Iron Bowl. And well….it was by most accounts the game of the century and the best finish to a sporting event ever. Auburn runs deep in my family. I was the fourth generation to earn a degree […] Continue reading →
I’m about to sound really crazy…. But. A manicure came to me in a dream. No, seriously. I’m not even making this up! It was a navy and gray half moon manicure with blue glitter. Anyway, I clearly needed a gray base for the manicure. I started looking through my stash and found Pelican Gray. […] Continue reading →
I’m back! Not that there was any reason to notice I was gone…. Before I went out of town I scheduled plenty of posts but I have been gone for about a week. It’s good to be back! But my nails definitely suffered when I was gone. After some SERIOUS nail rehab I finally got […] Continue reading →
Y’all. I love this manicure! It’s been awhile since I’ve done any nail art that involved sponging. I forgot how pretty it can be. For this manicure I used deborah lippmann Rolling in the Deep as the base color. I let that dry completely then sponged Orly Rage just on the tips using an eyeshadow […] Continue reading →
Well, I suppose December makes it appropriate to talk about ice, right? I live in the South for a reason. I don’t do winter. But I’m perfectly happy to try out something icy looking on my nails! butter LONDON released 2 Double Take duos for the 2013 holiday season; the Ice duo and the Fire […] Continue reading →
How is it December already? I can’t believe it! It’s taken me this long to fully accept that it’s Fall – it gets harder as it gets colder and the leaves go from beautiful to brown. At any rate, I have rediscovered my favorite Fall in a bottle polish: Harvest Moon just in time for […] Continue reading →
