I have been meaning to re-swatch 365 Days of Color's Holiday Collection and I have finally gotten around to it. When I originally did the swatches, I kept saying how I needed to try layering them over base colors. I am starting with Trimming the Tree.
To jog your memory, here is what Trimming the Tree looks like without a base color. This is 3 coats.
It really is quite beautiful on its own!
I chose L'OREAL Hyde Park as my base color. This is 2 coats.
And the bottle shot! :)
I added 1 coat of Trimming the Tree.
It really gives it a nice deep color and I love the rubber finish!
I thought that I would trim the tree!
I used Essie Good as Gold and the limited edition plate from Bundle Monster BMSE1.
Also, 2 coats of HK Girl.
So which way do you like it?
I think it looks great both ways. I love the squishy jelly look alone and I love the deep green with the base. Trimming the Tree is just awesome however you wear it! And remember, it is scented. I have been wearing it all day, made dinner, washed dishes, washed my hands numerous times, and the scent is still quite strong. Like little Christmas Trees on my nails! :)
