OPI – Plum Full of Cheer

Here is the last of the OPI Holi-Daze Ulta Exclusives. I saw and loved Plum full of Cheer and All the Berry Best – and ended up getting Gift of Gold for free (Alli chose to get the Holi-daze mini set instead). I will say that Alli’s experience with Gift of Gold sounds very  much like mine with Mad as a Hatter – very thick, huge chipping problems – etc.

Plum Full of Cheer is a red based purple – with red and purple shimmer – it’s really gorgeous and I don’t think I have a purple quite like it – the application was amazing and smooth – two coats are all you need. There was a little duo action going on in the bottle – but it’s not evident on the nail at all. Actually, it reminds me quite a bit of Nars – Purple Rain and since Alli has both I hope she’ll do a comparison for me (and you!) – I think it may be a bit more red than purple rain.

Forgive my pictures, I have almost no sunlight on my porch for most of the day so I get to huddle in corners and even then I had to use flash…

What’s your favorite holiday polish?



  1. I’m a sucker for purple polishes – this one is lovely. So far, my favorite holiday polish is China Glaze Holly Jolly from the most recent collection. It’s a lovely shade of green.

    1. Ohh I like Jolly Holly. I’ve really been getting back to loving greens again… I got the set with the Mistletoe Kisses, Mrs. Claus, and the candle (On sale for 6.95 at Sally’s!) – I really really want party hearty but I didn’t decide I wanted it til recently – and I can’t find it anywhere….

  2. I’m wearing All the Berry Best right now, I really wanted Plum Full of Cheer but by the time I got to ULTA, they were out (and I was already buying Sparkle-icious from the Burlesque line, so I didn’t need more gold glitter…). I like Berry enough and it’s pretty for Christmas, but I much prefer to wear darker and vampy colors.

  3. I was thinking of putting All the Berry Best on actually 🙂 It’s what I’ve been wearing on my toes lately 🙂 — I really really like Plum full of Cheer though – very pretty purple – I need to try and get a better picture 🙂
