Let's (finally) finish up with all my Christmas manicures, shall we? Well, technically I still have one more, but it's not actually a Christmas polish, it's just a polish I happened to wear before Christmas, so it's fair game for after the Holidays. ;-) I would've shown this to you in order, but I got so excited I just HAD to show you Smitten with Mittens and Party Hearty first. You forgive me, right? Excellent.
Meet Me Under the Mistletoe is a deep blue-leaning pine green with a finish that falls somewhere between a glass-fleck and a foil. I'm gonna say it's more of a glass-fleck. Anywho, application was great on this one, although it did take a good three coats for opacity. If you're a thinner coat kinda person you may need four. I wasn't sure what to expect with this one, since Rach from stuff i (s)watched loved it, but Piff from Polish or Perish hated it. So, how did I feel about this one?...

Meh. Just completely meh. Right in the middle. I don't hate it. I don't love it. I like it okay, but not really that much. It was nice and pretty and got a couple of compliments, but it just didn't wow me. I think it may actually have been just a smidge too blue-toned for me. From what I can tell, China Glaze Glittering Garland seems to be a warmer and more vibrant version of Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, so I may need to try that one out. You can see photos and comparisons of the two here from Cilucia.
I swapped for my bottle, but if you're interested in Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, there's great news! As of a couple of months(ish) ago, it's part of the core collection at Sally's, so you can easily get your hands on this one. I can't put my whole heart into recommending this one, but I know a ton of people are really fond of it. Different strokes for different folks, right? :-)
Well, in case I don't make it back here before the end of the week, I hope you all have a fun and safe and happy New Year! :-D
