I could think of no better way to kick off December than with my favorite type of polish.  China Glaze Phat Santa (‘Tis the Season to be Naughty and Nice, Holiday 2010) is a deep, cherry red creme:

Picture taken in sunlight.  This applied well, but the formula was a little jelly-like in terms of opacity, so I used three coats.  Even though it is built to opacity, with the nature of the formula it looks very glassy.  It still has that translucent sort of vibe without any actual VNL.   Ahh, it feels good to be wearing a red creme again.  The darker ones are especially sexy; they make me think of burlesque and old Hollywood glamour (and half-moon manicures!)  I paired this with OPI Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow on my toes.
