Gift of the Melly: Jacki's Who-ville Christmas Swatches + GIVEAWAY!

Press Sample
Sponsored Giveaway

Good morning, readers! It's DECEMBER!! How did that happen? Time is flying but I am thrilled that it's Christmas time! We've put up our Christmas tree and started planning our shopping lists. It will be here before we know it. 

This morning's post is exciting! I was asked to take part in the Silly Bee's Chickadees Gift of the Melly this year. It's a collection of collaboration polishes that are inspired by each participating blogger's favorite holiday movie scene. $2 of each bottle sold will be donated to the blogger's charity of choice!

My polish is called Jacki's Who-ville Christmas. It was inspired by the scene in How The Grinch Stole Christmas where the Whos down in Who-ville wake up on Christmas morning and start to sing and celebrate together despite the fact that The Grinch stole all of their gifts and decorations. 

In the polish, we were able to capture the multiple colors in that scene, centered around the glowing golden star of Christmas spirit. It's a clear base packed with tons of golden shimmer and hexes in holo pink, holo purple, lime green, pink, and orange. You can layer it over any color-- today I am showing it over a simple black creme to showcase the different colors.

This is one coat of Silly Bee's Chickadees Jacki's Who-ville Christmas over a black creme with top coat. ONE COAT, it's seriously that packed. It was suspended well in the bottle and spread nicely. 

My charity/organization of choice is Polished Girlz. $2 from each of Jacki's Who-ville Christmas will go directly to them! Who wouldn't want to spread the love of nail polish and sparkle to those in need? Polished Girlz paint nails and teach the importance of hand washing to those with special needs and frequently hospitalized patients. I am so happy to help support them with this Gift of the Melly.

What do you think of my Gift of the Melly polish collaboration? I really love how it turned out and I hope you do, too. There are a limited number of bottles available starting today so don't hesitate if you would like to own a bottle! It's for a good cause, and is super fun and sparkly! Do you have any Dr. Seuss lovers around you? It would make a perfect gift this holiday season! 

Jacki's Who-ville Christmas is available for $10 at the Silly Bee's Chickadees shop below. Remember, $2 from each bottle sold goes directly to Polished Girlz!

  1. You know I'm not a huge fan of glitter but I love this one! So pretty! (And The Grinch is my favorite too!)

  2. This is fabulous! Looks great layered over a dark color, and I'm sure it would be gorgeous over all sorts of shades! :D
