Today I have for you the third and final polish from this year’s OPI Ulta holiday exclusive mini set; Stuff My Stocking. This hasn’t been my favorite holiday mini set. My all time favorite set is the Holi-Daze set from 2010 though I did like 2011’s Deck Your Nails set as well. Unfortunately this year’s set just didn’t live up to those of the past. Last Minute Shopper isn’t anything special though admittedly is a nice magenta/red and Skip the Gift Wrap is a really frosty green that I just didn’t like. I kind of thought Gift Cars for Everyone! would save the day. It’s rare I run across a dark purple I don’t love. Sadly, I don’t love this one.
Gift Cards for Everyone is a blackened purple with sparse blue microglitter. Sounds gorgeous. Looks gorgeous going on the nail. And then….it’s not so gorgeous. Once this polish dries the blue microglitter that would make this polish unique in the overpopulated land of almost black purple polishes almost disappears completely. Sad.
That being said…there is nothing wrong with this polish. It’s just kind of there. Application was fine (I used three coats) and it wore wonderfully.
I can now definitely say there is no reason to run out to purchase this Stuff My Stocking mini set.
There are more swatches below the jump.
