Jindie Nails Santa Claws Holiday Collection Swatches and Review

Good morning everyone!

I am so excited to share with you an awesome holiday collection by Jen from Jindie Nails. Have you guys heard of this indie brand yet? You should totally check out the shop if you haven't before...there are some super awesome polishes for sale!

So I know some of you may be thinking it's a little early for a holiday collection but once you see these I think you will have changed your mind! The collection is called Santa Claws and I have 6 of the 9 polishes to show you today. There are lots of pics, so get comfy! :)

First, is Mrs. Claws, a gorgeous pink holo! Jen description: "Dark pink linear holographic. Mrs. Clause's  go-to nail polish." ;) Application was great and the formula was fantastic. This is 3 coats in indirect sunlight. This holo will have a bit of a price increase compared to the normal price due to the expensive holo pigment it uses.


And taken with flash...love this holo!





Next, we have the namesake of the collection- Santa Claws! Jen's description: "White, red, and green matte squares in a clear base. Looks to me like Santa's outfit. The black squares look like his belt buckle. May be a little thick but no fishing required." I really like this one! The application was really easy and my bottle wasn't too thick at all. I did one coat and then placed some glitters to fill in some areas. I only wish there were a few more green squares in here. I layered Santa Claws over Essie Good as Gold.





I am so excited about this next one! This is Candy Cane and it's definitely one of my favorites. Jen's description- "White creme/jelly base with cherry red matte and metallic hex and some metallic green hex with a green sparkle." This actually reminds me of peppermint bark...yum! So this polish is sheer but can be built to full coverage like I did here. You can also layer it over an opaque color to cut down on coats, but I really wanted to capture the layers of suspended glitter and the jelly- like quality this has. I think this is 4 coats. The big red glitters do require some fishing which is typical of glitter that size. Candy Cane just makes me happy!




And here we have Noel. This should be called Christmas Floam! haha It's pretty awesome. Jen's description- "Red, white, and neon green ultra-fine matte hex glitters plus metallic green sparkle." I layered one coat over China Glaze Glittering Garland and my ring finger is 3 coats to show you how cool this can be with full coverage! I think this is a standout for sure and the formula was perfect.




We are almost finished! This is Just Elfing Around. When I first opened my package, this was the one that got me most excited to use just by looking at the bottle and I was definitely not disappointed once it was on my nails. Jen's description- "Pastel green, white, cherry red hex plus silver and lime green holo hex." I did one coat over China Glaze Holly Day and got really even coverage. I keep saying this but this is a fave of mine too!



Look how pretty it looks in the bottle!


And the final polish I have from the Santa Claws collection is Silent Night. Check this one out...it's got shapes! Jen's description- "Deep navy blue true jelly polish with a purple-ish pink shimmer, holo moons, stars and hexes." It's seriously an amazing polish to look at and the name fits perfectly. Not gonna lie, it was a bit of a pain to to get the shapes out so I recommend painting it on and worry about placing the shapes afterwards. That way you get even coverage of the base. I layered this over Wet N Wild Saved By the Blue, but I would choose a darker base for next time.




 So there you have it! I love them all for different reasons. I think this is a well rounded collection for the holidays. Don't forget there are still 3 more that are in it as well!
