I'm Doing My Nails Today - Frosty

More holiday polish! I honestly can never have enough festive, holiday-themed polishes. They're always so fun and whimsical, and this one is no exception! I'm sharing a very new indie with you today: I'm Doing My Nails Today. Yes, that's her shop name! I think it's super cute.

This polish is called Frosty, and it is representative of Frosty the Snowman. It is a clear based filled with mostly white glitter in a couple sizes, along with black medium hexes and some red squares. I love square glitter since it is so unique, and it certainly works in this polish!

Since it is a clear base, I applied it over another polish. I used two coats of Deborah Lippmann's Let's Hear it for the Boy, and then applied two thin coats of Frosty. I went a little easy on it at first since I didn't want it to be too insane with glitter, but then wanted just a bit more. The second thin coat made it perfect! 

The glitter in this polish is dense enough that one coat will give you good coverage though. I also like how I didn't have to dig for glitter pieces. I got black hexes and red squares spread out pretty evenly without really having to try.

I really like how it looks with the blue. I wanted to choose a base color that would help show the white glitter, so I didn't choose white first, but I also didn't want it to be as dull as gray. The blue makes it look icy, and it really makes the red squares pop!

Frosty is a really cute holiday polish without being overly festive. It reminds me of snow, coal for a snowman, and the red is perfect for the holidays too! But since it's black, white, and red, it could also be used anytime, not just during winter.

I'm Doing My Nails Today can be found on Facebook, and she also has an Etsy shop! IDMNT currently has full size bottles for $7.49, and mini bottles for $4.49. Since she's really new, her shop isn't completely stocked yet, but you can get updates about new polishes and restocks on her Facebook page
