Trimming the Tree by 365 Days of Color

Ready for another Christmas polish? It's another 365 Days of Color! (Check out Santa Baby here.) While it's a bit late to be ordering Christmas colors for this year, there's always next! Plus, this color is just gorgeous, even if it does SCREAM Christmas :)

Trimming the tree is opaque enough to be worn on its own in a few coats, but as I was silly and only ordered a mini, I wanted to conserve as much as possible! Swatches shown, L-R: three coats of Trimming the Tree alone, and one coat over Sinful Colors Exotic Green, Fingerpaints Tough Art to Follow and Sinful Colors HD Nails.

I finally settled on two coats of Trimming the Tree over Sinful Colors Exotic Green. Topped with Seche Vite, photos taken indoors under a "natural" light bulb.

Sunny from 365 Days of Color says that "Trimming the Tree is the perfect green crelly. It is a jelly at first but can be built up to a cream opaque color! Trimming the Tree is packed with small tan and sand colored square glitter along with small and medium green hex glitter. It really gives me the feeling of a Christmas tree and the fact that it smells JUST LIKE PINE makes it even better!"

Love love love it! The green plus gold and brown, not to mention the PINE scent, definitely make this a specifically Christmas polish, and I don't think I'll pull it out at any other time of year, but that means that it will last me for years to come, right? 

The polish applied perfectly, and would look stunning alone. I have zero complaints about application!The scent is definitely pine, and is a bit strong. If you're extremely sensitive to scents, or are just not a fan of pine scent, this is not the polish for you. I say extremely sensitive, as I tend to be sensitive to scent as well, and while the pine scent was strong at first, it didn't give me any issues with headaches or nausea, as some scents can do. The scent is still evident through topcoat, and lasted all day without being overpowering. 

Have you tried any 365 Days of Color products yet? They can be purchased here, and in addition to the amazing polish, Sunny also sells hand made cuticle oils and balms, as well as a brand new hand creme!
