HB Beauty Bar: Nanacoco Holiday Swatch Spam

Wow, I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner! (And I still have a lot of holiday nail polishes and nail art looks to show you guys, haha!) Anyway, today I have four Nanacoco polishes from HB Beauty Bar that I picked out for the holiday season. These shades come in a variety of exciting finishes, but the colors are classy and perfect to celebrate with! I totally forgot to take a title photo for this blog post, so let's jump right into it:

Irresistable is a gorgeous dark red shimmer that's practically opaque in one coat. This is a great classic shade of red that you can wear all year long, but I just love colors like this during the holidays. Application was a tad brush-strokey, as is normal for this type of polish, but a careful second coat definitely kept everything looking nice. Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

Lime Time is a bright lime green with some serious gold shimmer. I know, I know - this is totally a summer color. But I couldn't resist picking out such a cheerful shade of green! Okay, but seriously - this is a great color to have in your collection, especially for the summer months. Brush strokes were slightly visible on this one, but again, a careful second coat evened it out. Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Mermaid Lake is an insanely gorgeous aqua foil. This one had a crazy sparkle, and I just loved it! Again, this is a great summer color, but I also think it's a cheerful color to wear in the winter, especially during Chanukah. Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.

Finally, we have Surfer's Dream, a beautiful blue creme. (I think at this point we've established that I like wearing summery colors in the winter. Whatever!) This is a gorgeous color to wear year round. Blue cremes are one of my go-tos for nail polish on any given day, so I love having a shade like this, especially with an easy formula. My only issue with this polish is that it came with a wonky brush - but it was easy enough to work with. Shown above is two coats with top coat.

At $3 USD per bottle from HB Beauty Bar, these polishes are practically a steal! And as always, you can use the code POLISHCHALLENGE at checkout for 15% off your entire order.

What do you think of my holiday picks? Which is your favorite?

  1. I love that one, and it's SO sparkly!!

  2. Thanks Lisa! I will definitely have to use the blue creme for nail art :)

  3. Me too! And its not really my kind of color/finish at all usually. But it looks so pretty!

  4. I think you should do a tape manicure with Mermaid Lake and Surfer's Dream! They're an awesome pairing color and name wise!

  5. They are all pretty but Mermaid Lake is freaking gorgeous!!!

  6. The red and blue foil are definitely stand outs to me, and such pretty swatches!
