THEFACESHOP Holiday 2015 Trendy Nails Nail Polish Collection: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
Have you tried THEFACESHOP nail polishes before? If not, the Holiday 2015 Nail Polish Collection ($20 CAD) is a great kit to invest in. With ten full-sized Trendy Nails Nail Polish from the brand, this set comes in an adorable and festive tub that's also great for gifting. To see some swatches and my thoughts on all these polishes, click......
THEFACESHOP Nail Polish Collection
Packaging:
The lovely giftable collection comes in a plastic tub with the polishes arranged around the inside perimeter. All the polishes are full-sized but they are only 7ml each, which is about half the size of polishes from most brands. These have an average-sized brush tip that makes application simple and easy.

RD302:
This is a classic bright tomato red cream with a very smooth and pigmented finish. I used two coats for the swatches below.

PK110:
A very pretty medium pink, PK110 is super opaque and pigmented. I almost got away with one coat but I used two for the swatches below.

GR02:
This is a lovely jade green cream. The formulation is smooth, buttery, and rich. I used two coats for the swatches below.

BL02:
This is a medium blue cream. The formulation seems slightly sheer but with two coats it gives an even and full coverage.

OR202:
A soft peachy nude, OR202 is a very sheer polish. I had to use three coats just for the swatches below, which still aren't fully even.

BK01:
This is a simple black cream. The formulation is surprisingly sheer for a black. I used two coats for the swatches below.

PP01:
Another disappointingly sheer color, PP01 required three coats for a full semi-opaque coverage. For a dark oxblood like this, the sheerness is quite appalling.

GLI03:
This is a pale pink pearl with a frosty finish. The formulation is a tad streaky but not too sheer; I used two coats for the swatches below.

GLI040:
The first of the glitter toppers from the collection, GLI040 is a festive fine golden glitter. The formulation is excellent, fully packed with glitters for an even coverage.

GLI002:
A mixture of shiny silver hexagon glitters of various sizes, GLI002 has an okay formulation. I personally prefer some more glitters but the coverage is fairly even (although sparse).
